Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Jack (Alec Baldwin) puts Liz in charge of an event for Angie (Sherri Shepherd) in the hopes that she can emotionally manipulate Angie into making an appeal to Tracy and lure him back from Africa. The "Queen of Jordan" cameras bring Jack some embarrassment while leaving Jenna starved for attention. A lost love returns to Frank's (Judah Friedlander) life, causing him to question his maturity. Susan Sarandon guest stars.


Episode 17 of 23**

**NBC added 1 extra episode, because they made the 100th episode on April 21st 1 hour (which counts as 2 episodes)

Q&A with Tina Fey which NBC posted today.

And oh, apparently someone who writes for 30 Rock reads dvdtalk's Other Forum for the Teacher/Student posts.

I hate the real housewives and just wished they did a normal episode and they could maybe did a 3 minute segment on the bad cliches of the real housewives.

Jack talking about the DL list was funny.

This might have been the best ep of the season.

As someone that has to deal with these awful reality shows from time to time as part of my job...they really nailed the hell out of the style. Starting with the Queen of Jordan title...that is absolutely what that show would have been called.

"Jack, Tracy's Gay Boss" was such a perfectly placed joke, as well as "Dotcom, Grizz's Best Friend" followed by "Grizz, Greg's Best Friend" and then Grizz takes a call from Greg, who we've never seen.

The jokes really kept coming on this one.

Loved how Jack eventually got his own intro card as "Gay Jack" and the clip of him falling down

Liz, Another Person
Kenneth, Elderly Page

Jack: "TGS will be airing another 'Best Of' special"
Liz: "Actually, Legal said we can't use the word 'best'"

Jack was pure gold this episode.

NBC knocked it out of the park with their sitcoms this week.

Shocked at the love for this. I thought it was easily the worst episode of not just the season but the entire series. I understand what they were going for, but it just didn't work for me at all.

Me too. I thought it fell really flat.

Loved the quote from Jack about only farting once a year on a hillside.

Didn't work for me either. A few good lines, but wasn't digging the format.

"I drank all the throwing wine!"

I was surprised how much I liked this, even the normally insufferable Angie.

Other than a few funny lines, I found the episode and the format of it pretty annoying.

This was the first episode of 30 Rock I ever considered turning off, I just didn't like it at all.

Like mentioned above..I didn't like the format as I detest all shows "reality" but there were tons of jokes to be found. Jack was gold as usual.

+1. My least favorite episode of the series, by a wide margin.

Looks like a love or hate episode. I can see how the format would annoy people but I thought the jokes were great

I fucking hate Sherri Shepherd, but can take her in small cameos. But an entire episode? No thanks.
