The Big Bang Theory: Watch the deleted Stephen Hawking finale tribute

  The Big Bang Theory: Watch the deleted Stephen Hawking finale tribute The season finale was originally supposed to end with a tag scene set after Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy’s (Mayim Bialik) wedding. As Amy and Sheldon celebrate having officiant Mark Hamill’s signature on their marriage license, Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) bring in more wedding presents, one of which they realize was sent by the famous theoretical physicist before his death in March. “We had wanted to do something to honor his passing and his involvement in the show,” executive producer Steve Holland tells EW. “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.” According to Holland, the Big Bang team then reached out to Hawking’s family to get their permission to do the tag scene. “We really wanted to get a chance to reference him and his passing and his importance to the show,” Holland says. “It was hard to because, when it happened, we had already shot three episodes, so there was no way to be super-timely about it, and this seemed like a great chance for us to do it in this big special episode.” The Big Bang Theory will return this fall on CBS.

President Trump and Tony Soprano have the same taste in music, according to "Saturday Night Live."

The NBC variety show opened its season finale on Saturday night with Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump sitting alone in a New Jersey diner. The faux president put a coin in his table's jukebox and suddenly "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey began to play.

Viewers at home have seen this scene before if they watched the series finale of HBO's acclaimed series, "The Sopranos." For the HBO's drama's finale, the titular character and New Jersey mob boss, Tony, plays the song as his family meets him for dinner.

"SNL" followed the iconic scene beat for beat with Baldwin's Trump being joined by his own "family." First was Kate McKinnon's Rudy Giuliani.

"So Rudy, did you go on Fox News last night?" Baldwin's Trump asked.

"Yeah, like 20 times," McKinnon's Giuliani responded. "Don't worry, I told them that you were openly colluding with Russia but ended with, 'SO WHAT?!'"

Ben Stiller's Michael Cohen then joined the table and was asked how his day at work was.

"Really bad," Stiller's Cohen said. "Mostly just preparing to go to jail and stuff."

Then Mikey Day's Donald Trump Jr. sat down and explained that Alex Moffat's Eric Trump was outside trying to "parallel park" his big wheel to no success.

The nice dinner was going well for everyone until Robert De Niro's Robert Mueller appeared and sat alone at a different table.

"Am I the only one that sees that guy?" Baldwin's Trump said referencing Mueller.

On his way to the bathroom, De Niro's Mueller gave Baldwin's Trump a quiet stare down leaving Trump to look frightened into the camera before, just like in "The Sopranos" finale, the scene immediately cut to black.

Then the cast reappeared and said the show's catch phrase, "Live from New York... It's Saturday Night!"
