’30 Rock’ to Host TV’s Most Unlikely Wedding


Plenty of TV shows pack their final seasons with major life events — deaths, births, weddings, the revelation that the show was a fiction even within the fictional world of the show and the main character’s beloved husband has long been dead (sorry, Roseanne, still haven’t forgiven you for that one). Even so, here’s something we weren’t expecting to see in the last year of 30 Rock: Liz Lemon is getting married!

The Associated Press reports that the November 29th episode will find one of TV’s most romantically challenged characters tying the knot with her beau, James Marden’s wide-eyed, unfortunately named Criss Chross. We imagine Jack Donaghy will lose some sleep over this union, and we can’t say we don’t share some of his reservations about it (not to mention the mere idea of Liz Lemon mating for life). But we’re also curious to see what a sitcom that’s so great at ripping into sitcom tropes will do with the well-worn clichés of the Very Special Wedding Episode.
