Whoa..No Need To Resort To Ugly Stereotypes

Alec Baldwin awesome-sauce...



I agree with Alyssa. 30 Rock is having a meh season. The writers really need to take a vow to not a make a joke about Liz Lemon's digestive track for at least another five years.I'm still watching, though. There's always this sense that you can't make fun of black people--or maybe that sense just exists among talentless white comedians. But 30 Rock does some of the best race humor on TV. Heh--"Balanka! Balanka! Balanka!"

Jane Krakowski goes all in though. I think after Baldwin, she's the champ.
