"60" INTO "30" WON'T GO

Over in the blog for Alan Sepinwall, the TV critic for the Star-Ledger of New Jersey, a few of his readers dabbled in wish-craft in his latest post about 'Studio 60':

I agree, though, that Jack is the one thing worth saving. In a perfect world, he would get a transfer to 30 Rock.

I've been thinking about that too. They should totally do that, have Webber play the same character, and be the new rival of Jack Donaghey (sp) (assuming Baldwin comes back). "Jack vs. Jack." Maybe GE hires Jack Rudolph away from NBS to run GE's wayward microwave division.

Nah, I wouldn't want Studio 60 existing in the same TV universe as 30 Rock. I'd rather have Webber playing [a] similar, more broadly drawn character with a different name on 30 Rock.

For my own part, I agree that Webber's work as Jack Rudolph has given us a richly layered character who's a rainbow of grey. And as I watch Matthew Perry's work, equally as talented, I suddenly got this idea that I would love to see him appear as... a Time Lord on 'Doctor Who'.

Maybe it's the sneakers.

But there's something about his over-charged persona that makes me wish to see him go head to head with David Tennant as the Doctor.

Why not a Gallifreyan with an American accent? And how about one with a Canadian accent? Say, Paul Gross of 'Due South' and 'Slings & Arrows'? Just as manic and over-charged......

Just sayin', is all....

I've been hoping for 30 Rock to reference Studio 60, but I figure most of those opportunities will die with the cancellation of Sorkin's show. I'm one of the few who hasn't dumped on that show, and I'd love for it to have more connections in Toobworld, even if that just means having someone on the NBC sitcom refer to "Didn't they try that sketch on NBS?"
