Jimmy Buffett got a mention on Thursday night’s episode of the award-winning NBC comedy “30 Rock.”

During the show, Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) appeared on the fictional CNBC program “The Hot Box” with Avery Jessup (Elizabeth Banks). During a rapid fire question session, Jessup asked Donaghy who is number one on his speed dial. He said “BlackBerry: Warren Buffett. iPhone: Jimmy Buffett.”

You can watch the full episode online at Hulu.com

Jimmy is referenced from time to time on television programs. Last year he was mentioned on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and on The Colbert Report. And in 2008 he was lampooned by South Park.
