NBC has renewed the latenight talker’s chatshow for a 10th season. Daly, who came over 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.
Half-hour “Last Call” airs on weeknights, and shoots each episode on location. A majority are taped in Los Angeles, but in other areas of the country as well. Universal Media Studios is producer. Stewart Bailey will return for a second year as exec producer and shares duties with Guy Oseary.
“I really feel that ‘Last Call’ has hit its stride. It took 10 years, but it feels brand new and great,” said Daly.
Added Rick Ludwin, NBC’s latenight topper: “‘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.”
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.”
Coletti’s resume include MTV’s “Unplugged,” Sundance Channel’s “Spectacle: Elvis Costello Meets …” as well as the halftime show for a pair of Super Bowls.
