The Emmy darling (it took home seven 2008 statuettes, including Outstanding Comedy Series) continues to rock on with yet another fabulous guest star. Oprah Winfrey, appearing as herself, is assigned a seat right next to Liz on an airplane. It likely won't be a top-flight experience for Oprah, as a medicated and sky-high Liz hounds the sage talk-show host for personal advice. Back at 30 Rock, Tracy and Jenna, feuding as always, switch roles to determine whose life is harder. Then there's Jack, whose value system is tested by Kenneth and an Olympics debacle. - Dean Maurer

Morris has gone from comic relief to respected doctor and good friend. Tonight he takes another step in moving away from his goofy roots when he accepts a role recently vacated as a result of Pratt's death: big brother and mentor to Chaz. The transition doesn't exactly go smoothly when Banfield, who has already gone a few rounds with Morris, takes issue with his methods. But Morris appears ready to defend himself, even with the arrival of Banfield's husband (played by Courtney B. Vance, Angela Bassett's real-life spouse) at County. - Rhoda Charles
