Kathleen and I both loved the “live show” episode of “30 Rock” Thursday evening. There were two versions, one for most of the nation and one for the Pacific time zone. The latter was somewhat different with a different singer, some different jokes, etc.
And, if you are not familiar with “30 Rock,” here is a brief synopsis: Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) is the producer and head writer of a live comedy skit show called, “The Girly Show” (TGS) which is similar to “Saturday Night Live” (SNL). Liz is constantly frustrated by her love life, the big egos of the TGS stars, principally Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) and Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski), and the demands of NBC in the form of her boss Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin).
Having spent 25 years in television, the show wittily skewers the silliness of show business. There are several places to watch regular episodes online. It is on NBC on Thursday evenings. In the Central time zone, it airs at 7:30pm.
