Fall TV Preview: 30 Rock

Not getting enough of of a behind-the-scenes look at a variety show with Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip? That's OK because 30 Rock is premiering tonight! Like Studio 60 it also centers around a weekly comedy show and airs on NBC.

Tina Fey, formerly of SNL, both writes and stars in this workplace comedy. Her character, Liza Lemon, is the head writer of a comedy show called "The Girlie Show," not too unlike SNL (In fact, "30 Rock" is the address of NBC Studios in New York where both SNL and the fictitious Girlie Show are located). She's thrown for a loop when a new network head played by Alec Baldwin demands that she incorporate a mentally insane actor (Tracy Morgan) into her mostly all-girl cast. Hilarity ensues. Or so, they say; it's getting pretty good reviews.

And while Tina Fey thinks that 30 Rock is very different from Studio 60, she hasn't hid from the awkward fact that they are both on the same network. In one of the promos for 30 Rock she has Alec Baldwin's character thinking that he is actually working with Amanda Peet (who stars on Studio 60).

For some reason we were unable to see a screening of this show and they did supposedly do some serious retooling to the pilot but we still can't wait to see it. I loved Tina on Weekend Update and we all loved Mean Girls. Who knows, maybe this means we'll get lucky with a surprise guest appearance by LL!
