'30 Rock': How Tina Fey's pregnancy won't change Liz Lemon

Que-Sorpresa

Revel in the glory of motherhood, nerds. Tina Fey has a bun in the oven. But how will the Bossypants author’s recently announced pregnancy affect our pal Liz Lemon? The folks at 30 Rock have yet to reveal if or how Fey’s news will affect the show, but when you really think about it, it doesn’t really matter: Lemon has vaguely resembled a pregnant woman for the last five years (except for the minor detail of getting her period for 61 straight days). While you might be wondering how Fey can work her bundle of joy into next season’s plot, here’s a quick list of ways her pregnancy won’t change a thing, as it already fits in with Lemon’s trademarked quirks:

• Whether she’s wearing it as a joke or not, the slanket aficionado likes her bi-curious fashion choices and DIY finds (Duane Reade bags as underwear) on the larger side, which gives Fey infinite room to hide a growing belly and prevent any dirty looks from that office gossip Brian Williams.  READ FULL STORY

Alec Baldwin: 'I hope '30 Rock' goes on forever'

” — while Tina Fey is promoting her book, and while Fey is five months pregnant — Alec Baldwin took to the Huffington Post this morning to clear the air and toe the company line:

“Gosh.

I want to take the opportunity to state that although my days on network TV may be numbered, I hope 30 Rock goes on forever. Or at least as long as everyone involved desires.

Next year hopefully won’t be the last. Kenneth can run the network. Jenna will get her own talk show. Tracy will become Mayor of New York. Then resign to go raise exotic reptiles. And Lemon will go do … just about anything she sets her mind to.

Here’s to five more seasons.”

'30 Rock': It's time for a Plan B

Last night’s episode of 30 Rock hit a little too close to home. I, like Liz, am a writer. And last night’s episode just confirmed that I’ll never be able to jet set around the world in economy plus.

You see, while Tracy was still gone saving lives in Africa (AKA hiding out in New York), the network was putting TGS on a forced hiatus. Because you can’t have TGS with Tracy Jordan without Tracy Jordan. It’s an oxymoron, like liberal government, female scientists, and well-paid journalists. READ FULL STORY

'30 Rock': 'Queen of Jordan' makes its debut

I didn’t know St. Patrick granted wishes, but apparently he does. After a way-too-long hiatus, 30 Rock finally returned last night. Well, sorta. The show gave up the typical 30 Rock feel in favor of Queen of Jordan graphics, characters, and subtitles. We were treated to an episode of Queen of Jordan, Angie’s reality show on Bravo. In an over-the-top ode to the Real Housewives franchise, each character had to deal with the stress of being filmed 24-7 by the Queen of Jordan cameras. READ FULL STORY

'30 Rock': The TGS woman-haters club

30-RockImage Credit: Ali Goldstein/NBCHere in its fifth season, TGS seems to have lost its way. You probably don’t even remember this, but TGS (formerly known as The Girlie Show) started as a show for women, starring women. As such, our dear Elizabeth Lemon believes the show should be “elevating the way women are perceived in society.” But it turns out, TGS can’t help but do the opposite. When Jenna ended up on the cool, feminist blog Joan of Snark, Liz discovered the post “TGS Hates Women.” (Note to all humans, JoanOfSnark.com doesn’t really exist. I tried it, and it only redirects you to this NBC page.) With Tracy gone to Africa, Liz thought the show was doing an even better job of featuring women. But all of their women-centric sketches ended with said women getting their periods. It was weird. Then, Lemon got her period and fired everyone. Maybe it’s time to rethink some things.

'30 Rock': Hookup on the Orient Express (Malarkey!)

30-ROCKImage Credit: Ali Goldstein/NBCFresh off her breakup from Pilot Carol, our dear Elizabeth Lemon decided to accept her downward spiral into spinsterhood. She rocked a fanny pack and held her hair back with a chip clip. For icing on her spinster cake, she adopted a cat and named her Emily Dickinson. She completed her look with an oversize hoodie and sweatpants. (But I don’t judge on that last one. Liz Lemon might just be my frumpy fashion icon. Truth.) Jenna wanted to help Liz rebound…sexually. So, she took her to a club that only Lemon could enjoy. At first, Liz was hesitant of the “hipster nonsense” but she came around after meeting the suave Anders. (AKA the yummy Eion Bailey.) The new couple hit it off, complete with a full-on spinning camera kiss outside the bar. It was then I cried, “Malarkey!” READ FULL STORY

'30 Rock': Breaking up and breaking bad

Jack and Avery headed off to Canada for one last rendezvous before their baby arrived. Unfortunately, Baby D had other plans, and decided to make her debut early. READ FULL STORY

'30 Rock': What a surprise!

30-Rock-Brian-Williams-QueImage Credit: Ali Goldstein/NBCQué Sorpresa! That’s “what a surprise” for all you people who don’t speak Spanish or don’t know how to use Google like I cleverly did. And what a surprise it was. I’d never thought I’d live to see the day that Elizabeth Lemon was with child. Then again, it was only a fake pregnancy. But I’m getting ahead of myself here.

Tracy Morgan has more choice words for Sarah Palin

tracy-morgan_240.jpg Image Credit: Bob Charlotte/PR PhotosTracy Morgan had a few delightful shout-outs on the red carpet for the SAG awards last night. He thanked his kidney donor and ex-girlfriend Tanisha, wished his ex-wife a happy birthday, praised the 30 Rock writers, and declared that Sarah Palin is “the hottest MILF in the world!” Not to be pedantic, but Sarah Palin is technically a grandmother.  (Morgan’s love of the ex-governor first came to national attention last week when he said on TNT’s Inside the NBA pregame show that “she’s good masturbation material.”)

If you can’t say hi to your kidney donor and talk about your celebrity fantasies, what’s the point of being famous, PopWatchers?

'30 Rock': Operation Righteous Cowboy Lightning

30-rock-tracy-morganImage Credit: Nicole Rivelli/NBC30 Rock returned this week, and I had to curse their advance-filming schedule. As Liz Lemon gazed upon the New York skyline and admired the buildings that looked like severed robot penises, I noticed absolutely NO snow and slush. Does this mean everything I see on television isn’t real? (Don’t answer that.) READ FULL STORY
