Fine -- sheets of rain, bolts of lightning, hail the size of newborns. Of course the local TV affiliates had to ax their respective networks' prime-time programming -- because there's nothing more captivating than the site of bat-shit meteorologists tracking the slow crawl of the apocalypse. Only, see, no 30 Rock or The Office last night, only the tag team of David Finfrock and James Aydelott -- which, come to think of it, might make a pretty good sitcom, only dunno if we could handle all the sexual tension. Till then, here are last night's episodes of 30 Rock and The Office, though I'd recommend watching the bigger versions over on Hulu. Still, fair warning, you'll get stuck there the rest of the day. --Robert Wilonsky
