October 15, 2009
30 Rock has set the bar so high that it can deliver five big laughs and a series of chuckles and still qualify as a disappointment.

One of the small miracles about 30 Rock' is that the writers can break out such meta-moments without popping the show's fictional-story bubble.
October 15, 2009
There are enough pointed, smart and effective barbs to make this show a must-see comedy even as it enters its fourth season.

30 Rock is not something you watch, it's a place you visit. Where everybody knows your name. And your withholding status. And your medical history. Where there's nothing wrong with being fun and popular and giving people what they want.
October 15, 2009
30 Rock remains one of the class acts of the current sitcom world.

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling very jump the shark right now.

"30 Rock," of late, has become a show propelled by three or four outstanding one-liners in otherwise mediocre episodes... Those two lines alone were worth 22 minutes of my life.

One of the sharpest TV shows, Tina Fey's 30 Rock seemed invincible. But Season 4 saw it slump due to uninvolving storylines.

It still bursts with irreverent, wacky, brilliant humor.
October 15, 2009
"Season 4" does little to disappoint and in fact starts the show off on much stronger footing than the first couple episodes of season 3.
October 15, 2009
It's a high-bar set for the remainder of the season, but there's not a doubt in my mind that this series will be hitting it consistently in the weeks ahead.

And hat trick Emmy winner 30 Rock remains the most subversively joyful of the bunch with its blend of cerebral, political and broad humor.
October 15, 2009
The other striking thing about the new season is the acting limitations of its star and creator, Tina Fey.
October 15, 2009
The problem, unfortunately, is that it's been a while since 30 Rock has clicked consistently.
October 15, 2009
So far, a mere one episode in, Rock remains the best comedy - though probably dead-even with "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

Welcome back, 30 Rock. Even in a season of wonderful sitcoms - trend story alert! - you get it done.

October 15, 2009
In mocking popular (populist?) taste, Tina Fey and friends bit a hand that isn't even feeding them. What a racket.
October 15, 2009
The bad news for 30 Rock might be that like Murphy Brown in the 1990s -- the show's most golden moments might actually be behind it.
October 15, 2009
If something felt slightly off with Season Four of 30 Rock, you weren't the only one to notice.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

30 Rock, meanwhile, finished an uneven but mostly rewarding fourth season by throwing itself wholeheartedly into romantic dilemmas.
