We discovered something very interesting while on a long-haul flight yesterday. We noticed that while airlines get away with showing violence-packed feature films, or the sexier scenes of other movies, that comedy TV shows also screened while in flight cannot get away with saying the B-word.
That's right; the word "bomb" was bleeped out from a line said by Tina Fey as Liz Lemon, on an old episode of 30 Rock. Did our ears deceive us? Nopebecause a moment later on the show, another character says it, but emerging from Julianne Moore's mouth was a big BLEEP and not "bomb."
Is there any better time of year to visit Rock Center than during the holidays? Tina Fey must not think so since "30 Rock," which usually films in a studio in Long Island City, is venturing out to film scenes at the real 30 Rock today. Right now, Rockefeller Center is pimped out in its Christmas best, the tree is up, the skaters are out and the windows are decorated. For a bird's eye view of all the action, head 70 stories up to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck.
If the hustle and bustle of the city isn't for you, maybe you can check out the new TV drama, "Kings," filming at Tallman Mountain State Park in Rockland County, New York. The park is located on the easterly slope of the Palisades uplands and overlooks the Hudson and Piermont Marsh, which lies between the river and the slope. For outdoorsy types, the park offers hiking trails, cross-country skiing, and scenic picnic areas. Tallman Mountain is located about 18 miles north of NYC on Route 9W.

What, no beehive and glasses? Fresh off her turn as Sarah Palin on "SNL," Tina Fey walks the red carpet before the Emmy Awards ceremony last night in Los Angeles. Fey's series "30 Rock" walked away with best comedy and she and costar Alec Baldwin took home statues for best lead actress and actor, respectively.
Other big winners of the night: "John Adams" (Best Miniseries), which takes place in Revolutionary-era New England, and the New York-set "Mad Men" (Best Drama) for its portrait of the '60s. And Jaunted obsession "The Amazing Race" scooped up its sixth consecutive reality-competition prize.
Biggest losers: All the television shows whose themes Josh Groban mangled, medley-style.
