If there is one thing that NBC does right, it is Thursday night comedies. The peacock network has long championed some of TV's best sitcoms. The jury is still out on whether or not their new effort Outsourced
will be the next buzzy show like Community,
or an unfortunate misfire like Kath & Kim
. Either way NBC still has a solid lineup of comedies that has kept me tuning in all these years.
Here are some clips, interviews and deleted scenes from last night's best three comedies: The Office
, 30 Rock
Before I get to the videos, did anyone notice the new opening credits? I
usually fast forward through them, but as I was manning my DVR I noticed
the new extended opening credits. Last year they added Ed Helms to the
credits (no doubt in response to his success on The Hangover
but this season everyone gets their due. It is a good thing they are
finally promoting the supporting cast because they will be carrying the
show next season.
The first video is a deleted scene that fills us in on what (poor) Toby has been up to during his summer break. We also get some insight into the new and improved Kevin. Forget Ryan's website WUPHF (it is real, I checked), I want to ready Toby's novel, Event at Mystery Cove
The next video is a real treat because we get to see Angela Kinsey (Angela) and Jenna Fischer (Pam) interview each other. Kinsey promises a real "wing-dinger" of a season (whatever that means). 30 Rock
Here is a clip of a highlight from last night's episode. Tracy is hallucinating and seeing Kenneth all over the place. Oh, and to answer Frank's "would you rather" question. "Did I do that?"
Also, just a heads up to hard core 30 Rock
fans. NBC is holding a contest to award two free tickets (air fare and hotel included) to be in the audience of the live taping of 30 Rock
next month! Click here
And for the grand finale, here is a can't miss clip of Betty White rapping along with Abed and Troy. Consider this clip as "Exhibit: A" for why this show is so awesome.
