  • 30 Rock had several memorable guest appearances this year but I feel Rip Torn's performances as the over the top GE executive was the best. He established the character as the perfect foil to Adam Baldwin's Jack Donaghy and his mannerisms fit the crazy coporate world portrayed on the show really well.--The-jam 21:48, 16 January 2008 (EST)

  • It was fun to see Leslie Nielsen on tv again, since the last time I saw him was in 1982 on Police Squad!. Nielsen's portrayal of Caldo Vasco is a great portrayal of an actual "Ordinary Asshole", (wich is also one of my favorite episodes of Robson Arms). I agree with the creators of the show, that anyone who finds Leslie Nielsen not funny, is an idiot.
