Alec Baldwin to host SNL for record-breaking 16th time

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Tonight marks the 37th season premiere of Saturday Night Live, and repeat host Alec Baldwin will helm the episode. The event will mark Baldwin’s sixteenth time serving as host of the classic comedy sketch show, marking a clean break from his tie with Steve Martin, who before tonight, had also hosted fifteen times.

Also high on the list of frequent hosts are John Goodman (who has served as host some twelve times), Buck Henry (ten) and Tom hanks (ten). Dave Grohl has been a musical guest a total of ten times, though with “Nirvana” early on, then “Foo Fighters”. Paul Simon has hosted 3 times, been a musical guest 8 times, and been a host and musical guest only once.

As for Baldwin’s best character performances, Pop Eater gives notable mention to his Pete Schweddy role on NPR’s Delicious Dish, his out-of-line Boy Scout leader “Canteen Boy,” and his elf-busting Christmas time parody of his Glengarry Glenross character Blake.

    Alec Baldwin was awesome on SNL last night. He and Christopher Walken rank as my husband and I’s all time favorite SNL hosts. The bit with Steve Martin had us rolling with laughter. Going to be a great season with all the politics going on!
