The Best Show I'M Not Watching
No, not The Wire (well, ok. maybe it's The Wire). But as far as NBC sitcoms go, 30 Rock is the runaway winner.
Tracy Morgan? Alec Baldwin? Tina Fey? Did I mention Tracy Morgan? Need I say more? So it's completely unexplainable why I'm haven't been tuning in. Especially after watching this. [cracked.com].
NBC was in programming purgatory just a few years ago after losing caucasion powerhouses Frasier, Friends, Seinfeld, Will and Grace, as well as the NBA. Who knew when they took a flyer on The Office, My Name is Earl, 30 Rock, and continuing to renew Scrubs despite the ratings, that NBC would be the funniest channel on television? (Plus they got the NFL back, premiered Heroes and Friday Night Lights.) Only if they had gotten Arrested Development when it left Fox...
I sincerely hope they get their hands on the hilarious Everybody Hates Chris (yes I'm starting rumors) and saves it from the CW.
