This is why Today is a gift, not because it's in the present, but because Carson Daly is joining the show as a host on the daily, starting September 16th!

Carson will be entering the Today show, hosting the completely new, and AHmazingly interactive Orange Room, which will allow viewers to weigh in on segments, and interact with guests on the show! Uh, get ready for us to be weighing in all morning long!

Understandably, Carson was over the moon about officially joining this venerable Television institution:

“When I got the call about being permanently on TODAY and launching the Orange Room, it was like a dream come true. You know that scene in 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,’ where Charlie peels back the wrapper and finds the golden ticket? I felt like I got the golden ticket.”

No, Carson, it is we who feel like we are unwrapping the golden ticket every time we get to see you! In our analogy, we're Charlie, you're Willie Wonka, 30 Rock is the Chocolate Factory, and Matt Lauer is…uh, Slugworth. JK Matt, you can be Grandpa Joe!

Congratulations on joining Team Peacock, Carson, and welcome to your new digs!

    As long as we can keep him on The Voice, I'll be okay! :) This is great news. I always thought Daly was a serious class act.

    Carson was really good when he was on the Today Show a couple of months ago. I think this is a great choice. He knows his stuff and more importantly his music. Can't go wrong with a man like that. :) Carson- tell your wife to let Al Roker stick his hand in the food bowl the next time and not to shame him about germs…awkward!!!

    Noooooooooooooooooooooo, what's going to happen to Amp radio? I'm happy for him, but I'm going to miss him on my morning commute.

    Assuming this is to groom him before they boot Matt Lauer out the door.
