Tina Fey’s New Comedy More Like ‘Mary Tyler Moore’ Than ‘SNL’

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Tina Fey’s new comedy, 30 Rock, is supposedly a sitcom based on her nine years at Saturday Night Live, but she feels it’s actually closer to The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

Fey says 30 Rock is following that show’s formula by having her as “a straight woman surrounded by crazies.”

Plus, there’s another similarity: “We won’t show the skits on the fictional show, just like they never showed the news.”

30 Rock, which also stars Alec Baldwin and Jane Krakowski, debuts October 11.
