Carson Daly squeezed out?

A possible casualty in the late-night wars, NBC Chairman Jeff Gaspin has admitted, may be the NBC host airing latest at night, Carson Daly with his show Last Call. With the proposal to move Jimmy Fallon back to 1:05, that would mean Daly's show would have to push to 2:05 AM -- which is time dedicated to local affiliate programming. This would effectively mean that in this game of musical chairs, Daly is left without a seat.

Gaspin affirmed the network's commitment to Daly, whose New Year's Eve show achieved a 3.2 demographic rating, a high for him. He said no decision has been made, but talks are ongoing to keep Daly in the NBC fold, with or without Last Call.
