When Jerry Seinfeld confronts Jack about a new marketing campaign which featured clips of Seinfeld, he has a chance encounter with Liz that gives her some much needed advice. During the TGS summer hiatus, Jenna becomes overweight due to performing in the Broadway show Mystic Pizza: The Musical. Tracy has encountered some marital problems with his wife Angie Jordan and they become separated, but later reunite. Jack develops a relationship with a Democratic congresswoman named Celeste "C. C." Cunningham
Jack tries to get his job - and his promotion - back. Meanwhile, Liz tries to adopt a baby, while Tracy enjoys the success of his pornographic videogame as Jenna sues him for not properly compensating her.
A recurring story arc early in season 4 revolved around Jack's request that Liz cast a new actor for TGS, and Liz's subsequent search for the perfect comedian, much to the dismay of Jenna and Tracy, who fear losing their spotlight. The later half of the season focused on two complementary story arcs: Jack's inability to choose between his two girlfriends, and Liz's inability to find a boyfriend to live up to her expectations and Jenna's relationship with a Jenna Maroney impersonator.
Jack Donaghy is transferred to work at the NBC headquarters, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, and retool the late night sketch comedy series The Girlie Show. The show's cast and crew are outraged by this; especially head writer Liz Lemon and main actress Jenna Maroney. Jack proceeds to wreak havoc on The Girlie Show, forcing Liz to hire off-the-wall movie star Tracy Jordan. He again irates the cast and crew of The Girlie Show when he changes the name to TGS with Tracy Jordan (or just TGS).
