ABC’s ‘The Alec Baldwin Show’ Grabs Rare Primetime Berth for Interview Series

Alec Baldwin has landed primetime real estate on ABC for an interview show to air Sunday nights at 10 p.m. in the fall.

“The Alec Baldwin Show” had a test drive (as “Sundays with Alec Baldwin”) on March 4, when it aired as part of ABC’s post-Academy Awards telecast package. ABC’s scheduling decision marks a rare example of a talk show in primetime on a Big Four network. But the Sunday 10 p.m. time slot has been such a challenge for ABC in recent years that there’s not much to lose by giving Baldwin a shot.

The last unscripted talk-based program to air on broadcast TV was NBC’s experiment with “The Jay Leno Show” as a Monday-Friday talk-variety vehicle in the fall of 2009. That show ended after five months, setting off the battle between Leno and Conan O’Brien for the helm of the “Tonight Show.”

People with a network show don't usually get dispensation to appear regularly on another network.

1. He has enough juice to negotiate this into his contract if he wants to keep the side gig

2. Alec Baldwin had a little talk show on MSNBC was it?

Then he went into a rage at a reporter, called him derogatory gay epithets, and was immediately terminated.

Good luck, Mr. Baldwin. You know they'll be coming for you, bro.
