Storyline

Jack wants to integrate product placement in "TGS", but this idea is not very welcomed by the staff. Liz suspects that Tracy is not able to read since he never says what's on the cue-card nor has anyone ever seen him read anything. When Liz confronts her about her suspicion, Tracy pretends to be illiterate. Frank and Toofer talk Jenna into the idea that an actor is getting fired from the show. Her fears seem to get confirmed when Jack wants to appear on the show and Jenna sees her only chance not to get fired by using her sexuality. Jack's appearance on the show doesn't seem to be a good idea, because Jack blows up all his lines and also doesn't know how to act in front of a camera. Written by Anonymous

Alec Baldwin Is Just Very Good!
6 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fifth episode in Season One of 30 Rock is perhaps the most brilliant episode yet. This episode seemed to focus more on Jack than ever before and that's a good thing because it elevates this level to a height never seen before in this young season. It's funny, full of one-liners, and features Alec Baldwin at this best.

This episode, "Jack-Tor," has Jack wanting to integrate product placement in the show much to dismay of cast. Meanwhile, Jenna ha been told someone was going to be fired. In order for her not to be fired, she decides to act more sexually.

Overall, this is a very good, funny episode. Alec Baldwin is truly a comic genius and his role is more of a satire and he plays it off very well. I rate this episode 9/10.
