30 Rock Live

I loved 30 Rock Live last night. I loved it for many reasons but mostly because it took the chance. The early days of TV, the "Golden Days" as they are now fondly recalled, were all about live TV. Mistakes happened, but the adage "the show must go on" was always present. Not that anything unusual occurred, but the show had fun with it, including Tracy breaking character and a picture falling off the wall.

And the show was performed twice, once for the East Coast and again for the West Coast. Well conceived, well planned, and well executed. With inside jokes and tons of punch lines, [“Why do people do anything? Because they’re rich or they have Attention Deficit Dis — Hey! Look at Lutz’s shirt.”] 30 Rock continues to impress. And perhaps this type of stunt becomes an annual event. I hope new viewers came along for the ride; they are watching another classic on TV.
