"30 Rock" Watch

By Margaret Hicks in Arts & Entertainment on Apr 27, 2007 2:00PM

Just when we thought we were out of the bad place with “30 Rock”, the worries start anew.

4_27_07Baldwin.jpgAlec Baldwin told “The View” ladies in a pre-taped interview that airs today, that he wants off the newly renewed show. NO! WAIT! ALEC! We know you yelled at your daughter and you’re going through a messy custody battle, but please, we need you. We know you quit your talent agency Creative Artists, but please don’t quit the best thing that’s happened to you or us.

In a statement from NBC, they said “We look forward to having him continue in the role”. NBC knows to lose Baldwin would be a hard hit for “30 Rock”. We think Chicago improviser Tina Fey could handle it and find someone to replace Baldwin, but “30 Rock” just wouldn't be the same without him.
