Baldwin jumping "30 Rock" ship?

Nooooooo. Despite his questionable parenting skills, "30 Rock" would totally suck without Alec Baldwin propping things up.

But "Extra" is reporting:

“Extra” has learned that while pre-taping Friday’s edition of “The View,” Alec Baldwin apparently tells the hosts that he wants to get off of “30 Rock” and doesn’t want to do television anymore. Also during the interview, Baldwin apologizes to his daughter again for his recent outburst on her cell phone voicemail.
UPDATE: Request denied, apparently. NBC is saying that Baldwin will stay on the show. It's a weird situation: If he stays, he could hurt the show. If he leaves, let's be honest, there is no show. And given "30 Rock's" marginal ratings, all of this has to have NBC's brass wishing they'd held off on renewing the thing early.

Uhh. Maybe he should have decided that before the Will Arnett episode; it could have ended differently. Of course, it still could, what with the impending fireworks fiasco.

Alternately, maybe Alec could just realize he as a good thing going and not be an ass. Let's see Judah Friedlander unleash some ninja expertise on him or something.
