When selecting television bits to feature in this column, I’m
constantly trying to balance out all the funny programs I love with
dramas and other options. To me, comedy is like pizza — whether it’s
simple or sophisticated, cheesy or over-the-top, there’s something for
everyone and it’s usually pretty good.
If I had to pick fictional television characters to represent 2000s-era humans for a future generation, 30 Rock’s
Liz Lemon would be my No. 1. Tina Fey’s character, while over the top,
really represents the average snack food-loving workaholic.
