• Listen to Tina Fey narrate NPR’s “The Hidden World of Girls”

    I’m on board with 99 percent of the things Tina Fey does– even films like Baby Mama. I love her work that much. Her newest project, though, deviates in a pretty big way from the silly comedy world of 30 Rock and Mean Girls. The writer and actress narrated two specials for NPR’s The Hidden World of Girls, which is all about how trailblazing women got to be so badass.

    Denise Richards will guest star on “30 Rock”

    NBC’s hit comedy 30 Rock is known not only for ushering in some of the most original scripts in primetime history — thank you, Tina Fey! — but also for having lots of fun with its guest stars. And although we’re totally hankering for some Liz Lemon about now (remember, the season was pushed to midseason because of Fey’s second pregnancy), at least we’re starting to get some info about

    Tina Fey tops Forbes list of highest paid actresses, beats out Desperate Housewives

    In Hollywood, where marginally talented actors and actresses are constantly rewarded for upholding stereotypes and maintaining the status quo, it’s nice to see someone like Tina Fey — a trailblazer in the comedy game — is the one on top of heard. Forbes released their highest paid actresses list this morning and it turns out Fey, producer, head writer and star of 30 Rock, made $13 million last year, tying

    “30 Rock” will go on without Alec Baldwin, says Lorne Michaels; but, should it?

    Remember a while back when Alec Baldwin was all “Show’s over!” in regard to 30 Rock’s next season? He hasn’t commented on the series’ longevity in recent days, but executive producer and Saturday Night Live godfather Lorne Michaels has. And all I have to say is… uh oh. New York Magazine’s Vulture blog had a chat with Michaels and asked about the upcoming season for the show. If Baldwin bails,

    Mila Kunis on the cover of GQ’s Comedy Issue: a step forward or back for women in comedy?

    For their fourth annual Comedy Issue, mens’s interest mag GQ has chosen actress Mila Kunis as their cover woman. It’s newsworthy, I suppose, since she’s not a dude; the likes of Zach Galifianakis, Seth Rogen, Tracy Morgan and Paul Rudd have graced the comedy-themed issue in years past. And this move will no doubt re-ignite the never-ending debate about women’s role in comedy. Kunis, in my humble opinion is well

    Watch all three animated 30 Rock ‘Jack Donaghy: Executive Superhero’ episodes

    Back in April we posted the first of three animated 30 Rock shorts titled Jack Donaghy Executive Superhero. A second one came out and we never posted it. We’re not perfect, folks.

And then after the jump, be sure to check out the first

    Saturday Night Live recap: The return of Tina Fey

    COLD OPENING Osama Bin Laden’s video Will and Testament. Osama reveals his legacy is not as impressive as we were led to believe- totaling just over $700. Osama mentions Dakota Fanning several times- more specifically, a virgin, 12-year-old Dakota Fanning. The reference is kind of out there, although, to some, Dakota Fanning at 12 was as creepy as Osama while alive. (more…)

    30 Rock recap: “Respawn” (season 5 finale)

    Sorry that we didn’t have a recap last week, you guys. I was actually in NYC and was too knee-deep in booze while on my vacation. Last week’s episode was great, though. It took us back to the classic dynamics of the characters and was a refreshing return for Tracy Jordan. After last week, I felt relaxed and warm and fuzzy (though it could have been the overpriced booze). Things

    Watch an hour-long Tina Fey interview

    I’m not going to pretend I watched more than a few seconds of the video I’ve embedded below. All I know is that it’s a really well produced video interview with Tina Fey, wherein she chats about her new book, Bossypants. And it was filmed at the Google cult compound (or something like that). Also, I know that comedy fans will basically watch or read anything about Tina Fey, because

    30 Rock recap: the hour-long 100th episode!

    Hey, guys, I apologize to the few of you who noticed that this recap is posting later than usual … I’m covering the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR and I had to DVR 30 Rock last night – it was like missing my fictional daughter’s ballet recital for my fictional son’s soccer game. PART ONE: So this was the 100th episode of both TGS and 30 Rock. We know

    30 Rock recap: “I Heart Connecticut”

    Dear God. Two weeks?! The gaps between these episodes are giving me some serious anxiety attacks, you guys! This week’s episode began with Liz and Kenneth’s desperate hunt for Tracy Jordan. TGS is circling the drain, and unless they can find their star – everyone’s jobs are kaput. For one of the first times in the show’s history, Liz seems totally uncertain about the future of the show. Jenna doesn’t
