Dealing with life in a studio at NBC's 30 Rockefeller Plaza (the title is a shortening of that), the show centers around Liz Lemon, played by Saturday Night Live's Tina Fey, who's the head writer of The Girlie Show. When her old boss dies and a new boss comes in (Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy), demanding the addition of a volatile former movie star (and re-branding the show TGS with Tracy Jordan in the process), Liz must figure out how to keep things running smoothly without losing her mind.
Jane Krakowski plays Liz's friend Jenna Maroney, the former headlining star who's all too aware her time to rely on her look is running out.
Tracy Morgan plays Tracy Jordan, and out-of-control comedy star whose movie career vanished.
Scott Adsit plays producer (and Liz's confidant) Pete Hornberger.
Judah Freidlander is writer Frank Rossitano, a slovenly man who's into porn and comic books.
Jack McBrayer plays NBC page Kenneth Parcell, a naive Georgia man who seems to always let NYC get the best of him.… Expand

Oct 17, 2010The only complaint I had about the show's second season was that there was just not enough of it because of the writers' strike. "Sandwich Day" proved Tina Fey is a real actress, "Episode 210" showed how hilarious Jack McBrayer is as Kenneth the Page, and this was the season of Ludachristmas--a party my friends and I now throw every year.… Collapse
Feb 11, 2011The second season of "30 Rock" was, unfortunately, too short. It is, as impossible as it sounds, as good as the first one, if not even better. Every episode offered something new - refreshing stories, great acting and just silly situations that can make one happy. There were some more dramatic and 'real' stories, too, which were nice to follow and they gave more credibility to the show, especially with character development. Tina Fey was simply amazing in this season, and has definitely deserved all the praise she has been getting! Excellent season of one of the best shows in a long, long time!… Expand
May 26, 201330 Rock stars the fantastic Tina Fey as Liz Lemon, the head writer of a fictional live variety programme called The Girlie Show, as she tries to manage her out of control actors while still making time for some sort of personal life.
As with any sit-com 30 Rock takes a few episodes to really get going as we start to understand the personalities of the cast. Each of the characters have their moments but it is the central relationship between Liz Lemon and company executive Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) that really sets the show apart from other comedies. Baldwin’s straight faced delivery is priceless and his great on-screen chemistry with Fey makes for one of TVs all time great comedy double acts, season two episode MILF island possibly being the pinnacle.
Those that prefer the more straightforward sit-com may not get the show but for those that do it is comedy of the highest order.… Expand
