I think they are such different comedies tho'.
I been watching 30 Rock since the first episode, and at one point I did not think it would last. I was praying that it would find it's style and by the end of the season, it did. IMO.
But if I had to pick one, it would be The Office. sorry Cori.
Kenneth's character has not evolved much.

I find Tina's and Alec's "relationship" one of the best in TV right now. I hope they never hook up. That would ruin it.

I'll just insert Trey Parker/Matt Stone's argument against Family Guy in this case.
The Office is better than 30 Rock as South Park is better than Family Guy for much the same reasons.

Let the bloodshed begin.

If anyone wants to see an episode where Alec's character is amazing, check out the one where he plays Tracy's parents;
YouTube - 30 Rock - Therapy, Jack Style

While 30 Rock likes to throw in pop culture references, I would strongly, strongly disagree that they use them just for the sake of using them like Family Guy. 30 Rock doesn't rely on them.

But if you just genuinely like The Office more, then fine.

My original post came from someone else's comment in The Office thread, so I know there's at least one other person here who thinks 30 Rock is the better show.

that would be me
while I really enjoy the Office and Dwight specifically...I truly laugh more during 30 Rock..It is essentially more my kind of humor

Given that The Office is a watered down clone of another series while 30 Rock has a unique, surreal sensibility that I've never seen before...if we were comparing the shows at their best, say, 30 Rock after Episode 5 to Now and The Office circa Seasons 2-3, it would be a closer match. The Office wins in career value though so I'd list it higher on a ranking of my favorite shows, but if 30 Rock can pull of another season or two at this level, it will easily surpass the other.

I love Steve Martin. I don't care how many in-it-for-the-paycheck movies he does, I still love him.

Last night's episode is exactly the reason why I want to see him do more movies like that.

When's the last time he's done an awesome major comedy like that? Bowfinger? That was 9 years ago.

Man, I love Bowfinger. I even loved Eddie Murphy in it, and I'm not usually a fan of his.
