30 Rock is an American comedy television series that ran on NBC from October 11, 2006, to January 31, 2013. Created by Tina Fey, the series follows the lives of the head writer of TGS with Tracy Jordan (TGS), Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), the other staff members of TGS, and their network executive, Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin). A total of 138 episodes of 30 Rock were produced and aired over seven seasons.

30 Rock was a critical success, winning several major awards (including Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2007, 2008, and 2009), and achieving the top ranking on many critics' year-end best of 2006 and 2007 lists.[1] On July 14, 2009, the series was nominated for 22 Primetime Emmy Awards, the most in a single year for a comedy series.[2] Despite the acclaim, the series struggled in the ratings throughout its run.[3]
