Alec Baldwin explains tweets about 'leaving' NBC

Actor tweets: 'leaving NBC just in time'

Headline Goes Here

WASHINGTON - Alec Baldwin says he's still a fan of NBC despite tweeting angrily last week that he was "leaving NBC just in time" after a "Today" show crew camped outside his apartment building.

What Baldwin is saying today

In Washington to push for arts funding, the actor said Monday that a big draw of joining the cast of "30 Rock" was working at NBC.

Baldwin says he'll finish a seventh season of "30 Rock" but that it's slated to end next year. He says NBC needs to redo its lineup to get out of ratings trouble.

"I am not a fan"

Baldwin says NBC has the best programming legacy, but he's not a fan of "Today." He says there's always ABC's "Good Morning America" or CNN's Anderson Cooper at night. The "Today" crew stakeout followed the arrest of a woman on charges of stalking Baldwin.

Baldwin says his next project will be a Broadway play.
