What to Watch on Thursday: Finales for 'Young Sheldon,' 'Atlanta' and more

Big Bang Theory Renewed Season 12

In fact, the below clip was meant to be a part of Thursday's season finale but was cut due to time restraints for the episode.

Mark Hamill had fans praising him to the heavens after his guest stint on "The Big Bang Theory" season finale Thursday.

The big day finally aired in the U.S. on Thursday 10th May with the season 11 finale, and the nerdy nuptials went down a storm with fans, who were left both laughing and crying. We also get season finales tonight for "The Big Bang Theory" (8 p.m.) and "Mom" (9 p.m.).

"Some of those cuts were painful, but anything that wasn't servicing [the central story] fell by the wayside."
We will miss you deeply.

Playing himself, the "Star Wars" actor showed off his comic chops while officiating the wedding of Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik).

"The wedding was a big episode and it seemed like a good chance to pay some tribute to him", The Big Bang Theory showrunner told THR. "When we were writing the wedding episode, it was actually [executive producer] Steve Molaro that had the idea that maybe Professor Hawking had sent them a gift before he passed".

Fun fact: Hamill has known Big Bang Theory star Simon Helberg (Howard Wolowitz) since Helberg was 9-years-old because he went to school with Hamill's son, Nathan. Stephen's final appearance on the show was in the Season 11 premiere, "The Proposal Proposal".
