30 Rock a Ratings Dud on New Night

30 Rock Oh man, I was hoping that moving 30 Rock to Thursday night would give it a little kick in the ratings pants. Quite the contrary, actually, as 30 Rock did even worse than in its previous timeslot. Last night’s show aired from 9:20 through 10:00 p.m., a result of the “supersize” Thursday night. Despite its lead-in by The Office, 30 Rock didn’t manage to maintain much of that audience. The show only had 5.2 million viewers on board. Previously, 30 Rock aired in the wasteland of Wednesday evening, paired with the now cancelled Twenty Good Years. In that time slot, they were drawing 6.3 million viewers at 8:00 p.m. I know there’s a little somethin’ out there called Grey’s Anatomy that is definitely going to pull viewers from 30 Rock, so we’ll see if the show stays put on Thursdays or gets moved elsewhere. Or, worse yet, gets cancelled (gulp). Come on folks, show it some love!

30 Rock Premiere Available Online

Tina Fey I guess not everyone will share my sentiment about 30 Rock, starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin—there are a lot of negative comments out there about the show—but I’m really looking forward to Wednesday’s premiere. Perhaps I was in the minority, but I just loved Fey on Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live and think her writing for the film Mean Girls was fantastic. Alec Baldwin is always a showstopper for me too. Any time he’s hosted SNL, he’s been incredibly funny, with excellent timing. I know, I know, there is already the behind-the-scenes-look-at-a-late-night-sketch-comedy-show on Studio 60, but try and give this one a chance.

That said, you can view the entire premiere episode at NBC.com—in advance of the premiere on Wednesday night. I’m dying to see it, but alas, will have to wait until tomorrow to check it out because I’ve just been too busy. Whether you watch it online or catch it on NBC Wednesday at 8:00 PM, I’d love to hear what you think of it. Good—Bad—or just, eh? Also noteworthy: Tina Fey will have a live blog following the show at NBC.com. Check it out.
