LOS ANGELES -- Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory” has won his third Emmy for best actor in a comedy.

Parsons, who plays the nerdy Sheldon Cooper in the CBS Thursday night comedy, had won in 2010 and 2011 before earning the hat trick on Sunday.

Parsons is a Houston native.

“The Big Bang Theory” blossomed into television’s most popular comedy this past season, fueled in part by the strong ratings that its reruns are drawing on cable TV.
