'30 Rock' Ending In 2012, Alec Baldwin Says

Jack Donaghy has one more season to get to the top of Kabletown.

Speaking to NY Magazine's Vulture blog on Tuesday, the "30 Rock" star said that the Emmy-winning comedy is entering its final season, and would end in 2012.

"I will tell you one thing, and that is our show next year is our last year of the show," Baldwin said. "Our contracts are expired [in 2012], and Tina [Fey] is gonna have a big career directing films and writing. She's going to be the next Elaine May. She'll be great."

"30 Rock" has been a smash with critics, but has struggled with low ratings. Fey, the show's star, head writer and producer, wrote in her book "Bossypants" that she thinks her impression of Sarah Palin has hurt the show's audience.

Baldwin has already said that 2012 would be his last year on the show -- and as an actor; he's a prominent progressive and talked openly about wanting to run for political office. Fey already has a number of hit movies; "Mean Girls," with Lindsay Lohan, has been her biggest hit, while "Baby Mama" and "Date Night" have done well.

Before Baldwin retires from acting, he'll star in the big screen adaptation of the broadway hit "Rock of Ages."
