NEW YORK CITY (NBC) -- "The Beginning of the End" is not only the title of tonight's season premiere episode of "30 Rock", it's also a reality.

The three time Emmy winner for "Best Comedy" is beginning its seventh and final season.

The hijinks of Liz Lemon and company are coming to an end.

"Knowing it's the final season, it does feel like senior year," says Tina Fey.

The show that began six years and 14 Emmys ago starts the comedy version of a fire sale tonight.

"What I'm most looking forward to this season is trying to cram in any joke left that we can think of, that we've ever wanted to do," Fey says.

There's also the business of wrapping up story lines for a very motley crew.

Some high profile guest stars, including Bryan Cranston, will also be along to help bring the series to a close.

Olympic swimming champ Ryan Lochte is among the other guest stars the show has lined up for the season.
