Tina Fey is a Hollywood sweetheart. She is funny, intelligent, good looking, but not in the too intimidating way. Ever since writing and acting on Saturday Night Live and writing and starring in a film like Mean Girls she has been beloved. But maintaining the high standards she set has been tough. Fey has been a part of dogs like The Invention of Lying, Baby Mama and Beer League. Not until she began 30 Rock in 2006 did she right the good ship Tina Fey once again. The show has won Emmys, SAGs, Peabody and Golden Globes because it is funny and smart in a weird and quirky kind of way. Sit back and enjoy as these are the last twelve episodes.
