Other options for the title of this post include, "30 Rock to Comedy Central: I Want to Go to There," and "Comedy Central: Me Want Food, and by Food, I Mean the Syndication Rights to 30 Rock." No matter how you title it though, the point is Comedy Central is going to start airing 30 Rock in 2011!
David Bernath, Comedy Central's senior veep of programming, said the cabler pursued "30 Rock" aggressively because it's a good fit with the Comedy Central aud, and because web execs are confident that the series' aud will only grow in the next two years.
"Pound for pound, this is one of the funniest shows on TV. The DNA of the show is fabulous," Bernath said. "I really believe its biggest and broadest days are still ahead of it on NBC."
I'm only disappointed that we have to wait until 2011. We're going to have our hands pretty full fighting off the robot rebellion and colonizing the Sun by then. Hopefully we'll still be able to carve out a little time for some top-notch TV.
