I've been catching up on my recorded Tivo programs this week and I've decided that 30 Rock is a good show, plus Tina Fey is a personal hero of mine, for saying things like this:
Howard Stern: What is Paris Hilton like?
Tina Fey: She's a piece of sh-t. The people at SNL were like maybe she'll be fun, maybe she won't take herself so seriously. She takes herself so seriously! She's unbelievably dumb and so proud of how dumb she is. She looks like a tranny up close.
Howard Stern: Was she bad on SNL, was she hard to deal with?
Tina Fey: She was awful. People never come in and say "I'm not doing that." So, this guy Jim Downey wrote a really really funny sketch, it was supposed to be Lorne Michaels just finding out that she had a sex tape and telling her she couldn't host the show because SNL has standards... So she was like "I'm not doing it!" and refused to come out of her dressing room. Also, you would walk down the hall and find what just looked like nasty wads of Barbie hair on the stairs... Her hair is like a Fraggle.
Howard Stern: Did she give you ideas for sketches?
Tina Fey: Yeah, she wanted to make fun of all the girls she hates. She was like "I want to play Jessica Simpson, I hate her." She would come in the room and say "you should do a show about Jessica Simpson because she's fat."
Howard Stern: What was the bet you guys had going about her?
Tina Fey: The cast had a bet if she would ask anyone on the cast anything about themselves, you know like how are you? where are you from? anything. I think Seth Meyers won because at one point, she asked him if Maya Rudolf was Italian.
I know I should probably have better things to do than to care about what Tina Fey said about Paris Hilton, but nope, I don't.

30 Rock is the funniest thing on TV - Ditto Tina Fey. I love Alex Baldwin and he is a riot on the show. I've never been a Tracy Morgan fan till this show. He is hysterical. "Do you have apple juice?" "No? then I'll have a vodka tonic." I LOVE IT!

I love Tina Fey, I really do. And the show is definitely getting funnier every week. However, the product placement, the tongue-in-cheek, "I'm just kidding...but not really" jokes about promoting brands, and the way the fancy new GE oven actually got worked into the show as a plot element in the pilot...well, that all makes me a little uncomfortable.

Yeah, I watched this show for the first time last week, with pretty low expectations. Frankly, I don't generally like sitcoms. I usually feel dumber after watching them. And if they have canned laughter, then forget it. I don't need to be told when to laugh.
BUT, I was pleasantly surprised with 30 Rock, and thought it was really funny and well done.
Hands down favorite, though: The Office.

I'm not surprised Paris Hilton is as Tina describes her. She's lived a privileged life due to her parents wealth & probably even paid people to do her homework for her. I saw a clip of Paris trying to dance at some club in Vegas & poor thing, she can't even dance.
Tina Fey is great!

Dan, I'll watch "30 Rock," based on your recommendation. Also, I found out that Tina Fey is a local-girl-made-good.
Lola, I like "The Office" too, but they have blatant product placement, also. They showed Kevin loving the shredder from Staples, followed up by a Staples commercial featuring said shredder.

Tina Fey OWNS. She was my hero in high school - according to what she said about herself in high school she was a lot like I was. I'd been looking forward to 30 Rock for a while now - especially since it premiered on my birthday.
