NBC Justifies Why I Love NBC Part 2...

Today I stumbled across some odd little animated web series that the writers of 3o Rock appear to be involved in. To be really honest with you, I'm not sure what is going on here. Somehow they roped Alec Baldwin into playing a cartoon version of Jack Donaghy, and in their Super Bowl episode, Madonna can no longer perform at half-time so Jack turns to some old friends (including past 30 Rock co-worker Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino) to step in. But there's a catch. NBC has no money and can not only afford to pay the performers but can't afford to buy rights to music, either, so his trio has to perform "classic" NBC theme songs. And that's where it gets genius. Because on the list are Saved by the Bell, Knight Rider, and freakin' Passions!
