Alec Baldwin Announces The End Of The World 30 Rock In 2012

All good things must come to an end - but he could've given us a bit more warning!

Last night, Alec Baldwin dropped a bomb of a story while he was being honored at the National Dance Institute's annual fund-raising gala. After chatting a bit about the institute and his upcoming role in Rock of Ages alongside Tom Cruise, Alec announced that he'd have a lot more time on his hands come next year as his hit show, 30 Rock, was heading into it's final season.

He explained:

"I will tell you one thing and that is our show next year is our last year of the show…Our contracts are expired [in 2012], and Tina is gonna have a big career directing films and writing. She's going to be the next Elaine May. She'll be great."

Of course she will be, but why walk away now! The show is still a massive hit, even at 10 PM! It seems like such a waste to leave on such a high note.

Then again, perhaps its better to scurry now with the high note is still able to be had. With The Office facing a possible serious decline without Steve Carrell and no other heavy-hitting show to help as a lead-in, 30 Rock may not be able to keep its momentum.

Hey! There is only so much Parks and Rec can do! They have to worry about their own show!

    "No other heavy-hitting show"?? Perez… try putting on Community. It's only in it's 2nd season but the ratings have been phenom and it's built up quite a following. Parks & Rec and Outsourced blow goats but, Community is fastly becoming the hit of the Thursday comdey block.

    Elaine May? That sounds like a backhanded compliment. Elaine May is brilliant, but seeing as "A New Leaf" got butchered by the studio (although it's still a great movie), "Mickey and Nickey" got her fired from Paramount, "The Heartbreak Kid" was bastardized by the Farrellys and the disaster that was "Ishtar" remains Hollywood legend almost 25 years after the fact, comparing Tina Fey to her is basically prophesizing Fey's doom. It would be like saying an up-and-coming indie director is going to have a career like Orson Welles.'

    The only reason that they get such good ratings is because of the time slot theyre on and because nothing else is on at that time

    I really never liked 30 Rock as much as the others anyway. It always pissed me off that Steve Carrell loses to Alec Baldwin all the time.
    And as far as "heavy-hitting" shows, Parks & Rec is amazing and you clearly need to watch Community, because it's hilarious.
