In the series, Fey portrays the head writer of a fictional sketch comedy series. In 2008, she starred in the comedy film Baby Mama, alongside former SNL co-star Amy Poehler.

Tina Fey says she’ll never host the Emmys

HollywoodNews.com: The Emmy Awards are over, thank goodness. “Mad Men,” “Modern Family,” and “Downton Abbey” won the series awards. But the biggest surprises were Steve Carell inexplicably not being rewarded for “The Office,” Jon Hamm getting shut out for “Mad Men,” and Laura Linney not scoring for “The Big C.” Blech.
At the Governor’s Ball, our Leah Sydney ran into Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Leah asked Tina how she thought Jane Lynch did as host, and whether or not the “30 Rock” star would ever emcee the show herself.
“God, no!” exclaiming Tina, with Amy nodding in assent. “Jane was funny, quick, and clever. But I’d never host. Oh, that’s way too hard. Too much work!” Fey is also not writing a sequel to her current bestselling book. She’s overwhelmed with a new baby and new “30 Rock” episodes.
Steve Buscemi, star of “Boardwalk Empire,” disagrees. At the HBO party at the Pacific Design Center, Buscemi told Leah: “Tina Fey would be fabulous to host the Emmy show. I was sitting with them at the Emmys, I laughed all night with those two.” Now that “BE” has wrapped, Buscemi will direct an episode of “30 Rock” and may be in it, as well. “It’s hard to act and direct. It’s like walking and chewing gum, I can’t do that either.”

Tina Fey is the “Hollywood TV Star of the Week”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: When does Tina Fey find the time to be so creative?
This season of her Emmy-winning NBC sitcom “30 Rock” had a number of milestones. Matt Damon was a regular guest star. The cast did two live performances of the program, and the show recently celebrated its 100th episode.
In her spare time, Fey contributed to Jimmy Fallon’s hilarious “Jersey Floor,” a spoof of the grotesque reality show “Jersey Shore.”

Meanwhile, off camera, Fey penned a bestselling book and announced she’s pregnant with her second child. (Fey’s married to “30 Rock” composer Jeff Richmond.)
Think that will slow her down? Hardly. Fey’s actually hosting “Saturday Night Live” tonight. And that’s why we are proud to announce that the unstoppable Tina Fey is the “Hollywood TV Star of the Week.”

Tina Fey’s “Bossypants” nears top of Amazon bestseller list

By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: Comedienne Tina Fey has shown her talent once again with the success of “Bossypants”, a memoir that released on April 5th. The book is currently ranked #4 on Amazon and has spent 33 days on the Amazon Top 100.
Says Kevin Nguyen’s “Amazon Best Books of the Month” April review of “Bossypants”, “Tina Fey remains universally adored: she embodies the hectic, too-many-things-to-juggle lifestyle we all have, but instead of complaining about it, she can just laugh it off.” The actress-slash-writer-slash-comedienne draws from her experiences not only as a professional but as a mother. Continues, Nguyen, “Some of the funniest chapters feature the differences between male and female comedy writers (“men urinate in cups”), her cruise ship honeymoon (“it’s very Poseidon Adventure”), and advice about breastfeeding (“I had an obligation to my child to pretend to try”). “
A Saturday Night Live writer since the late 1990s and a cast member from 2000 to 2005, Fey left the show for pursuits including the comedy series “30 Rock”, and movies “Date Night” and “Baby Mama”. Fey is also well-known for penning the screenplay for the 2004 film “Mean Girls”, for which a sequel was recently released. She announced her pregnancy on an episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, on which she appeared to promote “Bossypants”—during her upcoming appearance as host on SNL, she will be expecting her second child.

“The Office”‘s New Boss and “30 Rock” Live

hollywoodnews.com: Big news on NBC’s hit comedies The Office and 30 Rock, and their newest Law & Order series from today’s executive session at the Television Critics Association press tour. Angela Bromstad, President of Primetime Entertainment talked about Steve Carell’s replacement on The Office and a big event for Tina Fey’s comedy.

It’s been known for a few months that this season would be Carell’s last on The Office. Bromstad knew for a while though, so they planned ahead. “Greg Daniels and Paul Lieberstein do have a plan in terms of who is going to replace Michael [Scott],” Bromstad. “So there will be a lot of storylines leading up to that and there will be some mystery as to who that will be.”
Later, Bromstad added that the main issue of replacing Carell will be dealt with creatively on the show. Will Dunder Mifflin promote one of its own or hire somebody new? Likewise, will NBC promote one of the Office stars or bring in new blood. Either way, The Office isn’t going anywhere.
“Would we have ended ER when George Clooney left?” Bromstand postulated. “That would’ve been a shame so this is a tremendous ensemble cast. Like I said, we’ve known about it for some time and planned for it. I would be very sad to be ending the show and I couldn’t go home and face my 14-year-old son if The Office went off the air.”
30 Rock is doing a live episode this season. It’s probably more in Tina Fey and Lorne Michaels’ wheelhouse than filming the weekly episodes. “Tina’s up for it,” Bromstad said. “Coming from Saturday Night Live, Lorne and Tina are very up for it. We’re just doing as much as we can to garner attention for the shows and stay true to them creatively. Tina and Lorne agreed to it and we think it’s a great idea.”
It was NBC’s request for a live show, and there will be the standard delay of a few seconds in case of any FCC issues. Each time zone will get their own live broadcast. “You’ll see an east coast original and a west coast [version].”
NBC announced more comedy guest stars too. “Drew Carey on Community, Kathy Bates returning to The Office and Rob Lowe has joined the cast of Parks and Recreation as a regular.”

’30 Rock’s’ Tina Fey says Emmy nomination is “great news”

HollywoodNews.com: Many television celebrities have something to celebrate tonight and one of those is “30 Rock’s” Tina Fey.
Fey has been nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy for the 62nd Annual Emmy Awards. To express her excitement she stated, “This is great and exciting news. Also, this seems like an appropriate time for me to announce to NBC that I will not be renewing my contract … with my gym,” reports People. She also added saying how grateful they all are, “especially since today is the fifth anniversary of the day NBC forgot to cancel us.”
Once a comedian, always a comedian.
