I don’t watch a lot of TV these days. But the one new show I got into this past season was Tina Fey’s “30 Rock.” I love how she squeezes the sweetest juice from her writers’ mind-grapes! And I expect her show will be rewarded with an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy. (We’ll know soon.)
I pulled up some “30 Rock” clips on the ol’ Video Bar. Enjoy.
UPDATE (07/19/07): Cheers and hoorays to Tina Fey and her team at “30 Rock.” Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and “30 Rock” is up for six major awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series.
Fey and Alec Baldwin are nominated in the lead-actor categories. And the show got a best-director nomination and two writing nominations, including one for Ms. Fey. (That would be the “Tracy Does Conan” episode, “mind-grapes” and all.)
Elaine Stritch was nominated in the guest-actress category as Donaghy’s mother... but I guess Paul Ruebens’s inbred European prince was too out-there for ’em.
It’s all cool. This’ll give me something to root for on Emmy night.
