'30 Rock': Liz Lemon gets married!

There’s hope for us all! Elizabeth Lemon and Criss Chros finally tied the knot. If you didn’t even know they were engaged, don’t worry. The whole thing—engagement to “I Do’s”—happened in the course of “Mazel Tov, Dummies!” Here’s how it all went down: Liz and Criss ran into mayhem Dennis Duffy and discovered that he was married. (Who would marry Dennis? Megan, maiden name Duffy—hopefully no relation. That’s who.) Dennis also happened to have an adopted son named Black Dennis. And that was just too much for Liz to take.

'30 Rock': Aunt Phatso vs. Jack Donaghy

Woah! Before we get into tonight’s episode, let’s talk about that invitation to Liz Lemon’s wedding in two weeks! Yup, it looks like Elizabeth Miervaldis Lemon will wed Criss later this month. Discuss! But Lemon had more important things to worry about in “Aunt Phatso vs. Jack Donaghy.” See: her aching bunions. (Actually, don’t see it. It’s probably gross.) Her podiatrist said the only possibly explanation was that one of her ancestors mated with a dinosaur. Naturally. Anyway, Lemon needed quadruple bunion surgery, a procedure that would require her to stay off her feet for three weeks. Liz knew she couldn’t accomplish that working with the less-than-helpful TGS staffers.

'Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together' telethon was a classy and inspiring hour

Whether or not you found NBC’s Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together benefit telethon as “enormously entertaining” as host Matt Lauer promised it would be, it was a celebrity-packed hour of television that effectively reminded everyone of how devastating the damage has been while calling for action. A lot more people now know to text REDCROSS to 90999 or go to iTunes.com/redcross to donate money to disaster relief — plus we got to see Jimmy Fallon rock out with music legends. “Jimmy Fallon is a bold man to take the lead vocals from Steven Tyler, Bruce Springsteen, and Billy Joel,” Jon Stewart said of the all-star performance of “Under the Boardwalk,” which brought a little levity to the show.

'30 Rock': The best lines from 'There's No I In America'

Hurricane Sandy rocked the East Coast and NBC’s prime-time lineup, giving us an all-new episode of 30 Rock on a Wednesday night instead of Thursday. The sheer madness! So in lieu of my usual 30 Rock recap, let’s get right down to business with the top 10 lines from “There’s No I In America.”

'30 Rock': Unwindulax because Jenna's picking the next president!

The final season of 30 Rock is certainly taking advantage of the presidential election. I mean, if it weren’t for the current political landscape, we would live in a world without Baseball Mitt Romney and Barack Ollama! With the election just around the corner, Jack was doing all he could to raise money for his Republican Super PAC, Americans for an American America. Since his lady friend was unable to attend his fundraiser, Jack convinced Lemon to go with him as his chum. But let’s be honest, he didn’t have to do much convincing once she learned there would be shrimp there.

'30 Rock': Stride of Pride

Liz Lemon has got her boyfriend, Criss, to thank for her recent sexual awakening. It’s like we’re witnessing a whole new Lemon: one who likes talking about her bathing suit area and making dirty puns over Sex and the City brunches. I’d never thought I’d live to see the day!

Women have the last laugh! About time TWO gals such as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler host the Globes

Back in 2007, late great Vanity Fair writer Christopher Hitchens irked oodles of women, and men, in a meandering article, asking, “Why are women, who have the whole male world at their mercy, not funny?” A slew of others have followed suit over the years. Former Man Show host Adam Carolla sniped to the New York Post in June, “The reason why you know more funny dudes than funny chicks is that dudes are funnier than chicks.”

Tell that to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the newly minted co-hosts of next year’s Golden Globe Awards.

NBC, Dick Clark Productions and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association named the Saturday Night Live alums on Monday as hostesses of the 70th annual awards ceremony, set to air live Jan. 13, 2013 in Beverly Hills.

While Ricky Gervais spread his feisty, punchy, spitfire brand of Brit humor for the past three years as a popular, yet feared, host of the boozy show, next year’s telecast marks the very first time a duo of gals will host the Globes, the HFPA confirmed to EW. There have been previous female co-hosts such as Raquel Welch, in 1985, who co-hosted with Michael York, and Joan Collins and Wayne Rogers in 1983, but no solo female hosts either.

So why should this, two women hosting, and specifically Fey and Poehler, be celebrated, cheered, yelled from rooftops, if one’s energetic enough? READ FULL STORY

'30 Rock': Tracy's doppelganger joins the 2012 election

30-rock-react.jpg

Oh, I just love when art imitates life. Especially when 30 Rock is the one doing the imitating. In “Governor Dunston,” 30 Rock took on the current political landscape a mere hour before the live vice presidential debate. In the fictionalized version of America, Mitt Romney lost his running mate, Paul Ryan, and replaced him with Governor Bob Dunston—the spitting image of TGS star Tracy Jordan.

'30 Rock': Jack and Liz 'tank' the season 7 premiere

30-Rock-7.jpg

Well, it’s the beginning of the end. Will Liz Lemon end up having it all? Only time will tell in this truncated final season of 30 Rock. But let’s try not to shed any tears. We’ll just enjoy the time we have left with Lemon & Co.

In the season 7 premiere, we learned Liz and Criss are officially “trying.” Jack’s divorce to Avery is official, and thanks to his friends in high places, that wedding technically never even happened! Kenneth and Hazel are roommates, and possibly in a relationship depending on which one of them you ask. Liddy won a bronze medal in Horse-y Jump-y at the baby Olympics. Jenna was busy planning her surprise, secret wedding to Paul. And Jonathan learned that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side (ahem, Whitney) and returned as Jack’s assistant.
