The 17 Differences Between the East Coast and West Coast 30 Rock Episodes

By

So, the live 30 Rock was last night, and it was pretty great. It was surreal seeing a strange SNL/30 Rock hybrid, with a live audience, awkward beats between transitions, and a different-looking set. It’s probably not the way we’d want to see the show every week, but it was incredibly cool to see it like this once. Or twice, if you’re a big enough superfan to watch both versions. Both are available on NBC.com already: here’s the east coast version and here’s the west coast version.

Not interested in watching the version you missed? Vulture was nice enough to watch both and make a detailed list of the 17 differences between the two versions. The main stuff: Jane Krakowski sings the intro on the east coast, Cheyenne Jackson on the west; Dr. Spaceman’s jokes are punched up/changed between broadcasts; a couple of bloopers happen and aren’t repeated. Nothing too crazy!
