Alec Baldwin has a new talkshow called Up Late with Alec Baldwin that’s coming to MSNBC on October 11. It’s got the 10pm timeslot, so I’m not really sure how well it’ll do, but there’s a new preview for it, narrated by 30 Rock‘s Ed Schultz. It’s all very tongue-in-cheek and “funny” – read the copy below if you can’t be bothered to watch the video:
“[He is] a man who will address the great issues of our time while keeping his emotions in check.
“Above all, a man who values reason over passion and provides a soothing voice for these troubled times.”
Apparently Alec will be hosting interviews on the show and covering current events, and he’s been given the freedom to talk about “just about anything”, so this could get a bit interesting… especially considering Alec’s tendency to get a bit over-the-top.
Will you tune in? I don’t have a TV (EVERYTHING CAN BE STREAMED ONLINE, OKAY?) but I might give it a look, just to see what’s going on.
