It seems like an eternity since the last episode of “Saturday Night Live
” aired, but it’s back tonight, with the most beloved member of one of television’s biggest shows as host. Jim Parsons
is a semi-unlikely television star, but there are few who don’t know who Sheldon Cooper is at this point, and a large chunk of that goes to Parson’s portrayal of that character. In lesser hands, Sheldon would not be one of the true genuine breakout characters in recent TV history. Tonight, Parsons gets to potentially stretch his wings, in addition to almost undoubtedly delivering “The Big Bang Theory
”-related humor as well. Along for the ride
is musical act Beck for this, the first show in the post-Seth Meyers
Era. Usually, I liveblog the proceedings, but due to personal reasons, I’m opting for the less taxing task of recapping it after the fact.
