ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– It’s a new FOX show that has the science community talking. It’s called Cosmos and fans got an early sneak peek at the St. Louis Science Center Tuesday night.

It’s a science lover’s dream, a popular show in the 1980’s recreated with the technology of today and expectations were high so people started lining up at 2 p.m. for a 7 p.m. screening.

Neil Degrasse Tyson is the host of the Cosmos series, replacing the late, legendary scientist Carl Sagen. FOX’s Family Guy Seth Mcfarlane is the executive producer so it’s no surprise FOX was eager to get on board to debut the series.

From the die hard enthusiasts to the littlest of fans, Cosmos hit the spot.

So much so, this Sunday some fans already hit the record button.

Over 200 people showed up for the screening which was only seen in the top 10 markets.

If you want to check out the series it debuts on FOX this Sunday at 8 p.m.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
