All-Baldwin Friday Morning continues here at Defamer with the above clip of the alienated, shouty dad's highly anticipated appearance on today's episode of The View, a segment so exhaustively previewed in the media that its actual broadcast was doomed to anticlimax. Still, even if we feel we've read every obligatory, publicly contrite word before, our role in any celebrity's televised Redemption Tour is to patiently listen and nod along as if we're hearing it all for the first time, lest crisis managers decide such desperation moves have lost their effectiveness and deprive of us future talk show mea culpas.

BONUS! The LAT exhaustively chronicles Baldwin and Basinger's tumultuous relationship. Don't miss the bit about how the actress used a Luna bar to interfere with her ex-husband's "therapeutic involvement" in their daughter's life.
