Alec Baldwin to Host Primetime Program on MSNBC?

by at . Comments

Alec Baldwin may be making a return to the small screen.

The actor - who has remained mostly quiet since taking fire for a homophobic rant directed at a reporter for The Daily Mail - is nearing a deal with MSNBC to host a primetime news program on Friday nights.

According to Mediaite, the untitled series would air at 10 p.m. EST and, of course, give Baldwin a platform to air his outspoken liberal views.

The Emmy winner, of course, has a longstanding relationship with NBC Universal, having starred on 30 Rock and hosted Saturday Night Live a number of times.

Says an MSNBC insider of the story: “We’re fans of Alec but we’ve got nothing to say regarding this unconfirmed report."

But assuming a deal is made and Baldwin does get a new show... will you tune in for it?
