Season Five of 30 Rock began airing on September 23, 2010 on NBC in the United States. An episode from this season called Live Show was filmed and broadcast live, twice, on the evening of October 14, 2010. The two separate recordings resulted in a live telecast of the episode to American viewers in both the West and East Coast. This season also featured the show's 100th episode, called 100, which aired as a one-hour episode. During shooting of the season, Tracy Morgan underwent an emergency operation, causing his character to be written out for several episodes.


In Season Five, Liz Lemon continues her relationship with Carol, whom she met in the episode I Do Do. Jack Donaghy gets ready to be a father after marrying the woman he chose in the aforementioned episode, but an error in the wedding certificate leads to shocking results, and he must deal with both the Kabletown boss and the boss's granddaughter, who are both a handful. Meanwhile, Tracy Jordan has a baby and finally gets his EGOT, winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony, but he must deal with the pressure of being an award-winning celebrity. Furthermore, his wife Angie Jordan is given a reality show of her own, which is cleverly aired as an episode of 30 Rock called Queen of Jordan. In other story arcs, Jenna Maroney continues her relationship with Paul and helps Kenneth Parcell get back into the NBC page program, and TGS with Tracy Jordan celebrates it's 100th episode in 30 Rock's 100th episode, 100.
