Emmy Nods

July 17, 2008

Just caught half of the Emmy nominations  – 30 Rock was nominated for Best Comedy, Alec Baldwin was nominated for Best Lead Actor, and Tina Fey was nominated for Best Lead Actress.

There may have been more, but frankly I was in the shower and didn’t know when they’d be announced, so I rolled the timing dice and lost big.

Season 2 DVDs Release Date

July 11, 2008

Oh my Gawd you guys, it’s for real this time.

I got an email from Amazon today stating that Season 2 of 30 Rock will be available on 10/2. That’s later than the last projected release date that I had, but it’s available for pre-order RIGHT NOW. Go forth and spend.
