Some “television critics” have suggested that 30 Rock’s Thursday night episode on the beauty that is Cleveland might have been a bit tongue and cheek. Some “television critics” have suggested that 30 Rock’s Thursday night episode on the beauty that is Cleveland might have been a bit tongue and cheek. Though the show wasn’t shot in Cleveland, we still submit it is the best promotional campaign ever to befall this city. Take a look at some of the comments: Left Boston for Cleveland in 1995 .. parents did the same in 1998.. never regretted it. -John Oh, oh, Tina . . . there goes the price on my timeshare. 30 and Cleveland Rock! -Lisbeth I’ve lived in Seattle, Hawaii, and British Columbia, but my husband and I are moving back to Cleveland. People think we’re crazy. Glad to know someone understands this city’s appeal!!! -Laura Hysterical Show!!!!!! A former Clevelander now residing in South Florida here. We may have the sun but Cleveland's definitely got the warmth and so much more... I'll always be a Clevelander at heart! It's truly an amazing city. - Richie C -- Rebecca Meiser
