Alec Baldwin is used to throwing punches, but he just took a huge uppercut from ABC.
The network has announced that his poorly rated talk show is being bumped down to a less desirable time slot. The Alec Baldwin Show, which had aired at 10 p.m. on Sundays, is being replaced with repeats of Shark Tank. His show, which features pre-taped interviews, is headed to 10 p.m. on Saturdays.
It's believed that the move is a result of the show's poor ratings, and not a response to Baldwin's arrest last week for allegedly punching a man over a parking spot in New York. (Page Six)
- He has enough going on. He doesn't need this show.
- The last episode drew an audience of only 1.5 million.
- Do ABC execs really want to make him angry? They wouldn't like him when he's angry.
