Network ABC has pulled off Alec Baldwin’s talk show from Sunday nights due to the star’s recent arrest.
According to a buzz, The Alec Baldwin Show won’t be airing at 10 pm on Sunday’s and instead has been shifted to the less desirable slot of 10 pm on Saturday night. The news on the run states that the show will discontinue on the Sundays after 18th November. Now on that night slot, ABC will be running the repeats of reality show Shark Tank and other such programs. The Alec Baldwin Show will kick off on Saturdays from 8th of December.
The news has been streaming after the alleged arrest of the star over an assault and harassment case for the parking spot in the New York last weekend. After the news has been in the air for the week, the actor took it to twitter stating that he hasn’t punched anyone because of a parking space.
The actor tweeted, ‘Normally; I would not comment on something as egregiously misstated as today’s story. However, the assertion that I punched anyone over a parking spot is false.’ He also added that ‘I wanted to go on the record stating as much. I realize that it has become a sport to tag people was many negative charges and defaming allegations as possible for clickbait entertainment’.
He firmly made it clear that he hasn’t punched anyone and the statements are not true. But the arrest has supposedly affected the show and moved it to the Saturday’s slot. The program had also seen a fall in the ratings this season. The premiere episode in late October just attracted two million viewers that that fell to 1.5 billion viewers for its second episode. The actor also said that he does not think the show will last too long and might be dead just after four or five episodes.
