Ubiquitous MTV emcee/vee-jay/interviewer Carson Daly came to "mainstream" TV as host of this nightly NBC half-hour chatfest, which aired just after Late Night With Conan O'Brien in the 12:35 a.m. time slot previously occupied by Later With Bob Costas. Taped on the network's Saturday Night Live set in New York, the series did its best to eschew the usual couch-and-desk talk show format; with no monologue and no sketches, Daly simply sat down and talked to his guests, who returned the compliment by avoiding the standard relentless plugging of their latest movie, CD, or TV special. Last Call With Carson Daly was supposed to premiere on Monday, January 7, 2002, but a last-minute contract dispute between MTV and NBC forced the latter network to sheepishly issue an apology and move the debut episode to Tuesday, January 8.
