Alec Baldwin gave “30 Rock” fans cause to fret Wednesday after he appeared to hint that he's thinking of leaving the hit comedy.
He was apparently irritated by the media reportedly staked outside his NYC home, presumably in the wake of the actor's ongoing complaint against alleged stalker Genevieve Sabourin.
"Outside my apt today, along side the other stalkers from the tabloid press, a crew that identified themselves as being with the Today Show," he tweeted Wednesday. "I haven't appeared on the Today Show in many years. But did they have to camp outside my apt?"
He continued, "A story about stalking sure brings out the stalkers in the media. But, the Today Show?... No one from NBC contacted me until the Today Show arrived at my apt."
But the coup de tat?
"I think I'm leaving NBC just in time," he said, seeming to imply his days playing mischievous TV exec Jack Donaghy were numbered.
Worried fans replied to ask for clarification, with one telling Baldwin, "WTF! What's going on????" and another tweeting, "what do you mean you're leaving NBC?! 30 Rock?!"
But it's not the first time Baldwin has suggested that he was done with the NBC sitcom, and it sounds like he believes we should wash our hands of television-based media altogether.
"If every entertainment show went off the air tomorrow, ? difference would it make? Every talk show? Political show? Sitcom, for that matter," Baldwin wrote Thursday. "Media in the US is dull. Deadening. uninformative. You're better off with reading. Or radio."
Baldwin's co-star Tina Fey doesn't see a Donaghy-less "30 Rock" anytime soon, though.
"As far as I know, he's not leaving the show," Fey said on "The View" Thursday. "We're all in this together till 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."
