Tina Fey is returning to NBC, unless NBC loses its damn mind

Tina Fey is returning to NBC, unless NBC loses its damn mind

I think I’m not alone in saying that I mourned — and continue to mourn — the loss of 30 Rock from NBC’s Thursday night comedy line-up. Liz Lemon is the spirit animal for awkward, bookish, driven ladies everywhere, yours truly included. Hell, it’s not a night without some night cheese, am I right? Lemon may be gone from the airwaves, but Deadline is reporting more...

A year before 30 Rock completed its seven-season run on NBC, star Alec Baldwin began a relatively low profile part-time gig as host of the WNYC podcast Here’s The Thing, wherein he interviewed the likes of Chris Rock, Judd Apatow and Lena Dunham (listen below). Now, it seems, the celebrated actor and Capital One spokesman might soon use his on-mic skills in a higher more...

Though no specifics were given, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt yesterday said that he'd like to see Jay Leno keep working for the network, even after the top-rated host exits The Tonight Show. "We'd love him to stay on NBC in some capacity. Nothing would make us happier than to have him, a la Bob Hope, still be a presence on the network," Greenblatt said. "He more...

Teaming up with former Comedy Central senior VP of original programming Lou Wallach (pictured), NBC -- the network that has housed Saturday Night Live for nearly 38 years -- is developing a second sketch comedy series. Little is known about NBC's specific plans, but it seems the network is hoping to create a franchise similar to that of SNL, so that the future sketch more...

It looks like the sitcom gods are working in our favor. The untitled John Mulaney project, which NBC passed on this past pilot season, has been given new life, thanks to Fox. The network has ordered a new version of the pilot script and if they like it, will order six episodes, reports Deadline. The sitcom, executive produced by Saturday Night Live honcho Lorne Michaels, more...

Russell Brand calls out MSNBC anchors for being the idiots they are (Video)

Comedian Russell Brand had an amazingly awkward interview -- or was it simply amazing? -- on MSNBC's Morning Joe. The three news anchors seem nervous and make half-assed attempts at humor and repeatedly talk to the comedian as if he's not there "and as if I'm an extraterrestrial" as Brand describes it. Even after Brand points out that it's rude and weird, they continue. more...

As is usually the case each year, NBC's new schedule contains the most new comedies of all the major networks, with only two – Parks and Recreation and Community – returning. And just like last year, despite the release of its new programming, Community is nowhere to be found on the fall schedule. Our guess is that they’ll hold it again for spring – since it’s more...

It's official, Human Beings. NBC has renewed Community! Our friends at Greendale will return to NBC for at least another season -- 13 episodes is what we're hearing -- thanks, in part, to the eight percent key demographic viewership increase during this past Thursday's season finale and in greater part to the nonstop fan support the show receives online, despite its more...
