Franklin Institute's Derrick Pitts and chef-restaurateur Jose Garces will have lights in their eyes.

Philadelphians on the tube

Look for chef-restaurateur Jose Garces (Amada, Tinto, Distrito, Chifa) at 8:50 a.m. Tuesday on NBC’s Today show. The 2009 James Beard Award winner for Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic will discuss his first cookbook, Latin Evolution, and prepare halibut fish tacos from the book. Garces' next restaurant, Village Whiskey, is now expected to open at 20th and Sansom Streets in late July.

Set your DVR for 12:35 a.m. Thursday on CBS, as Derrick Pitts, chief astronomer at the Franklin Institute, will talk about Galileo on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
