Video of Jon Hamm on 30 Rock and Idris Elba on The Office

TV Tonight: Great Guest Stars on NBC

Having a new episode of The Office plus a new 30 Rock is enough to make me happy most Thursdays, but tonight's episodes have some special appeal. On 30 Rock, Jon Hamm is back as Liz's neighbor and incredibly understanding date, Drew, while on The Office, Idris Elba starts his six-episode run as a new boss at Dunder Mifflin going toe-to-toe with Michael Scott.

I'm excited to see a comedic side to Elba, who's best known as Stringer Bell on The Wire. His character, Charles Minor, sounds like he's going to be a tough rival for Michael, at least based on this radio interview with Elba from earlier this month. It sounds like he's been having a blast with all the improvising on set, and frankly, I think The Office could use a little shake-up as the season draws to a close.

Meanwhile, what have Drew and Liz Lemon been up to since last we saw them? Apparently something that involves tennis and possibly a motorcycle, as seen in the promo below. Which guest star are you most psyched to see? To watch the video, just

So looking forward to both of these appearances. Oh, how I miss The Wire. The Terry Gross interview with Idris Elba is well worth the listen.
