    Johnny & Tara - still commenting on the "Olympics"

    Well, the 30 Rock Lunchtime Skating Olympics anyway...

    That was more entertaining than all of their legit Olympics commentary combined.

    For those who didn't see their actual commentating, Johnny was not this over-the-top! He really hammed it up for this, while Tara kept it kind of low-key. I actually think it would have been funnier if Johnny had kept the same tone as he does when he's commentating...it would be more deadpan. But this was cute.

    Yeah, they were definitely reading a script, but it was great. That last skater...I thought maybe Meyers' staff hired him to come in for the comic possibilities.

    That's possible. Rink guards usually don't allow too much of what he was doing.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.
