More than five decades after their one-night stand, Jack Donaghy's parents, Colleen (Elaine Stritch) and Milton Greene (Alan Alda), will reunite for the first time on the December 9 episode of NBC's 30 Rock.
"I first met Elaine probably 20 years ago but never worked with her before," says Alda. "I always knew the reunion would be interesting. We kid with each other a lot, and our characters have a common enemy in their son."
As for the "bizarre" story line, Alda says...

Smoke 'em if you got 'em, because Weeds may not be around much longer.
In Monday's sixth season finale, Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) sacrificed herself by claiming responsibility for the murder of Pilar. She was last seen surrounded by FBI agents at the airport, while her family was on a plane headed for Europe. Once again, it looks like Nancy's out of options. Or is she? Will we next see her plotting a season-long jail break? Series creator Jenji Kohan says getting stuck in major jams is certainly nothing new for Nancy.
Creator Jenji Kohan on Weeds' finale: "It's the end of a journey"
"We always tend to write ourselves into a corner to a certain extent," she says. "Everyone goes home, rests and comes back fresh and says, 'All right, how are we going to get out of this sh--? What have we done?' There were vague discussions of what's going to happen next year, but there's nothing definitive in the works yet."
Kohan talks to TVGuide.com about Monday's cliff-hanger, why the upcoming seventh season may be the last, and whether Nancy will be wearing an orange jumpsuit when the show returns...
Except for one slightly unhinged and all-too-brief run-in with Will and Emma ("Oh, hey, homewrecker!"), Terri Schuester has been strangely sidelined this season on Glee. Over the summer, the series' executive producers not only defended her faux pregnancy-inducing paranoia, but teased her big return.
"The thing about a show like this is you need villains. We love writing for her, and she's moving to all of us," Ryan Murphy said in July. "I think what she needs to do is date someone who will make Will pea green with jealousy. We're trying to figure out who that is."
Before that happens, Jessalyn Gilsig says her polarizing character will finally re-emerge in Tuesday's episode in a rather surprising way.
Skating with the Stars
Here's the cold, hard fact about Skating with the Stars' Rebecca Budig: She skated as a kid, but she assures you that gives her no advantage. Why? "We all have to be able to skate somewhat!" she tells TVGuide.com. "I can't even imagine if [I didn't know how to skate and] had to learn from scratch. It'd be even harder." Learning toe loops and salchows isn't the only difficult aspect of the upcoming ABC show for the actress, who's partnered with pairs specialist Fred Palascak — Budig plans to continue working on All My Children during her run on Skating. Find out how she's juggling acting and skating, who she thinks her biggest competition is, and why she wants to make her sister jealous.
