Alec Baldwin hosts the season premiere of Saturday Night Live tonight and already his promo is edgier than the Emmys.
Here he jokes about his missing moment at the Emmys: when he learned that Fox was going to cut a reference to the NewsCorp scandal in the taped opener, Baldwin dropped out of the sketch. Good for him on two counts – standing up to censorship and dodging any involvement in that disastrous Emmy show.
Here’s his different Murdoch joke in a promo with Bill Hader. Check back Sunday for the best clips from the show.
Baldwin is hosting for the 16th time, a record – just in time for Ben and Jerry’s release of their new Schweddy Balls ice cream, a homage to Baldwin’s classic SNL sketch.
