From ‘Bear vs. Killer Robots’ to ‘Gaybraham Lincoln’: A List of Every TGS Sketch or Pitch From 30 Rock

The writers on 30 Rock's fictional show within a show, TGS, have come up with many sure-to-be-timeless sketch ideas. Unfortunately, we never get to actually see them: At best, we get a glimpse of a rehearsal, at worst, a mere mention in the writers' room. But even though they're not actually performed, they deserve as much of a place in the pantheon of sketch comedy as Saturday Night Live's "Church Lady" or the Kids in the Hall's "Head Crusher." So to ensure they are never forgotten, we're starting a list of all of the TGS sketches ever referenced. This is what we found: did we leave any out?
