    It’s not fully baked, not by a mile, because Baldwin has launched with friends, or at least show biz friends, who admire him as much as he admires them. ... Nobody’s neutral about him, and their neutrality will be tested as much as his. The show’s potential will rise or fall in those edgy encounters when they come, and they certainly should. That passion could ultimately be Sunday’s chief asset.

    Sundays With Alec Baldwin doesn’t work without Alec Baldwin, but it doesn’t work with him, either.

    With Seinfeld, Baldwin has an immediate rapport. ... The sophistication of their white-guy discussion of the #TimesUp movement can be summed up in Seinfeld’s sincere, icky, and clueless comment, “Doesn’t this seem like a necessary bowel movement that the culture has to have?” By contrast, the interview with McKinnon was more awkward, and not very successful if you measure it by normal talk-show standards. ... Baldwin has to do all the heavy lifting of moving the chatter along. But when they get to discussing their most famous Saturday Night Live impersonations, the conversation takes off--it yields something new and honest.

    While Baldwin proves a competent enough interviewer, having honed his technique on his WNYC podcast Here’s the Thing, the conversations remained surface-level due to his guests’ proximity to the host. And his exchange with Seinfeld concerning the #MeToo movement was pretty unsettling.

    Baldwin, who had a short-lived talk show on MSNBC in 2013, is a decent interviewer, but the talk never gets too deep or reveals new insights about his subjects. ... Baldwin tries his level best, but the show is too slight to really click.

    This is a reprehensible human being trying to act somewhat normal on tv and failing. His ego always gives him away.
