[spoiler]The alliance is a pretty standard reality show cliche, which this episode was largely based around making fun of, and The Office hardly came up with the re-sorbed fetus. I doubt that the 30 Rock writing staff set out to intentionally steal such minor things. They simply wrote a couple of jokes about the same subject. It happens.[/spoiler]
Anyway, new episode was kinda meh. Aside from the joke Pont just mentioned, and [spoiler]Pete dialing his own line[/spoiler], I don't recall laughing much. Upon rewatching, I enjoyed it a little more since I noticed a bunch of parallels between MILF Island and the TGS staff's situation which went over my head the first time, but it was still a pretty average episode. Let's hope they can improve - the first few episodes this season were absolutely brilliant.
