Take the NBC Page-Off Challenge

jack mcbrayer

When we last left 30 ROCK two weeks ago, Jenna accidently burned Kenneth’s NBC Page jacket leading to an unexpected yet hilarious fight club style “Page-off” in the bowels of 30 Rockefellar Centre.
Yet before the fight/NBC Trivia contest could commence, uber-page Donne and newbie page Kenneth were interrupted by a very angry Pete. Which left this TV Addict disappointed. Not so much because I didn’t get to witness what would undoubtedly be one really funny fight. Rather I was excited to see how I’d fare in the NBC Trivia contest.

Which naturally led to thinking, why not run our very own NBC “Page-Off”?

Think you’ve got the smarts to outwit Kenneth? Have what it takes to wear the illustrious navy blue jacket? Click the link below to answer 10 not-so-simple NBC related questions, leaving your answer in the comments below.

    Oh, and one more thing…. No Google Cheating! If you were ever to find yourself in a genuine Page-Off… you totally wouldn’t be able to let your guard down to google NBC facts on your iPhone! [or would you?]
