“Saturday Night Live” season 39, episode 14: “Jim Parsons/Beck” premieres tonight on NBC.
Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory hosts alongside musical guest Beck on Saturday Night Live when it returns from its mini-hiatus this weekend. This will mark Parsons’ official SNL debut, although the multiple Emmy winner made a cameo — well sort of — back in December.
NBC’s description of “Saturday Night Live” is as follows:
“A late-night comedy show featuring several short skits, parodies of television commercials, a live guest band and a pop-cultural guest host each week. Many of the SNL players have spun off successful independent comedy and/or movie careers from here. With live show surprises, especially those timed to the national elections – from Barack Obama’s surprise walk-on, Hillary Clinton’s performance opposite Amy Poehler, and Sen. John McCain’s “Weekend Update” appearance – “SNL” is making headlines and influencing the political dialogue while skewering it at the same time. Beyond politics, the show’s cast of recurring characters and take on pop culture targets remains spot-on. The addition of the show’s Emmy Award-winning SNL Digital Shorts continues to keep the show as current today as it was when it debuted.”
“Saturday Night Live” season 39, episode 14: “Jim Parsons/Beck” airs Mar. 1 on NBC at 11:30 p.m. EST. Check out the preview of the upcoming episode below.
