Tuning in to TV: Coffer tries hand at screenwriting
Question of the Day
The initial performance — telecast at 8:30 p.m. Eastern time — went smoothly, with no noticeable technical glitches and one minor flubbed line.
Three hours later, the cast and guest stars hit their marks once again for viewers in the Western time zone. One of the changes: instead of Sir Paul, reality queen Kim Kardashian made use of Donaghy’s bathroom.
By the end of the episode, Donaghy was won over to the importance of live TV.
” ‘TGS’ is meant to be live,” he concluded. “To make it more profitable, we’ll just need to do more sponsored product placements. Or I’ll just pay you all less.”
Whereupon Mr. McCartney reappeared on stage, looking dazed.
“I slipped and hit my head in the bathroom,” he said. “Who am I?”
“You’re my boyfriend!” Liz Lemon told him as she gleefully led him away.
In the West Coast version, Miss Kardashian had the last word. When Liz remarked that 2.5 million viewers saw “TGS,” Miss Kardashian strolled by and recorded the moment on video for her followers.
“Now, 14 million people just saw it. You’re welcome,” Ms. Kardashian said. “Oh, and also, I broke your toilet.”

George H.W. Bush subject of HBO film
HBO is producing a documentary on President George H.W. Bush to debut two days after his 88th birthday in June.
Titled “41,” the film about the 41st president is being produced by Jerry Weintraub, a friend of the Bush family and himself the subject of “My Way,” another HBO documentary. Jeffrey Roth, who made “The Wonder of It All” about Apollo moon walkers, is directing and writing the film.
It was made between September 2009 and February 2011.
HBO said Friday that Mr. Bush, father of the 43rd president, shares anecdotes about his youth, various jobs and term as president from 1989 to 1993. Its first airing is June 14.
