Alec Baldwin Talk Show Could Land At ABC Daytime Or Late Night!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Reports have surfaced that ABC is close to a deal with Alec Baldwin for a talk show based on his hit podcast “Here’s the Thing With Alec Baldwin, where he interviews celebrities and current newsmakers.

The deal isn’t officially done yet, but production is slated to get jump started next week.

As to the plans of where the talker would live on the network, rumblings are that it could be in a late night slot following Jimmy Kimmel Live, replacing thenews series, Nightline. There is also talk that it could wind-up as part of ABC’s daytime lineup which houses:The View, The Chew, and GH.

Baldwin is a three-time Emmy winner, and got his start as Billy Aldrich on the NBC soap, The Doctors.

So, what do you think of an Alec Baldwin talker, in particular if it should land in the day-part on ABC? Comment below!

I’m fine with the show in Daytime, as long as it doesn’t get General Hospital canceled! I don’t trust TPTB at ABC! I haven’t forgotten how they virtually canceled All My Children and One Life To Live simultaneously!

I think Alec Baldwin could do both his talk show on ABC and SNL on NBC because i don’t think there will be any direct conflict.However him been on SNL could get people tuning into his talk show and vice versa.

Okay, so we already have THREE liberal nighttime hosts, Colbert more than the other two who hate our country and spew venom at our president, we have the Yentas on the View who despise ANYTHING positive Donald does, SNL is RUINED by the HATE that is broadcasted LIVE every week or so, lead by Baldwin, now your going to hand him a talk show? I know, I dont have to watch any of this BUT where is the show that supports the conservative views? Where is the live comedy show that is funny and not mean? Where is the talk… Read more »

Where is the show that supports conservative views? It’s called Fox News.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Actually, Fox regularly features contributors with perspectives from both sides of the political spectrum…which in and of itself makes it a unique news network! But having said that, I believe Timmm was referring to all the other tv genres that provide precious little to no recognition or representation of the conservative values/opinions held by roughly half of the country who comprises a vast segment of any potential viewing audience. The personal ideals of such individuals are either completely ignored or mercilessly bashed because they don’t comport with those espoused in liberal Hollywood. I don’t necessarily desire to see “equal time”… Read more »

CNN and MSNBC also regularly feature guests that represent both sides, so Fox News is hardly unique in that area. Late night talk show hosts and comedians have been lampooning the president for years, be it Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, and so on. They made a cottage industry of telling Bill Clinton jokes, and many do to this day, and as a proud liberal, I had absolutely no problem with that. We didn’t go around whining and telling everyone how persecuted we were. It was fair game then, just like Donald Trump is fair game now. And particularly nowadays, when… Read more »

Touche’, Timmmbo! This guy is a no-talent hack who is only being rewarded for espousing his far-left political views and performing that nauseating SNL parody which mercilessly mocks our president in a totally one-note, unrealistic manner—Quite frankly, Darrell Hammond did a much better and more honest job of portraying Trump in a way that wasn’t just a blatantly mean-spirited hatchet job on the NYC real estate legend who became president. Needless to say, neither of those things makes him remotely qualified for hosting a talk show. (Have you ever heard the audio tape of his really lame attempt at launching… Read more »

@Jaybird….Thank you, right back at ya….and Merry Christmas!!!! You know, when we speak of Clinton impersonators, the one who stood out for me was the tragically departed Phil Hartman….he truly captured the deeply sleazy, lascivious nature and good ‘ol boy insincerity of 42. Those particular qualities jumped out front and center to me from the very first time I set eyes on the genuine article, and Hartman just absolutely nailed them…it was uncanny! However, Hammond quite capably stepped up to the challenge of replacing his SNL counterpart in the role, albeit in a far less sinister and more comedic, tongue-in-cheek… Read more »

I am not a Trump fan, but Dio mio, enough. As a democrat I am beginning to deplore my own party. I have eyes and ears and a brain, a fair one. I do not like how negative both the media and liberals are towards Trump. He was condemned and sentenced without a trial. I did not appreciate the lewd remarks, but the people elected him. Let him rule. It is not forever. He deserves as much as Clinton? Bush, Reagan and Obama, the fake, scaredy cat peace-seeker. Even as a democrat I can see what good he is doing.… Read more »

There’s no class these days is the apt description for the current President of the United States! Forget talk shows and comedians; it’s amazing how supporters can see ANY class in Trump other crude, rude, vulgar….an infant who spends more time tweeting than reading, who sides with neo-nazis, who sides with an accused pedophile against the women who accused him…it’s a freaking upside-down country right now! Abnormal and amoral is the new norm!

Bring on Alec and others to help us laugh through this twisted reality!

Shay
Guest

Even Jay Leno, uber-lib that he is, managed to be pretty fair-handed when it came to lampooning politicians of both parties. As far as I’m concerned, the only really notable exception to that rule was when he quipped about Dick Cheney’s medical condition, since heart problems are no laughing matter for anyone. That was definitely not cool….

Shouldn’t surprise you that a comment like that would be made, Steve.

It’s just part of the delusional thinking…like voting for a man in Alabama who is an accused pedophile. They vote for THAT man for office, LOL, but Alec is, in their eyes, unqualified to host a talk show.

Disagreeing with the president or the policies of his administration does not equal “hating our country.” It’s called democracy. If people want to live in a country where everyone publicly agrees with the leadership, move to a dictatorship or police state. As for where there is non-political comedy, that would be Jimmy Fallon’s show. And his ratings are way down because of it. There have plenty of articles published on the subject.

Shay
Guest

Just as disagreeing with the previous occupant and the policies of his administration did not equal “racism,” but the left never failed to conveniently pin that term on each and every criticism the political right offered up.

Fallon does do political humor but much less than the other two and you are right, his ratings do suffer. It shows you how mean and angry Americans can be.

ABC has been telling us fans of One Life To Live and All My Children that there is no room for their re-boots on daytime! So now, there is suddenly room for Alec Baldwin’s show on daytime??? BS.

AJ
Guest

Has ABC said there’s no room for OLTL & AMC? Or have they been silent because they canceled these shows and have no interest in bringing them back? Not trying to be mean, but ABC will never add another soap again and unfortunately GH will be in the soap graveyard too one day.

sadie soaper
Guest
sadie soaper

According to various reports from the “Save AMC & OLTL” Facebook page, ABC is “actively searching for an online partner” to re-boot OLTL and AMC because ABC only owns three hours of the daytime slots (The View, The Chew, and General Hospital).

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

It’s way more expensive to air a soap opera than a talk show. That’s why they went with talk shows, cooking shows, etc. And that’s the same reason those soaps probably won’t ever come back. Unless they decide to change the format, cut them down to half hour format. At this point, they’re not lucrative for the networks. That’s why the ones that remain are holding on by a thread.

Jacqueline Kennedy Simmons

I don’t believe that he have a spot during the daytime hours because all three of those shows The View ,The Chew and General Hospital are all hit shows. I can not see ABC getting rid of any one of those shows to take a chance on an hour with him. He’s funny but that’s all. I know I would not be interested in looking at a new talk show. So a good spot for him would be after Jimmy Kimmel and before my early morning news.

There is the 2-3pm hour. The network gave that hour back to the affiliates. In the Philadelphia area we see Millionaire and Right This Minute in that hour.

Syndicated time is tough to get back from affiliates. Affiliates need that time so they can make money. And in a good chunk of the country GH is on at 2PM (with syndicated fare on at 3PM)

Steve

ABC doesn’t have to take the time back from affiliates. The network has a syndication group which released the Katie Couric and Tyra Banks debacles. If the Baldwin show goes daytime, it could be syndicated and carried by all the ABC owned/operated stations.

I am just as dissatisfied as the next person regarding the state of our country, but I see this as just another platform for Baldwin to spout off about Trump like he does on SNL.

We do not need ANOTHER talk show. All it is, is talk, talk, talk. Very few have remained beyond one year. The most recent is the Harry Connick, Jr. show because it is more of a variety show and he doesn’t get political. I see this Alec Baldwin show as a huge mistake.

But as talk show host, dummo ..

At least he won’t be seated in the Republican partly as an accused child molester, so yah a talk show host could work for him, would have to see it before I could judge it.
but daaaammm he does a great Trump and I would not be happy if SNL lost him because of ABC ..

We don’t… I am a fan of Alex Baldwin’s portrayal of the current U.S. president on Saturday Night Live. I like Baldwin’s politics as well, but I don’t think much of him as a person.

Ditto, ditto, ditto Jamesj75! It truly is astounding. To think that there are people who actually ever supported him, let alone still do, is unfathomable. And he endorsed an accused pedophile just to add on to his already stellar (I say that with full sarcasm) record on morality. (Let us not forget there are good people in the neo-nazis). At least the accused in Hollywood (who are dropping like flies) were either fired or quit, embarrassed, mortified…but they admitted their guilt! Moore is protesting…he’s “innocent” a “victim”.

That’s one thing I left out in my original post: the way the current U.S. president gives these continual “dog whistles” to white supremacists and racists.

ABC only has three hours available during the daytime since they foolishly, under Brian Frons, gave an hour back to affiliates in order to make room on the owned and operated stations for the syndicated ‘Katie’.

I’m sure there is a lot of name calling, arguing and out-of-control behavior behind closed doors in many families. Alec’s known to have a temper and he admitted he was wrong (in the midst of an ugly divorce and despair that he felt Kim B was turning his daughter against him and telling her to avoid his calls). However, his ex-wife Kim Bassinger’s father said he loved Alec and it was a shame he had anger issues…emphasizing they weren’t physical but verbal (with his family.) Does that make it right or do I condone it? No. But it was a… Read more »

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
