Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, have a paparazzi problem again, one that on Monday had him running to the store - literally - and her pulling out of teaching yoga classes for a week. Baldwin on Sunday reportedly had an incident with a New York Post reporter and photographer that ended with the actor and photographer both going to the police to file harassment claims against each other. Baldwin's publicist Matthew Hiltzik said in a statement to CNN and other outlets Monday that the photog's claims of racist and otherwise disparaging comments, detailed in a Post story , were "absolutely false," specifically noting that the claim of racist remarks was "one of the most outrageous things I've heard in my life.'"

"30 Rock" has finally come to an end. We'll no longer have a chance to check in on Liz, Jack, Tracy, Jenna and poor, hapless Lutz. But that doesn't mean we can't keep our amazing memories of the "TGS" gang going through endless requoting and YouTube clip-watching. There will be no shortage of debate as to the greatest moments of "30 Rock's" run, but here is our humble attempt to point out five moments that captured just what made "30 Rock" one of the funniest shows on TV. Tracy Jordan as unstoppable stabbing robot Times critic Robert Lloyd described Tracy Morgan's character, Tracy Jordan, as the show's id.

Confession time: I used to have a surly, defiant attitude from the time I arrived at an airport until I headed for a taxi at my destination -- not as boldly obstreperous as Alec Baldwin, but occasionally annoying. I blame Osama bin Laden for this. Once upon a time, flying was fun, occasionally luxurious, even romantic. Then came Sept. 11, 2001. After the attack on the Twin Towers, as we all know too well, flying changed. Airports become high-security zones and airplanes became like schoolrooms with stern teachers -- flight attendants -- enforcing niggling little rules.

Someone get Alec Baldwin a pillow! The “30 Rock” star scored himself yet another Emmy nomination for lead actor in a comedy with his turn as slick network executive Jack Donaghy. So after a steady stream of nominations (and the occasional win) for his portrayal, how does the 54-year-old celebrate such recognition? “I sob into my pillow and say, 'But do they really mean it?' ” Baldwin joked to The Times. "It's really a muffled sob. And then I go to the mirror and once more ask, 'but do they really mean it?
