NBC isn’t the only network that has an Alec Baldwin fix. ABC is picking up a third season of Match Game hosted by the Saturday Night Live funnyman.

“Alec’s quick wit, charm and star power set the stage for an unadulterated and can’t-miss hour of television each week on Match Game,” said ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey in a statement. “The series is an integral part of ABC ‘Fun & Games,’ and I’m glad to have it and Alec back.”

The renewal also comes with a two-year first look deal with Baldwin’s production company, El Dorado Pictures. Baldwin’s team will develop scripted and unscripted projects under the ABC Studios banner.

“Alec Baldwin is one of the most prolific, creative people in the entertainment industry,” said ABC Studios President Patrick Moran in a statement. “We’re looking forward to channeling that creativity for our studio.”

Match Game first launched on ABC last summer. It was used as a midseason replacement in April.

Baldwin earned an Emmy nomination this year for hosting the show.
