Liz Lemon has reason to celebrate: NBC's "30 Rock" has nabbed megabucks in off-network sales to Comedy Central and WGN America.
The Universal Media Studios laffer starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin was said to have fetched an impressive fee of about $800,000 per episode in total from separate deals with Viacom-owned Comedy Central and Tribune-owned WGN. Both outlets will begin airing the episodes as a Monday-Friday strip in fall 2011.
