The news of "30 Rock's" demise has been greatly exaggerated.

Alec Baldwin, who ruffled NBC's peacock feathers by saying the sitcom would end after next season, tried to smooth things over Thursday in a Huffington Post blog.

"Gosh," he began. "I want to take the opportunity to state that although my days on network TV may be numbered, I hope '30 Rock' goes on forever. Or at least as long as everyone involved desires. Next year hopefully won't be the last."

Two-time Emmy winner Baldwin had stated Monday at a dance gala that the show's sixth season would be its last.

NBC did not return a call for comment. Matthew Hiltzik, Baldwin's spokesman, said that Baldwin, 53, has "frequently discussed, in a much broader sense, what he would do once his contract is over at the end of next year."

Meanwhile, Baldwin's "30 Rock" co-star Tina Fey is expecting her second child, The Associated Press reports. Her publicist confirmed that Fey announced the news while taping an appearance of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" on Wednesday and that the actress is about five months pregnant. Her "Oprah" appearance is scheduled to air next week.
