What's On: 30 Rock Restages ConanGate with Janitors
Earlier this month while promoting Date Night overseas, Tina Fey spilled the beans on an upcoming 30 Rock episode that would boldly parody the very late night disaster that shook 30 Rock's network just months before. Tonight, Fey & Co. deliver with that eagerly awaited episode "Khonani" as well as a bonus installment at 8:30 PM. An hour of new 30 Rock should counteract everything unfunny happening on tonight's Marriage Ref, right?
30 Rock [8:30 PM, NBC]
In the first episode, "Lee Marvin vs. Derek Jeter," Jack (Alec Baldwin) is forced to choose between his old school Boston sweetheart Nancy Donovan (Julianne Moore) and conservative network anchor Avery Jessup (Elizabeth Banks). Meanwhile, Liz (Tina Fey) agrees to attend a singles event with Jenna (Jane Krakowski) while a bigoted comment causes tension in the office. At 9:30 in "Knonani," Jack must choose again, between two of his hardest working janitors while Kenneth (Jack McBrayer) tries to help Tracy (Tracy Morgan) become a better husband.
Project Runway [10 PM, Lifetime]
Last week you watched as Tim Gunn visited the homes of the final four remaining contestants and bounced on a backyard trampoline for the very first time. Tonight, season seven comes to a close with either Emilio, Seth Aaron or Mila taking home the $100,000. Don't forget to join Movieline tomorrow for Louis Virtel's faithful analysis.
Fugitive Chronicles [10 PM, A&E]
If you've always fantasized about life on the lam but was not sure about how to evade the police, A&E has your back. This hour-long docu-drama profiles a different runaway each week with the help of gritty reenactments and narratives recreated from real testimony, not to mention taped interviews with law enforcement officials. Tonight's installment tells the tale of the mastermind behind an insurance scam who dodged cops for three years after being involved in a murder. Have a pen and pencil handy.
Shallow Hal [10:30 PM, AMC]
This Farrelly brother film may not have been nominated for any awards (aside from Teen Choice, but those don't really count) but its 2001 release marks a special time in Gwyneth Paltrow's life. The period before she started saying bizarre things to women's magazines like "Some days I feel like everyone in my world has plugged themselves into my kidneys. I'm so tired." Enjoy Gwyneth Paltrow as a 300-pound woman romancing Jack Black and remember back to those simpler, more self-aware times.
