Alec Baldwin’s talk show on ABC returned to the air on Saturday night.
Baldwin, banished from Sundays at 10pm after his arrest for allegedly punching someone over a parking spot, gave the hour over to Sarah Jessica Parker. I watched it, it was good. SJP is articulate and smart, so that helps.
But back on November 4th, Alec scored 1,469,000 viewers. On Sunday, he dropped to 1,053,000. More than 400,000 people left– for football, for “48 Hours” or a “Saturday Night Live” rerun, each of which had three times Alec’s number. Alec’s show was the lowest rated network show on Saturday night.
I guess ABC will just burn off what’s left of the series and call it a day.
SJP, by the way, noted that she’d been with Matthew Broderick for about 26 years, and plans on growing old with him. It was so lovely. I remember when they were dating in the early 90s and sang the Mary Tyler Moore theme song at a party. They always looked like the real thing. Bravo!
This is NOT a clip from that interview. But this one is from Jerry Seinfeld and SJP on “Comedians Getting Coffee in Cars.” I loved it. PS Why isn’t Jerry hosting the Oscars?
