Tina Fey wants to make you cry with '30 Rock's' final season

With "30 Rock" headed into its final season, Emmys nominee Tina Fey has a new goal:  Make the fans weep.

Since the show's already covered plenty of zany plots, as Fey told E!'s Ryan Seacrest on the Emmys red carpet Sunday, she just wants to make sure the last season is "satisfying to people who actually care about the characters."

Maybe her character, Liz Lemon, "will get a baby, and maybe she’ll get married, I don’t know," Fey said, jokingly adding, "our goal is to make people cry."

So far they've had guest stars like Olympic champ Ryan Lochte stop by for a cameo, and Fey revealed that Lochte was "really funny ... He played a sex idiot. He’s good at it."

Fey was decked out in Vivienne Westwood on the Emmys red carpet, for what she said could be her last time at the ceremony.

"I may never be here again," she told Seacrest. "So I’m going to steal a bunch of stuff."

    Who cares? Is there really a person watching that bad show?

      Um ... yes. Just because you hate her and the show doesn't mean that others don't. Everybody doesn't like the same things – just human nature. The world doesn't revolve around what you like or don't like. So please get a clue.

    What is the big deal about her? Her movies are horrible; I don't think she is the slightest bit funny. I just don't get it!

      If you don't get it, then you don't get it. What's to be done? Nothing. You either find Tina to be funny or you don't.

      I think she's very intelligent and very funny and creative!

      There is no planet, alternate dimension, or instant in all of time in which 'more Honey Boo Boo' is a sign of intelligent life. I'm not saying you can't enjoy the show, but do not ask for more of it. All of existance hangs in the balance.

    It's ok. We won't cry. We'll be ok if it goes off the air. I enjoyed watching it, but time to move on. Maybe they'll have new episodes of American Horror Story or Supernatural soon.
