YES! More Will Arnett!!! His outtakes on the season 1 DVDs were amazing.

EDIT: Here are some of said outtakes.

Alright episode, was funny and enjoyable but felt a little "off".

I like seeing Tina Fey's life in shambles... it reminds me of uh mine.

Was anyone else watching the HD feed? After about 30 seconds of the intro, it switched to Primetime Live (or one of those shows). For about a minute I thought it was part of the show.

What's the deal with Tina's fat friend (can't remember her name). is she pregnant in real life or did she really gain weight during the off season

Good episode!

Church of Practicology (the religion founded by the alien king living inside Stan Lee), Will Arnett @ Geiss' get-together, Tracy's dream sequence with Kenneth.

WTF was with that stupid mini-BEE short at the end?

Ten times better than last week's episode. Was that new View chick always Tracy's wife?

I believe so -- she was in last season's Valentine's day episode.

HD was fine for me; no interruptions.

I'm pretty sure Jane Krakowski's just wearing a fat suit; when her "fat" was showing under the bottom of her shirt, it looked pretty fake. Plus, her face/head looks the same size as it was last season.

For me, the highlight came when Kenneth was hitting on Tracy's wife. That killed me.

It's been a good night for comedy.

I don't usually find Kenneth funny, but this scene had me rolling.

There was so much that had me LOL last night.

The shirtless wrestler guy going after Arnett was hilarious.

Further proof that Seinfeld was very funny but Jerry Seinfeld ... eh, not so much.

I enjoyed this episode but didn't really laugh that much.

Ah, you donít enjoy a good rape joke every now & again. I didnít understand that BEE-Mini thing at the end of 30 Rock either, it was stupid.

The highlight of this episode was definitely Kenneth hitting on Tracyís wife (The crazy bitch who doesnít believe in evolution from The View). I donít usually find the Jenna parts of the show that funny, but the part where she was in Dr. Spacemanís office & they showed a wall of pictures of his clients & Alf was on their, that had me laughing.

Loved seeing Rip Torn again; Always brings back memories of The Larry Sanders Show, followed by anger that Sony has only released season 1 & a (although kick-a**) ďbest ofĒ DVD & not the rest of the series.

Good episode but I enjoyed the premiere just a but more. I agree with RichC2, it was a funny & enjoyable enough episode but it felt "off".

I also didn't laugh too much. I think sometimes Gob (Will Arnett) sucks all the oxygen out of a scene.

Must have been an Austin thing. Same thing here. I also had some sound issues. I had to switch to the normal feed.

I really liked Liz's exclamation of "Nerds!" for some reason.

That and "Me Want Food!" I wonder if Jane Krakowski is going to wear that fat suit all season.

I'm not sure 30 Rock could disappoint me right now. With The Office fading a bit and all of this year's "comedies" being atrocious, I look forward to 30 Rock more than any other show right now. They've set Donaghy and Tracy up so well as characters that they almost can't not be funny to me (for now). And even Tina Fey is growing on me... a bit. She still has a "trying to hard to be funny" feeling to her, but she's getting better almost every episode.
