NBC renews Carson Daly’s ‘Last Call’ for 13th season

NBC sorta put the kibosh on speculation Alec Baldwin was taking over Carson Daly’s 1:35 a.m. timeslot, announcing Wednesday it had renewed “Last Call with Carson Daly” for a 13th season.

 On the other hand, NBC also called Daly television’s unofficial music tastemaker, and insisted the 1:35 a.m. weeknight show continues to “push the boundaries of late-night television.”

There’d been speculation Baldwin, the former “30 Rock” star who interviews celebs on his weekly podcast “Here’s the Thing,” would get a late-night slot on NBC’s slate — presumably Daly’s, The New York Times reported this week.

NBC already has announced Jimmy Fallon is taking over Leno’s “Tonight Show” timeslot next year, but the network has waffled, in re what happens to Fallon’s current post-“Tonight” time period.

Daly’s show, in which he interviews the likes of Kimbra and fun., is the youngest-skewing weeknight late-night series on an old-guard Big Three broadcast network, NBC noted Wednesday.

Daly, of course, also hosts NBC’s singing competition series “The Voice” in primetime, which is back for its fourth season.
