Bill Nye the Science Guy faints on USC stage

LOS ANGELES The 54-year-old host of the Emmy-winning 1990s TV show "Bill Nye the Science Guy" apparently fainted on stage Tuesday night.

Campus safety officers and paramedics responded, but it's unclear if Nye was treated.

A student witness said that Nye collapsed in mid-sentence at the podium. About 10 seconds later, Nye apparently regained consciousness and asked the audience how long he was out.

Nye also told the audience that he experienced a similar incident earlier that same day.
