Fey Trying to Broaden Appeal

30 Rock is the critics' darling and the show appears ready to move full-steam ahead into its second season.
Not every post can be scar news. Sometimes, I need to mix things up with a little bit of plain ol' Tina Fey news. Here we go...

How does Tina Fey, the mastermind behind the program, hope to avoid a sophomore slump? The easy way out would be to keep things on a dead-even keel, but that's not the strategy. Instead, Fey plans to make a few changes in hopes of keeping the show's core audience while simultaneously expanding its appeal to those who haven't yet come down with a case of 30 Rock Fever.

Remote access (full story here) reports:

"She doesn’t want 30 Rock to be the next Arrested Development (even if in some ways it already is). That is to say, critical acclaim, which she’s got, will mean little if the show gets canceled, which it nearly was at various times last season. So Fey’s cutting down her scripts this season, letting the show breathe a little and continuing to grow as an actor. That recipe should make for an entertaining sophomore season."
