If Michael Scott awarded a Dundee for ‘Comedy Night Done Right,’ it would surely go to last night’s 30 ROCK. Between the funniest David Schwimmer appearance since his days at Central Perk, Kenneth dressing down the TGS staff for their slightly inappropriate party behavior [“Harlem Globetrotter — does that name mean nothing to you?”] and Jack’s take on the network market research “Look how Greenzo is testing… all the demographics love him … colored people, broads, fairies, Commies… Gosh, we gotta update these forms.” 30 ROCK was on fire. Which makes it even harder to come to grips with the fact that come December we’ll be 30 ROCK free for quite a while.
Which bring up this point — TV Addict Strike Survival Tip #1. Is anyone else finding that lately they’re in no rush to watch television? Traditionally on Thursdays, I stay up into the wee hours of the night in a desperate attempt to watch all of my favorites. But last night, figuring I’ve got nothing to look forward to but a long cold winter of repeats and reality — I thought to myself, what’s the rush? Why not take a page from the bear that hibernates and stock up.
Oh who am I kidding? I’m a TV Addict with zero self control [see: my ridiculous collection of TV on DVD]. Post away with your thoughts on last night’s television so I know what to watch first! My predictions on what you guys will say.
SUPERNATURAL = Awesome.
THE OFFICE = Too much Michael.
GREY’S ANATOMY = Uneven.
UGLY BETTY = Hilarious.
And finally, a quick pet peeve. Why does NBC bother putting an ‘HD’ beside SCRUBS in my PVR’s channel guide. SCRUBS isn’t filmed in HD and never will be. Yet every Thursday I get my hopes up. So stop messing with us.
