Yes, it's still early here on the West Coast, but I'm willing to bet this is the happiest news I'll hear today (unless, you know, "Friday Night Lights" gets renewed). I think "30 Rock" was the best new comedy this year — and it's evolved into one of the best shows, period. It's a perfect fit in NBC's Thursday lineup, and there's always at least one line that I can't believe they got away with saying on network TV.
