Tina Fey’s sexiness is somehow all wrapped up in her glasses. Without the glasses, she’s pretty, very pretty, but with them on she’s like the smokin’ grad student teaching the freshman intro course who made you sing, “I got it bad, I got it bad, I got it bad—I’m hot for teacher.” For the TM who loves smart, successful women, you gotta love that Tina’s so deeply self-visualized—not only is she a boss (exec producer of
30 Rock) but Liz Lemon, the character she’s dreamt up on the show, is also a boss (head writer of TGS with Tracy Jordan). Perhaps something in the zeitgeist is holding back the pet projects of the hottest, funniest TMSSs this year because both
The Sarah Silverman Program and
30 Rock slogged through their worst seasons ever (ratings-wise). But like Sarah, who had her greatest success in a satellite project (faux boning Matt on the web), Tina’s toxic caricature of Sarah Palin sealed her place in the TMSS Hall of Fame and, of course, is a reason why Obama won.
