    This Feb. 4, 2017 photo released by NBC shows Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump in the opening sketch of "Saturday Night Live," in New York.

    Alec Baldwin will shatter his own record when he hosts "Saturday Night Live" for a 17th time this weekend, and all eyes will be on President Donald Trump's Twitter account, NBC News reported.

    The "30 Rock" star has popped up so frequently to play Trump this season — appearing in 10 out of 13 episodes — that it's easy to forget he's not actually a cast member. But Baldwin was a favorite on "SNL" long before he first donned the wispy blonde wig in October's season 42 opener.

    The actor has not emceed a full episode since Sept. 24, 2011 when he leaped over Steve Martin in their two-man tie presiding over 15 shows each to set a new hosting record.
