Image Credit: Ali Goldstein/NBCWith TCA, the networks’ annual press tour for the nation’s TV critics, in full swing, it’s officially time to start impatiently awaiting the return of our favorite shows. Today, NBC announced that Rob Lowe has been promoted to a regular on Parks and Recreation, which is great. But that’s eclipsed by the reveal that 30 Rock will do a live episode from Studio 8H on Oct. 14. (The cast will perform it twice, which makes me wish I was on the West Coast because you know late shows are always looser.) “I can’t imagine a series more suited to do an incredible live episode, thanks to its many cast, writers and producers, who hail from TV’s most renowned live series, SNL,” said Angela Bromstad, NBC’s primetime entertainment president. And that’s not spin. This really should be awesome.

I presume the episode will revolve around a live taping of TGS with Tracy Jordan, the show within the show. What do you need to see happen?
