This weekend, Alec Baldwin became the first person to host “Saturday Night Live” 16 times, according to NBC.
Baldwin made sure to mention his new record during his monologue opening Saturday’s show, notes New York Magazine. The "30 Rock" star kicked off “SNL”’s 37th season.
Hosting rival Steve Martin stopped by with Seth Rogen to make sure Alec broke the hosting record "without the use of steroids or performance enhancing drugs." (Not a particularly funny bit.)
Before Saturday, Martin and Baldwin were tied for most-frequent host; each had hosted 15 times.
