Looks like Alec Baldwin might not be getting an NBC late-night show anytime soon.
"Last Call With Carson Daly" has been renewed for a 13th season, NBC said today, despite reports that former "30 Rock" star Baldwin was in early talks to host a late-night show for the network, most likely in the 1:35 a.m. slot inhabited by "Last Call."
"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,'” NBC's president, alternative and late night programming Paul Telegdy said. “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."
“I’m extremely proud of what we’ve accomplished with ‘Last Call,'” Daly said. “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.”
