The reigning king of mainstreamed geekery is heading to Saturday Night Live this weekend, taking his first turn as host on the longstanding NBC sketch show. Thatís right: The Big Bang Theoryís Jim Parsons is mere days away from helming the good ship SNL as it returns from its winter hiatus. And now weíve got the promotional video to prove it! [Bazinga joke!]
We still have a couple of weeks to wait for the next new episode of Saturday Night Live. The Olympics has put NBC into rerun territory for the most part, but the late night sketch comedy series will be back soon enough, and when it does, Jim Parsons will host an episode. The Big Bang Theory star has been lined up to host the March 1. While this is Parson's first time hosting, it isn't the first time for the episode's musical guest. Beck will be returning for his seventh appearance as musical guest in the series.
Well, folks ó thatís a wrap of the Jay Leno era of The Tonight Show. Not that you could tell by the bevy of jokes made at the expense of Lenoís first adieu-bidding to the series. But unlike the last time we were at this juncture, Leno actually seemed ready, or at least, he had come to accept it. Because, as he himself said: itís time. So with his friends Billy Crystal, Garth Brooks, and a bevy of special guests, he finally said goodbye.
A YouTube series may get revamped for television, with a little help from The Big Bang Theoryís Jim Parsons and his producing partner, Todd Spiewak. The two like the looks of Prodigies, a short web series that highlights kids with genius-level skill sets, and have decided to develop a television show based on the popular series.
It seems that the group of guys who, let's face it, don't have all the best luck in the world with the fairer sex are getting quite an attractive guest star for the upcoming season of The Big Bang Theory. Overall their success with women could be summed up in a few words, few and far between. However, this may soon change as there's a new sexy geek coming to the cerebral CBS sitcom.
I can't say I really know that much about the Nickelodeon sitcom iCarly but the show is lining up some more impressive guest stars for its fourth season. Yes, guest stars plural... and both are very high-profile, one being an Emmy nominated actor and the other, well, the other is the First Lady.
