Never one to shy away from the IRL controversy of its stars, last night’s 30 Rock devoted a whole episode to Tracy Morgan‘s now-infamous homophobic stand-up set in Nashville last Spring, which he’s since apologized for.


The episode, aptly titled “Crisis Control” revolved around the backlash after “Tracy Jordan” (played by Morgan) angered the gay community, and confused GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) with the trash bag company. Topical!

A GLAAD spokesman has already commented to The New York Times about the episode, saying “I thought it was hilarious. We’ve been called worse than trash bag manufacturers and look forward to seeing the second part next week.” Guess this means he won’t be fired after all.

We’re looking forward to Jack Donaghy’s inevitable clash with an unnamed airline after he refuses to turn off his phone during take-off because he’s too busy playing the addictive iPhone game “Words with Business Associates.”

2. The general election. In November, whichever two candidates make it out of the gubernatorial primary will face off to become the next New Jersey governor. While Phil Murphy (pictured) is the presumed favorite in the race due to current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dismal approval ratings tanking Republican credibility for many NJ voters, the results are still up in the air. Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
