‘Carson Daly’ Renewed for 13th Season

'Carson Daly' Renewed 13th Season

With all of the hubbub on the Peacock’s latenight lineup in recent weeks, one show is holding steady. NBC announced today that “Last Call with Carson Daly” has been renewed, offering the 1:35 a.m. program a 13th season.

“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Carson who has broken the mold, creating his own unique latenight show format with ‘Last Call,'” said Paul Telegdy, topper of alternative and latenight programming at NBC. “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.”

The news comes a day after speculation spread about an Alec Baldwin-hosted talker coming to NBC in latenight (eventually but not imminently) and a week after the future of the 12:35 a.m. slot became unclear, thanks to Jimmy Fallon’s ascension to  “The Tonight Show” in place of Jay Leno next year.

“Last Call,” which was launched in 2002, features a documentary-style feel and focuses on Daly’s first and foremost passion: music. Peacock has leveraged Daly’s music-driven skillset in primetime as well, having him host singing competish series “The Voice.”

“I’m extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished with ‘Last Call,'” said Daly. “I love coming to work every day and having the opportunity to collaborate with this incredible team.”

“Last Call” is produced by Universal TV. Stewart Bailey and Guy Oseary are exec producers.
