30 Rock Third Season Premiere
October 29, 2008
Just a friendly reminder that the third season premiere of 30 Rock is Thursday night, October 30 on NBC, 9:30 PM EST. Owing to the wonder of the Interweb, I was able to catch a sneak preview of the premiere episode, and it’s good, it’s good. It’s called “Do Over,” and it picks up a few months after the wild second season finale, with Devon (Will Arnett) still running GE, and Jack (Alec Baldwin) looking to reclaim the mantle. Meanwhile, Liz (Tina Fey) is looking to adopt a baby and ends up having to field a visit from a very anal retentive adoption agency representative (Megan Mullally) to the chaotic set of her variety show, “TGS with Tracy Jordan.” Tracy himself is busy glorying in the success of his porn video game, irking Jenna (Jane Krakowski), who feels entitled to some of the profits. And if you don’t know who all these people are, well, you should go rent or buy the previous 30 Rock seasons on DVD, and catch the hell up. 30 Rock‘s won the Emmy for Best Comedy Series two years in a row, but it still hasn’t caught fire with TV audiences, and if you’re one of the people who hasn’t been watching it, well, then I blame you. Seriously, this is the best TV comedies ever, with great characters, endlessly quotable dialogue and if you watch it, then you’ll see more of that woman who’s been doing that killer Sarah Palin impression on Saturday Night Live the past few weeks. Also, you’ll laugh. A lot. So tune in tomorrow night on NBC, or else watch it online, but watch it.
