Yeah.

The Lutz's t-shirt gag was just awful + the laughter was offputting.

I feel like the kid that plays Kenneth doesn't handle live performance well, so they sort of built in some nervousness into his character.

A few times I couldn't understand what he said.

since it's a show about a sketch show, on a live version they should be able to take advantage of that. or take advantage of the format in some way - not just try to recreate their regular format as faithfully as possible. which i guess is neat but what's the point?

i don't mean to make it seem like 30 rock would be better as itself + sketches. but it's always seemed weird to me that they rarely have jokes that come from this show they're all writing, watching, and acting in. instead they have some more jokes about judah friedlander's hats, or lutz being weird.

so i think you can agree with me that they must DIE.

jack mcbrayer got his start in second city and iO, and i've occasionally seen him at ucb. he does fine with live performance.

i believe he's also been in a bunch of conan sketches

Ohh now I see: 'Sitcoms have been very popular in India since the late 1990s. Shrimaan Shrimati and Flop Show became extremely popular and are still remembered for their hilarious scripts and impeccable performances.'

I enjoyed it.

I'm a big fan of 30 rock. I didn't think the live broadcast was as good as a regular episode. But I found it surprisingly entertaining and I wouldn't mind seeing them try to do it again.


I grabbed the west coast episode off BTN. I'll probably watch it tonight to see how it turned out.

i really liked how sports night actually kinda made a schtick of rarely showing the show itself... like half the episodes started with them wrapping the show up and or ended with the countdown and intro.

I guess you have to compare it to a taped 30 Rock episode, and I only saw the West Coast feed, but was impressed with how they ran through the whole thing pretty flawlessly. Not too many other "sitcoms" on TV could handle a live performance like that. Maybe more jokes missed the mark but thought the spontaneity and overall effort made up for it.
His standup was so fucking bro'd out and he had like 20 minutes of material that hinged on the audience having seen Grandma's boy.

I tried watching this but live comedys shows just do my head in. I'm not used to watching shows done in front of a studio audience at all.

Good pups, haven't you ever noticed that the short clips of the sketches we do see are TERRIBLE? "TGS" seems like a legitimately awful show. Not sure why you'd want to see more of it.

- Kenneth was too giggly, made the character seem completely retarded unlike his normal doofy-ness, which was off putting.
- The Lutz thing was very dumb.
- good pups, are you stupid? I think this many seasons in you'd get the joke by now that TGS is a pretty bad show and any glimpse of sketches they give us seem purposely retarded/exaggerated.the actors of TGS are retarded as it is, that's why the show focuses on their lives off-screen. it's also kind of a knock at how audiences blindly like dumb stars. why would you want to see an actual TGS sketch?
- It was a sub-par episode in general, but they did fine. Personally, the production is one of the things I love about the show. Watching early season 1 where they hadn't really figured it out yet felt similar to this.

my favorite thing about the first season that they don't really do anymore was all the background references to the sketches that you never got to see - like the intercom announcements saying "jenna to the set please, for ________" or the prop guys walking around with absurd props or frank coaching the bear on how to fight the robot for the "robot vs. bear" sketch. it was sort of like how bill waterson explained "hamster huey and the gooey kablooie" in calvin and hobbes: it was bound to be way better in the reader's/viewer's imagination, so it doesn't need to be, and shouldn't be, actually shown.

one more thing, can they ban rachel dratch from this show/life?

she has never been funny and is annoying to look at. every time she's on screen she transforms the show into an awful SNL skit.
