Tv Season Info

The sixth season of the sidesplitting sitcom, which is set backstage at a "Saturday Night Live"-like sketch-comedy TV series, features an array of wackiness, its second live episode ("Live From Studio 6H") and such guest stars as Kelsey Grammer, Ken Howard, Patti LuPone, Mary Steenburgen and Susan Sarandon. Among the stories: Jenna (Jane Krakowski) gains fame as a hateful celebrity judge on a talent show for kids; Liz (Tina Fey) works damage control for Tracy (Tracy Morgan) after he's caught on camera saying crude things; Jack (Alec Baldwin) cuts the page program to impress his corporate boss and, after getting mugged, decides to run for mayor; and Liz pens a TV-movie script about Avery (Elizabeth Banks). Through the season, too, Liz grapples with her relationship with new boyfriend Criss (James Marsden).

Critic Reviews for 30 Rock Season 6

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

30 Rock is usually more inclusive, but this back half of the season has mostly dispatched with the supporting writer characters in favor of more -- dare I say it -- conventional plot lines.

Outside of a few stray moments, I didn't enjoy the premiere very much.

In short, much like Season Five, 30 Rock has found its groove, and it's continuing to ride it, flaws and all.

Jan 12, 2012 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

This could be 30 Rock's funniest season yet.

Nov 1, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

So: funny funny, and full of well-chosen guest appearances and cameos. But above all there was a sweetness to the episode.

Maybe there's a whole lot of life-or at least one more really solid season-left in these characters after all.

As long as Liz's "hell" remains funny, we'll watch it, and for the most part, 30 Rock has managed to sustain its laughs.
