Alec Baldwin’s New MSNBC Series Won’t Be Like ‘The Daily Show’


Alec Baldwin new MSNBC show Up Late With Alec Baldwin may be titled like a late night comedy show, but Baldwin said earlier this week that it definitely won’t be competing with The Daily Show or The Colbert Report. “I don’t think it’ll ever be a show you’d see on Comedy Central,” he told Politico. “We’re not going to go for those laughs. Other people are doing that, and they’re cleaning up in the process. [Jon] Stewart. Bill Maher. [Stephen] Colbert. They dominate. They dominate that world, and I have no desire to compete with that at all.” Baldwin’s show premieres on MSNBC tonight at 10 PM ET.
