"30 rock" which look at life behind the scene of a SNL-type show, she will be the star in it and is also a Writer and executive producer of this half-hour show that will debut on Oct.11

she told Television Critics Association's summer meeting Saturday in LA, I'm out of the fake news business now", "I'm going to go nuts," she said Saturday. "I do not understand the train that is about to hit me. We're trying to get as much done in the writers' room now before we start and I tried to gather a staff of writers who are experienced so they can proceed when I'm on the set."

She also said on the tonight show on friday "This is the big leap I'm making, it's a show about working at a late-night comedy show", "I'm very creative."

and it you want to see a trailer for the show you can
click here we wish like to show it on from you tube but i am affied NBC will clam the copyright Infringment.

most people did not notice but i did on the season finaly off SNL on may 20th, when tina mention about Britney Spears getting haveing a second baby and it sort of match of what she prediced when she gave Biritney some advice so they pull a old clip from 2000 or 2001 wend she give her some advice on here futher.

also on that same weekend update on the season Finaly near the end they have a song near the end(i can remember off hand) and they interduce all the cather she wrote, which i thought was perfict.

Also near the end of the very same show when the cast join guest Kevin Spacey and musicial guest Nelly frttado, she wore a t-shirt that simply say "Thanks You", you must have know she was read to move on.

But she did leave some histroy with the show, she was name the first female head writer in the show 31 year histroy in 1999, then In 2000 she began to co-anchors the mid show news segment Weekend Update with then cast member Jimmy Fallon they did the segment so well for four season untill Fallon said it was his last show at the end of the 2003-04 season, she then co-anchor with the always wonderful to watch Amy Poehler(who also did the Upright Citizens Brigade on Comedy Central)it was the first time the weekend update was anchor by two women.

She did miss a one show after she gave brith to a baby girl back in 2005 , she leave the show as the Longest serving Weekend Update anchor with 118 show over 6 season, 7 show better than Dennis Miller (Longest serving male Weekend Update anchor) 111 shows over 6 season from 1985 to 1991.

Now the big question begin what will happen to weekend update will amy poheler do i alone or will she have someone else or will it be a diffent anchor of a diffend pair of co-anchor, Lorne Michaels, executive producer of "SNL" and "30 Rock" said in a statement that various individuals and duos would be tested in September to decide who will replace Fey on the "Weekend Update" segment before the new SNL season be gin in october.

or there that what if question: What if the show "30 rock" dont catch on fire and it became a dud: Conan O'Brien who host Late Night with Conan O'Brien. is scheduled to take over for Jay Leno as host of The Tonight Show in 2009, and 2009 is three years too far to name a replacement, but one of the many names that have been name as a replacement is Tina Fey.

But Tina Fey is not the only one that is leaving SNL it was also learn late saturday night that her cast mate Rachel Dratch is also leaveing the show because she also on "30 Rock" as well and she starting out on her movie carred she was in the movie "Click" this summer, and it countued a friendship that started at the second City at the e.t.c. theaher and they join the likes of dozen and dozen and dozen if i have time i would put every name on here but here a
link to there alum list
but some include Dan Aykroyd,John Candy,Gilda Radner,Mike Myers, and Stephen Colbert
and some of the famous alum for the detroit second city mostly the downtown venve (1993-2003)were Jerry C. Minor,Nancy Hayden,Joshua Funk,Nyima Funk,Rico Bruce Wade,Chad Krueger,Mary Jane Pories,Marc Warzecha,Jeff Fritz,Topher Owen,and my fave at the second downtown were
Larry Joe Campbell,Margaret Exner, Keegan-Michael Key,Marc Evan Jackson,Antoine McKay,Maribeth Monroe,and the late Eric Black.

Not only Pretty Funny ladies are leaving popuarl TV shows but Cool quite Swedish bands lose nice lead singer, That what have happen to the Lead singer of The Concretes after it was annouced the founding member Victoria Bergsman have left6 the band to lanch a solo career.

The band will continue playing together and are currently drafting songs for a new album. They performed without Bergsman at the Summercase Festival in Spain. They apologise to fans who were hoping to see them perform together.

Victoria Bergsman was an original member of the The Concretes, forming the band with Lisa Milberg (drums / vocals) and Maria Eriksson (guitar / vocals) in Stockholm in 1995. Since that time the band have released two albums, the eponymous debut from 2004 featuring the singles "You Can't Hurry Love", "Say Something New" and "Warm Night"; and this year's "In Colour". The Concretes' performance of recent single "On The Radio" on the last series of the Jonathan Ross TV Show is the last time the band will have played together prior to Bergsman's departure.

Anyway... Life goes on. We are working on new stuff and so is Victoria. We wish her the best of luck.
