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.
"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!
