  • A former roommate of Liz and Jenna comes to New York, Kenneth lives out a Night Court fantasy

    This was not an episode of 30 Rock. It couldn't be. 30 Rock is the funniest, most creative program on television. This monstrocity was laugh-free and seemed to drag on for ages.

    Yet NBC says it was 30 Rock so maybe it was. After hyping up Oprah Winfrey and Jennifer Aniston's appearances neither delivered. Talk about a waste of a significant amount of money.

    The Kenneth character is just being horribly written right now. The originality and charm from the first two seasons has disappeared in an instant. Actually that dopey and brainless personification is applied to the entire supporting cast right now. You know it is painfully obvious when Harry Anderson, who's a sitcom veteran but has been out of the game for years, outshines pretty much everyone on 30 Rock.

    There was no witty jabs from Jack Donaghy or Liz Lemon and they both seemed to not be on their A game. If 30 Rock wants to avoid cancellation and rack up another consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series they are going to have to churn out better episodes than this inane rubbish.
