Remember this video? "Telekinetic Coffee Shop Surprise"? It was created by marketing company ThinkModo to promote the Carrie remake, and depicts an insane prank where a woman seems to have mind-over-matter powers. And now, they're making a sitcom along the same lines.
Elaine Stritch passed away today at the age of 89. While the Broadway legend had decades of iconic live performances under her belt, tonight's a good time to celebrate her life on the small screen: As Colleen Donaghy in 30 Rock with a eulogy—The Greatest Eulogy of All Time—written and delivered by her onscreen son,…
30 Rockefeller Plaza is one of the most beloved buildings in New York City. Hell, there's even a TV show named after it. Now that Comcast, majority shareholder of NBC Universal, is growing into an Earth-swallowing corporate behemoth, they are looking to erect their huge glowing logo atop the skyscraper, replacing the…
Last night we said farewell to the Star Wars quoting machine that was 30 Rock. It was sad, beautiful and mind blowing — and the series finally revealed that Kenneth the Page is an immortal. Check it out!
Gone are the days when the richest people were handsome and debonaire. Consider it the Zuckerbergization of the business world. On last week's 30 Rock, Liz and Jenna encountered Thad Wormald. Thad is filthy rich because "he did an internet, and now the computers like him, and Wall Street is Google," as Jenna…
Choosing a domain name can often lead to drastic compromises in name recognition. Only the lucky few who acted quickly, or who have truly unique names, can claim lordship over theirname.com. I pity the John Smiths of the world. Nobody feels the hurt more than Jack Donaghy when, on last night's 30 Rock, he tries to…
It seems like just yesterday when TiVo was a verb. But thanks to the drab overlords of digital cable providers, we've been forced to adapt the blander and more brand-neutral DVR. On last week's 30 Rock, Liz Lemon expressed her longing for days gone by. Personally? I still catch myself remembering to "tape" episode.…
30 Rock's Jack Donaghy, as played by Alec Baldwin, had the same idea Apple has for their upcoming HDTV: ditch the remote and use your voice to control your TV. However! His TV hilariously failed because the voice recognition software was too good.
We're used to seeing Alex Ross' hyper-realistic style being applied to such straight-faced comic projects as Kingdom Come and Marvels, so it's a bit of a mindblower seeing him mash up the cast of 30 Rock with The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. And given that this painting has Judah Friedlander as a Martian, this…
The magic happens at exactly 25 minutes in. As Tina Fey describes how much insight a phone has into your life, Eric Schmidt, in his creepiest, creepy-friendly voice tells her, "And we want you to use a more powerful phone."
Last night 30 Rock prepared for the apocalypse, by filming a preemptive "fill in your disaster here" benefit. Robert De Niro had the pleasure of listing off how it might all end. Fingers crossed for Bird Apocalypse!
Need more proof that geek humor has gone mainstream? Check out the new trailer for Christian Slater's new show Breaking In, which name-checks Star Wars, Dragon*Con and Avatar. These days, TV shows prove they're hip by referencing geek culture.
The more realistic a CG human is, the creepier they become. There's nothing spookier than a half-computer half-child CG face on the big screen. We've ranked all the worst CG humans, in order of creepiness.
The perils of introducing your more popular friends to your favorite television shows were laid bare in last night's 30Rock. Now all we have to do is hope that the show's writers didn't have any real inside information.
On this week's 30 Rock, we found out Jack's (or Jack's designer's) choice of computer, and it's a weird one: It's a prop model of a forcefully-branded Windows computer, yet 30 Rock has historically been in love with Apple products.
Okay, we're officially calling Time of Death on the whole vampire thing. True Blood and Robert Pattinson love we could stomach, but Timbaland telling interviewers that his new single will follow the Twilight trend? It's gone too far.
I love Netflix On Demand precisely because it lets me watch 30 Rock episodes whenever I want. So I was horrified to notice, just now, that 30 Rock was going bye-bye on Oct. 1—along with other great shows.
We've all seen the big spoofs of scifi classics. Family Guy just recreated Star Wars and the Simpsons' Prisoner tribute was perfection. But nobody salutes science fiction better than 30 Rock's sly one-liners, which just slip it in there.
