>The season finale is coming up—and I don’t even care! By the hammer of Thor, what went wrong with the Emmy-winning sitcom?

1 THE ANTI-NBC MOCKERY GOT STALE.

The Jay Leno-Conan O’Brien dustup was satirized with a labored gag about a janitor named Khonani. Weak.

2 TINA FEY MAKES A GREAT SARAH PALIN …

But her Liz Lemon has gotten stranded somewhere between cute irritability and annoying winsomeness.

3 KENNETH HAS NO FREQUENCY.

Jack McBrayer has been wonderful as studio page Kenneth—but putting him in drag? That’s what you call a deal-breaker.
