Alec Baldwin raised eyebrows when he suggested that "30 Rock" was headed into its last season back in April, and although he cheekily retracted his statement, executive producer Lorne Michaels is saying that the show could go on without him.
Michaels tells New York Magazine's Vulture, "I can't imagine doing the show without Alec, but I couldn't imagine doing ['Saturday Night Live'] without Chevy...And we're still on the air."
He adds that "30 Rock" star Tina Fey is "completely committed to the show," and that he can't imagine a scenario where the comedy would come to an end after next season.
"It's got a lot of life and vitality," Michaels said, "and we all want to keep it going."
