Comcast Cancels 30 Rock

It's official -- NBC's hip comedy 30 Rock will be shooting its final episode in 2012. Details of the show's ending are still being finalized, but it's rumored that Jack Donaghy will be running for Vice President along side a very famous guest star (perhaps Sarah or Bristol Palin). Although the cancellation appears to line up with actor Alec Baldwin's retirement from the show inside sources say the cancellation was largely a result of NBC Universals acquisition by Comcast.


Comcast, lampooned on 30 Rock as "Kabletown," is said to be worried that public perception of it will change from a family cable company to a corporate juggernaut bent on becoming the sole provider of Internet, cable, and phone service through the use of outdated monopoly agreements, intimidation, excessive fees, and bandwidth limits. Comcast CEO Brian Roberts is also said to be furious about his portrayal as a backwater Pennsylvanian yokel. In a board meeting Roberts is said to have condemned 30 Rock as nothing more than "a possum and a pole cat drinking sassafras." Roberts is also said to have defended Comcast's Pennsylvania home as being in a "real, big city" noting the Duck Tour of the city lasts almost 45 minutes.


A replacement show has not yet been announced but it will likely be a reality show or the "Getting to know your Comcast DVR" tutorial. Either way ratings will likely improve as the programming will be more on par with the average American.


Comcast is said to be reviewing all shows on NBC. The company has already said shows on a short list too be canceled were: 30 Rock, Community, Minute to Win It, America's Got Talent, and Chuck.
Comcast- what- are you going to do- leave us for Verizon? Everyone knows they are a bunch of douches with contracts- face it bub- you got no choice so pay up.

    Heres what I found on the DirectTV website about Friday Night Lights .DIRECTV IS TURNING ON FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTSThis fall, see all-new epsdeios of Friday Night Lights—uncut and commercial-free—only on DIRECTV, months before they air on NBC in 2009. Don't miss an episode of this award-winning drama series.Tune in to The 101ae Network Wednesdays, 9pm, beginning October 1.Re-airs Fridays at 9pm. Presented by Vaseline Wolverine.I know this doesn't answer your question about watching online but it does say that in 2009 NBC will be airing FNLs .I'm a HUGE fan of this show too ..and I've been thinking more and more about switching from Time Warner Cable (very similar to Comcast) to a satelite company b/c TWC keeps messing with all the channels there. I just found out last night that as of October 2nd, TWC will no longer carry The CW I watch enough shows on The CW to justify it to myself to switch ..if I end up with DirectTV I won't have to wait for FNLs but if I don't switch, I will have to wait!I can't wait to find out whats going to happen between Tyra and Landry ..

    It won't be an easy feat. The trust is broken, that's sohnemitg that might be repaired in time, or not.One thing the wife has to do is stop blaming herself for her husband straying. Many of us do that. There must be a reason why he chose someone else over his own wife! The wife's self esteem can suffer during this time. She has to remember, she was not the one who cheated he was! Then after the denial and sadness has subsided, the anger sets in! It's a whole roller coaster of emotions that can hit at any time! Keep the communication open and tell him exactly what you feel. Don't hold anything back! It's possible to love him, and hate him all at the same time! This won't be an easy road. Sometimes counseling helps to get those feelings out in the open. If 2 people want to get past an affair it can happen. It will take time to rebuild trust and self esteem, but it can happen if both partners really want to save the relationship. Be true to yourself though, if you're staying because of false hopes, money, or because it would be better for the kids .rethink it. You deserve to be in a happy relationship and if you don't think that will be possible, or if your heart isn't into reconciliation end it. Life is short, make sure you stay for all the right reasons. Those reasons are the relationship between you and your husband and what it means to you. Hope this helps

    my wife had an affair a long time ago..during our soecnd year of marriage ..we have now been married for 12 years the pain never goes away i can tell you that much .the only way in making the marriage work is by putting it in the back of your head .your never going to forget about it .i know the pain your going through .i too would throw the hurtful remarks at her trying to make her hurt as much as i did i would even think about what i could do to bring upon the same pain she bestowed upon me but in the end you have to be the better person ..if you love him that much then you will make it work you will stop letting it get to you and you will forgive him your marriage will not work if you dont forgive .you have to learn to have trust in him..again how can it work if you can't trust him..you can't live a life thinking what if all the time .its a hard process but its doable if your willing to work at it i hope the best for you ..feel free to email me i know what your going through .its a tough road to recovery and thats just what it is recovery from a painful heart ache ..but you can get through it http://qmctog.com [url=http://njiqkrgyg.com]njiqkrgyg[/url] [link=http://acwcqrim.com]acwcqrim[/link]
