NUP_111035_0091What NBC says about the first two episodes:

JACK (ALEC BALDWIN) MAKES ADJUSTMENTS TO SAVE MONEY AND STAY RELEVANT DURING THE RECESSION. STEVE BUSCEMI GUEST STARS — Jack (Baldwin) informs Liz (Tina Fey), Tracy (Tracy Morgan) and Jenna (Jane Krakowski) that “TGS” needs to make immediate adjustments to become more relatable. In an effort to do their part, Jenna (Krakowski) decides to makeover her image, while Tracy (Morgan) attempts to regain touch with the common man. In the meantime, Jack sends Liz (Fey) and Pete (Scott Adsit) on a mission to scout new “TGS” talent while Kenneth (Jack McBrayer) leads a Page strike. Judah Friedlander and Keith Powell also star.

NUP_134171_004730 Rock is a funny show. Nobody can argue that and with teh first two episodes of season 4 that I saw it does not make me change my mind. I needed my Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) back and she is back in her quirky way with the premiere focusing on how Jack (Alec Baldwin) wants to hire a new cast member for the show which causes Liz to panic, and then the second episode marks the return of the very great Will Arnett as Jack’s nemisis.

The highlight for the first two episodes though is the supporting cast especially Jenna (Jane Krakoski) and Tracy (Tracy Morgan) who both play great together when news a new cast member is heard. Jenna even goes to Iceland to prove a point. Why? You will have to wait to see because it provides many laughs.

I hope this year that Tina and the crew rely less on the big guest stars they get and more on the wonderful supporting cast. If they can do that, the show will be even stronger. Plus, just give us Alec Baldwin all the time because he is plain awesome.

30 Rock airs after The Office on NBC at 9:30/8:30c.
