Hey hipsters, did you catch the "30 Rock" season finale last night? If you didn't, be happy and secure in knowing that NBC has formatted it (along with "The Office") for streaming on your iPhone - they're not waiting for Apple on this one.

It looks like a lot is on TV but it's slim pickins - shockingly no decent oldie movie selections on TCM this weekend.
