30 Rock: A Guide to Farewell Tributes

30 Rock farewellTonight, NBC is airing the last episode of 30 Rock. The show’s ratings have declined quite a bit over the years so it’s certainly not a surprise that it’s ending. Still seven seasons and 139 episodes is an impressive achievement, particularly in a climate when so few shows make it past their first season.

There’s been a fair amount of farewell tributes to 30 Rock. Here’s a sampling of the best:
