What did you think of 30 Rock's Live Episode?

30 Rock's Live Episode — Love It or Leave It?

This week 30 Rock showed us a brand-new side of the show with a live episode. For the first time we actually got to bear witness to a TGS skit, and the episode came complete with guest stars (Jon Hamm! Matt Damon! Julia Louis-Dreyfus!) and a live audience laugh track.

The show was aired from the Saturday Night Live studio, so the sets weren't the same, and of course, the episode had an entirely different feel. I watched both East and West Coast feeds and I couldn't stop smiling. Overall, I thought the cast did a great job (though Tracy Morgan seemed to do a bit of actual breaking in the West Coast episode), and I loved the celebrity cameos. How did you feel about the experiment?

Matt Damon is so pleasant to watch on screen. He is adorable as Carol. John Hamm's- "I'm tired" cracked me up.

I loved it! The alternative Liz Lemon was great! Also, I really appreciated them doing a live show for us west coast peeps. Bravo!

I loved it! Taping live really shows you how good the actors are (or aren't). I love Julia. She nailed Liz Lemon in the flashbacks!

I thought it was a great idea and it seemed like they were really enjoying themselves! Loved Julia Louis-Dreyfus as flashback Liz

I liked the feel of the episode and watching the cast work without a safety net. I thought Jon Hamm was the best thing about the show, though Matt Damon was a close second. I think it would add something special if a consistently good show like 30 Rock was live more often.

I enjoyed the live episode but I like the taped episodes better :) I guess I'm just used to them. But if I was watching it live - there in the SNL studio - oh that's a different story.
