Baldwin’s talk show will return to the air on Dec. 8 in a new time slot, Saturday, 10 PM, following the end of college football. Saturday is considered a graveyard for burning off shows that are destined for cancellation.
The decision comes after four very low-rated episodes of The Alec Baldwin Show on Sunday and a controversy surrounding Baldwin’s arrest last week over assault allegations. In its most recent outing, The Alec Baldwin Show drew 1.47 million viewers in Live+same day and a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating.
On Sunday, Dec. 2 The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Holiday Special will air at 10 PM; and on Sunday, Dec. 16, The Sound of Music will air at 7 PM
