30 Rock is on tonight, and I have plans to be on the couch staring at the TV for it. I’ve read more reviews than I thought possible about Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Everyone raves as though it is the best thing that has happened to TV in 30 years.
Problems I have with this show include but are not limited to – Matthew Perry is not funny. You can’t have a show about a sketch comedy and then only show two sketches and they are not funny. The lead actress being scary looking. Too many cast members to remember who does what.
I basically like Amanda Peet, that’s about it. It’s just not funny. Sure, it’s maybe not supposed to be THAT kind of funny. But come on. The writing is sub par. We’ve watched every episode trying to be fair and see why everyone likes it so much, and we end up with so many questions during the commercial break we play “why are we watching this crap” for the following hour.
30 Rock looks so much more promising. Tina Fey is great. I like the idea better. We’ll see how it goes tonight!
