If you want, you can all add your own Simon Helberg moment on here. Ones that were in the middle of his tenure.

Post A Quick Timeline: Simon Helberg

This timeline is on one of the shortest serving MADtv cast members of the 8th season, Simon Helberg. Though he never got a large role on the show, and was gone before the season finale, we can't forget that he was a cast member. Now Simon has gone to higher fame, and has most likely forgotten his brief stint on MADtv, but this will make sure that he will always be remembered for the little work he did on MADtv. So ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you the quick Simon Helberg timeline.

2002: Simon gets hired as a feature cast member on MADtv for season 8

November 16, 2002: Simon appears in his first episode (his first sketch is in an NSYNC music video parody, as a reporter).

March 8, 2003: Simon appears in his last episode (his last sketch would be entitled Commercials from Around the World).

Life After MAD

After MADtv, Simon would go on to do more television roles. He had roles on the show Joey, and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, but Simon's biggest role would come as the character Wolowitz, a nerd living in a dorm with other nerds in the show The Big Bang Theory. It is clear that Simon has found a career in Hollywood, and forgotten about MADtv, which probably means that a return to MADtv for him won't be anytime soon.

He was did in by the talent there that season. Paul Vogt, Ike Barinholtz, Ron Pederson, just to much talent for anyone else to break through.

Simon far exceeded my expectations tonight, and contrary to what Google Images would have me believe, the girl was sufficient in the eye candy department. Not a bad show overall. I won't be marking my calendar or anything, but if I ever spot it again while flipping through the digital guide, I assume I'll tune in.

"The Big Bang Theory" premiered tonight.


I watched it. It wasn't tears streaming down funny, but it definitely had its moments. Somewhat stereotypical in the hopless nerd, blonde bimbo way but it was still funny.


Although I don't see it lasting a full season.

I spotted another MADtv alum on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

Simon played Alex Dwyer. I think it was small role, but he was on it. Weird after we just saw Chris Hogan a while back.
