Pushing 30

It’s back, it’s back, it’s baaaaaaaack! Yes, “30 Rock” and My Fake TV Wife Tina Fey are finally back on my television, where they belong. It’s been a long, long, long, long, long eight months without my Tina on my TV. I’ve coped mostly through a series of deep breathing exercises and also alcohol. Of course, tonight is also the return of “Parks and Recreation,” and this time back-to-back with “30 Rock” at 8 and 8:30. It’s like I died and went to smart, hilarious female-fronted comedy heaven.

Now, I know some of you (perhaps many of you) may still be harboring strong feelings about the show, Tina and her co-star Tracy Morgan from this summer. He said horrible, terrible, despicable things. And that should not be taken lightly. But a) he did apologize profusely, b) he is not the whole show, and c) he is kind of a certified idiot. Not kidding about that last one. I’ve met him and his is straight-up not entirely correct in the head. So I truly believe that he doesn’t actually believe the things he said about gay people. He just thought it would be funny to say the things he said about gay people. Still horrible. Still terrible. Still despicable. But I am not going to punish the whole show, which has been embraced and been honored for its LGBT inclusiveness, and I’m not going to punish Tina, who is Tina and you know loves us unconditionally, because of that idiot. But that’s how I feel about it, and not necessarily how you feel about it. Which I understand. Life is messy sometimes.

But, anyway, back to Tina. My adorable, adorable Tina was on Jimmy Fallon this week to promote the new season. And she was, as predicted, adorable. And we get a clip of the premiere, now with bonus dickies.


p.s. Oh, Tina, flashing your bra and your adult diapers at me already. It’s good to have you back.

How great that Liz is wearing the same hat as Hermione in the Deathly Hallows-nerds all around!

Yea! 30 Rock is back! (I have already forgiven Tracy - "forgive him father, for he knows not what he does?") Whatevs.

Tina USED to be my bestest tv girlfriend but Snarker stole her and made her, her WIFE! :( She was my fey sister.

P.S. Beginning to think PD is on to something here. ;)

I still don't like that she makes fun of single women. That whole Liz Lemon thing is just not quite right.

I love all of her other stuff though...

I love your blog to bits, but describing someone as an idiot is rather ableist, you know.

I'm happy for you that your fake tv wife is back. And I'm super happy that P&R is back because MY fake tv wife is Leslie Knope.
So yay!
