While this episode was good for a few chuckles mainly courtesy of the big three of Tracy, Jack and Liz, this was by no means worthy of season premiere status. The jokes all seemed like the kind of thing we had heard a dozen times, or at this point, four years into 30 Rock's lifespan, would expect from the characters.
For every line about Tracy being afraid of a certain elevator, there was something irrelevant and unentertaining that Kenneth would say.
Season four premiere disappointed as a whole, but it is still one of TV's elite shows. That has not changed.
