For one day, everybody was really excited about the idea of a late night talk show for Alec Baldwin. Then NBC ordered a 13th season of "Last Call with Carson Daly."
"We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Carson who has broken the mold, creating his own unique late-night show format with ‘Last Call,'" blurbs NBC Alternative and Late Night President Paul Telegdy. "The show has become a platform for emerging artists – and Carson’s engaging interview style has made it the place for insightful conversations with an eclectic group of new stars as well as established icons and news makers."
Adds Daly, "I’m extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished with ‘Last Call.' I love coming to work every day and having the opportunity to collaborate with this incredible team. We are always looking to give viewers something new and fresh that they can’t find anywhere else on television. I’m grateful to have the chance to continue doing what I love the most."
Theoretically Baldwin could get the "Late Show" slot after Jimmy Fallon takes over "The Tonight Show," but for now, it appears that that was merely a one-day pipe dream.
