Synopsis:

"QUEEN OF JORDAN" TAKES OVER "TGS". SHERRI SHEPHERD AND MARY STEENBURGEN GUEST STAR. The launch of Angie Jordan's (Sherri Shepherd) new clothing line brings "Queen of Jordan" back to "TGS", but the cameras focus on Jack (Alec Baldwin) when news about his wife, Avery, forces him to confront his feelings for Diana (guest star Steenburgen). Meanwhile, Liz (Tina Fey) finds herself in a feud with the reality show's youngest cast member.

Yes, that episode title is real.

when an ancillary character becomes the story's central character you knew the writers were scrapping the bottom of the barrel - even the jokes were really really weak - it played out like a CBS comedy ;)

Loved it. The baby stole everything. And again, they nailed that stupid reality show format.

Yeah, they pissed on the "reality show" thing pretty good. :up:

Didn't like it when they did this before, didn't like it this time either.

This did feel self-indulgent.

I'm sure the writers had more fun thinking of ways to parody reality shows using the 30 Rock characters than most of us did watching it.

You can kinda tell this show is slouching its way toward its series finale.

I enjoyed it as a change of pace, but I definitely wouldn't want to see more than one Queen of Jordan episode per year. That said, D'Fwink responsibly!

Also, even though she's only good for a handful of episodes per season, I hope they don't write Elizabeth Banks out of the show completely.

Interesting responses. I thought it was pretty funny.

This episode felt like it was an hour long, whereas Community felt like it was only 15 minutes.

I couldn't even finish it. Absolutely terrible.

I thought it was pretty funny, although nothing beats when somebody threw a glass of water into a dog's face from last year.

I hated the first one and I hated this one.

Same here. The problem I have with this type of spoof is that the target is already so cartoonish and stupid to begin with, so making a parody of it just feels redundant.

Didn't really care for this one.

Itís definitely low hanging fruit. I also think one's enjoyment may depend on whether you watch those Bravo shows. I don't. Not many laughs for me last night.

I couldn't stop laughing.
And what was up with the reference to John Mark Karr. So obscure.

The line to kiss jack saved the ep a little.

It had some laughs but I hate it when they have to change the entire format of the show to spoof realty shows which I hate and would never watch.

Hope this is the last Queen of Jordan episode.

This show had been on a roll lately, but this episode was not good. A few big laughs but overall, I did not like it one bit.

I thought the first time they did this was brilliant, but it didn't need to be done again.

Awful. The gimmick episode last week was great, this one was a bomb. I guess the fact that I absolutely loathe "reality" shows like this made me hate it even more. Unfunny and obnoxious.
I won't take it with cheese. :(

I liked the last Queen of Jordan quite a bit, but this one was terrible - probably the worst episode of 30Rock yet. Sure, there's no way to top last week's outstanding live episode, but this was just abysmal.

I watched this a couple times now. I remember hating the first one. But there were plenty of good moments here (Liz and the baby wearing the same dress, Kenneth's time on the walkway and cocaine joke).

Anyone notice that the first few notes of the 'Queen of Jordan' soundtrack sounds like the Windows startup chime? I watch this on Hulu (thus, on my PC) and it catches me off-guard every time.

Ugh, fucking terrible. The first 30 Rock in a long time where I didn't even crack a smile. :(
