[[WMG: Kenneth deliberately held of on making a show based on Liz so it would be a smash.]]
Liz's great-granddaughter essentially pitches the same show Liz did-- one based on her life as the writer of TGS-- but tells her that he loves the idea, while Liz couldn't even finish her pitch. Kenneth being Kenneth, he likely did love the idea just as much when Liz suggested it, and could have green-lit the show despite the concept being on his no-no list. So why didn't he, and why did he green-light it 100 years later? Because he wanted this show to be adored. If he has said yes to Liz, the show would have been in the same position as 30 Rock was: critically adored, cult following, but always on the bubble, because it wasn't what people wanted. Rather than dooming something that likely would have meant a great deal to him to cult status, Kenneth said no, biding his time. 100 years later, Liz's great-granddaughter comes in to pitch a series about Liz and TGS, but this time, audiences tastes have shifted, so much so that a smart period comedy about a fictionalized version of a cult sketch comedy show's production would be a huge success.

Remember that Liz's mom worked for Sterling Cooper in the 60s, so we know MadMen and 30 Rock share a common universe. And we know from St. Valentine's Day that Drew's mother had him out of wedlock in her teens or early 20s. And he was probably born sometime in the 60s, and he looks just like Don Draper. It all adds up to Drew Baird being Don Draper's bastard son.

** Well, now, there ''is'' a difference between "softcore" porn (attractive people doing technically non-sexual things in skimpy clothing) and "hardcore" porn (attractive people get naked and perform overt sexual acts). ''Series/ThirtyRock'' is softcore nerdporn (TinaFey. What, you need more? Well, there ''is'' more.) as opposed to hardcore nerdporn (TinaFey deciding to do a ''Series/ThirtyRock'' episode with FeliciaDay, NathanFillion, WilliamShatner, LucyLawless, etc, and so on, etc).
