Trump fans are over Baldwin’s hot-headed and violent rhetoric and it’s starting to show in the rating. The never-funny actor’s ratings took such h a dive that the Network was forced to move him to a less desirable slot. Baldwin’s recent run-in with the law and arrest didn’t help matters either!
ABC quietly announced on Election Night that “The Alec Baldwin Show” would move from its prestigious timeslot on Sunday evenings to a less desirable Saturday night spot, amid disappointing ratings and negative media attention surrounding the hot-headed thespian.
Repeats of “Shark Tank” will replace Baldwin’s beleaguered talk show on Sunday at 10 p.m. “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Holiday Special” and “The Sound of Music” will also air on Sunday nights. “The Alec Baldwin Show” returns Dec. 8 in its new timeslot — 10 p.m. ET on Saturdays.
Variety – a leading Hollywood trade publication – said “ABC has all but pulled the plug” on the show, pointing to the program’s dismal ratings. Variety noted Baldwin’s show is “one of ABC’s lowest-rated programs” and its last episode only attracted 1.5 million viewers.
“The show has failed to find a significant audience,” Variety’s Joe Otterson wrote.
