Alec Baldwin makes it worth watching.

The jokes are cheep, and formulaic.

Snappy dialog.

30 Rock is definitely an entertaining and humorous show.

Tracy Morgan - unwatchable .

The series became more willing to experiment and although not all of it works, I still enjoyed it.

The lines are dry, the acting is dry, the outcomes of nearly everything were predictable to the point where we were not looking forward to anything.

Its structure isn't particularly gripping, but it's what the show manages to do with its characters that makes the whole show so compelling.

Tina Fey is really beautiful woman and her semi-biographical representation is a enjoyable watch in as much as it provides a new view on how SNL does work to a certain extent.

The show basically sees her tackle many situations, mundane, monumental and sometimes bizarre involving the many members at the Universal NBC studio, and all while she is trying to run a successful TV show without losing her mind.

The humor's subtle but still incredibly enjoyable.

I'm having an empty feeling to lose my days with this awesomely dense comedy.

This shows was quite enjoyable, clever and funny.

Alec Baldwin is the scene stealer as the new network executive and even the normally unwatchable Tracy Morgan somehow finds his slot here.

However, there were some boring episodes.

If there is a negative, that is it - with the humour being so clever, you need some breathing space to sometimes get the jokes and being so snappy, you can easily miss things.

Even Alec Baldwin (and this is coming from a huge Baldwin fan), who has won several awards for this performance (can't imagine why), is simple, unexciting, uninteresting...

30 Rock really is in a class of it's own and I highly recommend it!

Alec Baldwin has such a rich insight into his convoluted, unpredictable character and plays him with such abandon -- it just makes you gasp!

I highly recommend it.

No matter what you think of the result, this represents a stunning improvement over the show's initial start.

Sow, 30 Rock is an excellent show and I definitely recommend you to watch it, it's just amazing, you'll find it interesting, fun, entertaining and hilarious.

It really is enjoyable.

I am a huge admirer of Tina Fey and think she is one of the funniest women on television, but the repetitive self deprecating humour here is a bit much.

Alec Baldwin is the scene stealer as the new network executive and even the normally unwatchable Tracy Morgan somehow finds his slot here.

Overall stupidly entertaining and sure to be a cult classic.

It's just tedious, after a while, this sort of thing.

Alec Baldwin is hilarious and subdued as the meddling nitwit boss, Tracey Morgan is genuinely brilliant as the wild and crazy black guy, and newcomer Jack McBrayer is thoroughly enjoyable as the creepy intern.
