Or, at least, that’s what we might think if we were following Alec Baldwin on Twitter. Making news yet again, several news outlets caught wind of the tweet that stated, “I haven’t appeared on the Today Show in many years, but did they have to camp outside my apt?” Quickly followed by, “I think I’m leaving NBC just in time.”
In response to his tweet, Tina Fey confirms that, indeed, the end is near. Err, I mean, for 30 Rock. Fey announces that she will definitely be going down with the ship on this one, telling the View, “As far as I know, he’s not leaving the show. We’re all in this together ’til the end.”
And then the conversation continues as Baldwin attempts to pull that foot promptly shoved into his mouth that he seems to love the taste of, by saying, “As far as I know 30 Rock is back next year. But all things must pass. New shows. New People.”
Quick interjection, people: Yup, I’m sure we’re all aware of the cycle of life. We all saw Lion King. But how many of us announce “the end” when it is still eons away, supposedly?
He then shifts the blame and focus onto Tina Fey (well played, Baldwin Boy, well played) by prompting his audience to consider all the wonderful things Tina will after 30 Rock. “People need new things creatively…sometimes, they need to do nothing at all.”
In the mean time, while Alec Baldwin inches a bit closer to the unemployment line, he may be considering a career in politics as hinted with his interview with Bloomberg Television. Future Mayor of New York City? Could be. For now, the show surges on.
