    Gawker is a bit tabloidish, but they're reliable.


    Holy crap, this means Alec will tie Steve Martin's hosting record! Another weird stat in a season that was chock-full of them!Surprised

    Wow, what an incredible way to round out, what I think was, a pretty impressive season. (Betty White this week, and now Mr. Baldwin for the SF)


    I wonder if there will be higher ratings with Betty White hosting. I only hope they get a good musical guest for this final episode (No more Disney acts with such a high caliber host). Has he ever hosted a season finale before??

    Nope. He's never hosted a season premiere, either.

    If I may ask, what exactly do you mean by that?? Just how may of the episodes this season did you think have weird stats in them?? I don't mean to bother you with it, but honestly, I'm intrigued.


    Thank you for your time,

    I've enjoyed just about all his episodes, including the last one, but I'm disappointed by this. I would've liked someone different, but I guess after all the disasters (January Jones, Ryan Phillipe, Gabourey Sidibe) this season they wanted to go with a sure thing.

    Sigourney Weaver for longest span between hosting, Barkley for an athlete hosting twice, and Drew Barrymore for most episodes hosted by a woman is all I can think of.

    Don't forget the youngest male solo musical guest (Bieber) and the oldest host ever later this week.

    Two people from two TV shows both hosting in the same season (30 Rock, Mad Men) or has that been done before?

    I have been trying to figure out a musical guest. Someone who has a big summer album coming out.


    Alec is mostly promoting 30 Rock I'm guessing, or is he in a mmovie this summer?


    I wonder if Steve Martin will make an appearance.

    No movies for Sir Alec Baldwin in 2010. He's one of the three (along with Walken and Martin) who Lorne lets host whenever they want.

    Anyone Betting on a Tony Benette Show?

    Walken is still allowed to come Back? After his last Hosting, I would've thought he'd been banned.

    Number one, it's Bennett. Number two, why would they ban Walken?

    Indeed. U2 notwithstanding, when was the last time we had a musical guest born before 1965?
