Now that Jimmy Fallon is definitely taking over The Tonight Show next year, Alec Baldwin and NBC have kindled what Media Decoder calls a “mutual interest” in Baldwin attaining some late-night real estate. The speculation is that Baldwin would get the time slot where Last Call with Carson Daly currently resides. “Taking on a half-hour late-late night program won’t be as time consuming as hosting an hourlong show like Tonight or Late Night, allowing Baldwin to take acting jobs,” Deadline notes.
