President Trump left after being sworn in on Friday

Actor Alec Baldwin will return to host "Saturday Night Live" for a record-setting 17th time this February in a show certain to feature his ongoing impersonation of President Trump, NBC announced Monday.

Now, Baldwin will have a chance to play a number of different characters for an entire episode of SNL. Ed Sheeran will be the musical guest.

Baldwin was previously tied with Steve Martin for the "SNL" hosting record, but demand is high for the former "30 Rock" star, who began portraying Trump this past year. Goodman, meanwhile, is close on their heels with 13 hosting gigs to his credit.

In recent weeks, TV critic and also President Donald Trump has called SNL "not amusing", "the worst of NBC", and "bad".

Adams was able to return to the game with his ankle heavily taped; Allison was able to finish the game despite his injury. With the injuries at receiver, the Packers might have to promote Max McCaffrey or Antwan Goodley from the practice squad.

On Monday morning, SNL tweeted a picture showing Alec Baldwin and musical guest Ed Sheeran scheduled for February 11. Baldwin's is a portrayal that Trump has called "boring and unfunny" and believes it "can't get any worse". Considering just this weekend Kellyanne Conway declared they would not be shared with the public - even after the audit Trump had long alleged was the thing that was stopping him from releasing them - looks like we'll be seeing a lot more of Baldwump over the next four years.

"The White House response is that he's not going to release his tax returns".

Fans may have missed his Trump impersonation, but that made way for cast member Beck Bennett's shirtless portrayal of Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
