Apparently Tina Fey Is Way More Ready For 30 Rock To Be Over Than We Are

30 rock 041012Turns out that while you have been shedding giant, meatball sub-flavored tears about 30 Rockending this season, Tina Fey has never been more ready for it to be over. This is according to Alec Baldwin, who reveals to Rolling Stone that he himself was ready to leave the show round about Season 5. How coincidental. That’s when I left the show as well. Watching it, anyway.

“It was the low point. Though even anemic 30 Rock writing is still better than everybody else’s writing. I go, ‘I’m going to get the fuck out of here, I’m done,’ because I’m an employee, I don’t have any say. So Season Five ends, and I’m saying ‘Next year, I’m done,’ then I come back, and Season Six is really good, we all had fun again.”

But based on what I hear from Alec and reviews and everyone I’ve ever met, the show got much better again right after I stopped watching it, and we’re all very sad that it’s going off the air. Except for Tina. Because let’s be real — Tina has two kids, ya’ll! And she producers, writes for, and stars in 30 Rock. Tell me that’s not exhausting, and I will have Alec Baldwin tell you differently:
“Tina always had her antenna up. But this year was the first time she came in and laid down on the couch on set, and you could tell, she’s a mom. She’s fucking wiped out.”
Yeah guys, so quit your bitching. This woman is a superstar, she’s tired. Let her go home and take a nice, long, Liz Lemon nap under a few stale pieces of cold pizza. Don’t you think she’s earned that after everything she’s given you? She’s not mad about it, though. Here’s what she has to say about the end of 30 Rock:

“I feel like we made a lot of good episodes of the kind of show that usually gets cancelled. The kind where there’s 20 episodes and ‘only me and my hipster friends know about it.’ That part’s still true. But we made about 140 of them!”

So yeah. Constant mom-related insane sleepiness aside, Tina did and does still really love the show. And she loves you for loving it. But she really does need to go home and get back to a normal life of being besties with Amy Poehler and grooming her daughters Alice and Penelope for their arranged marriages to Archie and Abel Arnett. I’m only half-kidding — I absolutely want that to happen, although I in no way endorse child brides.
