We know this is probably the worst news you're ever going to hear in your entire life, but guys. Carson Daly is tragically not related to Jay Leno.
It appears that a lot of people on the Internet think Jay is Carson's dad, but again, totally not related. We know they look alike (read: they look nothing alike), but you'll be shocked to know that Carson's dad is an actor by the name of J.D. Daly and his mom is a TV personality by the name of Pattie Daly Caruso.
We know, everyone. We know. Try not to be too traumatized by this news –– together we can get through this. But if you really want to take a proverbial knife to the gut, check out this clip of Carson talking about his extended family with Jay on The Tonight Show. In fact, he even shows off a picture of his fam wearing The Voice T-shirts during Thanksgiving, and Jay Leno is not in the photo. Unless he has the ability to morph into a Thanksgiving turkey, which is totally possible as far as we're concerned.
In other news, excuse us while we go watch some TRL. Oh wait, we can't. Because the glory days are over.
