Review Tina Fey the writer-producer gets saddled with a so-so leading lady in Tina Fey, the actress -- just one of the hurdles that make 30 Rock something less than a joyous romp. NBC's decision to launch both this show and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip so close together still feels misguided, and few comparisons -- except perhaps Alec Baldwin's sinister network suit -- reflect favorably upon this half-hour version. Baldwin and co-star Tracy Morgan do yield a chuckle or two, but a Saturday Night Live pedigree won't be enough to anchor this "Rock" unless it gets consistently funnier, and fast...Liz Lemon (Fey) is the head writer of something called "The Girlie Show," a mediocre-looking sketch comedy with a semi-neurotic star (Jane Krakowski, subbed in for SNL's Rachel Dratch, now relegated to a cameo). Life is soon complicated, however, when the network puts Jack Donaghy (Baldwin) -- a GE suit with a mastery of microwave ovens -- in charge of production...Oily, intense and humorless, Jack responds to Liz's protestations with the premiere's most genuine laugh, telling her, "You have the boldness of a much younger woman." It's hard not to wish there was more writing on that level to go around, and if 30 Rock's going to survive, Baldwin's comedic chops will be tugging the lifeline...Despite her success with Mean Girls, Fey mostly hits too-familiar notes in the pilot. Moreover, she's a limited protagonist, which is problematic, since Liz is ostensibly the one sane voice amid the mayhem, what with the crazy actors, bean-counting executives and nerdy comedy writers. Even if truth is a defense, the stereotypes all feel a bit been there, seen that...Of course, Studio 60's modest ratings amid critical praise suggest this milieu hardly guarantees ratings gold, and perhaps a sitcom take will fare better. Still, watching 30 Rock it's easy to wonder if all the effort being expended on fictional incarnations of SNL might be better spent infusing the original with the boldness of a much newer show.

ReviewSource The Onion A.V. Club
Review Arrested Development's premature demise left fans despondent. Would they ever love another sitcom again? There will never be another Arrested Development, but cultists jonesing for its crack ensemble playing, exhilarating speed, rat-a-tat comic rhythms, hilarious supporting characters, eminently quotable dialogue, ingenious flashbacks and digressions, and brainy zaniness could find a powerful fix in Tina Fey's giddy backstage comedy 30 Rock. What other shows score big laughs by virtue of character names alone?...Creator Fey does double duty as the show's plucky protagonist, an oasis of stability in a swirling vortex of ego and craziness. Alec Baldwin brings his raspy gravity to the role of Fey's boss, a corporate shark who views anyone outside his tax bracket as a lower life form, and whose paternal "mentoring" of Fey comes laced with withering contempt. In a cast full of ringers, Tracy Morgan stands out as a movie star who, like The Simpsons Ralph Wiggum and Jay Sherman's patrician adoptive father on The Critic, seems to inhabit a personal universe infinitely weirder and more wonderful than the cold, grey world everyone else lives in...30 Rock's jazzy score, lush production values, New York atmosphere, and dazzling verbal wit give the show a cinematic scope redolent of Woody Allen's mid-period masterworks like Hannah And Her Sisters. But the manic pace and nonstop laughs make it easy to overlook the show's tricky emotional undercurrent, as Fey stumbles unsteadily toward middle age with an Emmy in place of a personal life. In one of the show's most resonant subplots, Fey lazily hooks back up with Dean Winters' self-described "beeper king" (who optimistically gambles on the pager's return, since "technology's cyclical") because he's safe and comfortable, albeit ultimately a groaning embarrassment to her. In its bittersweet moments, Rock is much more than just one of the funniest shows on television. Hopefully, NBC will continue to glean the sweet, sweet juices of Fey and company's "mind grapes" for years to come.
