Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin
"In five years, we'll all either be working for him... or be dead by his hand."
It's been more than five years since Jack (Alec Baldwin) uttered those foreboding words about Kenneth (Jack McBrayer) on 30 Rock, but now that the NBC comedy is heading into its seventh and final season (Thursday at 8/7c), one of those predictions may just come true.
"We certainly have not forgotten about that," co-showrunner and executive producer Robert Carlock tells TVGuide.com. "I think it would be disappointing if one of those didn't happen. There are so many things we want to do before it's over."

But there's so little time. The three-time Emmy winner for Best Comedy Series will return for a shortened 13-episode run — or a "full-out sprint," as Carlock calls it. "When we were doing 22 episodes, there are sort of three phases you go through. One usually takes you through about 10 or 11 episodes. There's a sprint to that with an arc, then there's a wait and you usually do your weirder episodes while you're treading water, and then you have your sprint ...
Bryan Cranston, Catherine O'Hara
Over the course of 30 Rock's run, we've met most of TGS' extended family: Tracy's wife, Jack's brawling siblings and Donaghy matriarch Colleen, Liz's folks and stunted brother, Jenna's mom, even Lutz's look-alike mother. But the one (albeit murky) bloodline that has eluded fans so far has been the kin of hillbilly page-turned-janitor Kenneth Parcell (Jack McBrayer). But no more!
30 Rock is gearing up for its second live episode Thursday, and Tina Fey just hopes it goes better than that time she threw up during Saturday Night Live.
"I had five minutes to go before ...

Thursday night's NBC All-Star Party, held in conjunction with the Television Critics Association press tour, brought out a rather interesting mix of characters: A new superhero (The Cape's David Lyons), a legendary TV producer (David E. Kelley), Beverly Hills socialites (Paris and Kathy Hilton) and even an Oscar winner (Kathy Bates). But the crowded lobby of the Langham Hotel in Pasadena quickly turned into a place where old friends got a chance to catch up and new friends were made.

NBC's hit comedy 30 Rock will air two live episodes — one for the east coast, one for the west — this Thursday, and Tracy Morgan promises that the audience can expect the unexpected: "Somebody gonna get pregnant!" the star joked.
Tina Fey and company have been working tirelessly over the past week to convert Studio 8H in Rockefeller Plaza, currently home to late night staple Saturday Night Live, into the world of 30 Rock, including Jack's office, Tracy's dressing room...
Jack McBrayer and Conan O'Brien
Until Conan O'Brien is legally able to appear on TV in the fall, he's trying a different way to make people laugh: a stage show.
Conan O'Brien debuts on stage with Self-Pleasuring Panda
O'Brien returned to Los Angeles over the weekend to perform at the Gibson Amphitheatre, which is just a few buildings away from his now-vacant Tonight Show stage. The proximity fueled the comedian further in taking on evil television executives, comparing NBC to Lord of the Rings' Mordor, the place where television the ring goes to die.
So how is Coco moving on, besides, of course, getting his own TV show on TBS?
Though he's legally prohibited from being funny on television — until he debuts on TBS in November anyway — Conan O'Brien brought laughs, jabs at his former employer and even a new character on the road with him as he kicked off his live comedy tour.
"This is the first time anyone has paid to see me. They've ...
