The Fake Head of NBC Has Some Thoughts on MSNBC

baldwin_4-8.jpgFrequent Huffington Post contributor Alec Baldwin wrote a post today about “why we need the New York Times.”

But within the column – a critique of two MSNBC programs.

He’s “a fan of” Countdown with Keith Olbermann and The Rachel Maddow Show. But of Olbermann, Baldwin writes, “He wastes too much time pissing on Bush and his deposed cronies.” And of Maddow – “She is smart and charming but her writers are dreadful and the less cutesy she is, the better. She did an excellent interview with Colin Powell recently. The next night, I missed that tougher, less avuncular Rachel.”

Maddow tells TVNewser, “My production company, ‘Dreadful, Cutesy and Avuncular’ will be issuing a response, in rhyme, shortly.”

If Baldwin, aka Jack Donaghy, president of east coast television and microwave oven programming on NBC’s “30 Rock,” checked out Countdown last night he may have been surprised with the lead — a 7-minute segment about how wiretaps have expanded in the Obama administration. “Welcome to change you cannot believe in, or sue over,” said Olbermann.

“Matt Lauer Can Suck It!”

Matt Lauer is not just anchor of the Today show, he’s an actor (playing himself). At least he was in a couple different mediums last night during “30 Rock.”

During the show, he was forced to appease Jack Donaghy‘s girlfriend’s grandmother (clip after the jump). But he was also featured prominently in a full trailer for the upcoming “Land of the Lost” movie that played during a commercial break, interviewing Dr. Rick Marshall (played by Will Ferrell) — before being attacked by him on the Today set. As of now, the trailer can only be seen on Subway’s Web site (serious cross promotion), but the Super Bowl ad featuring lower is below. > Update: AgencySpy has the full trailer, and some analysis:
