Last Call with Carson Daly: NBC Late Night TV Series Renewed

Last Call with Carson Daly renewedCarson Daly and his staff can relax much earlier this year. Last time, NBC waited until August to renew Last Call with Carson Daly for season 10. They’ve now renewed the program for season 11 some five months earlier.

Here’s the press release from NBC:


UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – March 15, 2011 – NBC has renewed its late-night show “Last Call with Carson Daly” (Monday-Friday, 1:35 a.m.-2:05 a.m. ET) for an 11th season in 2011-12. The announcement was made today by NBC’s Rick Ludwin, Executive Vice President, Late Night & Primetime Series, and Nick Bernstein, Vice President, Late Night & Primetime Series.

“I am excited to continue with what we are doing here at ‘Last Call,'” said Daly. “We give our viewers something unique and interesting every night to watch and I am very proud of that.”

“‘Last Call’ is enjoying its best season yet and its ratings are up,” said Ludwin. “We’re pleased it’s going to continue.”

Daly has recently been tapped to host NBC’s upcoming reality competition show “The Voice,” premiering on Tuesday, April 26 (9-11 p.m. ET).

“Last Call” has garnered acclaim for its gritty documentary style, innovative format, and rock ‘n’ roll vibe. This season, Daly pushes the “doc” style even further, by focusing not only on compelling and interesting stories but the storytellers as well.

Daly remains a trendsetter when it comes to introducing new musical talent on his show and “What’s Next Now.” “Last Call” is currently paying tribute to “Women Who Rock” this week with interviews and performances from Florence + the Machine, among others. The show also features in-depth interviews with Oscar-nominated directors David O. Russell and Danny Boyle, as well as the cast of “Jackass 3D.” Fans can also look forward to upcoming episodes from the South by Southwest Festival.

“Last Call with Carson Daly” is produced by Universal Media Studios. Stewart Bailey and Guy Oseary continue as executive producers.

    I have watched some episodes. Once Carson got out of the talk show look and doing nightly comedy bits like everyone else, Last Call is better…and better for Carson. It’s now a documentary-style magazine show with celebrities and new talents. It has a quick edge to it with effects. Different show than before. It’s an improvement. Surprisingly, NBC doesn’t repeat the show on their cable networks or put full episodes online.

    Seriously, I didn’t even know he had a show currently. Like I stated in some other posting, I think it was back when Conan lost his job on NBC due to Leno-ism that the last time I knew of Carson’s existence was back when Total Request Live ended. I remember that week it ended most of the girls in my class were very upset, I never understood the show to begin with. I mean I got the whole idea of introducing up and coming singers but I don’t see where it was really a fantastic kind of show that needed your undivided attention when you could just hear the people on the radio or see them on a talk show. Then again we do have that idol show now, so I suppose anyone can be easily amused now a days. I might take a gander at this show at least once, I don’t watch NBC at all unless I miss the news on CBS which is rare but it happens.
