Oprah To Guest Star on 30 Rock, Our Lives Complete

By Jacy Wojcik in Arts & Entertainment on Sep 4, 2008 8:02PM

Yes, our Thursday night sitcom dreams might come true. Oprah is in final talks to guest star on NBC's 30 Rock this fall. Rumor has it that she is slated to appear as herself in the season's second episode to air November 6. Further speculation notes that she will be playing all her scenes opposite Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) and it that her story would also play into a feud between Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) and Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski). After Tracy Jordan hosted the Source Awards as Oprah, and Liz Lemon declared Oprah to be her religious adviser (above), we hoped it was only a matter of time before Ms. Winfrey herself made an appearance.

In other 30 Rock guest star news, Will Arnett will return as Jack Donaghy's nemesis, Devin Banks, on the season premiere and Jennifer Aniston take the role as Liz Lemon's ex-roommate later in the season.

30 Rock premieres on Thursday, October 30 at 8:30 p.m,, finally injecting smart humor into our lives after a summer of garbage programming. [Trib]
