Last Call with Carson Daly
Last Call with Carson Daly is an American late night television program hosted by Carson Daly on NBC. A traditional talk show, the half-hour program consists of several produced segments, featuring interviews with musicians, actors and other artists, along with pre-taped on-location musical performances, it debuted in 2002. Unlike other programs in NBC's late night line-up, Last Call records only 24 weeks of original shows a year with the rest of the year being taken up by reruns, it airs at 1:37 a.m. ET/PT each weeknight. On February 12, 2019, NBC announced the series would end after it reaches its 2,000th filmed episode, with Daly citing his workload with Today, The Voice, a new project with Golf Channel in wanting to depart the series. Last Call premiered in 2002 as the successor to Later. Last Call aired Monday through Thursday until the cancellation of Late Friday in late May 2002, its premiere was delayed one day at the last minute due to a contract dispute. Last Call was taped in Studio 8H of the GE Building in New York City, the home studio of Saturday Night Live.
However, this required the producers to work around the schedule of Saturday Night Live. During this phase, Last Call had no house band and no jokes or monologue, going straight to the first guest at the beginning of the show; the stage was set up in an empty black box theater style, save for two low-slung chairs and a small table. Each week, a different unsigned band was brought in to do the music, in addition to any musical act at the end; the set acquired more furnishings and decor, much of, influenced by the occasional week-long trips to Las Vegas. In 2003 and 2004, Last Call was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for "Choice TV Show – Late Night". Last Call was planned to broadcast in high-definition when Studio 8H was retrofitted for Saturday Night Live. After the move, Last Call began to resemble its counterparts, with a more traditional set, permanent house band led by Joe Firstman, short monologue and occasional comedy bits. In November 2005 Joe Firstman became the official house band leader for Last Call.
Notable members of his band include Kamasi Washington, Kenny Aronoff, Mike Miley, Brian Wright, Zane Musa, Zane Carney, Mark Bryan, Marc Ford, Ryan Porter. Firstman wrote the majority of the material. Production of new Last Call episodes was suspended for a month due to the Writers Guild of America strike, but on December 4, 2007, Last Call became the first late night talk show to resume production during the strike. On air, Daly explained that the only reason the show resumed production was that he was given the option to either return or have the show's 75 non-striking staff members fired; the shows did not include monologues. The Writers Guild of America was critical of Daly, accusing him of crossing picket lines and labeling him a scab. Daly is not a member of the WGA. On November 27, 2007, he was accused by the WGA of soliciting jokes for his show through a telephone hotline. On December 11, 2007, an organized group of WGA writers attended a taping of Last Call. First, one heckled during an interview with Jerry Rice.
After security removed the first writer, another spoke up disruptively, expressing sympathy with striking writers. A producer asked anyone planning to disrupt the show to face prosecution; as the end of Late Night with Conan O'Brien was approaching, Daly made it public that he was interested in moving to the Late Night time slot. Jimmy Fallon was chosen to replace O'Brien, a choice that executive producer Lorne Michaels had in mind dating back to the day that Fallon left Saturday Night Live in 2004. In February 2009, network executive Rick Ludwin told TV Week that the company was "going through the budgetary process with all of our shows. There are new budgetary realities... It's tough. We want to keep going as long as we can make the budget work." Soon after that interview, NBC announced plans for Last Call to go on a one-week "tour" of California, with taped segments of up-and-coming musical acts at various clubs, such as The Roxy, The Viper Room, Hotel Cafe. As the show's 1000th episode approached in April, NBC's summary of the show made it clear that the change in format would continue: "Currently in its eighth season, NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly utilizes a new style by introducing a documentary style format.
Host Carson Daly takes the show on location each night. Recent highlights include Daly’s motorcycle trip across the historic Route 66, a visit to comedian Tom Green's house in the Hollywood Hills, a scene at the Whiskey Bar with the Grammy Award-winning band Kings of Leon."With the change, the usual late-night talk show trappings of a house band, studio audience, comedy were abandoned. In May, NBC announced that Last Call had been renewed for a ninth season, which debuted on September 21, 2009. On January 8, 2010, it was reported by multiple media outlets that The Jay Leno Show was moving to 11:35 p.m. the Conan O'Brien-hosted Tonight Show to 12:05 a.m. and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to 1:05, which would have resulted in Last Call losing its time slot. NBC confirmed the move, along with the possible end of Last Call. NBC had emphasized that its focus is retaining the lineup of Leno and Fallon. NBC chairman Jeff Gaspin told ABC News he expected Daly to stay

The show follows the lives of a group of young adults living in an apartment complex called Melrose Place, in West Hollywood, California; the show was created by Darren Star for Fox and executive produced by Aaron Spelling for his company, Spelling Television. It was the second series in the Beverly Hills, 90210 franchise. Season one and season two were broadcast on Wednesday at 9 p.m. after Beverly Hills, 90210. In 1994, for its third-season premiere, the show moved to Monday at 8 p.m. The show had many cast changes during the run. Thomas Calabro was the only original cast member; the show earned several Golden Globe nominations and placed #51 on Entertainment Weekly's "New TV Classics" list. The show is set in a small apartment courtyard complex located at 4616 Melrose Place in the city of West Hollywood, California. Several young individuals reside in each with their own dreams and drives.
The original format for the show was to have self-contained stories that conclude in every episode, but when that formula proved unpopular, the producers and writers started developing long-term storylines to evolve during the season. By the second season, the show had adopted a full-on soap opera format. Melrose Place's premiere season featured eight main characters: Dr. Michael Mancini, a physician who works at Wilshire Memorial Hospital and changes from a kind, devoted husband in Season 1 to a mean, adulterous villain from Season 2 on. Locane was written off after 13 episodes and replaced by Daphne Zuniga as Jo Reynolds, a photographer running away from her abusive husband. Williams was not brought back for the second season, her character having become engaged to a wealthy restaurant entrepreneur. Actress Heather Locklear, who in season one had guest starred as Alison's ambitious and merciless boss Amanda Woodward, was promoted to series regular status in the second season after her character bought and moved into the Melrose Place apartment building.
Although she was always billed as a "special guest star", Locklear remained with the show for the rest of its run. Guest Laura Leighton, recurring as Jane's trouble-making younger sister Sydney Andrews in the first two seasons, was upgraded to series regular for season three. Marcia Cross, recurring as Dr. Kimberly Shaw in season 1, became a series regular by the end of the second season. Janet Carroll appeared in several episodes as Kimberly's domineering mother. Beata Pozniak was featured in Season two in 7 episodes as Dr. Katya Petrova Fielding, a doctor with a daughter from a previous marriage who befriends and marries Matt, who becomes an endearing father figure for her child. Season four saw two new regular characters: Peter Burns, the ruthless hospital Chief of Staff introduced in season three. Davis's character was subsequently killed off in the middle of the fourth season, while Zuniga left the series at the end of the season. Patrick Muldoon arrived in the third season as the villainous Richard Hart.
Although Muldoon was not billed with the main cast, he appeared in most of the fourth season's episodes and is Melrose Place's longest recurring character in terms of number of episodes. The fifth season saw the addition of Rob Estes as restaurateur Kyle McBride, Lisa Rinna as his opportunistic wife Taylor, Brooke Langton as Samantha Reilly, an artist and a new tenant in the apartment complex. Bissett and Cross left the series towards the end of the fifth season; the season finale featured the exits of series regulars Thorne-Smith and Leighton. The season premiere of season six featured the departure of original cast member Doug Savant while Alyssa Milano was bumped to series regular, with Linden Ashby joining the cast as Dr. Brett Cooper and Jamie Luner as his seductive and rich ex-wife, Lexi Sterling. Charvet was written out in the middle of season 6, the beginning of season seven saw the departure of Shue, Langton and Ashby; the show's seventh season introduced John Haymes Newton as Ryan McBride, Kyle's younger brother, Rena Sofer as Eve Cleary, a woman from Amanda's past who marries Peter.
Sofer was not billed with the main cast. Bissett reprised her role as Jane for the seventh season.

Westlake Village, California
Westlake Village is a city in Los Angeles County on its western border with Ventura County. The population was estimated to be at 8,473 in 2014, up from 8,368 at the 2000 census; the headquarters of the Dole Food Company is located in Westlake Village. The planned community of Westlake was built with a lake at the center straddling the line between Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Two-thirds of it was annexed by the city of Thousand Oaks in two portions, in 1968 and 1972. In 1981, the remaining third incorporated into the City of Westlake Village which became the 82nd municipality of Los Angeles County. About 3,000 years ago, Chumash Indians moved into the region and lived by hunting rabbits and other game, gathering grains and acorns. On-going excavations, archaeological sites, polychrome rock paintings in the area provide a glimpse into the social and economic complexity of the ancient Chumash world, it is unknown when the first people settled in what is now Westlake, however, a Chumash village was settled here in 500 BCE, known as Hipuc.
The local Chumash Indians spent days preparing for the day's meal. Acorns and other seeds were large parts of their diet, were collected in the fall when the Chumash traveled inland; the Chumash got their food by hunting wild animals and gathering plants. Their diet consisted of acorns, cottontail rabbits, jack rabbits, rats and seeds, they made their clothing from the skins of animals such as rabbits and sea otters. Women wore long skirts weaved from grass or soft bark, while men wore pieces of deerskin tied around their waists. Both men and women wore shell beads. On a return trip from Northern California in January 1770, a group of men led by Gaspar de Portola are believed to be the first Europeans to encounter the Chumash Indians in the Conejo Valley. Father Juan Crespi and diarist of the expedition, wrote about El Triumfo, a Chumash village, he wrote that there were plenty of water and firewood in the village, that the land was covered with pastures. He wrote: "We are on a plain of considerable extent and much beauty, forested on all parts by live oaks and oak trees, with much pasturage and water."
Crespi named the place El triunfo del Dulcísimo Nombre de Jesús to a camping place by a creek. Other villages were found throughout the valley, including Satwiwa and two villages by where Ventu Park Road is in Newbury Park; these Chumash villages are believed by archeologists to have first been settled over 2,000 years ago. Another village was located by Lake Sherwood. In 1795, the area became part of one of the first Spanish land grants, Rancho Simi, given to the Pico family; when Mexico won independence from Spain in 1821, Alta California became Mexican territory, the Rancho Simi grant was confirmed in 1842. At the time California was admitted to the union in 1850, most of the land that became Ventura County was divided among only 19 families. Rising knolls, arroyos and ancient oaks were found on two Mexican land grants: Rancho El Conejo and Rancho Las Virgenes. In 1881, the Russell brothers purchased a large portion of the land for cattle ranching. According to Patricia Allen and family descendant, Andrew Russell beat the competition in buying the land by racing across 6,000 acres on a fifteen-minute trip in a buckboard and sealed the deal with a $20 gold piece.
The price per acre was $2.50. The area continued to be known as the Russell Ranch although it was sold in 1925 to William Randolph Hearst and again in 1943 to Fred Albertson; the Russell family leased back part of the land to continue its successful cattle ranch operation while the Albertson Company used the vast area as a movie ranch. Many movies and television shows were filmed here, including Robin Hood, King Rat and various episodes of Tarzan, Buck Rogers and Bonanza; the 1940 film Danger Ahead was filmed on Westlake Boulevard. In 1963, Daniel K. Ludwig's American-Hawaiian Steamship Company bought the 12,000 acre ranch for $32 million and, in partnership with Prudential Insurance Company, commissioned the preparation of a master plan by architectural and planning firm A. C. Martin and Associates; this new "city in the country" planned to have a firm economic base including commercial areas, residential neighborhoods, ample green space with the lake as a focal point. Prominent architects and land planners participated in designing the new community, a prominent example of planned 1960s-style suburbanism.
The original tract was divided by the Los Angeles/Ventura county line. In 1968 and 1972, the Ventura County side, two portions of the Westlake development consisting of 8,544 acres, were annexed into the city of Thousand Oaks. In 1981, the Los Angeles County portion of the Westlake master-planned community was incorporated as the City of Westlake Village. California state law prevents a city from existing in two separate counties, so the areas in Ventura County remained part of Thousand Oaks. Much of Westlake Village is surrounded by open space, including hiking and horse trails, as well as the vast Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area; the town is in the northwestern Santa Monica Mountains area, is 9 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. The lake lies within the watershed of Malibu Creek. Water from the lake must be released into the creek in compliance with an agreement between the California State Water Resources Control Board and the Westlake Lake Management Association, a private entity that oversees the operation of the lake.
In addition to its role as a bedroom community for Los Angeles via the Ventura Freeway, it is home to many large comme

The Anna Nicole Show
The Anna Nicole Show is an American reality sitcom starring former model and Playboy Playmate Anna Nicole Smith. The series debuted on August 4, 2002 on the E! entertainment television network and ran for three seasons. The show follows the exploits of her entourage. Story arcs included Smith's alleged period of unwilling celibacy. Although termed a reality show, many, if not all, of the episodes began with situations contrived by the producers. In addition to Smith, the show featured: Kim Walther "Kimmy/Kimmie" – Smith's personal assistant, she claimed to be Smith's biggest fan and admirer, insisting that she saw the "inner beauty" of Smith, which led her to getting a large tattoo of Smith on her shoulder and upper arm. Kimmie's ambiguous sexual orientation and the possibility of a lesbian relationship with Smith surfaced in several episodes. Howard K. Stern – Smith's attorney portrayed as a cold, calculating mind who serves as Smith's right-hand-man. Stern's antagonistic relationship with interior decorator Bobby Trendy was a recurring plot line throughout most of the series.
Daniel Smith – Smith's teenage son. Though listed in the show's opening credits, his appearances were infrequent, he appeared to be somewhat camera shy. In his rare appearances, he was portrayed as something of a foil to his mother's raunchy behavior. Sugar Pie – Smith's miniature poodle; the dog's tendency to attempt to have intercourse with various inanimate objects was a running gag on the show. In the first season of the show Smith attempted to cure Sugar Pie of her habits by hiring a pet psychic. Bobby Trendy – A flamboyantly gay interior decorator, the quality of whose work and timeliness, or lack thereof, displeased Smith, resulting in an elongated feud which served as the show's major ongoing plot line, he was prone to making self-congratulatory bon mots about his own taste in fashion and clothing accessories and went out of the way in the middle of conversation to list the brand names of the articles of clothing he was wearing. Had something of a catchphrase in uttering the word "luxurious" in reference to himself or activities in which he participated.
Shelly Cloud – Anna Nicole Smith's cousin. She never left the small town in which she grew up and is now an impoverished housewife with no teeth. Shelly arrives on Smith's doorstep without notice to request financial assistance or otherwise attempt to exploit their relationship for financial gain, though she insists it's because they were close as children and that she misses her cousin. Next to Bobby Trendy, she is the show's second most notable "antagonist." In the series finale, Shelly reveals that she plans to force herself and her husband into Smith's life permanently by moving into her house with or without permission. In a way its implied that Anna doesn't care for her at times because she seems to be a reminder of what her life could have been like and what she could have turned into if she had never left Mexia, Texas. Benjy Bronk – Benjy from The Howard Stern Show went on two dates with Smith after her appearance on the Stern show. According to Smith, they "...had a drink, the next thing I knew, my head was in Benjy's lap and I loved it..."
Although it has become a cult classic among college students, The Anna Nicole Show was never a solid ratings success. Though ratings premiered in the top forty, the show's ratings dropped continuously, week by week, which ended its run nearly out of the top seventy; this continuous rating decline caused E! to cancel the series in February 2004, after just two seasons and 27 episodes. Before the cancellation, season 3 was starting to get aired, but only the episodes, filmed. Though most sites have said the show was cancelled due to "creative differences", it is that the series was cancelled due to a severe rating decline. Afterward Anna Nicole appeared as a spokesperson for Trimspa, made three other film appearances, before her death. Official website; the Anna Nicole Show on IMDb The Anna Nicole Show at TV.com
