When we first heard Ryan Lochte would be making a cameo on “30 Rock,” we were a bit worried. Ryan is really good — the best! — at swimming and having abs you could eat off of. Acting seemed like a bit of a stretch for him. But then we found out his “30 Rock” role would be to play a “sex idiot,” and it was like, hello, this is perfect for him. Nice work, Tina! JEAH! (Watch him this Thursday, okay?) [YouTube]
Last night I was just about crying into my Cheesy Blasters watching the season premiere of “30 Rock”‘s final season. The only reason I could possibly handle this is because Tina Fey confirmed she’s trying to make a “Mean Girls” musical happen. Anyway, NYMag.com is keeping themselves busy with 10 classic “30 Rock” jokes presented as infographics and they even made a cut of the jokes in non-graphed form. Somebody in that art department has the best job. I’m terribly disappointed D’Fwan from “Queen Of Jordan” didn’t get his own chart, though. [NYMag.com]
In my mind, I am Ryan Lochte’s manager. Please, humor me. And no, I have no comments on his alleged penis pics at this time. Let’s stick to Ryan’s career. Even though I’m not getting 20 percent, I’ve taken a very keen interest in Ryan’s career path. I do it for the love of the craft. I made some suggestions for Ryan, role-wise, after his appearance on “90210″, but he chose to ignore me. That’s fine. What matters most is that I want to support Ryan in going after whatever makes him happy. Even if that means appearing on a bad reality show. I am pleased to announce that Ryan has booked some choice television gigs this week.
You’ll be happy to know that this morning he reported to the “30 Rock” set where he was put on camera (said like Jenna) for a cameo. Then, he was off to E!, where he has accepted a position as a correspondent for New York Fashion Week. I know, I was surprised too! Finally, our favorite talented Olympian finished off his day at “Live With Kelly.” Jeah! Just … jeah. Keep reading »
“30 Rock”‘s Liz Lemon isn’t a lady most of us take our sartorial cues from. But her witty one-liners? That’s another matter. You can broadcast love for Liz with this cute powder blue tee from the NBC Store, emblazoned with Liz’s famous phrase “I want to go to there.” And if that’s not your favorite Liz-ism, they’ve got “What the what!” and “Blurgh!” tees as well. Did anyone else realize there was the proper spelling of “blurgh”? [$26, NBC Store]
Call it an enigma wrapped in a mystery stuffed in a donut. “Community”‘s Donald Glover has signed up to play Young Tracy Jordan on an upcoming episode of “30 Rock.” Actually, it’s going to be during “30 Rock”‘s second-ever live episode, so that should be pretty exciting. Apparently, this isn’t Glover’s first go-around as Tracy. He also recorded “Tracy’s” voice on the full-length version of “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah.” Said producer Robert Carlock, “Tracy wasn’t available, so Donald came in and [performed the extra material],” he explains. “I don’t think you can tell. It’s pretty remarkable. All the spoken stuff is Donald doing Tracy.” The live episode will air April 26. [TV Line]
Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Nick Cannon, the essence of Hugh Grant in every single movie he has ever made, and “America’s Kidz Got Singing” star Jenna Maroney have a dream. And that dream is that your butt will be in a seat on the opening night of “MLK Day.” It’s a feel-good rom-com about blacks and whites, love and heartbreak, and not having a date with whom to observe a government holiday.
It looks terrible. And thankfully, it only exists on “30 Rock.” [BuzzFeed]
Sex only makes things worse. Look, I only took that that napkin because I wrapped some chicken in it. Would I help if I told you were doing sexual espionage? Yes, we watched the “Shit Liz Lemon Says” video, even though that meme is so 18 seconds ago. Blerg! [Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »
The “30 Rock” season six promo is here! When the show comes back on January 12, Liz Lemon is hiding something from the “TGS” cast and crew. Is it a baby? A new boyfriend? The secret recipe for the dust on Sabor de Soledad chips? If I know Liz Lemon (and Jack Donaghy, and Jenna Maroney), she won’t be able to keep it a secret for long. Oh, blerg! [Celebuzz]

Perhaps this will be the season that Liz Lemon finds love? “30 Rock” has put out a casting call for a new love interest, and it certainly has our mental gears turning. On the show, Tina Fey‘s character has been wooed (or tried to woo) Dean Winters, Jason Sudeikis, Matt Damon, and Jon Hamm. Who could possibly be next in that trajectory? The show is looking for an unknown between the ages of 36 and 40, who can embody “California-bred with liberal values and a youthful innocence.” But we don’t want to limit ourselves just to that. After the jump, who we’d like to see get the part. Keep reading »
