It appears the premise for TLC's MILF Manor seems vaguely familiar to a joke featured in an episode of the popular NBC comedy 30 Rock.

The staff of TGS with Tracy Jordan in 30 Rock were obsessed with a show very similar to that of MILF Manor.

But unlike the drama taking place at a fancy manse, the fictional show on the NBC comedy series took place on an island.

In the 11th episode of 30 Rock's second season titled MILF Island, Jack Donaghy–portrayed by Alec Baldwin–described the reality show as one that featured:

“25 super hot moms, 50 eighth grade boys, no rules."

The trailer for TLC's new reality show features eight MILFs who are described by the network as:

"confident and strong-minded women [who] leave home for the chance to find love."

MILFs are typically described as women over a certain age who are deemed sexually attractive and are seeking love with men who are significantly younger.

According to People Magazine, MILF Manor features:

"A competitive 47-year-old fitness studio owner from Mexico currently living in Miami, a spontaneous 50-year-old 'disco mommy' from Orange County, a 44-year-old Jersey girl who's relocated to Los Angeles, a 59-year-old fitness instructor and singer from L.A. and a 50-year-old event planner who used to be a B-Girl back in the day."

Here is the trailer for MILF Manor.

But fans of 30 Rock noted how this was pretty much a manifestation of the Milf Island joke.

30 Rock was a satirical TV series created by Tina Fey based on her experiences during her time as head writer on Saturday Night Live.

Fey starred in the series as Liz Lemon, who was a head writer and showrunner at the fictional NBC sketch comedy series, TGS with Tracy Jordan (originally called The Girlie Show), produced in Studio 6H in 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

The real address is the headquarters for NBC studios where SNL is filmed.

30 Rock originally aired from October 11, 2006, to January 31, 2013.

In response to seeing the trailer for MILF Manor, fans of 30 Rock gave credit where it was due.




Each episode in the real reality show will feature several challenges to test whether a connection is genuine or if it's time to move on.

However, the trailer teased a "shocking twist" that left one contestant remarking, "Things just got real," the moment the young suitors were revealed.

People had their theory about what this twist could be.



Prospective viewers will have to wait to see just how "real" things get when the drama unfolds at the manor come January 15 at 10 p.m. ET on TLC and discovery+.
