It's true that Alec Baldwin recently confessed to a bit of a suicidal streak, but those dark nights of the angry-voicemail-leaving soul should have a little more to redeem them on the bright shining day after his first Emmy win for 30 Rock . Shouldn't they? Or are we to trust last Friday's haunting 20/20 exchange with Diane Sawyer — the darting eyes, the professed disinterest in his own life and that earnest eagerness to shuffle off show business's mortal coil? While we hope we never have to find out, Baldwin's almost overnight shift in fortune suggests that someone up there is looking out for him. Like, you know, his publisher. Either way, Alec, don't retire; without you, Tina Fey really does have nothing but an eternity of Sarah Palin jokes to look forward to. [ABC ]
