Dammit, Alec. Do it on Netflix or Amazon.

For me, Alec Baldwin is a acting genius.  Impeccable comedic timing and great dramatic actor.  However, in real life, he seems like an extremely angry individual.

Once you get an infestation of Baldwins, it's hard to eradicate all traces of it, and flare-ups are common.

Dude, I'm an extremely angry individual in real life - I can relate. If you're not angry, you're not paying attention.

Not sure who will be awake to see a Sunday night show at 11:30pm.

I'm referring to Baldwin as a whole, not his anger towards the current administration.

I'd check it out. He's an astute interviewer. I don't always listen to his "Here's the Thing" podcast I check in when he has interesting guests and it's often a decent listen.

The very short-lived talk show Alec Baldwin had was very good. (It was canceled after one of his breakdowns.)

He had Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood talking about making 2001: A Space Odyssey.

In the jogging scene, Lockwood was strapped into his seat while eating and the food that slipped off of his fork fell up.

He has an army of children to support.  His wife must really enjoy being pregnant, she's on #4 in about 5 years.

I like Alec on SNL and the new Match Game and glad he picked Sunday late night for his show. I'll be watching it "on-demand" come Monday evening. I can barely stay up passed 10pm these days.

What else do any of these night guys have when trump is gone? isn't that bee chicks whole show?

His talk show on WNYC was terrible. He's terrible at conducting interviews. Doesn't know how to ask questions that produce long answers and how to get people talking for a while without him saying much.

Gosh, if only I could make a recording of it in some manner.

Nonsense.  His podcast is one of the few places I can go to find an in-depth discussion about something.  He's very respectful of his guests, and it's obvious that he really does the research and reads the books.

I didn't say he was disrespectful. He just asks too many questions that can be quickly answered resulting in him talking too much. He's no Terry Gross.

He behaves like an ass with far too little provocation.  How soon till he goes off on somebody in an un-PC rage fit and has to go sit in the corner of the no more TV show room?

I like a lot of his work, but I couldn't imagine wanting to hang out with him or listen to his POV for long.

/they SHOULD make the Baldwin Family Thanksgiving a pay per view event though
