Carson Daly Pwned At His Own Show
Deadline Hollywood Daily » Carson Daly’s Taping Disrupted by Writers
During an interview with former NFL great Jerry Rice, a WGA member incognito in the audience heckled Daly, claiming he “needed a writer” to ask better questions. Production assistants and NBC security swooped down on the scribe and escorted him from the building. The writer didn’t resist. nbc02.jpgA clearly disconcerted Daly asked whether Rice would be willing to start the interview over again, which he was. After reintroducing Rice to the audience, who repeated their cheers, Daly was horrified when another incognito writer stood up and loudly declared: “I feel so bad for the striking writers! Can I please leave?” The scribe also pointed out Daly’s use of cue cards and asked who was writing the show now. NBC security, still expelling the first troublemaker, instantly scrambled back into the studio, then hurriedly ejected three more WGA members from the audience. Daly, now visibly rattled, had no impromptu comment to offer the perplexed audience.
