Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Jack goes before Congress, hoping to use his wiles and charm in a discussion of NBC's merger with KableTown. When a congresswoman (Queen Latifah) pushes for more diversity in the programming, Jack turns to Tracy to develop ideas. Meanwhile, Liz butts heads with her writing staff; and Jenna supports Kenneth's return to the page program. Rob Reiner guest stars.

The jokes about L&O being canceled were pretty funny as was Lutz and Tracy

Rob Reiner was hilarious. "Sorry, hips!"

I loved Latifah's stereotypical "powerful speech that goes no where"

Thought the end sketch, from Let's Stay Together( A DotCom Production,) was the best bit.

Loved the jabs at NBC for cancelling the original Law and Order.

Don't bring back Reiner since he was not funny lol.

Funny when Jack mentioned Sunday Night Football with its black coaches and black players as a program with diversity.

Also the joke with Jenna about being torn down and being reconstructed after having sex with Mickey Rourke.

BTW. I rewound my DVR and the DotCom Production logo proves that it is Tracy Jordan backwards.

Spoiler:

The shadow for the DotCom Productions logo is Nadroj Ycart.


I liked the last bit that sent Bookman over the edge:

"I'm going to kill that fat cracker.

I'm part Inuit, this is a hate crime."

The season premiere was weak which was shocking since Tina Fey wrote it.

Season 4 was uneven but it had its moments.

Still it is better than most shows on TV.

Can't believe people are complaining about the laughs. Did they ever laugh?

The show has completely rebounded from a subpar season. The Dove Blood episode is still on my DVR. I think I've watched it 7 times.

Way too early to judge the season, but I'd put 30 Rock back ahead of Modern Family.

Modern Family was clearly better last season than 30 Rock.

Another great episode. Jenna going off on Kenneth was awesome.

"I think you've turned into your--"

Then Liz got his name wrong. Its also funny because Donald Glover used to write for 30 Rock.

Reiner's goofy smile and nod of agreement after that line was priceless.

Wow, I cant even remember the last time I laughed this much during this show! Easily the best episode this season, and one of the best episodes in the series! All the shots at the nbc shows were great!

Looking forward to next weeks live episode!
