    Anyone catch this after the Oscars? They showed the pilot with Jerry Seinfeld and Kate McKinnon. It is now available On Demand or on ABC.com.

    It's a "Dick Cavett style" talk show modeled from the 60's and 70's. Alec devotes about 30 min each to each guest. A nice breath of fresh air from the 5 minute interviews that we usually see on Late Night now.

    Very similar to David Letterman's show and it seems like they filmed them both at the same time.

    Looks like it's getting mixed reviews but I am enjoying it. Not sure when the next episode is airing.

    I enjoyed it also.
    He's a good interviewer, as long as he knows his subject.

    Not only are they recycling TV shows, now they are recycling the hosts.
    Steve Harvey, Michael Strahan, and now Alec Baldwin. Don't these guys have enough gigs and make enough money?

    I get so sick of seeing these people on so many shows when you flip through the channels.

    He should interview Trump. Seriously, I think the Pres would go for it.

    Should Alec do it as Alec or Trump?

    Interesting - didn't he have an oh-so-short-lived slot on MSNBC a couple of years back? If he couldn't score with that audience, what makes ABC think he wouldn't be a polarizing figure to a general audience, even within his subject of expertise?

    Funny you didn't bring up Seacrest; I would think, if your point were just about "too many gigs, too much money", that he would be your go-to whipping boy...:shrug:

    Up to him. But if Alec acts like Don, then maybe Don could impersonate Alec. I mean, we're sort of just about at that point now anyways...

    That would be the most insane Presidential interview of our time. Than again, an insane and surreal interview sums up this era pretty well.

    I loved when he left a lovely voicemail for his daughter calling her "rude thoughtless little pig." He seems like a good guy.

    His "Here's The Thing" podcasts from WNYC are actually really good, he does a lot of musicians.

    I enjoyed it. Not sure if he will only have entertainers as guests.

    Don't know if anyone read Alec Baldwin's autobiography, but at the end of the book, he had a list of actors who he enjoys watching. Some of them would make interesting guests....Sean Connery, Chow Yun-fat, etc.
