Tonight’s guest stars are Sex and the City’s Cynthia Nixon, who parodies Julianne Moore’s 30 Rock cameo; and Alec Baldwin’s brother William, who plays an actor playing Baldwin/Jack in a TV movie about his abducted wife. As if that weren’t brain-boggling enough, the latter’s mother sashays into the picture and starts making eyes at her son-in-law — or is it his doppelganger she has the hots for? As ever, Tina Fey’s spry script stops it from descending into utter lunacy.

About this programme

14/22. Jack and Liz have creative differences over the Avery Jessup TV movie project. Avery's mother arrives to make sure that the TV movie about her daughter shows her in a good light and Liz fixes her up with the actor playing Jack to keep her away from Jack himself. Cynthia Nixon guest stars, with Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and Mary Steenburgen.
