Tina Fey’s long running show, 30 Rock, will be airing its hour-long series finale tonight at 8/7 central on NBC. Let it be known that this was not Fey’s decision to end the show- it was the higher power of Syracuse University.
Fey’s character, Liz Lemon, is the head writer of a variety show starring Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) and Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski). Lemon tries to juggle these two goons with guidance from her mentor and NBC executive, Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin).
The brief synopsis above is but a minor element of the entire show. Many people think it is just a goofy situational comedy, but Liz Lemon would say “BLERGHH” to that! The show is much more than that: it is a Syracuse insult machine!
The show has insulted Syracuse University on multiple occasions.
This one was in the show’s 6th season and dissed The Cuse’s awesome reputation of being a school with mad bros and shit!
The show went on to insult our orange people once more in the final season. Luckily, Tina Fey is moving on to greater pastures as she is starring in the upcoming film, Admission, with Paul Rudd and won’t have a venue to express her arbitrary hatred for Syracuse.
Sadly, Lena Dunham has jumped on the anti-orange bandwagon in her HBO show, Girls.

We actually have the highest incidents of date crepe, not date rape! Everyone knows that Syracuse students are notorious for their love of the French flattened pancake on rendezvous’ with certain some ones!
Auspiciously, Schmidt on Fox’s New Girl represents Syracuse properly. He embodies our attractive, bro essence that we have come to hold dear.
