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.

Everyone from fellow comics to his boss, Tina Fey, had some words for Tracy Morgan following his recent rant against gays during a stand up gig: it wasn't funny.
"I'm glad to hear that Tracy apologized for his comments," said a statement from Fey who is the creator of NBC's "30 Rock" on which Morgan co-stars. "Stand-up comics may have the right to 'work out' their material in its ugliest and rawest form in front of an audience, but the violent imagery of Tracy's rant was disturbing to me at a time when homophobic hate crimes continue to be a life-threatening issue for the GLBT Community."
Morgan apologized Friday for his remarks which included saying he would stab his son to death if he ever discovered he was gay. FULL POST
