"My favorite way to kill time between takes this season was working on 'Bossypants,'" says Fey of her best-selling collection of humor essays. "Next year, I will go back to online shopping and reading Dlisted.com."

Cast and crew from NBC’s 30 Rock gave a young fan what she deemed the “best night” of her life Wednesday.

30 Rock actors Tina Fey, Jack McBrayer and Grizz Chapman appeared on the Manhattan public access television program The Chris Gethard Show to offer encouragement to a 16-year-old fan, who aspires to work in the entertainment industry.

The girl, named Alyssa, has been a regular caller on the show, but this was the first time she appeared on set, reports Mediaite.

Alyssa was surprised by a number of guests, including Saturday Night Live star Seth Meyers, Chuck actor Zachary Levi, musician Ted Leo, and more. 30 Rock writer Kay Cannon introduced a video clip Fey recorded from the 30 Rock set for Alyssa.

“I’m sorry I couldn’t be there tonight, but I go to bed at nine,” Fey joked in the video.

Fey gave a tour of her character Liz Lemon’s office, and had Cannon give Alyssa a copy of Women’s Glib, a beaten up book Fey said had been a prop on Lemon’s desk since the show's inception.
