THE TIMING OF Upper Darby's Tina Fey has always been perfect. Even when it comes to pregnancy. While taping an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" Wednesday, "Bossypants" author Tina announced she is expecting baby No. 2. The episode will air next week so we're sorry we ruined the surprise. Tina is about five months pregnant, she told Oprah, which means that her "30 Rock" character, Liz Lemon, will have to stand behind fruit baskets for only a few episodes when the show returns to shooting.

IF THE POLLS stay as they are and Barack Obama wins the presidency in November, countless armchair quarterbacks will theorize how it happened: Was it Obama's ground game? An economy in freefall? John McCain's negativity? Anger at a Republican president? Young people and minorities coming out to vote in record numbers? Gov. Sarah Palin kissing a New York Ranger before dropping the puck at the Flyers home opener? A desire to end the Iraq war? Or maybe just Obama getting all the terrorist-supporting Muslim radicals in his "Manchurian Candidate"-like sleeper cell out to the polls before they turn America into an Arab-speaking Socialist country?

It's not often that The Tonight Show becomes the showcase for college fund-raising. But Upper Darby native Tina Fey changed that Wednesday night when she said on the show that she and her brother, Peter, had created a Temple University scholarship fund in memory of their father, Donald, a Temple alumnus, who died in October. The show briefly ran the scholarship fund link - Giving.Temple.edu/FeyMemorial - on the screen as Fey talked. The fund had already collected some gifts, including a donation from Tonight host Jimmy Fallon, said David Boardman, dean of Temple's School of Media and Communication.

A fledgling theater group in Chester County has landed a bit of bigtime help from showbiz dynamo Tina Fey. The Upper Darby High grad turned TV and film star filmed a surprise, unpaid pitch for Facetime Community Theatre, a Phoenixville-based nonprofit that offered its first program this summer, a theater camp for kids.

It's not as if I'm a regular reader of Vanity Fair, but Tina Fey on the cover of the January issue was bananas, so I felt it was my manly duty to investigate the Maureen Dowd interview. Besides, gamers usually like the ladies with a scar or two. But I digress. Did you know that Fey, the 30 Rock creator, Upper Darby High School graduate, Saturday Night Live actor, and awesome Sarah Palin impersonator, once did voice-overs for a pinball game? Feel free to file this under fairly useless information, but Fey used a Southern drawl, an "Ellie May Clampett voice" she told Dowd, in a game called Medieval Madness by Williams Electronic Games in 1997.

I've spent days trying to clear the theme song for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt from my head, and it's not going so well. Let's just say 3 p.m.'s catchy "It's a miracle!" is 3 a.m.'s unbreakable earworm. But don't let that indelible song, courtesy of composer and executive producer Jeff Richmond, keep you from the still-irresistible Kimmy , whose entire 13-episode Season 2 premieres Friday on Netflix. Created by Upper Darby's Tina Fey (who's married to Richmond) and her 30 Rock colleague Robert Carlock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt stars Ellie Kemper ( The Office )

War is hell. More often than not, getting a great war scoop is anything but. Going on crazed missions with troops, digging into the absurdity of a chaotic, faraway state and bringing accurate, coherent stories back home is many a journalist's dream job. The dream came true for Kim Barker, who became an initially unqualified but increasingly insightful war correspondent for the Chicago Tribune in 2004, covering the growing insurgency in Pakistan...

The movie star  deemed to have the best chance to compete against "Star Wars" this weekend: Upper Darby's own Tina Fey. Fey and Amy Poehler headline the comedy "Sisters," a movie scheduled to compete with "The Force Awakens" on the hope that a female-centered comedy might find a niche. "A year ago they [the studio executives] were like, 'We've got a great idea!' But I do sort of get it," said Fey, speaking with a UK newspaper. "It's what they call counterprogramming, and hopefully it's the holiday season when you go to the movies more than once, and you have such a great time at 'Sisters' that you think, 'Maybe I'll go and see 'Star Wars' now'.

WHEN TINA FEY won the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2010, copies of Twain's massive door-stopping autobiography were distributed. From the stage of the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, Tina said, "If there is anyone in this room who will read this book, it's my father. " There was no doubt that her father, Donald, would read the Twain book, not the least put off by its 700-plus pages, because he was a voracious reader who couldn't seem to get enough of the printed page.

Philly will be representing at the 67th annual Emmy awards. Upper Darby's Tina Fey, who between "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" already owns eight of the gold-ish statuettes, is up for four more.

Fey's also nominated for her writing on the Golden Globe awards, which she co-hosted, and, in the same category, for writing on the "SNL" 40th anniversary special.
