Far be it for any of us to assume that social media is the be-all end-all of decision-making and impassioned actions, but it looks like NBC might have another one of their favored sitcoms in hot water after Alec Baldwin seems to have been pushed to the point of no return by his latest scandals.

'30 Rock' Review: "Nothing Left To Lose"

This week's '30 Rock' seemed to be tightly reigned in, and devoid of most of the traditional shenaniganry (and we're not exactly sure that's a word, but it certainly applies to '30 Rock'). Jenna's antic's were toned down, Tracy was well-behaved, and I think the only "wacky" moment in the whole show came from a boxing dummy.
This isn't to say that the show wasn't funny - it's just after nearly a whole season of craziness, a "bottle episode" (no guest stars, limited sets and effects, etc.) comes as a bit of a surprise.
In this case, show's standard three mini-plot formula proved useful, keeping the focus from staying too long in one place helped to keep things from getting dull.

This week's '30 Rock' episode: "Standards and Practices" kicked off with some easy-pitch meta shenanigans, but still rushed forward with frantic energy that was hard to connect with. Before the title sequence, we're given nearly a half-episode's worth of exposition, covering Kaylie Hooper's (guest star Chloe Moretz) status as Jack's nemesis, the big show, and another Jenna bid for the public's attention.
