A general feeling of "blerg" permeates the air today, as '30 Rock' gets set for the beginning of the end in premiering its season 7 opener, appropriately titled "The Beginning of the End." And while the final 13-episode season (with a super-sized finale) has been set in stone by the bigwigs at NBC, our fun with Liz Lemon, Jack Donaghy, Tracy, Jenna and Kenneth almost didn't end with a seventh season. Alec Baldwin reportedly tried to extend the show's run for additional episodes, possibly even an additional season, but how far did he take it?
We're starting to get very verklempt these days, as while our favorite TV series return left and right, for some their return marks "The Beginning of the End." Tonight will mark the debut of the final 13 episodes of 'Fringe' in "Transilience Thought Unifier Model-11" whereas next week begins the final 13 episodes of '30 Rock,' beginning quite literally with "The Beginning of the End!" The latest clip has some very frank talk between Jack and Liz, but where's the rest of the gang?
As '30 Rock' prepares to enter its final season next week on Thursday, October 4, the spotlight turns to a number of recurring characters and celebrity guest stars likely to pop up over the course of the show's 13-episode swan song. Yesterday, we heard from Tina Fey herself that Matthew Broderick would reprise his role as "Cooter," a role not seen since the show's second season, but what other guest stars does Fey believe will make an appearance in '30 Rock' season 7?
While '30 Rock' gears up for its final 13 episodes on NBC, don't make the mistake of believing that a half-season means any less room for both new, and familiar faces to drop and send the acclaimed NBC meta-comedy off! One of its many celebrity guest stars over the years, Matthew Broderick's downtrodden government employee Cooter Burger hasn't been seen since the show's second season, but will make a return at last! What new position might we see Mattthew Broderick in, and what does it mean for Jack?
As we've mentioned before, this week might host the premiere of a number of our favorite series, but we're still over a week away from the final season debut of long-running NBC gem '30 Rock.' Sure, Tina Fey might have secured her future in TV, but that doesn't mean we're not dying to find out how the final season of Liz Lemon's life journey plays out! The latest photos from October 4's season 7 premiere, "The Beginning of the End," certainly have our interest piqued. After all, whose baby could that be?
'30 Rock' might be coming to an imminent end with its seventh and final season this fall, but don't expect series star and 'SNL' alum Tina Fey to lose her grip on the tube any time soon. As her flagship show comes to a close, the star has inked a new lucrative development deal with Universal Television, but the question remains. Will Fey herself star in a new project, independent of '30 Rock,' or perhaps stay behind the scenes?
Kids, it just goes to show you. There's no need to bother with all that pesky education and general preparedness, when all you have to do to achieve international recognition and TV fame is to win a couple of measly gold medals. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is the latest to meet such standards, making a splash in the final season of '30 Rock,' but who will the notorious athlete portray?
Look out, Studio 6H. The one who knocks is on his way, and he's got a whole new kind of rock to push. '30 Rock' continues gearing up for its seventh and final season as speculation runs rampant how the long-running NBC comedy will close its doors, but at least one full measure is now in place. 'Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston and frequent Christopher Guest collaborator Catherine O'Hara will join '30 Rock' season 7 in an important role for Kenneth Parcell, but who might they be to the Stone Mountain page?
One of the running currents across six seasons of '30 Rock' lies not always in Liz Lemon's desire for a man to settle down with and tolerate all of her hideous habits, but rather a baby to take care of regardless of relationship status. With the critically-acclaimed series set to end after only 13 more episodes, will Lemon finally get her wish? She's got her man, but what do the latest set photos from '30 Rock' season 7 have people saying?
Sure, all birds have to leave the nest eventually, but no one said they couldn't ever come back! So while '30 Rock' heads into its finally 13 episodes before shutting down the TGS studios for good, a number of familiar faces are bound to pop up in the seventh, and final season. Maulik Pancholy in particular will be back as the ever-deferent Jonathan, but what does his return say about his controversial 'Whitney' character?
