NBC has officially announced that Oprah Winfrey will guest-star in the second episode of this upcoming season's '30 Rock.' The episode is scheduled to air Thursday, November 6 at 9:30 PM ET/PT on NBC.
"Oprah is very funny in the episode and we are beyond grateful to have her. Also, I would like to announce that we are officially best friends," said Tina Fey, creator, executive producer and star of "30 Rock."
We are very excited here at TheTwoCents to share this news with our readers because we feel very much apart of all the buzz that led up to Oprah finally making it to '30 Rock.' In late March, we had an opportunity to speak with Tina Fey prior to the return of the show after the writers' strike. We asked Tina who she would like to guest-star on the show. Tina's response:
"I still want Oprah to play my best friend. I want to spend time with Oprah and I don’t know what I need to do to make that happen."
This quote headlined all of the entertainment media outlets for days following. We felt pretty good about ourselves here at TTC. Today, we feel even more accomplished.
