While everything will be coming to a screeching halt pretty soon on NBC for their wall-to-wall coverage of the Winter Olympics, this Thursday is an all new night of comedy for the network. A big chunk of that will be 30 Rock as SNL alum Jan Hooks pops by as Jenna’s mom. From NBC:
Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) takes Frank (Judah Friedlander) in as a roommate, and is pleasantly surprised when the two make a pact to help each other kick their bad habits. Meanwhile, Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski) turns to Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) for help with her mother, Verna (Jan Hooks), who has come to visit.
Hooks has remained pretty active in TV since she departed from Saturday Night Live back in 1994. She went on to be a recurring guest on 3rd Rock From The Sun and even a few episodes of The Simpsons.
Check out four new clips from the upcoming episode of 30 Rock entitled “Verna” after the jump, and be sure to catch it this Thursday on NBC.
