NBC Talking To Alec
Baldwin About Taking
Over Carson Daly’s Slot??
Carson Daly is currently hosting NBC’s top-rated primetime show so this is probably a good time to break him the news.
NBC is reportedly talking to Alec Baldwin about hosting a chat show that would air around 1:37 a.m. where “Last Call With Carson Daly” is now.
A couple of relevant facts:
1) Baldwin has been hosting an interview podcast titled “Here’s The Thing” for a while now.
2) Baldwin – who has hosted “Saturday Night Live” more times than anyone living or dead – is thick as thieves with the network’s post-primetime czar, “30 Rock” executive producer Lorne Michaels, who also executive-produces “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night” and the fast-approaching “Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.”
NBC is motivated to keep Michaels happy, as SNL currently garners higher ratings than any other scripted NBC show, in late night or primetime.
