He said, "I will tell you one thing. And that is our show next year is our last year of the show. Our contracts are expired in 2012, and Tina Fey is gonna have a big career directing films and writing. She's going to be the next Elaine May. She'll be great."

Last year, Alec, 53, revealed he will quit the show in 2012 after his contract expires as he would "rather do other things".
