TV Junkie: '30 Rock' Goes Live Tonight + More News & Picks for Tonight

30rockcast-NBC.jpg
Tonight the cast of NBC's "30 Rock" (8:30pm) will do their first of several planned live broadcasts. We wonder how different the West coast broadcast will be from the earlier East coast run - NBC has said that they will post both once they have aired tonight.

Please check out our interview with "CSI" creator Anthony Zuiker posted earlier today. There will be an extremely special multi-platform crossover episode of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" tonight (8:55pm on CBS). Even if you're not a fan-person of the show, his ideas are very interesting.

We might just miss the first 5 minutes of "CSI" to finish watching the LIVE broadcast of NBC's "30 Rock" (8:30pm). The cast will do the show twice, once for the East Coast/Central and once for the West Coast. It's ambitious but not like it hasn't been done before: "Scrubs" and "ER" both did it, plus some others. But we're talking about old pros here like Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan who did this weekly for years on "SNL". What will be interesting is to see how the rest of the cast handles the experience, from Alec Baldwin to guest star Matt Damon. What's encouraging is that Fey and the producers plan to do more of these. Check out the rehearsal vid at the end of this post.There is always something exciting about a live show, so we're looking forward to this.
