    Alec Baldwin said in an interview with CNN on Monday he would return to "Saturday Night Live" this fall to continue his impersonation of President Donald Trump.

    "Yeah, we're going to fit that in. I think people have enjoyed it," Baldwin said.

    The 17-time "SNL" host's impersonation led to the surge in viewership of the late night show, which had its most-viewed season in 23 years. Baldwin's original stint on the show was meant to last until the election. Trump has repeatedly criticized "SNL" on his Twitter account.

    Baldwin was in New York City promoting his new film, "Blind," which comes to theaters July 14.
