Alec Baldwin's new weekly MSNBC talk show was suspended for two episodes after the actor was videotaped using an anti-gay epithet against a photographer during a New York street encounter.
The cable channel didn't specify the reason it yanked Friday night's Up Late with Alec Baldwin from its schedule this week and next, but the decision came the day after the Thursday run-in.
In a statement on MSNBC's website, Baldwin wrote that he "did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry."

Kerry Washington is known for being intensely private and keeping a tight lid on her personal life.
But the Scandal star, who is expecting her first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha, was more than willing to weigh in on a subject that continues to pique certain fans' interest: her sexuality.
In a new interview with The Advocate, the 36-year-old sounds off on rumors that she's a lesbian, owing mainly to her radio silence on her personal affairs – and despite the fact that she's married to Asomugha.

After Wednesday's U.S. Supreme Court decisions deemed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional and dismissed California's same-sex marriage ban (Proposition 8), George Takei is sharing his thoughts on the historic day.
In an editorial written for the Washington Post, Takei explains that DOMA being ruled unconstitutional ends "ick."
"Whenever one group discriminates against another – keeping its members out of a club, a public facility or an intuition – it often boils down to a visceral, negative response to something unfamiliar. I call this the 'ick'," the 76-year-old Star Trek actor explains.

While today it is common knowledge that '50s screen heartthrob Rock Hudson was gay, in his Hollywood heyday his studio, Universal, went to great lengths to project his image of what was then considered an all-American man.
The actor's agent, Henry Willson, even went so far as to arrange for Hudson to marry Willson's secretary, Phyllis Gates. While Hollywood insiders knew the true nature of the union, apparently – according to newly released transcripts from the archives of a private detective hired by Gates – Mrs. Rock Hudson also suspected as much and confronted her husband about it.

Jason Collins, the professional basketball player who recently announced he's gay, will have no trouble fitting into an NBA locker room, according to one All-Star.
"I'd play with him on my team," Los Angeles Lakers star Metta World Peace told PEOPLE at the Showtime pre-fight party before the Floyd Mayweather Jr./Robert Guerrero bout in Las Vegas. When asked whether Collins would be accepted in an NBA locker room, World Peace's answer was simple: "Of course."
With Collins's historic announcement in Sports Illustrated, he became the first active player in American team sports to publicly announce he's gay. For World Peace, though, the outing wasn't a big deal.

Jason Collins's parents had to change the way they thought about both the past and the future when he told them he was gay – but not in the way that counted the most.
Paul and Portia Collins both say they were shocked at their son's revelation. But they supported him almost from the moment he told them.
"Part of the process, after he told us, was to go home and kind of let it resonate, for the two of us to talk about it," Portia tells Oprah Winfrey in an interview airing Sunday on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
"And on the way home we called him. And on the way home we said, 'We love you.' "
