I caught the series premiere and must say if it stays this good all season, it will move into my top five shows mot to miss.
Tina Fey was great, but I loved how she did not give herself all the good lines. Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan were great. IF Tracy Morgan was this funny when he was with SNL, he would have been a bigger player. I also liked the supporting characters. Hopefully they can keep this up.
Also, no laugh track makes it even better. The funny thing is my top comedies, Scrubs, Earl and The Office, along with 30 Rock, do not have a laugh track. Also, Help Me help You has no laugh track and I am enjoying that show too. Coincidence?
...that motherfucker is always spiked with pain.....

I really noticed the laugh track thing tonight, after 30 Rock, I watched 20 Good Years' and although it was entertaining, I found the laugh track really annoying. I hope they lose that.
30 Rock was very good, and I imagine will be on for a few seasons.
Alec Baldwin's been rocking it on a consistent basis for some time now, going back as far as GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS.
To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
Funnier than it had any right to be (which doesn't say a whole lot, yes, but still). Paul Rudd's timing (as far as playing someone with no sense of timing whatsoever) was impeccable. Too bad they put most of the best bits in the commercials.
