'30 Rock,' Getting Meta, and The PCHH FAQ

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Trey Graham and Glen Weldon talk about NBC's '30 Rock,' which just had its series finale. They'll discuss what the show did particularly well, including being meta — how a comedy show on NBC about a comedy show on NBC worked. They'll also drum up other examples of metacommentary done well and not so well in TV, film and theater. Finally, they take on listener questions about the Zaxxon rule and more in a Pop Culture Happy Hour FAQ. All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week.
