It’s a Fey-off: Kimmy Schmidt vs 30 Rock

Kimmy Schmidt is a show where an already established character who’s either “good” or “bad” is put in a sequence of situations they need to get through while being overdramatic for laughs.

30 Rock is a show where a cast of characters need to grow as the nature of business, TV, and politics change all around them.
