Live TV Episodes: A Brief History

Live from New York, it’s … 30 Rock?

Yes, that’s right television fans: Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and the rest of 30 Rock cast will be coming at you live for tonight’s episode. While the news is exciting, Rock certainly isn’t the first traditionally taped show to go live for a night. Everyone from ER to The Drew Carey Show have done a special, straight-from-the-studio live event with (mostly) no drama or mishaps.

In honor of 30 Rock’s first-ever live foray, Celebuzz decided to take a look back in live special history and document the best ventures. Check out our gallery of live shows and share your favorite moments in the comments.
