SNL's Trump, Alec Baldwin, to Host for Record-Breaking 17th Time

“Amazing, incredible” news: Saturday Night Live‘s resident Donald Trump impersonator, Alec Baldwin, is set to outright host the sketch series for a record-breaking 17th time (or 58th time, per #AlternativeFacts).

On the heels of the news that Kristen Stewart will host the show’s next outing, on Feb. 4, NBC has announced that Baldwin — who was conspicuously MIA from this weekend’s, post-inauguration telecast — will formally lord over Studio 8H the following week, on Feb. 11.

Making his second appearance as musical guest that night will be Grammy Award winner Ed Sheeran, whose third studio album, “÷,” will be released March 3.

    This makes me happy…or not. Alec Baldwin makes SNL funny again whether he’s playing Donald Trump and everything else.

  2. Chris says:

    I know it will never happen but I’d love to see canteen boy again, Adams got a new Netflix movie to promote. Still one of my favorite Baldwin sketches. Or he should just be trump the entire episode that would be amazing and really piss off the tangerine toddler.

  3. Beth says:

    I am so bored of hearing about Trump and anything related to him

    • Anne says:

      Well then you really ought to take a four year nap. And we can’t stop talking about him, the risk of becoming complacent is too high.

  4. Philip says:

    It’s interesting that Alec is officially hosting this February after spending most of this season as a featured guest performer!

    Isn’t there usually 3 episodes in February for sweeps. If so, I wonder why they haven’t announced the third host.

    What is the new episode for the remainder of the season? Does anyone know?

    • Chris says:

      They usually release them month by month unless I’m mistaken so we won’t know the rest of the season until it’s closer. Ther s probaly 6 or 7 left after Baldwin depending if the do 20 or 21 this year.

    • Brian says:

      There hasn’t been 3 episodes in February since 2012. There was only a single episode in 2014 and 2015.

  5. JScout says:

    This is good news. I missed Baldwin on this week’s show, though Putin open was funny. #AlternativeFacts. What a way to start an administration, with lies. Not really surprising considering he and his people lied all the way through the campaign.

  6. Scott says:

    Get over it crybaby liberals Trump won that lying B Hillary lost . It a time to grow up and put your big person pants on .

    • Jeremy says:

      You’re the only one talking about Hillary, snowflake. We’ve moved on to talking about our brand new sociopath of a President!

    • Cas says:

      Lol lying. You realize that Trump lies all the time right? Or what do you call alternative facts?

    • Chris says:

      You also realize all republicans did for the last 8 years was complain about Obama

    • Mark says:

      Trump lost the popular vote by 3 million. If 80,000 people in 3 states had stayed home, he wouldn’t have won the electoral vote.

      • Scott says:

        Like i said stop crying . And Obama did nothing right for eight yeas except screw everything up oh yea he also put a man in the women’s rest room . He’s right up there with JFK who put a man on the moon .

        • Chris says:

          No I’m gonna use my constitutional right to speak up. He put a man in the women’s room ? What ?

        • LADY_in_MD says:

          Just wanted to point out this quote from your beloved Trump

          “There’s a big move to create new bathrooms” for transgender people alone, Mr. Trump said. “First of all, I think that would be discriminatory in a certain way. It would be unbelievably expensive for businesses and for the country. Leave it the way it is.”

          • DL says:

            To be fair, “the way it is” also means allowing states like North Carolina to pass bathroom bills, which will eventually go to the SCOTUS with Trump’s replacement for Scalia. Assuming no other vacancies, they might still strike it down bills 5-4, but those affected in the transgender community will still have to wait for that to actually happen.
            .
            As to Scott’s point, no one wants predatory men in the women’s room, obviously. But transgender women are women, not men, and whether it happens now, or four, eight, twelve years from now, their rights to use a restroom of their choice will eventually be assured. So you may as well just get used to the idea.

        • Mark says:

          Did I trigger you? Go back to your safe space, you precious snowflake.

        • TV Gord says:

          He killed bin Laden absolutely right!

        • Mr. Sunshine says:

          Uh, you do realize he tried working with Republicans who wouldn’t bend or even try to be conciliatory in any way.

      • Mike says:

        If you remove liberal California (which has 10% of the county’s population) and New York and he wins by 6 million votes.

        • arial2 says:

          So you’re saying 10% of the population should not have been allowed to vote in order for the orange one to win the popular vote? You do know that state lines are artificial constructs, while people are real? This election just proved “one person, one vote” is meaningless in the U.S. Now THAT’s what should worry you.

    • LADY_in_MD says:

      Tell that to the man who is constantly on twitter whinning about a sketch COMEDY show or a magazine or actress who he doesn’t like.

    • Anne says:

      Even if Hillary won, sketch shows have been poking fun at and criticizing elected officials for decades. So if she had won, they’d be taking jabs at her too.
      .
      It’s just easier with Trump because he’s already a charicature

  7. Joey Padron says:

    Glad Alec will hosting the show again. He’s funny on SNL.

  8. Fan says:

    Alec is incredibly overrated!

  9. Tony Lang says:

    Baldwin scored himself the most secure job in the world. Absolutely no chance they’ll be running out of lampooning material until long after he’s vacated the White House.

  10. sunshine says:

    The only audience the once popular SNL has anymore is the far left so of course they have to pander to them and this is appealing to the kale eating crowd.

  11. Slick Willie says:

    I wonder if Alec will be doing any impressions of him beating Kim Basinger?

  12. badgerly says:

    I’m glad Alec will be back. He should be on every week, because no doubt there’ll be something to skewer every week, from President Dickhead. Starting every repeat in the off-season, with a ” Trump Update”, would be a good idea, too !!

  13. mary stan says:

    I cannot get it out of my mind, a video a while ago, on the news: Baldwin drunk crawling like the worm on the floor. This worm is teaching us moral? America really lost its values?

  14. DarkDefender says:

    And it’s going be YUGE!
