Total Demonstration Live with Carson Daly

CarsondalyCarson Daly’s move to jumpstart production on his late-late-late night NBC talk show hasn’t earned him many fans within the Writers Guild. Now, armed with word that Daly will be taping a musical guest tonight on an outside stage, the WGA is throwing a quickly-organized protest outside the NBC lot in Burbank.

An as-yet unnamed band will tape a set on the stage — near NBC’s California Gate on Alameda Avenue — for “Last Call with Carson Daly” around 6 p.m. (Another band taped a segment last night for “Last Call” as well.) A WGA spokesman said striking writers and Guild supporters will be there to protest Daly’s disappointing decision to cross the picket line.”

Expect more than a few scribes to imitate Jimmy Fallon’s famous — and less than flattering — take on Daly from “Saturday Night Live.”

“Last Call” is set to return next Monday. Show airs at 1:36 a.m. weeknights.
