Not even Alec Baldwin’s recent arrest in New York City was enough to pique interest in his new show — it finished last among Sunday’s prime-time offerings.

Fans of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” may love Mr. Baldwin’s impersonation of President Trump, but they currently aren’t willing to follow him over to ABC.

“The Alec Baldwin Show” tanked over the weekend with a 0.3 Nielsen rating (1.51 million viewers), which was matched by CW’s “Charmed.”

CBS’ 60 Minutes, for comparison, tallied a 1.2 rating.

The network ratings tailspin for Mr. Baldwin came two days after he was arrested in the Big Apple after fighting over a parking spot. He was briefly taken into custody after allegedly punching a man in the face.

“I wish him luck,” Mr. Trump deadpanned after hearing the news last Friday.
