NBC continues to be the most popular latenight choice of Americans, with Jay Leno, who’s set to exit “The Tonight Show” in just a couple of months, and Jimmy Fallon, the man who will replace him, both off to their best ratings starts in five years.
The Peacock latenight hosts have opened up considerable distance on their CBS competition and also had no problem topping ABC’s revamped lineup, which has had “Jimmy Kimmel Live” leading into “Nightline” since January.
Leno saw a boost in his final months the first time he was ready to ankle “Tonight” in 2009, but it must be encouraging for NBC to see his replacement come on so strong this fall. In fact, Fallon is now outdrawing David Letterman’s CBS show in young adults even though the latter starts an hour earlier.
Looking at the numbers for the first eight weeks of the television season (Sept. »

Carson Daly is the latest addition to Studio 1A at Rockefeller Center. Yesterday it was confirmed that Carson's joining Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Natalie Morales, and Al Roker as part of The Today Show crew, with his first show airing in just a few days, on Monday, Sept. 16. Carson's most recent gigs have been hosting Last Call With Carson Daly and The Voice, both of which also air on NBC. But, of course, many in our generation know and will forever love Carson thanks to his turn on MTV's Trl in the '90s - in fact, we're looking back at the iconic show in our Trl time machine. Savannah ranks among Trl's admirers. "Of course I was [a fan!]" Savannah said at last night's Estée Lauder Modern Muse event in NYC. "He's sort of my generation. Even though he's a little younger than me! So maybe I had aged out of Trl. »

Fox has announced that its delaying the debut of the military comedy Enlisted. It was set to air on Friday nights following Raising Hope starting in November, but will now wait until January to debut. Fox says it will be replaced by a second episode of Raising Hope, though I have a feeling that might not happen if the ratings for Dads are half as bad as the reviews.
Sorry Ed, you’re going to have to wait a few more months to have Parker Young back on TV.

Alec Baldwin may be following in Charles Grodin’s footsteps, segueing from a career as a actor to a gig as a talk show host on an NBC-affiliated cable network. Baldwin is in talks with MSNBC to host a primetime talk show. “It’s real possibility,” a source close to the situation said, cautioning that there is no deal and things could still fall apart. According to Mediate, which first reported the Baldwin-msnbc negotiations, the Emmy-winning actor is eyed for the 10 Pm hour. Following his seven-year run on NBC’s 30 Rock, the network kept Baldwin in the fold with a two-year overall deal inked late last year. Since then, he was considered for a late-night talk show, with the discussion focusing on Baldwin possibly taking over NBC’s 1:35 Am half-hour occupied by Last Call With Carson Daly. However, nothing came out of that, and Last Call was renewed for another season. »

Carson Daly has nothing but love for Jennifer Love Hewitt, whom he dated for a year in 1998 when he was the host of MTV's Trl and she ruled the box office with movies like I Know What You Did Last Summer and Can't Hardly Wait. Though their long-distance relationship ended badly, the exes mended fences on Last Call With Carson Daly in 2005. Daly congratulated The Client List actress on her recent pregnancy and engagement to costar Brian Hallisay after taping The Voice on Tuesday, [...] »

NBC names the versatile Emmy-winning writer/performer Seth Meyers as the new host of Late Night when Jimmy Fallon moves to The Tonight Show in 2014. Lorne Michaels will executive produce Late Night with Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker will remain with the franchise as producer. Late Night with Seth Meyers will originate from 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York.
"We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation. His years at Saturday Night Live's 'Weekend Update' desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the Late Night franchise. On behalf of Steve Burke, Ted Harbert and Paul Telegdy, we couldn't be happier that Seth and Jimmy Fallon will be »

Syfy released a lot of news yesterday and probably the biggest revelation is that it ordered a fourth season of Being Human.
The channel also ordered a bunch of series and pilots. That included a pilot of High Moon from "television icon" (I'm going to use that title in the future, I sound too much like a fanboy when I call him a "god of teleplays") Bryan Fuller, and developing seven other dramas set in space. Every so often I'll see a complaint about how Syfy doesn't have any shows set in space (a big part of science fiction, admittedly), clearly they're trying to address that.
Syfy also ordered a few series including a horror anthology series from Jamie Foxx to air as part of Syfy's Halloween programming. »
Last Call With Carson Daly has been renewed for a thirteenth season. "We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Carson who has broken the mold, creating his own unique late-night show format with Last Call," NBC said in a statement. "The show has become a platform for emerging artists — and Carson’s engaging interview style has made it the place for insightful conversations with an eclectic group of new stars as well as established icons and news makers." Alec Baldwin on Tuesday was rumored to be in the mix to join NBC's late-night programming, potentially taking over Daly's time slot. Now E! reports Baldwin "was mentioned as a possibility, but there were never any negotiations," and that the idea is now off the table. »
