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?

You who think that Alec is funny and insightful should be ashamed of yourselves. He is an awful human being. This guy is a darling of the media, so he gets a pass. Hell!!! His brother Stephen has been abusing us with bad movies for decades now and no one seems to be pissed, but me. They are all abusive people, but Alec is the worst in my opinion.

Why does this belligerent, talentless, angry, homophobic, child abuser get airtime? 66% of the readers so far think that he is funny and insightful. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your crotches. I am sure that the people on the receiving end of his abusive tirades do not think that he is funny or insightful.

Why? You don't know? Did it blow right by you? You are kidding- right? He is an Obama Liberal! That gives him a free pass! Yes- hard to imagine but it really is that simple! That's why! Paula Deen is not a Democrat tis the reason for the double standard! You know what happens when one side "breaks it off" in the other side? Then it's payback time & it hasn't started. ..... but that's not here nor there in the abusive Baldwin life!
