'30 Rock' live: On the set with Jack McBrayer and Jane Krakowski

Posted on

Right about now, Jack McBrayer is probably knocking back a diet Mountain Dew — his caffeinated beverage of choice, he told EW — to power through tonight’s live 30 Rock episode. At 8:30p.m. ET, the show will be broadcast in real-time for the second time in series history.

When EW caught up with McBrayer and co-star Jane Krakowski earlier this week, the pair said the cast has wanted to have a second live outing ever since wrapping up their first. “It’s so exhilarating,” said Krakowski. “We have such a great group for this. A lot of us have training and a history of working in live productions and theater and improv, and so it was really wonderful that we got to come back.”
