NBC just pulled the plug on one of its longest-running shows. After 17 years, the network is ending “Last Call with Carson Daly,” Variety reports.
“Daly is stepping away from the series but will continue on as the host of the Orange Room on ‘Today’ as well as the host and producer of ‘The Voice’ for NBC,” Variety reports.
The series launched in 2002 and will have aired 2,000 episodes by the time it wraps, the report notes. “A date for the final episode and a new show for the 1:30 a.m. weeknight timeslot will be announced at a later date,” Variety adds.
Daly is quoted saying: “If you had told me in 2002 I would be a part of the historic NBC late-night family for 17 years, I would have said you were crazy! Hard to believe it’s been so long — 2,000 episodes. It’s time to move on to something new and let someone else have access to this incredible platform.”
