Steel yourselves, comedy nerds: Liz Lemon might be playing Michael Bluth’s sister.
EW has confirmed that 30 Rock star Tina Fey is in early talks to star in This Is Where I Leave You opposite Jason Bateman. The film, based on Jonathan Tropper’s 2009 novel, follows a dysfunctional family that comes together to mourn the death of its gruff, withholding patriarch.
Bateman will play Judd, a middle child reeling over the recent implosion of his marriage; Fey would play his older sister Wendy, who is caught in an unhappy marriage of her own. Kathryn Hahn and Ari Graynor are rumored »

Fans of Liz Lemon and her lovably zany ways were left crying "Blerg!" (general Lemon-speak for swearwords) after "30 Rock" ended its seven-year run on Thursday - and viewers weren't the only ones left feeling a bit verklempt as the show wrapped.
In a farewell video titled "Thank You Tina Fey" posted on the show's website, members of "30 Rock's" cast and crew praised the former "Saturday Night Live" star for her skills as a boss and writer, as well as her kindness as a friend and colleague.

At the SAG awards, Tina Fey asked America to DVR last night's The Big Bang Theory and watch the finale of 30 Rock instead. Well, at least a few people took her advice: Thursday's 30 Rock exit was seen by 4.8 million viewers last night, the show's biggest overall audience in two years. Among adults under 50, the show averaged a 1.9 rating, its best performance since last March. By contrast, Big Bang was down 17 percent from its most recent original … all the way down to a 5.3 rating, or more than two and a half times the audience of 30 Rock. Meanwhile, NBC further honored 30 Rock last night by totally tanking it at 10 p.m. with the premiere of Do No Harm. The alleged thriller was seen by just 3.1 million viewers, and its 0.9 rating in the under-50 demo ranks as the lowest in-season premiere »

"30 Rock" comes to an end tonight, wrapping up seven seasons of bitingly funny TV-centric comedy with an hour-long finale in which viewers will be able to say goodbye to Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin), Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan), Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski), Pete Hornberger (Scott Adsit), Kenneth Parcell (Jack McBrayer) and the rest of the Tgs crew. While the regulars and their many personal and professional ups and down have been widely explored over the years with the help of guests actors like Will Arnett, Julianne Moore, Chloë Moretz, Jason Sudeikis and Jon Hamm, "30 Rock" has also made some of the most entertaining and odd use of celebrity one-off appearances and cameos over the years. Indiewire's Peter Knegt, Eric Kohn, Erin Whitney and Alison Willmore offer up picks for the dozen finest of those. Conan O'Brien, "Tracy Does Conan," Season 1, Ep. 7 Despite not losing her...
I'll admit I was biased against the NBC's new White House sitcom 1600 Penn, about a "dysfunctional First Family," after I saw the terrible, terrible, parody-esque bump the network made for it (seriously, isn't that the same style/music 30 Rock uses to make fun of terrible fictional NBC shows like "Queen of Jordan"?). But a series shouldn't be punished because of an inept promo editor, and some early positive buzz from a few trusted sources had me watching the first three episodes with cautious optimism. Unfortunately, that feeling didn't last through even one segment. The pilot, which aired as a sneak peak in December, is (confusingly) not the episode that will (from my understanding) be kicking off the series this month. It's a shame, too, because the pilot at least explains the set up, which the second episode sorely needs. Hit the jump for the Who's Who of 1600 Penn, and whether it's worth tuning in for. »
