People of the world, bow down: The true queen of television, the woman who melted our hearts and tickled our souls with her jokes and subsequent reaction GIFs, is back. Tina Fey is making a triumphant return to television after 30 Rock ended. In other news, Nietzsche recently awoke from death to retract his former statements regarding God and proclaim that yes, we have all been #blessed on this day.

Deadline reports that Fey and 30 Rock cohort Robert Carlock, along with writer/producer Colleen McGuinness, are working on a new Girlie Show female-centric comedy for NBC. The project will include Fey as an executive producer, and we sincerely hope she'll be joining McGuinness (who came to 30 Rock in season six) in the writer's room, too. So far, this is all we know: "The project, said to be in the vein of Cheers, is a character-driven workplace comedy where a young woman in search of reconnecting with her father finds a new home and family on Fire Island." For now, we're just going to assume this is some kind of flashback to the time Liz Lemon got tricked into joining Jenna on Mickey Rourke's sex yacht, of which Tracy is the captain, and hilarity ensued. That sounds like a win to us. (Jezebel)
