Intro for January 31, 2013
30 Rock ends tonight. Most of the time when shows end, they promote it so hard, the ending of it, that by the time it actually ends you’re thrilled that it’s finally ended. Why has the end of 30 Rock seemed so quiet?
“It’s not funny anymore and the last few seasons sucked and it’s about time for it to be over,” rag, rag, rag, rag, rag.
This though is my favourite piece, so far, on the series finale, honouring a show that, well, wasn’t considered “successful” enough to leave a legacy. That’s...actually kind of OK. Tonight it will be Tina Fey > Mimi. Although last night, because I was packing, I totally forgot about Mimi’s American Idol. Until Lo messaged me with this photo -- see below. For shame! Why would anyone prioritise travel preparation over Mimi? I turned on the DVR immediately to watch Mimi turn every contestant tragedy into an opportunity to talk about the adversities she’s been able to overcome.
