Kabletown lives: 30 Rock promises more Comcast satire

There's good news for Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) haters or just those folks who think the MSO is stuffier than a Philadelphia law firm. 30 Rock, which has made sport of its broadcast parent NBC throughout its reign, won't quit when (not if, that's pretty much a given) Comcast acquires NBC Universal.

The show last season began a running joke about a cable company called Kabletown, loosely and satirically based on NBC's new parent Comcast, that was acquiring NBC and sending executives into a frenzy. There was some question and fear that the show would pull back on the mockery once Comcast took final control.

Not to worry, 30 Rock fans. Show honcho and star Tina Fey and co-showrunner (whatever that is) promises that Kabletown will be back with "a couple things we've got in the works."
