Alec Baldwin has spoken out about getting booted from an American Airlines flight last week, and on the latest edition of "Saturday Night Live," it was American Airlines Captain Steve Rogers' turn...as played by Alec Baldwin.

Alec Baldwin breaks 'SNL' hosting record

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.
