"30 Rock" -- billed by Entertainment Weekly as "...clever but not too cool, daffy but not slapstick, NBC's '30 Rock'...the funniest sitcom on TV" -- is told through the comedic voice of Tina Fey (Liz Lemon) and features Alec Baldwin (Jack Donaghy) as a top network executive and Tracy Morgan (Tracy Jordan) as the unpredictable star of Lemon's hit variety show, "TGS with Tracy Jordan." Lemon had her hands full this past season, juggling corporate interference from Donaghy and off-the-wall star antics from Jordan, all while attempting to salvage her own personal life.
We haven't heard anything definitively on the status of NBC's comedy series 30 Rock, although most believe it will return for Season 7.
There was previously speculation that the actor, who plays NBC executive Jack Donaghy on the series, would leave after this season. We probably won't know anything definitive on the status of this series until May, when NBC will unveil its fall 2012-2013 lineup at the network's upfront presentation.Read More
