On last night’s episode of “30 Rock,” the company has to undergo some cuts, and Liz Lemon is told she has to pare away 25 percent of her budget. But she can’t find anything to get rid of (straw are not an unnecessary expense!).

So, she decides to try to give the budget consultant “a taste of the Lemon” in exchange for her staff not getting fired. Things work out in the end, but not because she dons a slutty red ruched dress and hooker boots.

Jon Hamm is guest starring on “30 Rock” starting Feb. 5, and a clip from the episode has been released! Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) discovers she has a handsome neighbor when Dr. Drew Baird’s mail gets delivered to her by mistake.

About 25 years from now, Alice is going to be writing, starring in, and producing a show of her own, guaranteed. Either that, or she’ll be a highly acclaimed author. The girl is writing TV dialogue at age 3! Keep reading »
