Looks like Alec Baldwin isn't the only one ready for 30 Rock to end. The show's seventh season premiere posted sub-Community ratings last night, grabbing only 3.4 million viewers. Also sinking in the numbers was ABC's submarine-themed thriller Last Resort, which lost 18% of its audience, and CBS's Elementary, although that series did claim victory in the 10 PM hour. It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure out that Last Resort may be in trouble.
