Because We Are Certain Carson Isn't On Your TiVo List

Because life isn't fair, Carson Daly is now celebrating his fifth year hosting his own late-night talk show.

Five years even though he isn't funny, isn't talented, can't interview, and hasn't shaken off the fratboy-turned-yuppie-turned-Gen-Y's-answer-to-Dick-Clark tag -- even though he's had a nationwide platform and access to the biggest stars in the business, starting way back when he was a forgettable jock on KROQ.

Now that Conan is getting ready to take over for Jay on the Tonight Show, Daly is making it known that he'd be more than interested in Conan's spot, clearly oblivious to the fact that truly funny Craig Ferguson and Jimmy Kimmel would destroy him in the ratings.

Currently, the only reason Carson gets any ratings is the people too fucking baked to find their remote at 1:30am to turn off the tv once Conan has thrown his exclamation on the night.

Even though you probably can't remember even one moment from Carson's five years on late night, there's a reason to set your TiVos to record his horrible show: he's suddenly on the Silversun Pickups bandwagon and was smart enough to have them play every night this week on his show.

After the jump see what songs will be played on what days this week...
