I could write a long-winded post expressing my concern about how 30 Rock‘s recent surge of big-name guest stars (Jennifer Aniston! Matthew Broderick! Oprah!) might eat away at screentime for members of its brilliant ensemble cast — Jane Krakowski, Tracy Morgan, Maulik Pancholy, and Scott Adsit, to name a few — but my colleague Dalton Ross’ email pretty much sums up my feelings on Tina Fey’s great sitcom in just two sentences.

There is a dangerous amount of stunt casting going on with this show. Does it really want to be the new Will & Grace?
