"30 Rock" - we love Tina Fey, but pretty self-indulgent stuff (kinda like if I launched a comedy about a mid-western video producer who was also a serial commentator on MediaPost - maybe funny to me...) and finally "Outsourced" - the only thing worse would be a show entitled "You're Fired and We're Foreclosing on your House". Big laughs here. Uh-huh. We used to run "Quincy" in the mid 80's at 10pm against local news and get better numbers than these. Yow.
