ABC Orders Alec Baldwin Talk Show

Series to Debut After The Oscars This Sunday

ABC has officially ordered a new talk show titled “Sundays with Alec Baldwin,” which will open with a sneak peak following “The Academy Awards” this Sunday beginning at 11:35 pm ET/10 pm PT. The show will feature one-on-one conversations between Baldwin and a range of pop culture figures, modeled after his WNYC podcast “Here’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin.” And the initial guests are Jerry Seinfeld and “Saturday Night Live’s” Kate McKinnon.

“I’m excited about this show and grateful to ABC for taking a chance on me in what is, admittedly, a crowded field,” said Baldwin. “I’ve enjoyed doing my podcast for WNYC and look forward to the challenge of doing a show on camera.”

Eight additional episodes of “Sundays with Alec Baldwin” debut later this year on a yet-to-be determined day and time.

Baldwin previously hosted the late-night talk show “Up Late with Alec Baldwin” for MSNBC in 2013, but the show was pulled after five episodes.
