Mayim Bialik will host the Candid Camera reboot, which will air on TV Land, the home for forgotten shows and actors, heavily edited reruns that lack true closing credits, and odd show start times to insert more commercials.

That's what I was trying to figure out. She's on pretty much every episode of "Big Bang Theory" and has been for a few years... why is she going to the land where former stars go to slowly die?

I thought she had a PhD in some neurological (too lazy to google) field. The only impression I used to have of her was that I respected a young actress who was driven enough to leave her career to study to get a real job.

Guess my impression of her was wrong.

Yeah but she didn't go to some Ivy League college for a BA in some BS degree, she went whole hog. So what if she went back to TV after that. Some neurological (too lazy to google) field sounds boring.

She openly admits that she only came back for the money. Being on BBT for several years has probably fattened her bank account back up, so a hosting gig on 3rd-tier cable where you don't have to work very hard and still get a decent paycheck might be exactly what she wants.

She has a PhD in neuroscience. Are there no science jobs available? They told us STEM was the best way to ensure an income...

Now, if she wants to act because she wants to act, great. But why take a lame hosting job?

Not to mention, the availability of hidden/security/go-pro camera videos on the internet has well and truly scratched America's voyeuristic itch. It's passe. I fail to see how a Candid Camera type of show can find a demographic younger than the steadily-dying technologically illiterate oldsters.

I'm a neuroscientist. She's never published anything beyond her dissertation, which only did blood tests and behavioral evaluations on 51 people. Probably enough for a paper in a middling journal (judging from just what's available in my link), but nothing ever made it to a peer-reviewed journal in the 7 years since her defense, as far as I can see.

It's weird that her half dozen conference presentations during grad school were all single-author. Bialik must've had some special arrangement with UCLA in which she didn't do the normal thing & work in someone's lab. In any case, she has made zero apparent impact in neuroscience research.

Some people who get PhDs really shouldn't. UCLA probably went with the positive press of having a B-list celeb (at the time) get a doctorate than the likely weird negative press that would have accompanied the failure of a B-list celeb's thesis defense.

She was on Howard Stern talking about this and potty training kids from birth. No diapers ever. She says that infants give signals they are about to pee and poop. She said that her kids were potty trained at 1 yr old but still had some accidents. Howard said, that means they arent trained yet.

Went to the TV Lamd showcase at Comic Con yesterday.  They showed the trailer for Candid Camera.  They're new bits, it's not a repackaging of the old stuff.  Crowd went. It's when they mentioned who was hosting.

Interesting. Another question - people here have said that her nutty stances on vaccines and other issues have made her an outcast in the scientific community. Do you think there's a basis for that?

Let's say she was respected as a neuroscientist. Would her anti-vax position keep her from getting hired?

She's not so much an outcast in the scientific community as much as a non-entity (regarding her scientific impact), who happens to be trading on her degree in combination with her fame to promote unorthodox and dangerous ideas.

Her PhD is mentioned in every article that credulously supports her attachment parenting or antivax whackaloonery, but they'd probably do that--to a lesser effect, I'm sure--if she only had her B.S. in neuroscience. It's just one more stupid appeal to authority to throw out there, I guess.

If Bialik was a respected neuroscientist, her views might make it more difficult to get hired somewhere--anti-scientific views generally don't help you on the science job market. It really depends on the university and the faculty search committee; having a controversial celebrity on your faculty roster has some financial & press benefits as well... For example, Peter Duesberg, Michael Behe, Peter Singer, Ward Churchill, Bill Ayers, Jonathan Katz and Roger Pielke, Jr (among many others) have or currently hold professorships at legit universities.

http://celebritybabies.people.com/2009/06/04/mayim-bialik-talks-atta ch ment-parenting-with-cbb/


So the first article is her saying that she doesn't care to talk about it and that she's never told anyone whether or not to vaccinate their children, and the second article has her saying,

We are a non-vaccinating family, but I make no claims about people's individual decisions. We based ours on research and discussions with our pediatrician, and we've been happy with that decision, but obviously there's a lot of controversy about it.

At best, this tells me that she's made a personal decision for her own family that I don't agree with (with a chunk of that blame falling on her pediatrician) and that she doesn't have a strong enough opinion to tell others what they ought to be doing.

I'm sorry, but this hardly seems matches up to the impression of a screaming anti-vaxxer that I was expecting based on the comments in this thread.

As for attachment parenting, I couldn't give a fark. Stupid parenting trends are stupid, but hardly unique.
