Oh, what will we do on Thursday nights without the wonderful wit of Tina Fey and company? As the various loopy characters gather for the final episode of “TGS” before moving on to the next phase of their lives (Liz is now a mother! Kenneth is the head of NBC? Really?), let us take a moment to thank Tina, Alec Baldwin, Jane Krakowski, Tracy Morgan, Jack McBrayer and everyone else for seven seasons of a very witty, clever and funny television show. Hourlong series finale. 8 p.m. Thursday on NBC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
