Alec Baldwin Sets 'SNL' Hosting Record, Defends 'Schweddy Balls'

Dario Cantatore/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- On Saturday night's season debut of Saturday Night Live, Alec Baldwin broke Steve Martin's record for hosting SNL when he walked on stage for the 16th time.

Baldwin announced the feat in his opening monologue, prompting Martin and Seth Rogen to walk onstage and ask the 30 Rock star to provide a urine sample to make sure he hasn't used any "steroids or performance-enhancing drugs" to take the title.

Baldwin also addressed the controversy stemming from "Schweddy Balls," the new Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor named in honor of one of Baldwin's SNL characters. The product has drawn protest from a family group called A Million Moms, which believes the "vulgar" flavor's double entendre is inappropriate for store shelves.

Baldwin addressed the group, saying "If you don't like Schweddy Balls, Ben & Jerry's has a new ice cream flavor, just for you.  It's called 'Go Fudge Yourself.'"
