    "30 Rock" 's precision zinger

    As awkward as it may look, which version below is technically correct in terms of punctuation when using the possessive form of a movie or show enclosed in quotation marks? One of them must be correct with the quote marks. Just please choose what you consider to be the closest, best fit. I'm looking at this from the perspective that italics are not allowed and the examples below are actual utterances. Please select one or two that is workable in each set. Thank you in advance for your help. (The words enclosed in quotes are TV programs here in America.)

    Set 1
    • “30 Rock” ’s precision zinger machine...
    • “Community” ’s showrunner, Dan Harmon...

    Set 2
    • '30 Rock' ’s precision zinger machine...
    • 'Community' ’s showrunner, Dan Harmon...

    Set 3
    • '30 Rock'’s precision zinger machine...
    • 'Community'’s showrunner, Dan Harmon...
