Comedy rocked once again at the 61st Primetime Emmys, where 30 Rock was named top sitcom series and its lead male star, Alec Baldwin, outstanding actor in a comedy series. Both also took the titles last year.
"That was a real nail biter," said the show's creator, producer and star Tina Fey when she accepted the award toward the end of Sunday night's ceremony. She also thanked NBC for keeping the show on the air, even though, as she pointed out, it is more expensive than a talk show.
For the second consecutive year, AMC's Mad Men, a period '60s look at Madison Avenue's advertising world and those who worked in it, was named outstanding drama series.
