Show Summary

Dealing with life in a studio at NBC's 30 Rockefeller Plaza (the title is a shortening of that), the show centers around Liz Lemon, played by Saturday Night Live's Tina Fey, who's the head writer of The Girlie Show. When her old boss dies and a new boss comes in (Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy), demanding the addition of a volatile former movie star (and re-branding the show TGS with Tracy Jordan in the process), Liz must figure out how to keep things running smoothly without losing her mind. Jane Krakowski plays Liz's friend Jenna Maroney, the former headlining star who's all too aware her time to rely on her look is running out. Tracy Morgan plays Tracy Jordan, and out-of-control comedy star whose movie career vanished. Scott Adsit plays producer (and Liz's confidant) Pete Hornberger. Judah Freidlander is writer Frank Rossitano, a slovenly man who's into porn and comic books. Jack McBrayer plays NBC page Kenneth Parcell, a naive Georgia man who seems to always let NYC get the best of him. The series won 16 Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series - Elaine Stritch - Hiatus, Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series - Tim Conway - Subway Hero, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series - Alec Baldwin, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series - Tina Fey, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series - Cooter, Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series - Reunion, Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (half-hour) And Animation - Episode 210, Outstanding Picture Editing for a Comedy Series (Single or Multi-Camera) - Apollo, Apollo, Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing For A Comedy Series - Last Lunch and Outstanding Casting For A Comedy Series.moreless

    • I can't believe I liked this show. One of the worst sitcoms ever!

      I hate 30 Rock with a burning Nazi-like passion, I hate it almost as much as PETA, SOPA and PIPA, Almost Naked Animals, Breadwinners, Sanjay and Craig, Uncle Grandpa, Problem Solverz, Secret Mountain Fort Awesome, MLP FIM, Harvey Beaks, TMNT, Chalkzone and Fanboy and Chum Chum. I HATE 30 ROCK SO MUCH!!!! ONE OF THE WORST SHOWS EVER! Glad it's cancelled. I can't believe I liked it back then.

      When the shows not running, it appears these characters are just as silly off camera and they just don't know it. From Jack to Tracy to Jenna while Liz is more grounded. Even she can't contain herself sometimes. It's surreal and pops in many celeb cameos but utilizes them well. There's bizarre, subtle, and meta humor. There may even be jabs at the low brow-ness of SNL (not a fan). Its unpredictable fun

      I can't stop laughing. This is probably the best show in history.

      The cast is great, what i simply can't stand it the dialogue they talk like they are in a tv. setting up every joke kind of seems weird for a sitcom with a plot. especially in the first 4 seasons i felt that tina fey was still taking an "SNL" approach to the writing which doesn't unless it's in a sketch show, which this is not. toward the end i felt that the characters finally started to develop instead of staying mono tonedmoreless
