Tina Fey draws on her SNL experience for a sitcom about a sketch comedy writer, a half-insane star (Tracy Morgan), and a megalomaniacal boss (Alec Baldwin). We know what you're thinking: where the hell does she come up with this stuff?

30 Rock premiered the same season as Aaron Sorkin's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, another roman a clef about SNL. Only one of them made it out alive. *sad trombone* Sorkin.
