Alec Baldwin made an appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ but not as President Donald Trump. The actor was the butt of a joke in the show’s opening sketch after he was arrested on Friday.
Alec Baldwin is in more trouble: His show is moving to a less-desirable time slot.
ABC has announced that it’s moving poorly rated “The Alec Baldwin Show” from Sunday evenings to Saturdays.
The series will return for new episodes on Dec. 8 at 10 EST/PST, vacating its Sunday slot. In the talk show’s place: “Shark Tank” reruns, “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Holiday Special” and “The Sound of Music.”
This news comes a week after the comic actor was arrested in New York for allegedly punching someone over a parking spot.
This isn’t the first time that a Baldwin-hosted talk show has changed course immediately after its star got in trouble. In 2013, MSNBC pulled “Up Late With Alec Baldwin” for two weeks, and then permanently, after Baldwin was accused of shouting a homophobic slur at a photographer.
