The show is hit or miss with me, but Tina Fey is ridiculously cute.

I actually preferred it when they didn't have celebrity cameos but it's still p*ss-funny.

Best show people aren't watching.



Kenneth: I know how you like this cornbread Mr. Jordan.

Tracy: LIKE it? I love this cornbread so much I wanna take it back behind the middle school and get it pregnant.

I love this show, although I have to say the last few episodes (besides last week's which was funny..."how's your mom's pill addiction"...lol) weren't too great. Enough with the guest stars.

And yes Tina is ridiculously cute. It was a nice surprise seeing her on the judges panel on Iron Chef last night!!!

Some of it gets too raunchy and just plain stupid. However, "Believe in the Stars" with Oprah has a hysterical scene with Liz Lemon showing up for jury duty as Princess Leah!

At first, I had mixed feelings about the show because it was renewed instead of Aaron Sorkin's Studio 60 despite its poor ratings.

Studio 60 had better ratings overall that season, but was much more expensive to produce (because of its cast).

However, the show has grown on me. I think Tina Fey does a great job as Liz Lemon, and the guy who plays her page (don't remember his name) is hilarious.

The Oprah guest appearance was particularly funny.

I can't decide if I dislike Alec Baldwin or Tracy Morgan's character more. Good show.

I tried watching 30 Rock a couple months ago on Netflix instant view and was turned off by the first two episodes. I'm so glad I gave it another chance though, because now I find it hilarious. I actually watched 7 episodes today...

I just want to know where the rest of the cast is this season??? There's hardly been any Frank, Toofer, Cerie, Pete, Grizz & Dot-Com...they're responsible for some of the funniest parts in past episodes!

One of the best shows on network TV.

Like it so much I went out and bought five copies of "Gorgasm: The Legend of Dongslayer" and am giving them out for Christmas presents.

Tried to find MILF Island on DVD but no luck.

Precisely. That guy is so irritating.. Alec, Tina, et all are pretty good. I love Alec's delivery on his lines, but Tracy gets under my skin too much.

Oh come now that's nothin' compared to HIMYM where they're looking for the perfect burger... Classic, classic lines there.

I LOVE 30 ROCK!

I've been watching it since the pilot, even the hit and miss eps are some of the best on tv...

While I've missed the supporting cast a bit, I do like when Jenna and Tracy are together, like this past week teaming up on poor Kenneth.

And Alec Baldwin is beyond brilliant.

This may be one of the best lines ever.

The show though, is hit or miss. Sometimes very funny, other times not at all.

I thought his "I thought you made love like an ugly woman - so present and grateful" line was a classic.

Geeze it's a well-written show. Just get rid of the showboating celebs and take it back to the core cast.

The few episodes I have caught are great but I just never sit down and watch it. I really should.
