I've thought 30 Rock should've ended last year as ratings were falling and you never really heard people talk about it anymore. But I feel NBC doesn't want to upset Tina Fey, hoping she will create a new show for them once 30 Rock does come to an end. I don't watch 30 Rock. I've seen enough of it to know that I would probably like it but I am not a huge fan of Tracy Morgan (blasphemous!) or Jack McBrayer. I've seen the pilot and seen some episodes sporadically over the last five years or so. I made it a point to watch the episode with the Night Court cast and Jennifer Aniston but I haven't watched an episode since. Rumor has it that 30 Rock will end next season after its last 13 episodes but if the ratings go up and if Tina and Alec want to continue the show, I am sure NBC will jump at the chance despite what they have already said.
The Office had a lot to work out this season. Losing Steve Carell was going to put a dent in their ratings and their popularity but I felt that they did a good job. At first. I loved seeing Ed Helms get promoted to regional manager, I enjoyed the storyline with Angela's gay senator husband and I loved seeing the employees down in Florida. What I didn't like was Robert California (James Spader) and Nellie Bertram (Catherine Tate). Robert, who introduced himself as someone who gets what he wants and a "take-charge" kind of guy turned out to be an impotent imposter incapable of making even the simplest of decisions choosing instead to lock himself up in the conference room and act like he was talking to the cameras. My fondness for Robert ended with a thud when Nellie showed up--after being fired in Florida and usurped Andy's (Helms) position as regional manager while he was trying to win back Erin (Ellie Kemper). Robert refused to make the decision to fire Nellie (again) and put Andy back in charge causing Andy to essentially be fired. Everything got wrapped up neatly though in the season finale which is always a good thing.
|If how Catherine Tate played Nellie is her comedy shtick then no|
wonder I had never heard of her before.
And now, a special comment on Community....
|Quite possibly the sexiest cast on TV in my opinion. Just add Chevy to this picture|
and ignore the four guys who aren't part of the cast.
|Possibly my most favorite episode of this season.|
