Obviously, I wrote a sad post last night, here's a relatively happy one. My longtime colleague Marc Heiden sent me the link to a preview for the wonderful Tina Fey's new sitcom, 30 Rock. 30 Rock stars not only Tina Fey and her Second City castmate Rachel Dratch but also their 1990's castmate Scott Adsit, whom I have accepted into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior. As this, the 230th 4th of July since 1776 ends, I reflect that Scott Adsit's bright smile and beautiful, nearly bald head have more meaning for me than the flag of any nation.
The show looks so good, I only wish it weren't in a state of competition with the similarly themed Aaron Sorkin Show "Studio 60" and Jesus what's with the similar titles? Are you each trying to only run 6 episodes?
I hope people watch both shows and keep them both on the air for a while. That would be good.
In not entirely related news, I just read that latter day comic goddess Maribeth Monroe is apparently still performing on the Second City Mainstage. She's a woman to watch, I am to be trusted on these matters.
