Tonight’s episode, during a very interesting week for politics, is scheduled to include some very familiar politicians: Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosi.

This show isn’t good, really, but tonight’s guest-star turn is sort of noteworthy. It’s Janet Montgomery, making her third appearance in as many years as Princess Mithian. But since her most recent appearance, the British actress starred in an American TV series, sporting a very American accent, on the deservedly short-lived CBS drama Made in Jersey.

This penultimate episode of 30 Rock has Liz (Tina Fey) reeling after the news that her series – TGS, the show-within-a-show on this show – has been canceled. She may or may not handle it well, but we don’t have to worry about Fey. After eight years in late-night TV on Saturday Night Live and seven years in prime time on 30 Rock, the woman deserves a break. And lots of applause.

This 1942 comedy, one of the very best of the Bob Hope-Bing Crosby road pictures, is a great place to begin if you’ve yet to see one of these. Be prepared for a very modern-feeling, fourth-wall-breaking romp. This time out, Hope and Crosby play stowaways who end up in a desert city, competing for the attention and love of a gorgeous princess. And that princess is played by Dorothy Lamour, so she’s worth the effort. Also co-starring: Anthony Quinn.

SERIES RETURN: After a post-holiday hiatus, this series returns with a new episode – one that’s built not around a music competition, but about the school’s Sadie Hawkins dance. Among the musical selections in this episode: “No Scrubs” and “Baby Got Back.” Make of that what you will.

In this new episode, the voice of a new character, playing an old, and very competitive, friend of Archer’s, may sound familiar. That’s because it is. The voice is that of guest star Timothy Olyphant, from Deadwood and the current Justified, taking time out to have fun as a fellow secret agent.

Every night for years, almost without fail, Jimmy Kimmel has ended his show by apologizing to Matt Damon for being bumped – a running gag so long, and so effective, it’s a marathon-running gag. And tonight, now that Kimmel has moved to 11:35 p.m. ET, Damon finally has been booked on the show officially. He’s appeared in viral videos for the show, and appeared in other playful cameos, but this makes it official. Unless the monologue runs long, and Kimmel bumps him.
