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.

Even by his hyphenate standards, Alan Cumming has been pretty busy lately.

The two-month anniversary of the NHL lockout passed without any talks between the league and the NHL Players' Assn. NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly painted a grim picture when asked by The Times where matters stand and what the next step will be. “I think the process is stalled right now. We are done with making proposals and we don't have any new ideas,” he said Thursday via email. “I guess we will wait to see if the PA has anything to offer that would get us interested in returning to the table.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said Wednesday that he's not sure the players union has been treating the Sept. 15 expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement as an urgent deadline for reaching accord on a new deal, and suggested that the idea of losing part or all of training camp hasn't given the union a sense of urgency.
