Alec Baldwin to host SNL for record 17th time, smashing previous record


Actor Alec Baldwin is scheduled to host “Saturday Night Live” next month for the 17th time, in an appearance that will break comedian Steve Martin’s record for most times hosting the late-night comedy show.

Baldwin's impression of President Donald Trump has garnered rave reviews and plenty of late-night laughs, as he played Trump throughout the 2016 presidential campaign and beyond.

The actor’s portrayal of Trump even provoked a response from the president himself via Twitter, with Trump calling "Saturday Night Live" "unwatchable." Baldwin responded by tweeting back, "Release yor tax returns and I'll stop. Ha."

Just tried watching Saturday Night Live - unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad

Release your tax returns and I'll stop.

Trump did appear on “Saturday Night Live” in Nov. of 2015, but that was before Baldwin began performing his hilarious spoof of him.

Baldwin will host the show on Feb. 11.

Can this meal kit change your view of convenience cooking?

I’ve been more than a little incredulous about meal kits. My biggest complaints have been that they are expensive and not environmentally friendly. I’m not paying $8 or $12 per serving for a meal unless someone else is cooking it, and those bulky boxes weighed down with ice packs are so heavy to deliver to my doorstep. When I opened a recent...

Potato salad with a side of family politics

When I was growing up, there were really only two kinds of potato salad: Your mama’s and my mama’s. Whether vinegar-, mayonnaise- or mustard-based, warm or cold, my mama’s was always better than your mama’s. More than one family meal has been tarnished by the argument. No matter how tiny the sweet onion was minced, your baby...
