Alec Baldwin’s MSNBC Show Is Really Happening

As rumored, Up Late with Alec Baldwin will air on Fridays at 10 p.m. and starts next month. “After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I’ve developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented and engaging people in every imaginable field,” said the new dad and anti-paparazzi warrior in the announcement. “I’m grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television.” The podcast in question is actually pretty good and has featured varied guests including Lena Dunham and New York Times editor Jill Abramson. Although they share a temper, Baldwin is not quite Keith Olbermann — in the good or bad sense — so this thing just might work.
