But in the meantime, enjoy some teaser/bonus clips below:

Fred Armisen based his pick off a conversation he had with Baldwin himself. During a dinner recently (we get it Fred, you and Alec are friends), Fred said Alec spoke almost reverently about a sketch he did when he hosted in 1991 called "Cyrano." In this parody of the literature classic, Alec as Cyrano, attempts to woo a lady using the help of his friend Christian, played by Tim Meadows. Meadows' character knows all the right things to say, but is not himself a lady's man because he has an insanely ugly nose.
It's a great pick and a classic sketch...which unfortunately cannot go online due to music clearance issues. So instead enjoy another instance where Baldwin tackled lady troubles with 1993's "Gap Girls 2."
Resident Snooki impressionist, Bobby Moynihan knew exactly which Baldwin sketch was his most memorable, saying "I remember watching 'Some Big Shot' during rehearsals and thinking that this sketch was awesome. Alec and Jenny were both so great in it. And who doesn't love jokes about handjobs?"
From the finale of Bobby's second season, "Some Big Shot."
Second year cast member Paul Brittain (best known for his Johnny Depp and James Franco impressions and his character "Sex" Ed Vincent) knew exactly which Baldwin sketch was his most memorable. Citing a love for Will Ferrell's "Inside the Actors' Studio," Brittain named Baldwin's appearance in the sketch as his all-time favorite. Adding, "Charles Nelson Reilly is such a funny choice to be on that show, and then Alec's performance, using so few actual words, is just hilarious."
From Baldwin's April 2001 show: Inside the Actor's Studio - Charles Nelson Reilly.
Kenan Thompson, entering his ninth year as a cast member at SNL, wasted no time making his pick for most Memorable Baldwin sketch, saying "it's gotta be Schweddy Balls, I mean, right?" And if Kenan's endorsement isn't enough, Ben & Jerry's recent decision to honor the sketch with it's very own ice cream flavor certainly indicates that Schweddy Balls is as classic Baldwin/SNL as it gets.
Fun fact: Even though "NPR: Schweddy Balls" is probably the most remembered, Baldwin's appearance marked the ninth time the NPR sketch was seen on SNL.
All week long in the Backstage Blog, the cast here at SNL will be sharing their picks for most memorable Baldwin sketches to commemorate his record 16th time hosting SNL when he returns this Saturday for the season premiere.
Up first is Andy Samberg with his pick: "Red Ships of Spain."
