For a period in the show’s 4th and 5th seasons, it became incredibly hip to decry the downfall of 30 Rock. But suck it haters, because they just managed to have one of the best final seasons of all time. Liz Lemon was always going to be a workaholic with a tendency towards bitchiness, swearing, […]

The past week or so has had some amazing sitcom moments. As 30 Rock winds down to tonight’s finale, Kenneth was passed the torch as the new President of NBC and Liz & Criss greeted their new 8-year-old twins at the airport, a mini Jenna and Tracy. But the real standout moment for me came […]

TV comedy is in a major phase right now. A shocking amount of the primetime network schedule is made up of sitcoms, while a fair number of hourlong comedies and dramedies still pepper the drama blocks. There are a few standalone hours of network sitcoms- like ABC and NBC’s 9pm Tuesday offerings (Happy Endings & […]

Thursday has always been a great night of TV. It’s the night on which NBC has been offering up the greatest sitcoms in history decade after decade (even if you’re a misguided Friends-hated hipster, you can’t argue with Seinfeld); it’s the night that played home to the game-changing Survivor and juggernaut Idol for years; Thursday […]

Andy’s rousing campaign ditty has been stuck in my head since I watched Thursday’s truly phenomenal episode of Parks & Recreation, and probably will continue to be stuck there for many hours to come. I know, I know, I’m getting repetitive with my exuberant love of this show, but it’s gotten to that point where […]

Rachael’s already talked about the phenomenal Valentine’s Day episodes from New Girl, How I Met Your Mother, Up All Night and (my personal favourite) The Middle. But the schmoopiest holiday seemed to reach every show on the air this year, so I thought I’d add a few to the list: E) Glee. It’s been weeks since […]

“I’m not jealous”- Troy is jealous of Jeff’s dinner with his best friend Abed. (Community) Shirley as Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction. (Community) “I want you take this money and buy a book, it’s called ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective People’!”- Vance tries to help out a stripper at his bachelor party. (Perfect Couples) […]

30 Rock this week. Aaron Sorkin and Tina Fey (Liz Lemon) sit at a conference table waiting for interview with Nick Lachey to work on the NBC reality competition show The Sing Off. Sorkin: You here for the Sing Off gig? Fey: Yeah, do I know you? Sorkin: You know my work. Walk with me. […]

True Love: Other Stuff Edition
  Kelly Bedard

It’s Valentine’s time and TV is in full romantic bloom. Here are our favourite romantic episodes of the week: 1) Glee  (We’ve covered this already. Twice) 2) Community (This too. Just once) 3) Modern Family The reprisal of Clyve and Juliana, Gloria turning Valentine’s day into a competition, Manny’s quest for Hayley’s love, Cam and […]

“The Sisyphus of Reagany”
  Kelly Bedard

Last night’s 30 Rock was close to perfectly conceived. The clever B story had Jenna and Kenneth pairing up once again (always a great team), this time to con an ice cream shop. The duo’s hijinks played out nicely, but they really upped the ante in teaming up with Kelsey Grammar to pull a long […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

Seriously. He takes a recurring guest role on innovative comedy 30 Rockand continually fricken rocks it. On top of that, he’s willing to show up for five minutes in the middle of a live episode not ONCE but twice. He’s one of the most famous actors, acclaimed thespians, and overall great guy moviestars of our […]

God Save the Queen
  Kelly Bedard

There are hundreds of reasons to love Queen Latifah. Tons and tons of them. I love everything she does, she’s just so cool! The newest reason? This week’s 30 Rock. The clever-as-hell episode tackled diversity in the workplace on both sides of the issue and didn’t skimp on the always-funny punches at NBC. A political […]

I realize I have fallen behind on the many many things happening in the TV world right now. It’s finale time, which means it’s My TV Season Wrap-Up time so my plate is quite full of writing to be done. In the mean time, in case you haven’t been following @MyEntWorld on twitter (which you […]

This week on 30 Rock, perennially single gal Liz Lemon met the perfect man. And as we’ve all known since way before he first figured out “it’s not [his] fault” thanks to Robin Williams , the perfect man is Matt Damon. This is guest casting at its finest, like Brad Pitt playing the charter member […]

Liz Lemon Dreams Big
  Kelly Bedard

In one of the more genuine moments of the often broad comedy machine that is 30 Rock, Liz Lemon monologued last week to a poor unsuspecting dodgeball player about what she wants in a relationship. I don’t think I’ve ever loved Liz Lemon more: “I’ll tell you what I do want. I want someone who […]

you know what’s always funny?
  Kelly Bedard

Brian Williams jokes! They are always funny, as evidenced by this week’s 30 Rock, last season of SNL and many many Daily Show episodes. Other 30 Rock highlights this week include: – the Horberger system – a Susan Boyle shout-out – Tracy and Jenna working together – a flashback to Liz’s auditioning days – facetious […]

Hey, 30 Rock’s Back To Being Hilarious…YAY!
  Kelly Bedard

The Best Part? All of It. – Tracy tries to kill Betty White by calling her and yelling “boo” then tries to bludgeon Jimmy Fallon after asking him if he’s famous: “I did a movie with Queen Latifa once”. – Jack forces Liz to head down south instead of to Toronto or San Francisco to […]

At the end of a fabulous episode last night, 30 Rock bid farewell to the beautiful Mr. Jon Hamm. To understand why Liz would break up with Mr. Perfect I suggest watching the episode, it’s sort of brilliant and not a cop out at all. As for the rest, they all had great stories too. […]

The Office and 30 Rock, after both having strong showings last week, were sort of underwhelming tonight. The Office‘s plot was pretty weak, in particular. After Michael’s misguided, Willy Wonka-inspired Golden Ticket promotion goes awry (losing the company 50% of their biggest client’s money), David Wallace is looking for someone to blame. One of the […]

Seriously? (In honor of Valentine’s, I thought you all would like a little Jon Hamm. Enjoy, but as a warning, he gets a bit needy when his pyro daughter shows up and his mother/grandmother dies.)

Scroll down for clues as to the identity of the singer who satirically sang while Alec Baldwin, Selma Hayek and the old man went out on the town. 1. He was discovered while performing at a wedding 2.

Tonight’s Golden Globes Award Ceremony left much to celebrate. The most notable being: – KATE WINSLET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After countless fruitless award nominations, my favourite actress finally gets rewarded for her hard work and immeasurable talent. She wins Best Supporting Actress in a Drama for her flawless portrayal of Hannah Schmitz in The Reader, giving a beautiful […]

30 Rock: the Best Reunion since Romy and Michelle
  Kelly Bedard

30 Rock this week could not have been better. This season has been consistently pretty funny but it’s episodes like this that remind me why the Emmys always go Tina Fey’s way. Kenneth, Tracey and Jenna had one of the most amusing B stories ever on the show; actor narcissism is always funny. Jack was his […]

  Kelly Bedard

First of all let me beg your forgiveness for the impossibly bad pun in that title. Now, on to business. Tonight was a night full of FRIENDS (the 90s NBC sitcom, in case you didn’t catch on). Jennifer Aniston’s highly anticipated guest appearance on 30 Rock was pretty funny and FRIENDS references were everywhere (the […]

The woman who is inarguably on top of the world with multiple Emmy wins, the most talked about SNLpolitical impression since Bush Sr., and a massive cult following, has done it again. Check out the fabulous season 3 premiere of 30 Rock a week early over on NBC.com or Hulu.com and see why Tina Fey […]
