Alec Baldwin launches his eponymous weekly talk show on Oct. 14 and announces his A-list first guests.

"I mean, who knows if we survive? ABC's not doing very well. We could get out there, show four or five episodes, and be dead," Baldwin said recently while speaking to The Hollywood Reporter.

The time slot change comes after Baldwin was arrested in New York on Friday for allegedly punching a man over a parking spot. The actor denied the allegations on Twitter.
