Fans of 30 Rock can quit panicking, at least for the time being. After Wednesday's terror-inducing statement by Alec Baldwin that 30 Rock was as good as done, he's gone and taken it all back.
I hope 30 Rock goes on forever. Or at least as long as everyone involved desires.
Next year hopefully won't be the last. Kenneth can run the network. Jenna will get her own talk show. Tracy will become Mayor of New York. Then resign to go raise exotic reptiles. And Lemon will go do…. just about anything she sets her mind to. Here's to five more seasons.
It's not the world's most convincing apology, more of a "maybe pigs will fly, now leave me alone" tack. But, we should be real about this. I like 30 Rock. You like 30 Rock. But wouldn't we all rather see the show complete a solid six-season run and then disappear, so the talented cast can go off and do other things? Rather than jump the shark, lose half its talent, and slowly start to suck? Yes. The answer is yes.
