While Alec Baldwin recently went on a tirade to trash Today and he has repeatedly said his time at 30 Rock is close to an end Tina Fey appeared on The View on Thursday and said the show will go on with Alec Baldwin in tow although the end is likely near.
According to Fey:
“As far as I know, he’s not leaving the show. We’re all in this together ’til the end. I think that he just maybe means that the end of the show — we’re in six years — that the end of the show is visible on the horizon. We’re all still on the show.”
Fey and Baldwin have already signed on the dotted line for a seventh season although NBC must first renew the show for another year before those contracts become valid. TV analysts believe the seventh season is all but secured and will likely be its last as 30 Rock has slipped to series low ratings.
Barbara Walters wasn’t happy about the decision but Fey put the inevitable decision in perspective:
“We can’t do this for 35 years. We’d love to keep going and see where everybody ends up, right? But you don’t want to see me with a gray stripe, eating a slice of pizza, going on dates.”
Fans of the show should definitely tune in on Thursday April 26 when another live show will air while Tina Fey promises that 30 Rock will be populated with new and former famous faces in 2012. In what might be my favorite announcement Fey says another fake reality TV series known as Queen Of Jordan.
