The highs and lows of the NBC page program (like fetching nachos from Yankee Stadium) were frequent plot points on Tina Fey's beloved comedy 30 Rock, which featured Jack McBrayer as Kenneth, the perennially put-upon and relentlessly cheerful page.

According to Regis Philbin's appearance on Late Night Wednesday, 30 Rock might not have been that far off.

Originally posted 02/27/2014 07:15PM

After bidding a bittersweet goodbye to Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe, Parks and Recreation returns Thursday with plenty of Pawnee action. Though Ann and Chris are gone, there's now room for other characters to take the spotlight – and we're hoping Retta's Donna Meagle gets more time to shine.

Speaking to PEOPLE, Retta revealed she's pushing for love. Donna has enjoyed a wild dating life, but Retta thinks it's time for a real relationship.

"I want there to be a romantic interest in her future, and I keep bringing it up to our executive producer," Retta says. "I've kind of put it in his brain, and I believe that he shall hook a sister up, as they say."

Biggest Loser's Rachel Frederickson: I Was 'Too Enthusiastic' with Training

Biggest Loser Winner Rachel Frederickson to PEOPLE: I Was 'Too Enthusiastic' with Training

Originally posted 02/12/2014 08:00AM



When Rachel Frederickson revealed her new, size 0-2 figure on the Feb. 4 finale of NBC's The Biggest Loser, she thought she would wow friends, family and viewers – and maybe win the title of Biggest Loser.

She did win, but the 24-year-old voice actress also ignited a firestorm of controversy about her dramatically slimmed-down figure, down to 105 lbs. from her starting weight of 260 lbs. (At 5'4", her height-weight ratio puts her BMI at 18, below the threshold doctors consider normal.)

Sitting down with PEOPLE in Los Angeles, just days after she made headlines for her striking transformation, Frederickson says she maintained a 1,600-calorie daily diet, working out six hours a day in the three months before the finale.

Alison Sweeney: Team USA's Winter Olympians Are Inspirational

Alison Sweeney's Biggest Loser Blog: Meeting Winter Olympic Athletes Was Inspirational

Alison Sweeney is the host of NBC's The Biggest Loser, the award-winning star of Days of Our Lives, and author of The Star Attraction and The Mommy Diet. She's also a director, producer, wife and mom. Like she has for the past three seasons, Alison will blog each week about the latest episode of The Biggest Loser. Follow her on Twitter: @Ali_Sweeney.

Are you all getting excited for the Winter Olympics? I have to say, the week we spent in Park City, Utah, was so incredible. To meet the athletes, to see where they are training and to watch their intensity and focus was inspirational. I personally loved meeting the U.S. Women's Curling Team and the U.S. Women's Bobsled Team and I loved traveling with the contestants, trainers and the Biggest Loser crew.

As much as the travel week is nerve-wracking for contestants, I could tell it was also reinvigorating for them. During the challenge, when the contestants started curling, it was pure comedy but they quickly got into their competitive spirit – Jay wanting to not win and have a greater target on his back and the rest wanting to win the $5000 prize. The competition was so exciting and Rachel coming from nowhere to win was particularly impressive. You have to give Rachel credit – she's willing to put the target on her back to keep focused on the life-changes and competition instead of the game play.
