Tina Fey And “30 Rock” Get Rich(er)

Yay! Everyone’s favorite Palin-impersonating, geeky-smart, bespectacled, funny gal is about to get a whole lot richer. Emmy winner Tina Fey’s hilarious show, “30 Rock,” whose commercial success has only recently started to catch up to its critical acclaim has been sold for syndication — where the real money is. Comedy Central and WGN outbid E! and TBS for rights to pay Universal Media Studios a combined $800,000 per episode, to air the show five nights a week beginning in a little over two years. For a show that’s been on the brink of cancellation, despite its many awards and critical acclaim, this is an astounding victory. If NBC is successful in securing buys from local stations as it’s trying to do, Tina Fey is pretty much guaranteed the comfiest of retirements when she decides to take one. We just hope that doesn’t happen for a LONG time. A new episode of the show, we’d be happy to see sooner rather than later, though. [via Variety via Vulture]
