30 Reasons I'm Going To Miss 30 Rock

I’m starting to accept that tonight really is the end of 30 Rock. That after tonight’s series finale, there will be no more Liz Lemon, Jack Donaghy, Jenna Maroney and Tracy Jordan.

Just look at Lorelai on Gilmore Girls or The Wire’s Kima or take your pick of the four besties mini-genre: Sex and the City, Golden Girls, or Designing Women.
