Thursday's episode of 30 Rock aired live on the both East and West Coasts, but the second broadcast made some sly adjustments.
During the East Coast broadcast, the opening number was sung by Jane Krakowski, while Cheyenne Jackson did the honors in the later broadcast, altering some of the lyrics. Chris Parnell tweaked the lyrics of Leo Spaceman's love songs, and the lines during the "commercial" from hook-handed Dr. Drew Baird (Jon Hamm) were also changed.
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...

What's in store for Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson during the new season of SVU? — Crystal
MICKEY: Executive producer Neal Baer tells me the unofficial theme of Season 11 is "Benson and Stabler against the world." First all up in their grill is Wentworth Miller, who guest-stars as a cop with whom Benson will both clash... and make sexy eye contact! Next, Emmy winner Christine Lahti's ADA Sonya Paxton will be kickin' a-- and takin' names, which won't sit well for Stabler initially, and Benson ultimately.

Jane Krakowski by Joe Kohen/WireImage.com; Sean Hayes by Jeffrey Mayer/WireImage.com
Jane Krakowski will make her first New York planks appearance since 2003 and Sean Hayes will make his Big Apple stage debut in a production of Damn Yankees hitting the City Center this summer. Though sources tell the New York Daily News' Gatecrasher the deals have yet to be inked, Krakowski would play Lola to Hayes' Devil. (The roles were filled by Bebe Neuwirth and Jerry Lewis when I caught a staging many years ago.)Krakowski has both a Tony and an Olivier Award on her mantle, and she also originated the lead in a workshop of Xanadu(but reportedly couldn't take the role to Broadway because of her 30 Rock commitment).
