Am I the only person that watches Carson Daily with a strong sense of shock and awe? Is he really that good at duping people into thinking that he is cool, or least of all, funny? I have tried, over and over to find some reason why he has a show and I have come up empty handed and in full yawn, every single time.
Maybe it's because he reminds me of one of those popular guys in High School that somehow knew all the popular hot girls. One of those guys that just seemed untouchable. One of those guys who you just knew... that if you could just get to be his buddy, THEN you'd have a chance with the cheerleaders. But then, when you got to know him, you found out that he was really a doof, and you wonder why in the world you ever left all of your poor, lower-class but super-hilarious friends to climb the social ladder to be best buddies with a complete gonad.
I hate to be mean, but I really don't think the man is one tiny bit funny. I think he did a good job on MTV, because he was sort of "that kind of chap." Next to Britney, he even seemed a little authentic. But sweet Jehosophat, he is no comedian nor is he near the coolness of Conan, by a long shot. Yet, it is painfully apparent that someone thinks he is cool. It is just kinda sickening to watch. I almost feel sorry for him. I've never watched a talk show where so many of my emotions are vying for dominance: Hatred, compassion, boredom, sleepiness, (not an emotion really), smugness, indifference...
I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who just love him to death. God bless you. But me, I don't know... maybe it just brings back to many painful high school and leaving too many good friends behind.
Whatever the case. I tried to like Carson. I failed. Therefore, nary another moment shall be waisted watching yon Carson.
