Carson Daly to Return to NBC for Last Call

by at . Comments

So much for those Alec Baldwin talk show rumors.

Just days after rumors swirled that the ex-30 Rock star might be taking over for Carson Daly at 1:35 a.m. on NBC, the network has renewed Last Call for a 13th season.

"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 President of Alternative and Late Night Programming Paul 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 news makers."

There is still plenty of late-night turmoil at the network, of course.

Jay Leno will be out as Tonight Show host in 2014. Jimmy Fallon will be in.

A replacement will therefore be needed at 12:35 a.m., with such names as Seth Meyers and Joel McHale allegedly leading the rumored way.
