Carson Daly shut down by Today co-host after his joke goes wrong in awkward live moment

Carson Daly shut down by Today co-host after his joke goes wrong in awkward live moment

CARSON Daly has been shut down by one of his Today co-hosts after trying to make a joke during Tuesday’s broadcast.

The quick dig at the TRL alum has been caught on her mic, despite the host being off to the side of the stage.


The awkward moment took place at the end of a cooking segment.

During Tuesday’s show, Carson stood in the Today show on-set kitchen with chef Elena Besser.

Meanwhile, co-hosts Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, and Craig Melvin sat eating at a table off to the side, with the camera sometimes panning to them

The chef showed off an easy steak dinner that only took five ingredients to make, with Carson going through each step of the recipe with her.

With the recipe seemingly so easy to make, the Today show host joked that there was no reason for viewers to really take the advice the teleprompter was telling him to give them.

Carson said, pointing out the QR code at the bottom of the screen: “These ingredients– there’s only five of them, I don’t know why you need to scan the code! 

“But the code is there if you’d like to use it.” 

He then added: “Go to Today.com/TodayTable, where a small commission is earned on things that you buy.”

That’s when one of Carson’s co-hosts off screen, which sounded like Savannah, teased Carson for answering his own joking question.

“That’s why!,” she quickly shouted at him from off to the side, as the answer to why viewers have to scan QR code for the recipe, after he said their company earns a commission from when fans purchase items through it.

Carson has been known to throw some on-air digs at his co-hosts, though, too.

Earlier this month, he teased Savannah over her dance skills.

It all took place while Carson led one of Today show’s POPStart entertainment segment and discussed the popularity of Netflix’s new show, Wednesday.

The popular series, starring Jenna Ortega as the gloomy daughter of Morticia and Gomez, featured a wild dance scene that immediately went viral.

Jenna choreographed the dance that her character Wednesday performed to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck.

The dance featured funky, erratic movements that almost mirrored that of a zombie stomping around.

While speaking over a clip of Jenna dancing on the show, Carson couldn’t resist the chance to toss a dig at his co-star.

“Looks like Savannah dancing at a wedding after a couple of chardonnays,” he joked.

The other hosts burst out laughing, and they kept it rolling.

This came just a few days after Savannah had abruptly cut off Carson at the end of one of his other POPStart segments.

Carson was busy discussing the film 80 for Brady, as well as the 40-year anniversary of the Eurythmics’ hit single Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).

The former TRL host was joined by Savannah, Craig, Hoda, and country music legend Shania Twain.

“That is your quick POPStart today ’cause it’s Shania Twain all-” while the other hosts seated around him clapped and cheered for the country star.

Carson then tried to finish his original statement: “We’re going to go-” before Savannah interrupted him with, “Okay, our co-hostess with the most-est is ready to keep going.”

Carson looked decidedly annoyed, but settled in and looked on wordlessly as the show continued, putting on a smile.
