On "Liz Lemoning"

I totally agree with Matt Yglesias here, and one of my many reasons for disliking "30 Rock" is that it treats the obviously gorgeous Tina Fey character like she's ugly- and somehow uses this for humor. Same with Julia Louis-Dreyfus on "Old Christine," Debra Messing when "Will and Grace" was on, and Rachel from "Glee." Who is laughing at these jokes exactly?

I am, Steve. I am.

Tina Fey isn't ugly, but she's clearly not the prettiest woman on the show.

The whole Liz plot-lines kind of suck in 30Rock - but the show is carried by the writing, and particular by Tracy Morgan.

Tracy's wife "you're an idiot"
Tracy "Yeah, we're just lucky people laugh when I say things"

LOL funny!
