Scott Baio is definitely kicking himself right about now.
Anywho, Baio has since reiterated this defense on Facebook as he has written:

Comedy aficionados might have found one of Saturday Night Live's sketches last weekend standing out in their minds — and sadly not because of hilarity.
The sketch in question, in which Louis C.K. plays a grown man who hires a children's birthday clown, bears striking similarity to a short film made by comedian Tig Notaro, leading many to call out plagiarism.
Louis and Tig used to work together; he's an exec producer on her Amazon show One Mississippi. But according to Notaro, that isn't the only connection between the two clips.
Ch-ch-check out both vids AND Tig's open letter (below)!
Sign of a good time!
Additionally, this week's program marks the first time SNL will be live coast to coast! You can watch the hilarity at 11:30 p.m. (Eastern), 10:30 p.m. (Central), 9:30 p.m. (Mountain) and 8:30 p.m. (Pacific)!
In the meantime, ch-ch-check out the promos (above)!
Impersonating Donald Trump just isn't enough!
Speaking about all the sexual harassment allegations floating around O'Reilly, Baldwin beautifully played off Baldwin as O'Reilly and Trump went toe-to-toe on Saturday Night Live in that incredible clip!
And then Baldwin turned around and gave us MORE of The Donald, with another HIGHlarious clip (below)!!!
It wasn't just Baldwin and O'Reilly and Trump, though — Louis C.K. hosted, and delivered an incredible monologue, plus SO many more highlights from the show (below):
The comedy world lost one of their all time greats when Don Rickles passed away on Thursday at the age of 90.
Because the great insult legend had such a profound influence on many of today's comedians, the hosts of late night were definitely reeling over the loss.
Specifically Jimmy Kimmel, who could barely keep it together as he dedicated his monologue to the icon.
Hours after learning of Rickles' death, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host broke down several times as he shared his favorite memories of the man he idolized since childhood. He then presented a "Best of Don Rickles" video montage from his numerous appearances on the show.
Though other late night hosts weren't as close with Rickles, they all shared a story about a brush they had with "Mr. Warmth," which usually included him making fun of something.
On Late Night, Seth Meyers paid tribute to "one of the all time greats" by telling a story of meeting Rickles at
The Trump family officially has ZERO friends in Hollywood!
On Thursday, Scarlett Johansson attended the Women in the World conference in New York where she was interviewed by Arianna Huffington about her activism.
However, the conversation quickly turned into a scathing attack on the President's daughter Ivanka Trump!
Back in March, the Lost In Translation actress hosted Saturday Night Live where she parodied Jared Kushner's wife in a sketch about her having a fragrance called "Complicit."
Apparently, Miz Johannson 100% believes Donald Trump's girl is complicit, in that she doesn't say or do anything against her father's unethical policies!
She told the crowd:
Donald Trump has not been a fan of Saturday Night Live ever since Alec Baldwin donned that furry hairpiece to impersonate the cartoonish politician.
But according to Taran Killam, The Donald didn't understand SNL's humor even before he was in its satirical crosshairs!
In an interview with Brooklyn magazine, the former cast member recalled the fateful night in November 2015 when Trump hosted the NBC sketch show (amid protests) months after announcing his presidential candidacy.
While it's no secret the public was upset over the sleazy politician hosting, Killam revealed that no one behind the scenes was thrilled about it either — Trump himself included!
He remembered of the week Trump hosted:
At least that's what multiple producers think after claiming the Boss Baby star straight up lied in his new memoir!
In the freshly published book Nevertheless, the actor alleged he was misled by producers about the age of his costar Nikki Reed when filming the 2006 indie dramedy, Mini's First Time.
Baldwin claimed he had words with producers after discovering the Twilight actress — whom he engaged in sex scenes with — was only 17 at the time, writing:
