On Monday, Alec Baldwin reportedly implied that his critically acclaimed sitcom "30 Rock" will conclude its run in 2012, but on Thursday the actor sang a different tune.
In a blog posted on The Huffington Post, Alec wrote: "Gosh. 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. Kenneth can run the network. Jenna will get her own talk show. Tracy will become Mayor of New York. Then resign to go raise exotic reptiles. And Lemon will go do... just about anything she sets her mind to. Here's to five more seasons."
We caught up with Alec at the New York Philharmonic's spring gala benefit on Thursday, where the actor appeared as a guest.
"This is not a classical program," Alec said, referring to the presentation of Stephen Sondheim's Company that the New York Philharmonic sponsored that night. "And they've got none other than Neil Patrick Harris, who is the darling of the theater crowd these days. He's so talented, so it's going to be great."
Jon Cryer also starred in the production and he, like Alec, has had to deal with cancellation news surrounding his hit show "Two and a Half Men." Cryer sent out a glimmer of hope for the show's possible return when we asked the Emmy winner if he saw Broadway in his future.
"I don't know how much free time I'm going to have," Cryer replied with a grin. "So we'll see."

The red carpet was alive tonight at the Food Bank For New York City's Annual Can-Do Awards Dinner hosted by "Today"'s Al Roker.
The Food Bank is New York City's major hunger–relief organization working to end food poverty in the city.
Even when dealing with the serious topic of hunger awareness, everyone was also focused on Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer's questionable future on "Today."
When asked to go on the record about if he knew anything regarding his "Today" co-anchors leaving, Al Roker said, "I got no record. No one uses records anymore, it's all on mp3."
"Today" anchor Hoda Kotb said "All I know is that we have padlocks with combinations on both [Matt and Meredith]'s dressing rooms. Nobody's going anywhere. I will shackle myself to Meredith if need be."
Rachael Ray said, "I think they should stay. We love them. Are they going to leave Al all alone?"
Watch the video to see more of what the attendees had to say about Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira's potentially leaving "Today."
The "American Idol" studio was just as stunned Thursday night as when Casey Abrams feared going home. A clear frontrunner in the judges' eyes, Pia Toscano's rave reviews didn't win over the voters.
Without a lifeline, viewers got the final word and Pia was eliminated from the talented pool of competitors. The judges used their one allotted save this season on Casey Abrams. Jacob Lusk and Stefano Langone also landed in the bottom three, but received enough votes to progress forward in the competition.
Watch the video for Pia's goodbye performance. "American Idol" returns to Fox on Wednesday night.

Donald Trump has gone on record criticizing the way America is being run on his road to possible presidential candidacy, but the outspoken creator of "The Apprentice" is engaging another issue that he feels is just as imperative; President Barack Obama's place of birth.
Trump was with Meredith Vieira on the "Today" show this morning and said bluntly that he doesn't believe President Barack Obama was born in the United States, despite his camp advising him to move on to other topics.
"Three weeks ago before he started, I thought he was born in the country and now I have a much bigger doubt," the real estate mogul said emphatically. "His grandmother in Kenya says he was born in Kenya and witnessed the birth, okay?"
Trump and Vieira virtually have a stand off on the subject as he states Obama's certificate of live birth is "not even close" to being an equivalent of a U.S. birth certificate that the "Today" host mentions.
In the end, Trump declares that he hopes Obama can add some validity to his residence status with an authentic birth certificate. Until then however, the "Celebrity Apprentice" star made one glaring proclamation.
"I hope he can [show his birth certificate]. If not, then he's pulled one of the greatest cons in the history of politics."
Listen to more of Trump's stunning statements in the video.
