I’ve always had a little crush on Tina Fey. Her years as head writer and Weekend Update co-host on Saturday Night Live almost single-handedly kept the show viable. Since her departure to star in 30 Rock, the show has faltered creatively. In fact, if not for the zeitgeisty SNL Digital Shorts, I wonder if anyone would have talked about the show the last few years.
So, it’s been nice to see so much of America starting to catch on to just how funny Tina Fey is. Her return to Saturday Night Live to portray Sarah Palin has a lot of people talking, and not just the usual, “Who the hell is Tina Fey and why does she keep winning awards for this show I’ve never watched?”
Hopefully, this will translate into new viewers for 30 Rock. Why should you be watching 30 Rock? Try stuff like this:
And Alec Baldwin!!!
30 Rock’s 3rd season premiere is on October 30th.
