'30 Rock' Staging Second Live Episode in April
30 Rock is tackling another live episode.
The network confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that the series will go live again for the Thursday, April 26 episode.
Star Alec Baldwin, who recently signed on for a seventh season of the NBC comedy should it be picked up, broke the news during a Wednesday interview with Extra.
30 Rock previously staged two live outings -- one for the east coast and another for the west coast on October 14. The episode brought in 6.7 million viewers and a 3.1 rating among adults 18-49, highs it has not hit since.
The first live show taped from Saturday Night Live's Studio 8-H and welcomed guest appearances from Jon Hamm, Matt Damon, Bill Hader and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. It also baited fans with slight differences between the broadcasts.
