Chirp, Chirp

Is this funny?

NYT: In the General Electric corporate family, NBC and Universal Pictures are like two glamorous cousins from the coasts: they make movies and television shows, while the other GE divisions make things like humidifiers, steam turbines and fluorescent lights. NBC even makes fun of this in its show '30 Rock," where a GE executive has the title "vice president of East Coast television and microwave oven programming."

You all keep telling me to "keep at it" and then I do and I still don't laugh and then you tell me, "well, that wasn't the best episode." Can someone just bring back "The Comeback" and be done with it!

I don't know what to say....I just can't believe you don't like 30 Rock. It's one of the best shows in a LONG time. It regularly makes me laugh, and occasionally makes me lose it all together. I'll suggest one episode in an attempt to turn you around...probably one of the funniest I've ever seen:

"What am I? Twelve and at my boyfriend's frat party?" ;)

I have to begin to question your taste in TV programming.
Did you see the one with Isabella Rosselini? ("Dammit Jack, you know how I love my Big Beef & Cheddar!!")
And the whole story arc involving Will Arnett, whose a closeted homosexual, only he doesn't do so good a job keeping it closeted is totally fucking hilarious.
This show was my replacement for Arrested Development (may it R.I.P.).
As a matter of fact, I just watched the last two episodes of this season, from the first week in May, which I had been saving on the TiVo, to try and get me through the summer.
I almost died from withdrawal symptoms during the writer's strike.
If you don't watch, you are definitely missing out.

Brad: Good call with those episodes. The best about the first Isabella Rosselini episode was Pee Wee as the retarded prince. :)

And Will Arnett....hilarious!
"You're going down Jack"

"No Devin......I don't do that."

Funniest show on TV!

I only wish they use Jane Krakowski more though. She was barely in any episodes last season.

It's the first network sitcom I've watched since Seinfeld went off. It's hilarious.
