    This would've been right up Howard's alley.

    Even though the late, late night ratings are negligible, I don't think Howard wants to face the numbers he would get for a show of his own these days. He likes that he can talk bullshit numbers for his Sirius audience and blame ratings for the shit talent show on others.

    Amazing, after all the wild shit Alec Baldwin has been involved in over the years with his vulgar attacks on everyone everywhere, NBC has no problem installing him as a host.

    But at the same time, we are all suppose to hate Mel Gibson because he has made vulgar attacks on people. I guess it does pay to be an insider, you can do no wrong! :facepalm:

    If Howard is asked about this he'll do what he always does - lie. He'll claim NBC wanted him but he turned them down because it was beneath him, he was too busy, or one of the other fake excuses he uses when he's rejected or not invited. Then he'll keep talking about how great he WOULD have been in that job, even though he hasn't been entertaining in years.

    What you don't understand is that it's OK when Alec rants because it's about the "villains" the libs think are deserving of contempt. Alec has issues but he's in with Lorne and the rest of the haaaaamptonites and he at least isn't as unpleasant to see on tv as Howard.

    Alec Baldwin is a Grade A dickhead...but for some reason a lot of people still like him. Makes absolutely no sense to me. Anyone who leaves that kind of voicemail for their daughter is a vile human being. Hopefully, one day he really gets called out on his shit.

    I've listened to some of Alec's podcasts & he's actually a pretty good interviewer. And he's certainly more pleasing to the eye than a certain creepy pelican who shall remain nameless...

    Oh, good catch. Alec is in with the SNL franchise, Lorne Michaels, et al....SNL wants to own Late Night. Howard kisses their ass and constantly has a parade of SNL stars into his show [those that will consent to do the Stern show]. Howard is desperate to be in that franchise, but all he can get is the gong show and a bestiality show for his wife.

    Plus he's quick on his feet, that is one thing Wiggy cannot overcome, he does not come off as "spontaneously funny" unless he has someone feeding him lines :jj:

    Beth has to be wishing she would have spread for him during that interview she had with him.

    this

    While I do think he's at least 1/3rd asshole, I think Baldwin would be a great choice for the gig.

    more this

    "wishing she would have"? She fantasized about Howard's death during that interview; she basically had her ankles pinned behind her ears for Alec.

    This is 100% on the mark. When he blurts shit out of left field its usually Benjy scribble or something else prewritten. You know when Hank isn't reading and ACTUALLY trying to be spontaneous by when he gets derivative and repetitive, reverting to his tired old knock knock joke standbys ..

    "He's so hot. Oops is this thing on?"
    "era... I'm Ted Kennedy"
    "Let me do some quick math"
    (Ben and Ray stern)..
    ...you know the rest.

    Baldwin can't fake being humorous and the new 12:30 show will be originating in LA.

    Sir Alec can probably handle the Carson Daly show, 30 minutes without having to be funny.

    Holy shit, Alec Baldwin is actually less likeable than Howard.... if that's possible.

    NBC has no clue about talent. I'm surprised they never hired Robin for a (failed) project.

    Alec Baldwin is a liberal, so that's okay, particularly at NBC.

    How about Tracy Morgan, which is even more glaring. If he wasn't an Obama supporting friend of Tina Fey his career in show business would be over due to his gay monologue last year

    I mean, we are talking about a network whose Nightly News anchor (Brian Williams) is such a hard core democrat that he dropped out of college to campaign for and than work in the Carter whitehouse.

    Nevertheless Alec could be a good host, he's always been good on snl and as a talkshow guest, plus the guy probably has a pretty big roledex.
