Sometimes the things one really wants for Christmas just don’t exist, especially when one is a giant TV fanatic whose mental boundary between real and fictional worlds is thinner than Captain Picard’s hairline. So here are 10 fictitious items that I'd love to see under my tree on Christmas morning.
James Franco’s career is full of hyphens, as he’s a writer-director-producer-actor-social media weirdo, to name just a few things. We can add fictional clairvoyant to that list now, thanks to Franco’s appearance on an episode of 30 Rock where he seems to magically predict the current state of affairs involving Sony’s currently shelved comedy
Today marks the end of an incredible career that has stretched 70 years. Elaine Stritch has passed away at age 89.
Valentine's Day isn't for everyone. Whether you’re single, sick of it all, or somewhere in between, finding a way to distract yourself on the overtly lovey-dovey day is a necessity. But we’re not proponents of the mentality that if you’re not in love you must be miserable and bitter instead. It’s silly, and stupid, and a waste of everyone’s time. Plus what sort of monster would encourage you to be unhappy? (Spoiler Alert: not me.)
Is Alec Baldwin late-night bound? That's the current rumor. The 30 Rock star is reportedly in early talks to host his own show on NBC. Word is that he'd take over the 1:35 a.m. spot, which is currently home to the half-hour interview show, Last Call with Carson Daly.
We still don't really want to admit that 30 Rock has gone off the air once and for all, but given how much we've been thinking about Jack's invention of clear dishwashers since last Thursday, it's probably time to come to terms with it once and for all. The final episode of the wickedly irreverent show went in for a little more sentiment than it usually does
Last night could have been a big night for NBC. With 30 Rock’s series finale and the premiere of Do No Harm there was more than one reason to tune in to the peacock network last night. Unfortunately, while 30 Rock went out on its highest note in two years, Do No Harm barely even even brought in an audience.
It was a sad moment for fans of 30 Rock last night when NBC’s long-running comedy finally finished its run on the network. Luckily, unlike most programs that just settle into reruns, eventually even forgotten by the cable networks that don’t offer enough original programming, 30 Rock will get a shot at infamy with a new flavor of Ben and Jerry’s. Today we learned that flavor will simply be called “Liz Lemon.”
You will be missed 30 Rock and I am ecstatic to see the show go out on such a high note in both its final season and series finale. I was never not happy to go to there with Fey and company.
I haven't watched a series finale as closely as 30 Rock's since Lost went off the air, but I really never expected to have to watch the end of a sitcom as closely as I watched that massive drama. And yet, with its patented rapid-fire jokes and references, 30 Rock crammed a ton of information into its final two episodes
The end of 30 Rock tonight doesn't just mean happy endings for Jack, Liz, and all of the familiar members of the TGS crew. It also means the last we'll see from 30 Rock's vast universe of side characters, the families and girlfriends and boyfriends of our main characters as well as the random recurring roles who help make this world uniquely bizarre and fun to visit
I moved to New York, in the way many of us did, because of television. Not just the lure of the Sex and the City lifestyle or the Seinfeld wit, but the basic "this is the center of the universe" promise, from years of watching the ball drop in Times Square or the daily gaggle waving at the Today show in Rockefeller Center
While 30 Rock fans will be saying goodbye to the series this week, Ben & Jerry’s is making sure that there’s still something to celebrate. They’ll be releasing a new ice cream flavor in honor of 30 Rock at a finale viewing party in New York City.
For the penultimate episode of 30 Rock we again get a stripped down story and a couple of final pieces are moved into place that, which in hindsight, seemed inevitable. Jack is looking for his replacement to head NBC, but his first order of business as C.E.O. is to return Kenneth to his position of page.
As 30 Rock creeps closer and closer to its finale, it just keeps getting stronger and stronger. I think 30 Rock is shaping up to have one of the strongest final seasons for a sitcom ever and I think they might have delivered my favorite episode yet of the year. Line for line the episode was almost entirely quotable.
