Thursday night TV on NBC has been one of the highlights of my week since I was a kid.I remember racing home after school to finish my homework as quickly as possible so I could watchFamily Tiesand theCosby Showwithout my parents nagging me.I thought Alex P.Keaton was my soul mate and when my parents got on my case,I wondered what it would be like if the Huxtables adopted me.
As I got older,I used to clear my schedule so I was promptly home in time to watchFriendsandWill and Grace.And,ordering in and watching30 RockandThe Officeevery Thursday night became one of the first rituals my husband and I created together when we started dating.

Jack McBrayer-30 Rock
Who doesn't love Jack as,the lovable,innocent,wide-eyed NBC page Kenneth?It's hard to imagine him playing any other part and with his signature wide smile,I like to think that maybe this commercial for Millstone Coffee (thought to be one of his first professional gigs) was a training ground for Kenneth's admin duties!
