It is so hot that Alec Baldwin just got a chubby over it. That’s because ABC is bringing back Match Game and he is hosting it. According to Vulture, the 10 1-hour episodes will air this summer at 10p after Celebrity Family Feud and $10,000 Pyramid hosted by Michael Strahan. The only thing ABC is missing is Hollywood Squares at 7p and then it would be a ’70s game show fan’s wet dream.
Actually I really like that we are getting a full night of game shows, and I hope that the networks will consider doing it in the regular season too. Lord knows that it will do better than what they have now for the most part.
UPDATE: ABC just confirmed the news about Match Game returning on June 26th. In the press release, they reveal that Baldwin is foregoing his salary. Why? He says that, “Hilaria and I are thrilled to donate this fee to arts related charities. And we look forward to having a lot of fun.” Normally, I don’t like him, but this one little notion completely changed my opinion of him. I wish more celebrities who don’t need the money would do things like this. Don’t you?
Alec Baldwin, a known Liberal, says he is willing to endorse the very conservative Donald Trump, if he does one thing for him when he gets elected. If Trump wins, he wants to become the Ambassador to Spain. Why? Sounds like he doesn’t want to live in a country where Trump is President and wants to Government to pay his way out. Which is a good deal for him, but what about the rest of us?
When you read the headline that Alec Baldwin was arrested, you’d immediately think what it is for and you would be wrong. According to In Touch Weekly, a source told them that the Emmy winner was taken in for â€œriding his bike the wrong way and didnâ€™t have ID on him.â€ Another source told them he was calm during the incident while another said he went ballistic.
Who knew riding his bicycle the wrong way without any ID was an arrestable offense? At least he didn’t pull a Reese Witherspoon and say I don’t need no identification because you should know who I am. Although considering that he is one of NYC’s most infamous residents, they should know who he is right away and he shouldn’t need any ID.
Can you think of a more embarrassing way to get arrested? The only thing I think that might top this is this guy I had a crush on in college got arrested for indecent exposure at Mardi Gras. How does that happen? The same way you get busted for riding your bike against traffic.
In the last few weeks, both Alec Baldwin and Shia LaBeouf have both gone very public to announce that they are retiring from public life. Their request for privacy during this time has been such a joke that Conan O’Brien turned it into one on his TBS show tonight.
Part of me wants to the two egomaniacs to see this and realize how ridiculous they have been. But then the other part of me knows if they did, then they might actually think this is a good idea and go ahead and do a farewell to public tour.
MSNBC and Alec Baldwin have decided to part ways according to Variety.
The hot-tempered actor was suspended from his Friday night show on the news network a week and a half ago for alleged homophobic slurs he used against a paparazzo. Today it is heavily reported that he will not be coming back when the suspension is over.
Personally, I doubt that that is the real reason why his show is no longer happening. When the big wigs heard about his tirade they were probably ecstatic because now they had their way out of his very low-rated bomb that wasn’t getting the publicity they thought they were going to get.
Oh well, I guess this frees up his time so that he can have more encounters with the paparazzi on the streets of Manhattan! Either that or now he can finally run for office, something he has been threatening to do for a while.
