'Last Call With Carson Daly' Strikes Deal to Re-Air on Fuse (Exclusive)
Last Call With Carson Daly is getting a second run on Fuse.
The music network has acquired the rights to re-air NBC's long-running late night series, which will begin rebroadcasting the show the following day with the launch of the 2011 season. New and expanded Last Call content, including interviews and musical performances, will appear on The Madison Square Garden Company-owned net's site, Fuse.TV.
“Last Call is all about discovering great stories, interviews and most of all new music," said Carson Daly. "Since Fuse is where music lives, this partnership is a no-brainer."
The news comes as Daly's profile has been raised as host of NBC's breakout singing competition series The Voice. The one-time TRL veejay's late night series, which airs after Jimmy Fallon's show, is up 12 percent in total viewers, year over year.
“Anybody who loves music on television, loves and respects Carson Daly,” added Brad Schwartz, Fuse's senior VP of programming and operations. "Carson’s star has never been brighter and his music expertise, credibility and interview style resonates with artists and fans everywhere. It is going to be an awesome addition to Fuse’s music lineup.”
Fuse will serve up Daly's show at 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., as well as on weekends. On Aug. 24, the network will begin airing previously aired episodes of the late night series.
