This PopSugar Rush is dedicated to tonight's 30 Rock wedding of the season for Tina Fey's unlucky-in-love comedic heroine and her boyfriend of the past two seasons, Criss Chross, played by James Marsden. It's also the perfect time to revisit Liz's "what the what" list of famous former flames including Matt Damon, Jon Hamm, James Franco, and more!
Last night 30 Rock returned with a freshly married Jack Donaghy. For his second wedding, he wanted a "five-minute ceremony surrounded by a giant party" on the fictional French island St. Esclavage. But not even Jack could make this wedding go off without a hitch, so here are five definite don'ts (and spoilers!).
- Don't use an uncoordinated flower girl. Nobody wants to see a 4-year-old who can't evenly distribute petals.
- Don't let an exiled French admiral and defrocked minister who can't speak a word of English perform the ceremony. Oui?
- Don't use a woman, particularly Liz Lemon, if you must make a last-minute best man switch.
- If you must switch the best man for an OK-ish woman, ensure she is not wearing a white mosquito veil while the bride wears a black cocktail dress and no veil.
- Don't ever sign papers you don't understand.
Follow these five steps, and with any luck, you'll marry the right person. But for now, congratulations Mrs. Elizabeth Lemon Donaghy!
This week marks the momentous occasion of 30 Rock's first live episode, and aside from the unpredictable, outrageous highlights we're bound to see, there's also a host of guest stars who'll be stopping by. Two of them include Jon Hamm and Matt Damon, a pair of Liz Lemon's love interests. Liz has had a pretty active dating life over the course of the show's five seasons, but somehow she's still ends up single. Here's why: each of her suitors seems to have a hilarious, (and sometimes horrifying) dealbreaker. Watch this video for clips of her past boyfriends — there's a solid lesson each man can teach us for what not to look for in a mate!
Liz Lemon has dated an eclectic group of guys over five seasons of 30 Rock. Unfortunately, the relationship advice she has to offer mostly covers what not to do. To get ready for tomorrow's live episode of 30 Rock — which will bring back Jon Hamm as Liz's former fling and Matt Damon as her current guy — we made this dating PSA based on her boyfriends' ridiculous dealbreakers. If a man you meet resembles any of these former Liz Lemon love interests, remember: that's a dealbreaker, ladies!
Now she's basking in a postcoital glow, the one achieved through hotel sex with a man who spends 20 hours a week 30,000 feet in the air. Her new confidence and ambitious wardrobe choices have construction workers, corner bums, and TGS editors turning heads.
The message? "When it rains, it pours." In other words, men come in droves once you're off the market. But is it true? Or, is it just another Lizism walking the line between good satire and bad stereotypes?
Poor Liz Lemon. On last night's 30 Rock, she not only has to attend the wedding of the only normal man she's ever dated, she has to give a reading. So she goes on a desperate search for a date, revisiting her old flames. Along the way, she's reunited with Wesley, who wants to be her "settling soul mate," and invites him to be her date:
Wesley's still selling himself as husband material, pointing out that his only downside is that Liz actually hates him. Before the ceremony even starts, she goes in search of another date, but it doesn't turn out well. See what happens.
For Valentine's Day, some of Liz's old flames are coming back to haunt her on 30 Rock. She hasn't had many, but they do run the spectrum. Check out the loves of Liz Lemon's past.
30 Rock's Liz Lemon got an iPhone at the start of the 2008 season, and it was just the begging of Apple love for the show, which is sponsored by the company. In fact, Apple even used clips from the funny sitcom to show off the new Find My iPhone feature at June's WWDC, so we know the love is mutual. What type of tech do we expect — and hope — geeky gal Liz will rock this season? Find out.

Is being a lady of leisure totally luxurious or dangerously overrated? On this week's episode of 30 Rock, Liz Lemon gets a taste of the sweet life when she's temporarily suspended from her job and starts running with a crowd of wealthy, nonworking women who occupy themselves with afternoon cocktails, shopping, massages, yoga, and refreshingly regular bathroom breaks. But Liz soon learns that all that pleasure can soon lead to pain.
In this, her second look from the episode, Liz Lemon wears an outfit appropriate for both work and the cold New York weather. She bundles up in a coat from Banana Republic, which hides her multi-colored cardigan, James Perse tee, and James jeans. While you're shopping, the Banana Republic bag is pretty covetable too.
