Visitors to 30 Rockefeller Plaza, who thought they were on an NBC Studio Tour, got a big surprise when the elevator stopped on the wrong floor. Both Jimmy Fallon and Michelle Obama were waiting for the doors to open to play comedic bits on the unsuspecting tourists. Hot-cha! Read the rest
Something we'll never get to look forward to again: a new season of 30 Rock. One of TV's most excellent shows had its last day of shooting yesterday, culminating in what must have been a seriously weepy wrap party. Cast member Kevin "Dot Com" Brown took and shared pictures on Twitter, because he knows how much we wanted to be a part of this glorious farewell.
The series finale (sob) of 30 Rock will air Thursday, January 31 on NBC. And just in time for your to restock your tissue supply, Community will come back! It's the most bittersweet two weeks in sitcom history!
Here is the full cast and crew of 30 Rock, gathering for a group photo. Perhaps the last group photo. Sniff...
Thanks for sharing these, Dot Com! Will we ever have another TV show with a character named Dot Com? Probably not. And if we do, it just won't be the same.

Guys, it's really going to be ending soon. Alec Baldwin sent this profoundly monumental message (at least for 30 Rock fans) this afternoon, reminding everyone that there is, indeed, a limited amount of episodes of NBC's 30 Rock left. But before we mourn, tonight is the episode in which Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) gets married to Criss Chross (James Marsden). Visit Flavorwire if you will be throwing a cocktail party, because they have some fancy mixed drinks just for the occasion! (via Alec Baldwin on Twitter, Flavorwire) Read the rest
Man, Bryan Cranston is popping up everywhere these days! First, he was seen directing an episode of NBC's The Office for its final season. And now, he'll appear on camera for another show entering its last year, 30 Rock. He will be accompanied by the spectacular Catherine O'Hara, who will play the mother of Kenneth the NBC page (Jack McBrayer), but it's Cranston's role that might be filling in the blanks on some legendary 30 Rock lore: he's playing Ron, the boyfriend of Kenneth's mother, who has never been seen on-screen before. (Neither has Kenneth's mother, for that matter.) I think the bigger question is why, after all that critical acclaim for his work on AMC's Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston is all about working for the struggling peacock network. (Probably because he's freaking Heisenberg and does what he wants.) (via AV Club) Read the rest
