    Another great episode. Too bad it was probably the last one we'll see until the strike is settled. [​IMG]

    I believe I read that the show had a few more in the can. I think we will see one or two more in December (after the Thanksgiving week of specials).

    According to the New York Times, the cast is peforming 30 Rock live on stage in Manhattan (in Chelsea). Tickets (for tonight) are sold out. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/19/ar...81b&ei=5087%0A

    SNL was performed at the same theater the other night.

    "Cougars"

    This show really has a way to keep piling on the jokes; they have to figure: hey, if this one doesn't get you, no wait for the next. The thing is, most of them work.. and the actors in this really sell the goofy nature of the whole premise.

    Everything about Lemon's relationship with a 20 year old were killer here; my wife and I, lets just say "in Liz age bracket" [​IMG] both appreciated it, laughed more then a little at some of the pop-culture references he missed out on..

    The end with her seeing him with his mom.. classic stuff.

    That was the only part I didn't like. Too predictable and weak writing. This show is better than that.

    I also didn't think much of "Cougars" because it lacked a certain amount of cohesiveness that I have come to expect with this show. It was more like throwing spaghetti and seeing what sticks to the wall.

    This was the first really great episode this season in my book. Unlike last season, the rest of this season has spaced the laughs out way too sparingly.

    "Secrets and Lies" was a great episode. Edie Falco is great in that role -- and the scene at the end where all those business execs are making confessions after Jack makes his is one of the best of the season.

    Anyone notice some new censorship in the repeat that aired last night? It was the ep with Carrie Fisher. Fisher's character used a couple of racial slurs that aired uncensored in the original broadcast but were bleeped last night.

    I think they were bleeped in the original airing as well.

    "This company has a strict 'Bros-Before-Hos' policy."

    Only Alec Baldwin could deliver this line utterly deadpan.

    Not for the airing I saw on the East Coast. I was taken aback that they aired uncensored, then surprised to see that they had been bleeped later on. Maybe NBC got calls about it after the original East Coast airing and bleeped it for the subsequent airings.

    I still have the HD recording from the original airing (NYC area), and they bleeped everything. She even turns her head so you can't make out what she says, so it was meant to be bleeped (ie, it was part of the joke).

    Weird. The SD feed I watched was left totally uncensored, which I found quite shocking.

    If anyone missed last Thurday's Christmas episode, with Buck Henry and Andy Richter as Liz' father and brother, respectively, go to NBC.com and watch it. Easily one of the best of the series yet and I think this season has been even better than the first. As Tracy Jordan might say, "A+, Liz Lemon!"

    I was hoping Jack's mom would be foiled, but ultimately there were more laughs with the Lemon's bickering.

    30 Rock is definitely one of the best thing. I hope they don't run out of episodes before this strike ends. I don't know how much more reality TV I can take [​IMG]
