It is the often-forgotten member of the NBC late-night lineup that stayed clear of the network’s recent late-night shakeups. But quietly, Last Call with Carson Daly will reach a decade on the air after NBC announced today that it is renewing the daily 1:35 AM-2:05 AM show for a 10th season with Stewart Bailey returning as executive producer. Additionally, Alex Coletti (MTV’s Unplugged) as the new executive producer of the network’s annual NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly.
“I really feel that Last Call has hit its stride,” said former MTV star Daly. “I am glad Stewart is coming back because he is incredibly smart and he owes me 35 dollars. Likewise, Alex is great, he produced MTV’s ‘Unplugged.’ He assures me we will have electricity for the New Years Eve show.” Coletti’s credits also include the halftime shows for Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXV. Coletti’s production company also produced the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular for NBC.
