A Titanic-sized blerg is approaching, and it’s called No More 30 Rock.
Tina Fey’s highly decorated NBC comedy winds to a close on Thursday, Jan. 31 at 8 p.m. with an hour-long series finale. In the farewell, titled “HOGCOCK!/Last Lunch,” Liz (Tina Fey) is trying to adapt to adoption, a contemplative Jack (Alec Baldwin) meets up with ex-flames Elisa (Salma Hayek) and Nancy (Julianne Moore), Jenna (Jane Krakowski) is working on a
Bro Body Douche Presents The Man Cave TGS farewell song, Kenneth (Jack McBrayer) is busy being the new president of NBC, which is totally taking away from his paying attention to Tracy (Tracy Morgan), and Ice-T and Nancy Pelosi somehow magically fit into the plot.
Watch a clip from the episode below to see Liz and Jack exchange punchlines in his office for the last time, and then start your crying/dry heaving.
Having eliminated Hank’s granddaughter as his competition (here’s a “There, there.” card, Kaylie), Jack Donaghy is receiving the promotion of his dreams: He’s the new CEO of Kabletown! In the third-to-last-ever episode of 30 Rock, which airs at Thursday at 8 p.m. on NBC, Jack (Alec Baldwin) is flooded with congratulatory goodies from all sorts of folks, including Liz (Tina Fey). As you will see in the clip below, her note is beautifully written, in a cool ranch kind of way.
Also in the episode, Jack persuades Liz to come with him to Florida, where they discover a secret about Jack’s deceased mother, Colleen (Elaine Stritch). Meanwhile, inmates Jenna (Jane Krakowski) and Tracy (Tracy Morgan) are running the asylum (TGS). READ FULL STORY

Add another name to the list of celebrities who will help 30 Rock bid farewell: Salma Hayek is returning to guest-star in the NBC comedy’s series finale, EW has learned.
Details of her appearance are being kept under wraps. The film actress appeared in a half-dozen episodes in season 3 as Elisa, the nurse whom Jack (Alec Baldwin) almost married, even after learning that she killed her cheating husband. Elisa won’t be the only blast from Jack’s romantic past in the episode; it is also known that Nancy (Julianne Moore) pops up. READ FULL STORY
Parks and Recreation isn’t the only NBC comedy turning politicians into guest stars this season. Nancy Pelosi will appear in the series finale of 30 Rock, the network confirmed today.
There are no details of how the House Minority Leader — who once served as a guest judge on Top Chef — figures into 30 Rock‘s final episode. She did tell The Washington Post (which first reported the news): “I would do almost anything Tina Fey asks me to do.”
Ice-T and Julianne Moore will also pop up in the hour-long finale, which was shot last month and airs Jan. 31.
30 Rock has previously featured such political power players as Al Gore, Condoleezza Rice and Mayor Bloomberg.

The group just announced the nominees for its annual awards, which will be handed out Feb. 17 at simultaneous ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York.

Is a marriage proposal not real until Jack Donaghy knows? On the Nov. 29 episode of NBC’s 30 Rock, Liz (Tina Fey) lets her boss in on her big news — and Jack (Alec Baldwin) is positively un-Donaghy-ian in his reaction. Watch it below: READ FULL STORY
Any publicity is good publicity, right? Not if you’re 30 Rock‘s Jenna Maroney, an incredibly vain, insecure star who gets jealous of babies for their soft skin. So when Jenna gets some bad press in a tabloid called Them during this week’s episode, the TGS team will do anything to keep her from seeing it — including staging an elaborate fake seduction that involves a moist mop and Kenneth’s hairless shins.
Is it as hot as Liz and Criss’s sultry trip to the office supply store from last week’s episode? What’s grosser: Kenneth getting covered in mop juice, or Jenna “answering fan mail” by rubbing pairs of underwear with baloney, then stuffing them into envelopes? Is 30 Rock the most weirdly perverse TV show in network history? Decide for yourself after watching the clip below:
'30 Rock' returns tonight: Sex! Ann Romney's Horse! And... Voltron?! A preview of the sitcom's last season
The election is about to take an outrageously absurd turn. No, we’re not talking about the ramifications of last night’s presidential debate — we’re talking about the final season of 30 Rock, premiering tonight on NBC, which will tackle the race for the White House in its own uniquely absurd way. Don’t like teases? Can’t handle spoilers? Hate geeky references to Voltron? Then good lord, man, stop reading! SPOILER WARNING!
As 30 Rock is set to premiere its seventh and final season tonight (NBC, 8 p.m. ET), Alec Baldwin isn’t ready for it to end after all. “I offered NBC to cut my pay 20 percent in order to have a full 7th and 8th seasons of 30 Rock. I realize times have changed,” he tweeted Thursday morning.
The final season will have 13 episodes, including a supersized finale. From the beginning of the show, which revitalized Baldwin’s career and earned him six consecutive Emmy nominations (with two wins), there was a question of how long he’d play Jack Donaghy. In EW’s current cover story, Tina Fey says she took a Zen approach to Baldwin’s contract negotiations over the years. “You can’t control things by being nervous about it. There definitely were times where I expressed to him how I would very much like him to do it and how important it was to me — and if he thought we were going to continue without him, we would not. But I think by season 3 [we knew he was staying],” Fey says. “I had a dinner with him when I was very pregnant with my second child to say, ‘Let’s do season 7, come on. Let’s do it!’ And he said okay. I think I had the baby the next day. And now not a day goes by that he doesn’t go around to the crew and agitate for a season 8: ‘You’ve gotta change your minds!’ It’s like, ‘It’s not really up to me — and also, no.’”
