30 Rocked

Funniest show of the year, again, was 30 Rock. Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy made me glad the writers' strike ended. From their constant lampooning of politics to their witty repartee, Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin are a comedy dream team. They switch from silly to sly on a dime and neither shies away from a sight-gag or slapstick when needed. And they've found the perfect guest-star foil for Lemon in Dean Winters and his Dennis Duffy. One second he's charming Lemon's socks off by calling her "Dummy" and berating her coworkers and the next he's trying to throw her under a subway, but Winters somehow gives the unshakable loser just enough glint in the eye and that lovable edge.

If you didn't watch this season, do yourself a favor and catch up.
