5 Reasons You Should Be Watching (Or Should Continue Watching) 30 Rock

I'm too lazy to write a full post as of yet (maybe later), and I haven't done a list in a while. So, here's 5 reasons why you should keep 30 Rock alive on television:

5. They have the funniest guest star roster EVER! Jerry Seinfeld, Al Gore, Tim Conway, James Carville, Chris Matthews, Andy Richter, David Schwimmer, Edie Falco, Matthew Broderick, and that’s mostly from Season 2! Plus, they are not just cop out appearances; they are flat out funny and satirical bits...cajun style.

4. Tina Fey has played Sarah Palin, so according to Republican guidelines she has foreign policy experience and is qualified to be a Vice Presidential candidate. She's pretended to be a woman who's pretended to be a political leader and a qualified running mate.

3. Smart funny is in short supply. This show makes up for at least 64% of it on television. Plus, smart funny is even funnier when really well written stupid funny comes into play. It’s high brow meets low brow, has some drinks, and makes a baby.

2. This show is a fitting replacement for Arrested Development. It has tightly woven continuity that leads to running gags, just like A.D. It has a dysfunctional family led by a boozing matriarch, just like A.D. Hell, it has Will Arnett just like A.D. Let’s just hope that NBC has more vision than Fox and doesn’t cancel it after three seasons. Will Arnett and Amy Poehler kinda has a kid on the way.

1. Jack Donaghy is my running mate, and any works of his being supported supports our Presidential campaign. So don’t forget to buy 30 Rock on DVD! Season 1 now available, and Season 2 coming October 7th! (Season 2 is also being rerun on Nbc.com. Episodes 5-9 are up.) Also, Season 3 premieres on October 30th, so you have plenty of time to catch up and memorize the lyrics to “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah”.
