’30 Rock’ to end with 2-part finale Thursday

The critically-acclaimed television show 30 Rock will end its seven-season run with a two-part finale on Thursday night.

Last week’s episode saw a slew of changes for the fictional characters inside the very real 30 Rockefeller Plaza building: Kenneth the Page – played by actor Jack McBrayer – gained control of NBC; TGS, the fictional show within a show, was cancelled; and Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon finally became a mother, adopting two children with her husband Criss Cross (James Marsden).

It was a lot of television to squeeze into one half-hour and Thursday’s back-to-back episodes will be no different.

The show has long served as a commentary on television and that will continue on Thursday, when 30 Rock flashes forward one year, showing where the characters have ended up.

There’s a reference to St. Elsewhere, where the entire show was revealed to be a dream; and a final pitch for very familiar new comedy series from Kenneth.

30 Rock airs on Citytv on 8 p.m.
