Scapegoating makes ratings loser 30 Rock look desperado, Alec!
Blowhard Alec Baldwin whined in a recent interview that NBC hasn't done much to promote his show as opposed to My Name Is Earl, which he thinks sucks.
Says the belligerent daddy:
"NBC hasn't done a thing to help this show ('30 Rock'). They've gone out of their way to wring the last drops out of 'My Name Is Earl' and 'Scrubs.' Those shows are done! They're cooked! Yet they do a one-hour episode of 'Earl.'"
No surprise, Baldwin's pout infuriated My Name Is Earl creator Greg Garcia.
Garcia issued a scathing statement in response:
"(Baldwin) sounds like a psychotic narcissist. Instead of blaming NBC, I think Alec should consider that some people in America may not want to watch a man who cusses out his own 11-year-old daughter on a phone message. Oh, and the reason NBC occasionally puts on an hour long episode of 'Earl' is because an hour of 'Earl' gets better ratings than an 'Earl' followed by a '30 Rock.' It's called math, stupid."
At least 30 Rock has gimicky guest stars to help the cause this season, Alec.
It gets better!
Alec Baldwin sort of apologized to the Earl cast but then throws a low blow:
My apologies to the cast and crews of My Name Is Earl and Scrubs. In my frustration with NBC's reprehensible promotion of 30 Rock, I took an unfortunate swipe at both of those shows and that was not cool.
But, for Earl's creator, Greg Garcia, who referred to me as a "psychotic", I have only one question. Why are you Scientologists always rendering these medical opinions you aren't qualified to give?
This is getting good!
