Trivia
Alec Baldwin won the SAG Award for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series every year since the show's inception until 2013, a feat held by no other actor in either drama or comedy. In addition he won another one in 2009 as part of the cast. He was also nominated for the last time in 2014, but fail to win that time, probably because the show ended on January 2013.

The same year that "30 Rock" started airing, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006), another show set behind the scenes of a fictional _"Saturday Night Live" (1975)_ (qb)-type show, also premiered. Even though there were many differences between them (including "30 Rock" being a half-hour sitcom while "Studio 60" was an hour-long drama), many critics compared the two shows and engaged in speculation about which one would survive. "Studio 60" was canceled after one season, and creator Aaron Sorkin and former regular Nate Corddry both went on to guest-star on "30 Rock."

One of the reasons Jane Krakowski was drawn to the series was because it gave her the chance to sing and dance. Sitcoms today don't usually allow for that - this was the first since Ally McBeal (1997).

Q
Why are there posters saying "The Girlie Show"?
A
That's the original title of the show. In the pilot episode, Tracy Jordan is added to the cast of The Girlie Show and displaces Jenna as the star. In the next episode, Jack Donaghy changes the show title to TGS with Tracy Jordan, but some posters reading "The Girlie Show" were obviously left on the walls.
Q
Can we see any episodes of TGS?
A
No, because none have ever been made. A May 2006 press release mentioned that sketches from The Girlie Show would be made available in their entirety on NBC's broadband website, DotComedy.com, but this idea was eventually dropped. Parts of sketches sometimes appear in episodes, including several in episode 3.17, "Cutbacks".
Q
What did the final scene in 'Leap Day' mean?
A
It's a traditional horror movie style last second cheeky scare in much the same manner of 'Carrie', casting 'Leap Day William' as still a benevolent figure but with a slightly sinister side, much like the Halloween Jack-o-Lantern. We're told he lives at the bottom of the Mariana trench so his pike teeth are adapted for the fish he eats, possibly why he encourages Tracey to buy free seafood for everyone.
