30 Rock

March 23, 2012 by staff 

30 Rock, “30 Rock” is going live again.  NBC says the comedy series will air a live episode April 26. This will be the second live outing for the New York-based show, which is normally a single-camera filmed production. In October 2010, “30 Rock” aired a live episode originating from NBC’s Studio 8H, home of “Saturday Night Live.”

No details were available on the upcoming episode.  The award-winning series is in its sixth season. It stars Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan.  Mitt Romney is heading to Jay Leno’s stage.   NBC says the Republican presidential candidate will be the lead guest on the “Tonight Show” on Tuesday — his first stop during the 2012 presidential season.

He’s been a Leno guest three times in the past, but it will be his first appearance on the show since 2010.

News Corp.’s Twentieth Century Fox Film unit was sued by a British company claiming its “Glee” television series may be confused with U.K. comedy events using the same name.

The trademark-infringement claim was brought by Comic Enterprises Ltd., which operates the Glee Club comedy venues in Cardiff, Oxford and Nottingham, which began operating in 1994. The dispute was referred to a higher London court by a patent judge today.

The owner of Comic Enterprises claims the title of the U.S. series about a high school music club “led to clear confusion between his business and the program,” Judge Colin Birss said.

The claim for an injunction would have “catastrophic consequences” for Fox if successful and should be decided in a higher court even if it means extra costs, Birss said in a written ruling.

David Stone, a lawyer for Fox, declined to comment when contacted by phone.
