BREAKING NEWS: Weird Al to appear on 30 Rock!

"Weird Al" Yankovic, known for his best-selling comedy albums and pop song parodies, will be appearing on an upcoming episode of 30 Rock.  Weird Al broke the story himself on Twitter, when he tweeted the following message:

Guess which show I'M gonna be on...

Clearly, that is a picture of Weird Al with Tina Fey and Scott Adsit from 30 Rock.  As huge fans of both Weird Al and 30 Rock, we are very excited by this news!

30 Rock has previously referenced Weird Al in the season 3 finale "Kidney Now".  In the episode, Jack decides to have a benefit concert "like 'We Are the World' - or 'Weird Al' Yankovic's less successful parody benefit, 'We Are the Pizza'".  Perhaps "We Are the Pizza" will finally see the light of day?

Weird Al is no stranger to appearing on TV comedies.  He has made guest appearances on many TV shows, most recently on an episode of How I Met Your Mother, playing himself from 1985.
