Neil deGrasse Tyson addresses accusations of sexual misconduct

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is addressing allegations made by at least 3 women into claims of sexual misconduct.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is set to return as host of his two shows — “Cosmos” and “StarTalk” — on Fox and National Geographic following the completion of an internal investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations made against him last year.

The networks confirmed to Fox News on Friday that, "The investigation is complete, and we are moving forward with both 'StarTalk' and 'Cosmos.'"

"'StarTalk' will return to the air with the remaining 13 episodes in April on National Geographic, and both Fox and National Geographic are committed to finding an air date for 'Cosmos.' There will be no further comment," the statement concluded.
