Today Show co-anchor Carson Daly appeared distracted upon his big return. He has been absent from the morning show. Carson was busy filming new episodes of The Voice in Los Angeles. The NBC singing competition is currently airing its live final broadcasts.

Carson Daly returns to the Today Show

The television personality made his return to the Today Show. Carson Daly seemed a little distracted by his phone. He reunited with his co-host Craig Melvin, Dylan Dreyer, Tom Llamas, and Sheinelle Jones. They talked about the hottest moments in pop culture and in entertainment news as part of the “POPStart Segment.”

Carson Daly mentioned his new show Barmageddon with his co-host, Blake Shelton. He took out his phone when they returned from a commercial break. Sheinelle wished him a warm welcome as he was caught with his phone. Carson put the phone up to his ear and called Blake.

“Blake, wake up, we’re on TV. Yeah, they’re actually going to put it on the Today Show,” Carson Daly said. “Wake up now.”

He confirmed that he was talking to the country musician, who appears with him on the new show as well as The Voice. Carson then pretended to hang up on Blake, which made his co-hosts laugh. As fans know, he loves to joke around with his colleagues. Barmageddon also includes stars Nikki Bella.

The new series premieres on Monday, December 5 on the USA Network. In the new show, celebrities compete in fun bar games, mixing drinks, cracking jokes, singing, and more. The show was filmed at Blake’s Ole Red establishment. Some of the celebrity guests include Gwen Stefani, Jay Pharoah, and Sheryl Crow, among others.

The concept of Barmageddon

It’s hard to understand the gist of Barmageddon. Carson Daly and Blake argued over the idea in the segment. It’s a crazy game that fans have never seen before. If one of the contestants loses and they want to join again, they have to spin a wheel that has disgusting food on it. Whatever they land on, they have to eat that food in order to get back into the game.

Some of the games include drunken axe hole, keg curling, and supersized darts. Carson Daly took some time off the Today Show to film both episodes of Barmageddon and The Voice. The former TRL host is a busy man lately. Jacob Soboroff filled in for Carson all week and led each of the “POPStart Segments.”

Season 22 of The Voice takes place in Los Angeles. It would be hard for Carson to travel back and forth between The Voice and the Today Show in New York City. He had to take a leave of absence instead. However, Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie were both out on Friday’s show.
