TV critic's picks for Thursday, Nov. 29

A royal wedding

You are cordially invited to witness the nuptials of Ms. Elizabeth Miervaldis Lemon and Mr. Crisstopher Rick Chross on a new episode of "30 Rock" (7 p.m., KARE, Ch. 11). Based on the dwindling number of viewers who still seem to care about this show, there should be plenty of cake for everyone.

Thanks for the memory

Even die-hard movie fans may not be aware that Katharine Hepburn and Bob Hope once made a movie together. "The Iron Petticoat" (7 p.m., TCM), a Cold War comedy about a female Soviet jet pilot and the officer who tries to get her to change her colors, makes its U.S. television premiere.

A bad scare

"Panic 9-1-1" (9 p.m., A&E) recycles audio from real calls to police and uses them to fuel this new series. It's completely legal to use these phone conversations, but I'm not sure it's playing fair to capture people at moments of crises and label it "entertainment."
