Outspoken liberal actor Alec Baldwin is on the verge of getting his own weekly program on MSNBC’s primetime lineup, Mediaite reported Thursday.
An anonymous source, which the website described as “a senior source in the cable news industry with knowledge of MSNBC’s programming,” told Mediaite that the “30 Rock” star’s as-yet-untitled show is a done deal and would air Friday nights in the 10 p.m. ET slot. Since the show would air on Friday’s primetime lineup, Baldwin’s entrance to the network wouldn’t unseat any of its weeknight anchors.
An MSNBC source told Mediaite “We’re fans of Alec but we’ve got nothing to say regarding this unconfirmed report.”
