TV's Top 50 Showrunners 2010
Only Jack Donaghy would care that the show ranked 86th among primetime broadcast shows last season. The kudos keep coming, including 15 Emmy nominations this year. Fey and Carlock began collaborating on "Saturday Night Live" and this season will return to the format with two live broadcasts (one for each coast) on Oct. 14.
Favorite TV Moment: In college, Fey loved Comedy Central's "Short Attention Span Theater."
Big Break: Carlock was hired by Robert Smigel and Louis CK on "The Dana Carvey Show" alongside Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Dave Chappelle. "Seeing it not work and get canceled in spite of all that talent -- that was my big break," he says. "A splash of cold water on my face."
