Put that TV show down, Alec Baldwin! TV shows are for closers!
Oh, wait, what are we talking about, of course Alec is a closer!
In fact, the 30 Rock star has just closed a deal to host his own talk show on MSNBC!
Lifetime liberal Alec is a perfect fit for the network, which often leans left as a counterbalance to FoxNews. And TV was a great fit for Alec too!
The steady income and stabile setting of a talk show must be appealing to the new dad! He said:
"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. I’m grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television."
Sounds like it may be less politics, and more- well, everything! Up Late with Alec Baldwin will air at 10 PM Eastern time starting in October!
