Gottawatchit…

Whether or not you are a regular viewer (but you should be) of the surreal genius of 30 Rock, you’ll want to tune in on Thursday, 10/14. SNL alum Tina Fey heads back to her roots by broadcasting the show LIVE.  All reports are they will still use flashbacks and jump cuts, but it will all be live. They’ll even have to do it twice, once for Eastern and Central Time Zones and a second time for the West Coast. Both versions will be available online after the live broadcasts so you can look to see which jokes they tweaked on the second one.

This isn’t a first for NBC; ER did a live broadcast a few years back. Pop quiz: What two teams were playing the baseball game being watched in the doctor’s lounge?

This should be fun. Tracy Morgan alone is so incredibly unpredictable, there’s no telling what might happen. My guess is the censor will have his finger on the 7 second delay all night.

A Live episode of 30 Rock on NBC, Thursday, October 14 at 8:30/7:30 Central.  Gottawatchit!


More to Come.
