During the 2009–2010 upfront presentation on May 19, 2009, NBC announced that the show’s fourth season, following the precedent set by its third season, would premiere several weeks behind the rest of the network’s Thursday night lineup following a multi-week run of Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday specials. On June 25, NBC released its full fall premiere schedule, with 30 Rock returning on October 15, 2009. The fourth season aired under NBC’s promotional banner “Comedy Night Done Right” on Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time. The season drew 15 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, down from its previous record breaking totals of 17 and 22 in the second and third seasons, respectively. The season was released on DVD in the United States on September 21, 2010, as a three-disc set.
