The Big Bang Theory: Sheldon's Top 13 Bazingas

Jim Parsons

Sheldon (Jim Parsons) rarely kids on The Big Bang Theory, but when he does, you'll know it by the use of the word "bazinga." His "gotcha" catchphrase of choice has taken on a life of its own since Sheldon first uttered it in Season 2. Here are our favorite bazinga moments from the last six seasons (and no, his spontaneous trip in the season finale — watch it here — was not just one big bazinga).

Matt Bomer, Mark Ruffalo

Based on Larry Kramer's 1985 play (which was revived on Broadway in 2011) and adapted for the small screen by Ryan MurphyThe Normal Heart takes a brutal, unflinching look at the onset of the AIDS epidemic in New York City in the early 1980s. The story is told through the eyes of a group of activists who founded the organization Gay Men's Health Crisis to help patients living with the disease.

Weekend Review: HBO's The Normal Heart

Mark Ruffalo, Taylor Kitsch

The heart breaks while tempers violently flare in HBO's The Normal Heart (Sunday, 9/8c), Ryan Murphy's emotionally and politically explosive film version of Larry Kramer's provocative stage drama about the early response, within and outside the gay community, to the '80s AIDS crisis.

Teeming with anger, sorrow, passion and purpose, this powerful and harrowing movie is part tragic love story in plague times, part agitprop manifesto and tribute to tireless activism. "We're not yelling loud enough!" bellows Ned Weeks (an engagingly abrasive Mark Ruffalo), the story's pushy moral conscience, a belligerent scold who refuses to play nice when so many lives are at stake.

Saturday Night Live: Colin Jost Makes His "Weekend Update" Debut

Colin Jost

Saturday Night Live has been on hiatus for a month... and this is the best they could come up with?

The episode that marked the debut of Seth Meyers' replacement Colin Jost at the "Weekend Update" desk was disappointingly low on laughs, featuring one-joke sketches that went on too long (see: Aidy Bryant's hefty Tinkerbell stand-in "Tonkerbell"). Even Kate McKinnon's typically hilarious Ellen impersonation was a bit lackluster. As far as "Weekend Update," there are of course going to be some growing pains in that department but... we miss Seth already.
