Is It Any Good?

Last Call began its run with a format that was more akin to other late-night options; its change to a more documentary-style format offers an MTV-style alternative to the traditional late-night talk/comedy show. But while Last Call may seem edgier than its after-hours counterparts, its content really isn't that different. Guests are still using the show to promote their latest records, tours, and products, and Daly is still offering his take on the world.

Some viewers will like the fact that the show has exchanged monologues, in-house bands, and silly gags for interviews filmed in black and white or from interesting camera angles. But the show's slower pace may actually leave viewers feeling sleepy rather than entertained.
