Bill Nye, the man who taught every ‘90s kid about science, recently revealed which TV show most accurately depicts scientific activities. If you guessed Our Planet, Cosmos, or even Nova — well, you’d better check your math.

In fact, Bill Nye the Science Guy found the most correct demonstration of science appeared in Madam Secretary, the CBS series that ran for six seasons. To boot, the dramatic program actually revolved around politics, not science.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly at Comic-Con late last month, he pointed to one particular scene in Madam Secretary that earned his stamp of approval for accuracy.

“The show Madam Secretary, the way they dealt with a nuclear disaster was pretty good. It was the way you would really do it,” Nye said.

Nye addressed a wide range of topics in the interview. In particular, he talked extensively about The End Is Nye, an upcoming natural-disaster program, Deadline reports. Nye, Family Guy creator (and well-known science enthusiast) Seth MacFarlane, and Brannon Braga created the docuseries.

Specifically, the docuseries will demonstrate how science can stave off or lessen the devastation that natural disasters often cause. All six episodes of The End Is Nye will debut August 25 on Peacock.

The streaming service debuted a trailer for the program on July 23.

Story continues after the video.

Talk about a busy year for Bill Nye the Science Guy. Earlier this year, he married Liza Mundy, a successful journalist and author, in a ceremony at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

The event was held in Washington, D.C. at the Smithsonian Institution’s beautiful Haupt Garden.

In true science nerd fashion, Star Trek actor Robert Picardo officiated the ceremony where Nye and Mundy read those they wrote themselves. According to People‘s inside source, their words were “equal parts moving and comical.
