Tracy transplant

"30 Rock"'s Tracy Morgan will miss taping two or three episodes of the sitcom while he recuperates from a kidney transplant. Morgan, who was diagnosed with diabetes in 1996, isn't completely down for the count; the 42-year-old comedian-actor was spotted at a New York Knicks game on Dec. 17. Writers will explain his absence in the show with a story line that includes his character freaking out over something good that happens to him. We'll have to wait until March to find out -- that's when those episodes air.
