In fact, Alec Baldwin tried to bargain with NBC to extend the series.
“I offered NBC to cut my pay 20% in order to have a full 7th and 8th seasons of 30 Rock,” the actor tweeted. “I realize times have changed.”
In the compacted 13-episode season, the characters are getting plenty of action.
Liz Lemon is actively trying to conceive a child with her boyfriend (James Marsden), Jack Donaghy is divorced and dating, a lot, and Kenneth (Jack McBrayer) and Hazel (Kristen Schaal) are living together. (OK, Kenneth’s still not getting any action — he’s determined to protect his virtue.)
“30 Rock” returns tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC. Will you be watching?
