Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as not only “the best comedy on TV this year” but “simply the best TV,” the Emmy Award-winning comedy “30 Rock” is told through the comedic voice of Golden Globe winner Tina Fey (“Liz Lemon”) and features Golden Globe winner 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 constantly has her hands full, juggling corporate interference from Donaghy and off-the-handle star antics from Jordan, all while attempting to salvage her own personal life.
Also rounding out the cast are Jane Krakowski (“Jenna Maroney”) as the co-star of “TGS”; Scott Adsit (“Pete Hornberger”) as the variety show’s producer; Jack McBrayer (“Kenneth the Page”) as the over-eager and effortlessly endearing NBC page; Judah Friedlander (“Frank”) as the sardonic slacker on the writing staff; Katrina Bowden (“Cerie”) as Lemon’s young, flighty assistant; and Keith Powell (“Toofer”) as the sophisticated, yet sarcastic Harvard-alum writer.
Throughout the seasons, “30 Rock” has welcomed an impressive array of guest stars, including Elaine Stritch, who garnered a 2007 Emmy Award and a 2008 Emmy nomination for her performance, as well as 2008 Emmy nominees Will Arnett, Steve Buscemi, Tim Conway, Edie Falco, Carrie Fisher and Rip Torn. Other guest stars have included Jerry Seinfeld, former Vice President Al Gore, David Schwimmer, Andy Richter, Dean Winters, Gladys Knight, Meredith Vieira, Paul Reubens, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, John McEnroe, Maury Povich, Ghostface Killah, LL Cool J, Sean Hayes, Nathan Lane, Molly Shannon, Chris Parnell, Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis.
Nominated for a record 17 Emmy nominations in 2008, “30 Rock” has been honored on a myriad of critics’ year-end Best of 2006 and 2007 lists. The show has received a 2007 Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series, the Producers Guild Awards’ Danny Thomas Producer of the Year Award in Comedy Episodic Television, a Writers Guild Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series and a Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy. Also recognized by the AFI Awards as one of 10 Most Outstanding TV Programs of the Year, “30 Rock” was honored with nominations by the People’s Choice Awards for Favorite New Comedy Series. Both Fey and Baldwin received the Golden Globe, SAG and TCA Awards for their portrayals of Lemon and Donaghy respectively.
SNL’s Weekend Update was left in a dill of a pickle this past weekend when Amy Poehler was a no-show… but at least her excuse was valid! Turns out Poehler (alongside hubby Will Arnett) was a bit tied up giving birth to her new son, Archie. That meant the show had to do some shuffling to accommodate the new mom’s absence and managed to hustle with a few last-minute rewrites to keep everything moving smoothly on live television.
‘Gossip Girl ‘ (8PM, The CW)
Poor Dan Humphrey … guess he hasn’t read the ‘Gossip Girl’ books, because if he had, he’d know that the new rich kid on the block is one Aaron Rose, destined to be the next boy toy on the arm of one Serena van der Woodsen. Of course, in the books, Dan is also bisexual, so the TV series will probably never be 100 percent faithful to the book series, but it is true that Aaron (‘Stick It’ star John Patrick Amedori) is Serena’s new Dan. Meanwhile, Humphrey kid Jenny makes a new friend in the rebellious Agnes, who convinces Little J that she needs to make a bold move with her fashion career, lest Blair’s mom squash it before it even begins.
[Yes I Like This Show.]
‘Heroes’ (9PM, NBC)
Good guy gone bad (Suresh), baddie (Sylar) with a chance to do good and save his bro (Peter) and a major catfight throwdown (Claire and the returning Elle) … there’s a little something for everyone. Trapped and terrified, Nathan and Tracy (Adrian Pasdar, Ali Larter) fight for their lives against a much-changed, monstrous Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) to free themselves and the doctor’s other test subjects. Elle (guest star Kristin Bell) returns with a surprise for Claire (Hayden Panettiere) and her family, and Angela (Cristine Rose) tries to persuade Sylar (Zachary Quinto) to save Peter (Milo Ventimiglia).
[Im So OVER This Show.]
‘One Tree Hill’ (9PM, The CW)
Lucas’ cheesy prose not only makes his second novel a hit, but a big Hollywood so-and-so wants to option it for a movie. Only on The CW, kids, only on The CW.
‘My Own Worst Enemy’ 10PM, NBC
Edward treks off to Mexico to get info on Russian weaponry, but gets double-crossed. So what happens when a guy with dual personalities is double-crossed? We dunno, but it sounds like math might be involved.
[And we generally try to avoid math of any sort.]
‘Boston Legal’ 10PM, ABC
Murderous Catherine Piper (Betty White) returns to get help from Crane, Poole & Schmidt because, this time, she blew up her doctor. In her defense, she only meant to burn his office down; exploding him was a miscalculation. Elsewhere, Alan and Denny hit a dude ranch.
Chuck 8:00 PM, NBC
A life in espionage starts to take its toll on Chuck (Zachary Levi) who’s forced to try and explain his unusual behavior to Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) and the Buy More efficiency expert (guest star Tony Hale), but a new assignment only complicates things. Then, a global terrorist comes looking for Jeff (Scott Krinsky), and Chuck has to socialize with him in order to find out what role he plays in the mission.
[I love Chuck.]
The Big Bang Theory 8:00 PM, CBS
He got the brains; she got the looks. Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) twin sister, Missy (guest star Courtney Henggeler), is in town, and it’s lust at first sight for Leonard, Howard and Raj (Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar). Sheldon puts an end to their competition for her attention by telling them he’ll decide whom she dates. A confidence drug helps Raj talk to Missy and Penny (Kaley Cuoco) but wears off at the worst possible time.
NFL Football 8:30 PM, ESPN
Look who’s in first place in the AFC South. For once, it’s Peyton Manning looking up at a rival, in this case Kerry Collins and the Tennessee Titans, who could enter tonight’s game in Nashville against the Colts a perfect 6-0. Last year these two teams split their season series, and it was Collins, in relief of an injured Vince Young, who engineered a second-half comeback versus Indy in Week 17 to get Tennessee into the playoffs.
[No Thank You.]
Primal Fear 9:00 PM, HIST
This two-hour documentary looks into what drives our fears and how they strike terror in an individual. Each fear — drowning; vermin; being buried, eaten or burned alive; the unknown — will be explored by looking at its history, the science behind it and a contemporary experience. Call us crazy, but don’t all of those things seem worthy of fear? You know what’s really scary? People who don’t find that stuff scary.
[Too scared to watch that.]
My Own Worst Enemy 10:00 PM, NBC
Edward (Christian Slater) is ordered to Mexico to get schematics for Russia’s next-generation nuclear bomb and finds himself double-crossed. Henry (Slater) agrees to meet with an inquiring FBI agent after discovering Edward inadvertently put his daughter Ruthy (Bella Thorne) in danger. Tom’s (Mike O’Malley) wife, Mary Grady (Missy Yager), becomes suspicious of his many business trips and hires a private investigator.
[Too bad its up against Boston Legal]
CSI: Miami 10:00 PM, CBS
Too bad Emmy has ignored this series — at least where the acting is concerned — because Emily Procter deserves a shot at a statue. That’s evident in this episode, in which her character, Calleigh Duquesne, is almost hit by a car. She shoots at the vehicle, and it crashes into a store, where a woman is found dead. From Calleigh’s guilt at possibly having caused the death to her relief at learning the truth — the woman was murdered — Procter’s acting is spot-on.
[I only like CSI-VEGAS]
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 23 AT 9 PM EST/ 10 PM
At the time of his death in 2003, no other entertainer in history had brought together people of such diverse creeds, politics, and persuasions as Johnny Cash. With hits spanning six decades from the 1950s into the 21st century, Cash sought to advocate his beliefs and unify people through his music. Wading in the controversies of his time, Cash was a man who believed in God but was a friend to the Devil, a patriot and a drug addict, a friend to Presidents and an ally to prisoners. His America was not red, white or blue; it was black.
A first time partnership between the Cash Estate, Sony Music, Executive Producer John Carter Cash and Award-winning filmmaking team Morgan Neville (Hank Williams: Honky Tonk Blues) and Robert Gordon (Muddy Waters Can’t Be Satisfied, with Morgan Neville), the special sheds new light on the life and legacy of the “Man in Black.” Narrated by Oscar-winning actor Chris Cooper (Adaptation), viewers will have unprecedented access to a wealth of rare materials, including never-before-seen footage and photos, intimate interviews with Cash’s family, children, and several life-long friends, and 27 of Johnny Cash’s recordings, many used here for the first time.
The documentary explores the prominent themes of Cash’s life including love of the land, freedom, justice, family, faith and redemption through exclusive interviews, photos and unreleased music and footage. Interviews include Cash’s sister Joanne, son John Carter Cash and daughters Cindy Cash and Rosanne Cash, childhood friends and fellow band mates as well as Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp, Sheryl Crow, Al Gore, Tim Robbins, Loretta Lynn, Snoop Dogg, Vince Gill, Ozzy Ozborne, Steve Earle, Merle Haggard and Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn) all of whom are connected to Cash in surprising ways.
The special features 27 of Cash’s songs as well as unreleased and never-before seen footage including the 1965 “Johnny Cash Show” featuring solo performance of “Five Feet High and Rising,” outtakes from the recording studio with Cash and Bob Dylan from his elusive Eat the Document documentary and rehearsal footage for a Highwaymen recording session. The Cash family – Johnny’s sister, son, and other relatives – take viewers to rural Dyess, Arkansas to Cash’s childhood home and visit brother Jack’s grave which elicits a moving, impromptu singing of “Will The Circle Be Unbroken.”
**Watch THIS** great clip from the documentary of never-before-seen footage of the first episode of “The Johnny Cash Show”
