Exclusive Interview With Carson Daly.
While the rest of the entertainment world is focusing on Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien, The Common Room decided to take time and sit down with the man forgotten in the shuffle, Carson Daly.
The former host of MTV's Total Request Live has been hosting Last Call With Carson Daly since 2002. When it was announced that Conan was going to move from Late Night to take over The Tonight Show, Carson Daly made it publicly known he was interested in taking over Late Night. Instead, he was passed over for Jimmy Fallon.
With all the changes coming to the Late Night lineup, the only thing that seems definite is that Carson will lose his show when the dust settles. With that in mind, we sat down with Carson to discuss the recent events.
TCR: How are you Carson?
CD: Well, I've been better, to be honest.
TCR: I can imagine. With all the hype surrounding Conan and Jay, how do you keep doing your job without getting distracted?
CD: Well, to be honest with you, it cuts me real deep. I've been in this family since 2002, and it is now 2010. I have given my all to this network and now they treat me like I am still a nobody.
TCR: Let me stop you right there.
TCR: Because nobody cares.
We'd like to thank Carson Daly for stopping by The Common Room.
