UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., April 11 (UPI) -- NBC says it has renewed its U.S. late-night series "Last Call with Carson Daly" for a 13th season.
The announcement was made Wednesday by Paul Telegdy, the network's president of alternative and late night programming.
"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,'" Telegdy said in a statement. "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 newsmakers."
"I'm extremely proud of what we've accomplished with 'Last Call,'" said Daly, who has been at the helm of the show since it started. "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."
"Last Call with Carson Daly" airs weeknights at 1:35 a.m.
The renewal announcement quashes rumors claiming actor Alec Baldwin was in the running for the "Last Call" spot as NBC re-works its late-night lineup.
