    Ranking Liz Lemon's "30 Rock" Boyfriends

    For a hapless loser, Liz Lemon has done pretty well in the guy department. Here's a ranking of the men in her life.

    - Always around (has been in every season of 30 Rock)

    - Makes Liz laugh

    - Calls himself the love of Liz's life

    CONS:

    - Currently married with an adopted son named Black Dennis

    - Calls Liz "dummy"

    - Beeper King was a career high for him

    - Mocks Liz's past romantic failures

    - Uses Britishisms that aren't real ("sweeps" for spring cleaning)

    5. Carol Burnett

    PROS:

    - He's a pilot, which is the next best thing to being an astronaut

    - Away often enough that Liz isn't overwhelmed
