#30rock's Episode 5.03 "Let's Stay Together" was on Diversity!
Jack Donaghy goes to Washington to substantiate the NBC merger with KableTown. Congresswoman Regina Bookman played by Queen Latifah threw Jack a curve ball by demanding more diversity in its programming lineup. Other guest was Rob Reiner playing a Congressman .
Regina Bookman: Why is that NBC looks about as diverse as a Wilco concert?
Jack: I would point to Sunday Night Football which features many black players and coaches. And Anthony Anderson the star of Law & Order which is entering its 21st…
[Jonathan interrupts him]
Jack solicits Tracy's help for some diverse programming..
Jack: Dot Com, you run Tracy’s production company, right?
Dot Com: Yes, Dot Com Productions.
Tracy: That’s “Tracy Jordan” spelled backwards.

Tracy: Call Grizz. I need someone around who’s not just a yes man.
Dot Com: Whatever you say, Tray. Oh come on, Walter.
Tracy: I personally love cop shows. I can’t wait for Law & Order to start back up.
Tracy: Why? It was a tent pole! A tent pole!
Dot Com: Here’s something I’ve been working on. It’s called “Let’s Stay Together” after the Al Green song. It focuses on an African American family in Detroit in the 70’s. Mo-town. The auto industry. Vietnam. Watergate. “Let’s Stay Together” is not just about a family trying to stay together, but a nation.
Grizz: What if there was a talking dog? ( a talking dog yikes!)
Tracy: I’d like to see that incorporated into your rewrite.
We see Dot Com a couple of times including the end as Tracy and his entourage preview the project with none other than John Amos most famous for the 70's show "Good Times" and "a talking dog".
