Daly also hosts Peacock's New Year's Eve festivities
It’s not the last call for “Last Call With Carson Daly.”NBC has renewed the latenight talker’s chatshow for a 10th season. Daly, who came to the Peacock following his duties as host of MTV’s popular midday skein “TRL,” also hosts the Peacock’s New Year’s Eve programming from Times Square. “I really feel that ‘Last Call’ has hit its stride. It took 10 years, but it feels brand new and great,” said Daly. Half-hour “Last Call” airs on weeknights, with most episodes taped in Los Angeles but others shot on location around the country. Universal Media Studios is producer. Stewart Bailey will return for a second year as exec producer and shares duties with Guy Oseary. NBC latenight topper Rick Ludwin added: “‘Last Call’ has been a trend-setter in latenight since it began but particularly in its most recent two seasons. Carson and Stewart continue to give viewers a series that’s distinctive, cool and entertaining.” “Last Call” averages 971,000 viewers. While that aud may seem relatively small, the numbers are misleading: Many viewers are sleeping during the broadcast but record the show on their DVRs. Numbers substantially increase when live+7 figures are added. Also, the net announced Alex Coletti (MTV’s “Unplugged”) will serve as the new exec producer of “NBC’s New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly.” In addition to “Unplugged,” Coletti’s resume includes Sundance Channel’s “Spectacle: Elvis Costello Meets …” as well as the halftime show for a pair of Super Bowls.
