NBC (ended 2013)
Today's edition of USA Today has a nice story about Jerry Seinfeld's involvement in the episode and what the Emmy win could mean for the show. You can read it here.
Also, Zap2It has posted a nice article about the show, featuring a little Q&A with Jane Krakowski (Jenna) and Jack McBrayer (Kenneth). They discuss their summers, the Emmy win, working with Seinfeld, their favorite scenes, and breaking character during filming. Good stuff...check it out here.
This episode is also #1 on Zap2It's "TV Best Bets" for tonight and USA Today's "Critic's Corner."
Last night, Alec Baldwin appeared on Letterman and Tina Fey appeared on Conan. Both were quite funny, and Tina looked amazing.
Hopefully all of this publicity, coupled with the Seinfeld cameo and the Emmy win, will result in a boost in ratings!
I've never been much of a Seinfeld fan, and I must say that I was rather underwhelmed by his involvement. He had a few funny lines, but mostly, he was just there to give Jack an interesting story...which is fine for those of us who already watch the show. But I think that most folks who tuned in solely due to Jerry's involvement will be disappointed.
Overall, it was just a decent episode. Not great, not bad...just kinda good. The best line was right at the beginning, with Jack mentioning "America's Top Pirate" and "MILF Island" as his successful summer shows. Liz being "something old" was pretty funny too. Also enjoyed Kenneth's response to Tracy's "proposal." YES! YES! A THOUSAND TIMES YES!
I wasn't disappointed, but I can see how new viewers might've been...and that's what worries me.
