Watch Alec Baldwin’s Murdoch-Joking SNL Promo

Watch Alec Baldwin's Murdoch-Joking SNL Promo

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.
