'30 Rock' is over: Discuss the series finale!

“Dark times are these.” You’re right, Liz Lemon. Dark times, indeed. We’ve finally come to the end of this seven-season journey. Liz Lemon & Co. have said their final goodbyes. 30 Rock will live on in syndication, our hearts, and frequent night cheese tributes. So let’s recap how it all went down:

In “Hogcock,” part 1 of the finale, Liz was trying to acclimate to her new role as a stay-at-home mom. Jack tried to convince Lemon that she would go crazy without an outlet, but she was sure she could make it work. Further complicating matters, Liz started an all-out message board war with an anonymous Internet nemesis on the website, GothamMoms.com. As it turned out, her nemesis was her own husband, Criss, who was equally struggling in his new role as a working dad. So they decide to switch: Criss would stay at home, and Liz would pitch a new show to Kenneth. “John Hardly. He loves his family, but he hates the rat race. He’s: Hardly Working.” Kenneth turned her down, and instead gave her one last chance for TGS to make America say, ‘What? Why?'” A stipulation in Tracy’s contract required that he appear in at least 150 episodes of TGS, or the network would owe him $30 million. They’d only done 149, so Kenneth insisted that Liz come back and do one more show. READ FULL STORY

That is so fetch: Tina Fey wants Mariah Carey for 'Mean Girls' musical -- We cast other characters

Mean-Girls_510x317.jpg

While talking to E! Online on the red carpet at the SAG Awards, Tina Fey mentioned that she thought Mariah Carey could star in her Mean Girls musical. (She told EW of her plans to turn her hit film into a musical back in our September cover story.)

“Maybe she can play Amy Poehler’s part,” Fey joked, after discussing Mariah’s knowledge of the film.

Mariah Carey as Mrs. George? She certainly has the singing voice for the role. But who else would we cast in our perfect production of Mean Girls? READ FULL STORY

SAG Awards 2013 backstage: Jennifer Lawrence, Ben Affleck, Tina Fey, Daniel Day-Lewis and more

At the SAG Awards, the stars get a few precious minutes to make their acceptance speeches. But that’s not their last say of the night. Next, they’re off to the press room backstage at the Shrine Auditorium. Read on for what the winners told reporters once they stepped offstage at the show on Sunday night – including Ben Affleck on Argo’s win in the top film category, Jennifer Lawrence on what she would tell her 14-year-old self and Bryan Cranston on what he hopes makes it into his obituary.

'30 Rock': Willy Wonka and the NBC factory

30 Rock is going out with a bang. Or a least with a wonderful tribute to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. In an effort to find his successor, Jack reinstated Kenneth the page to give a special VIP tour to the five final candidates for the position. The contenders (conveniently named Charlie, Veruca, Mike, Augustus, and Violet) were led to believe the tour was just a formality, but it was really the last part of the interview. Enter “NBC’s TV version of Willy Wonka starring Bob Uecker.” READ FULL STORY

'30 Rock': Jack and Liz take Florida!

It’s the final countdown! In “Florida,” Jack was still riding the high of defeating Kaylie Hooper to claim his rightful spot as Kabletown CEO. But since the promotion wasn’t official just yet, he was tying up some loose ends. That included a trip to Florida to take care of his mother’s estate. He invited Liz to accompany him, and she agreed in an effort to be more spontaneous. But the mentor/mentee got quite a shock when they discovered that Colleen’s live-in nurse, Martha, was much more than a nurse. At first, Jack believed his mother had been scammed. But twist! Mrs. Silly Colleen had really taken a female lover, and just failed to tell Jack.  READ FULL STORY

GG-SHOW-FEY-POEHLER

Ricky Gervais may be the one that got all the feigned gasps with his celebrity-ribbing monologues the past couple years, but gal pals and partners in prime-time Tina Fey and Amy Poehler had more than a little bite in their Golden Globes opening. Starting off with a guaranteed-to-be-accurate subject—making fun of the assembled celebrities’ inevitable intoxication, saying “You can smell the pills from here”—they then gave a sarcastic nod to their predecessor before moving on down the list of all the famous faces in the crowd just waiting for someone to cut to them. Here are some of the highlights and check back for their jokes throughout the night:

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: The BFF duo's 11 best onscreen moments

Can anything get in the way of Lincoln‘s momentum? Could Smash possibly upset the Best TV Show — Comedy or Musical category? Who cares! The real reason to watch the Golden Globes this Sunday is to see three glorious hours of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing what they do best: Hanging out together and making us laugh.

Ever since meeting in an improv class nearly 20 years ago — back when Tina “had only recently learned that you can pluck your eyebrows” and Amy got $15 dye jobs that made her hair “the color of white lined paper” — Pohler and Fey have enjoyed a best-friendship that’s the envy of non-Tinas and Amys everywhere. (2012’s Night of Too Many Stars even auctioned off the chance to be the pair’s third BFF for the night; the winner, predictably, had an amazing time.) Naturally, the pair frequently work together onscreen — proving that as funny as they are individually, Amy and Tina are better together.

So here’s a chronological list of their greatest clips — starting with one of SNL‘s best commercial parodies: READ FULL STORY

'30 Rock' cast reminisces on 'Jimmy Fallon' -- VIDEO

Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, and Jack McBrayer, all hanging out with Jimmy Fallon and telling behind-the-scenes stories about 30 Rock? And at some point, every one of them does a Tracy Morgan impression?

I want to go to there.

Last night, the principal cast of the celebrated NBC sitcom — 97 Emmy nominations, nerds! — visited Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, getting together for the first time since 30 Rock‘s wrap party in December. Their whole 26-minute appearance is worth watching, especially for the backstage tidbits. In the first part of the interview, for example, Jordan — er, Morgan — enthuses about that legendary wrap party, likening it to a Caligula-style orgy and saying that it gave him an opportunity to make out with every member of the show’s cast and crew. (Fallon: “Even with Alec?” Morgan: “Especially with Alec! I’m pregnant right now!”)
