Ladies and gentlemen and also Forons:
I strike that and reverse it.
After actually viewing 30 Rock continuously on DVD this last week, I now declare:
At first it seemed contrived and a bit forced; now it's found itself.
The thing is: the 2 shows are completely different animals. Studio is a witty melodramatic nightime soap.
30 is an cerebrally slapstick sitcom, like Scrubs or.....yes: Arrested Development.
I get it, I see it, I like it.
Now get over here and blow me.
