Thursday night, 30 Rock takes its curtain call.
After six years on the air, Tina Fey’s beloved NBC comedy is ending its run with an hour-long series finale. The series, which is set behind the scenes at an Saturday Night Live-like sketch comedy show, earned a devoted fanbase with its cultural satire and rapid-fire wit. 30 Rock premiered on NBC in 2006, just as the network was launching Aaron Sorkin‘s highly anticipated drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Stripâ€”another series revolving around a fictional sketch comedy program. Strangely enough, it was Sorkin’s hugely political Studio 60 that tanked, while Fey’s goofier series became the award-winning critical hit. (As a sidenote, it’s worth remembering that when Tina Fey first pitched the show, her original idea was basically the same premise behind Sorkin’s latest series, The Newsroom.)
