All the “talk” continues to be about NBC’s late- night lineup.
Now that Jimmy Fallon is set to take over “The Tonight Show” from Jay Leno, NBC is dealing with the rest of its late- night lineup, specifically “Last Call with Carson Daly.”
Daly’s talker has flown under the radar for 12 seasons. Now NBC is reportedly in talks with Alec Baldwin (“30 Rock”) about possibly taking over that half- hour.
Baldwin signed a two- year overall deal with the network late last year, on the eve of “30 Rock” wrapping up. He has a lot of past with the network, as he has hosted “Saturday Night Live” a record 16 times.
Baldwin also has a weekly podcast, “Here’s the Thing,” that sees him interviewing celebrities.
Seth Meyers is rumored to be next in line for “Late Night,” Fallon’s current gig. Lorne Michaels (“Saturday Night Live”) will exec produce “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” and could also do “Late Night” because of Meyers. Would he also take on a Baldwin “Last Call?” Michaels brought Baldwin to “30 Rock,” and kept bringing him back to “Saturday Night Live.”
Daly also hosts “The Voice,” so don’t feel too bad for him if he’s out.
