When Howard said he could see his life passing in front of his eyes, for a second I thought this was going to be a clip show. I'm glad it wasn't!

After reading the vanity card, my wife got upset with me that we weren't holding hands. Damn you Chuck Lorre!

I mean the hair. When his hair's not slicked down.

That's a really nice pic of Helberg. I think he looks ok (except for being so tiny) when he is NOT Wolowitzified. Wolowitz creeps me out, but Helberg isn't bad looking at all.

I really liked him on the unfortunately short-lived Studio 60. He played one of the cast members and many weeks he was doing an impression of Nicolas Cage.

Wow, didn't remember him from that show.. I thought the show was excellent.. (though in retrospect, 30 Rock is by far the better of the two "it's like behind the scenes at SNL" shows that premiered that year).

It's by far the longest lasting. I wouldn't say "better". I've tried repeatedly and I have never yet managed to watch an entire episode of "30 Rock", it's just too awful. I don't know how it survived and "Studio 60" didn't.

Studio 60 was better TV. 30 Rock is better comedy.

I am, apparently, of the wrong generation, as I've never yet seen anything remotely humorous (let alone actually funny) on 30 Rock. And I like Tina Fey. Unfortunately, I absolutely can not stand Tracey Morgan. In anything.

But a lot of the "newer, hipper" shows have that effect on me, including SNL itself, which no longer targets my sense of humor, so I'm sure it's just me.

ETA: huh. If Wikipedia is to be believed, "Studio 60" had better ratings than "30 Rock", but was cancelled as it was more expensive to produce. They also note that if you include DVR viewers, the ratings went way up.

Just a heads up for those who like to talk about the charms of particular actors over the lifespan of multiple shows, there's a thread running now which may be of interest:

Here's what you do when you see an "ugly" person.
First, understand that someone is probably in love with them. So I try and see what the person that loves them sees- I look for the feature that I think the lover loves most.
Helberg has beautiful eyes- just very, very nice.

Try it in a mall or somewhere sometime- there is something attractive about everyone. You just have to be able to see it. Some people take more looking, that's all.

That's exactly me as well. Never have seen what the attraction is for 30 rock. And I also hate Morgan...

Well I'm guilty of not doing this but I also acknowledge that with my odd taste in men, that I'm sure others are the same. So although I get confused as to why some people are found attractive (see Tom Cruise, Ryan Gosling and various other 'heart throbs') I don't judge others that do. I just someones feel the need to verbalize my thoughts on the matter because I'm an opinionated person.

He played Alex Dwyer, one of the lesser characters that filled out the Studio 60 show within a show. He didn't get a lot of screen time outside the show within a show, if I recall.

Here's a clip of him doing "The Nicolas Cage Show" parody in the fictional Studio 60 SNL-like show.

There are two sides to 30 Rock. I also can't stand *anything* with the Jenna or Tracey Jordon characters. I've started FF through those parts, because most of the time, they are in the same scenese together. OTOH, the scenes with Tiny Fey and Alec Baldwin are really brilliant. I watch those two or three times to get all the tiny, quick lines they say.
