TV Preview

Liz Lemon, the lead character in Tina Fey's new NBC sitcom 30 Rock, is Mary Richards in television hell.

The manic energy and high-spirited fun of this backstage romp comes from her struggle as a head TV writer with two on-the-job devils - a new network boss who defines corporate "suit" (Alec Baldwin) and a new leading man who admits to having multiple "mental health issues" (Tracy Morgan). The result is one of the zaniest - and most savvy - workplace comedies in years.

On TV 30 Rock airs at 8 tonight on WBAL (Channel 11).
