NBC's "30 Rock" and "Community" returned last week to continue their 6th and 2nd seasons, respectively (my Thursdays just got a lot better). Both shows returned in prime form.
If you don't already know, "30 Rock," starring Tina Fey (maybe the only funny woman on television), is among the best comedy shows around.
Last week's episode, "Mrs. Donaghy," focused on marriage, portraying it as a cutthroat game of one-upmanship.
A misunderstanding caused by Liz's bride-like attire and the ceremony being held in French, causes Jack, who was supposed to have married Avery (Elizabeth Banks, the closest you'll get to a second funny woman on television, and in the same show!) to marry Liz.
Liz, with peer pressure from her TGS (originally called The Girlie Show) team, leverages the signing of divorce papers in order to get a better budget and regain perks lost from Kabletown's (*cough* Comcast) acquisition of NBC.
Meanwhile in plot B, budget cuts force Jenna and Danny to share the same dressing room, turning them into a bickering married couple with Kenneth as their "child."
Tracy Jordan is MIA for most of the episode because he is off hosting the international pornography awards.
