Alec Baldwin is getting a talk show!

The cable news network MSNBC has announced that Up Late With Alec Baldwin will start airing on Fridays at 10 p.m. in October.

Baldwin has been polishing his interviewing skills (the question-asking part, that is) on his popular Here’s the Thing podcast since 2011.

“After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I’ve developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented, and engaging people in every imaginable field,” the actor, a two-time Emmy winner for 30 Rock, said in a statement. “I’m grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television.”

“I’ve been talking with Alec for a while and can’t wait to bring his personality and eclectic interests to MSNBC,”   said Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC. “He’s got such passion for ideas and what’s going on in the world. He’s going to be a great addition to our line-up.”
