I know... to each his own.
But I'm with you on this. To waste 22 minutes and get one or two clever lines from Alec Baldwin (which is the only dependable comedy each week) is not worth tuning in for regularly.
I find the dumb page to be an insultingly unreal character whose dialog and delivery are comic book, Tracy Morgan and posse to be offensive and boring (time for FF with the remote), Jane Krakowski woefully under-utilized, and funny situations with Tina Fey (aside from Baldwin interactions) too few and far between. Even the occasional Rachel Dratch bit seems more like a "contractual obligation" rather than something to look forward to each week.
I love Alec Baldwin, his character, and his recently honed comedic skills, but the show as a whole has exited from my "series" list. I've given it enough opportunities to entertain me consistently and it hasn't come through.
