Carson Daly Is Not That Bad

My boy Carson Daly takes a lot of heat. People complain that he is a late night talk show hack, and that he is basically unwatchable. Sure he is not the leader of the pack, maybe not even close to the leader, but his show rocks and it's about time people appreciate it before he's replaced with someone even lamer.

We'll admit that his opening monologue is always just a bunch of poorly delivered bad jokes. Sure, that can be annoying but how is that so much worse than Jay Leno who's openers consists of better delivered, bad jokes? Bad jokes are bad jokes, and only Conan's been able to pull it off in recent years. Dave's been good but he's fallen off hard.
