Don't worry, Carson Daly -- NBC isn't done with you yet.
The network announced Wednesday that it will renew "Last Call with Carson Daly," the 1:35 a.m. talk show that rounds out its late-night offerings, for a 13th season.
Funny timing, that. The renewal came on the very same day that media were digesting a report that NBC is in talks with former "30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin about possibly taking over Daly's slot.
Only cynics would assume that giving Daly the thumbs-up now has something to do with trying to smooth things over after the Baldwin thing leaked out. Because NBC clearly has no problem with seamlessly transitioning its late-night TV hosts. (Jay Leno, white courtesy phone please.)
