Description

Baldwin discussed current events and past experiences with various guests from news programs, politics, and the arts. The show used a multi-camera set-up. The set was fashioned after a New York City diner, and Baldwin conversed with his guests over coffee while sitting in a corner booth.[3]

The show began its run while the host was in the midst of a two-year contract with MSNBC's production arm, Universal Television.[4] In an interview with The Daily Beast, Baldwin stated, "I'm going to do it for a year, and then we'll see what happens."[5]

On November 15, 2013, MSNBC announced that Up Late would be suspended for two weeks starting with that night's show after Baldwin received criticism for allegedly using an anti-gay slur while interacting with reporters.[6] Baldwin denied the specific wording of the insult, though he still released an apology for the outburst.[7]
