TV Tonight: "30 Rock"

TV Tonight: "30 Rock"

"30 Rock," one of the big surprises of last year's TV season and this year's Emmy awards, returns to TV tonight. The Outstanding Comedy Series winner is hoping to make a splash with its first show since taking home the Emmy, dialing up a guest star with the power to bring in lots of new viewers: Jerry Seinfeld.

I got a chance to see tonight's episode early, and I'm happy to report the show's still got it. It's not the funniest episode of the series so far, but it has some stellar moments — including the setup for Seinfeld's appearance, which centers on a revolutionary tactic Jack has developed to insert Seinfeld into all of the network's programming. As always, one of the best parts of "30 Rock" is the humor it pokes at its own industry, and Jack's listing of his summer reality shows — "MILF Island," "Are You Stronger Than a Dog?" — hits hilariously close to home.

If you haven't seen "30 Rock" before and are curious now that it's got an Emmy, this episode wouldn't be a bad introduction. It's not perfect, but it's a great warm-up episode to ease us back into the show's screwball sensibility. To watch a preview, just
