SheKnows caught up with Daly on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange for an exclusive interview as he rang the closing bell.
SheKnows: What can viewers expect this year from your awesome New Year's Eve special?
SheKnows: Can you give us any hints?
Carson Daly: (Laughs) No, we don't know, some guests will stop by. It could be the Yankees, it could just be people in the area.
SheKnows: What's your New Year's resolution this year?
Carson Daly: I had my son; my first kid was born in March of '09 so I'm going to resolve to continue to be a good father. That's my new year's resolution and get a little more sleep than I did in '09.
SheKnows: What can we expect from your show in the upcoming year?
Carson Daly: We changed formats on the late night show (Last Call with Carson Daly airs on NBC at 1:35 am ET) and we're looking a little different than the other traditional late night shows. It's working out really well for us and viewers are taking notice.
SheKnows: Are there a few guests that you haven't had on the show yet that really want?
Carson Daly: We try to be a platform of new artists and bands and people who are trying to break so we've done a good job of that. I'd love to have U2 on the show. I'm a big fan of Muse, a rock band.
SheKnows: Looking back at 2009 have there been a few breakout artists who really stand out in your mind?
Carson Daly: There are a couple: Kid Cudi's a young guy who made his debut on my show and he went on to have a great year. He has a bright future, a young guy. Kings of Leon is a rock band that's been around for a long time and I think they can become America's biggest rock band.
SheKnows: Are there any particular movies from this year that stick out in your mind?
Carson Daly: With Jackson being born I haven't seen too many flicks though I did see Up in the Air and really liked it a lot. I loved it.
SheKnows: Do you think George will win an Oscar?
Carson Daly: (Smiling) No, but it's really good. I just really liked it a lot. It's really good.
SheKnows: Switching gears, what's the best advice you've ever been given and who gave it to you?
Carson Daly: Probably my mom. She's given me a lot of advice but "never forget where you come from" is always good advice. I was a bartender…through all of this TV and all of this stuff, it's nice but I've never forgotten where I've come from and that's helped my career in good stead.
SheKnows: Where do you see yourself five years from now?
Carson Daly: Right here on the stock exchange floor ringing the bell again (Laughs).
SheKnows: Every year, right? (Laughs)
Carson Daly: I hope so. I love coming down here. Working somewhere, working hard.
SheKnows: Is there anything about NYC this time of year that rings special for you besides New Year's Eve?
Carson Daly: Everything, I lived here for ten years. I've been here during the holidays, it's great and I love seeing snow. I live on the beach now in California it's extra special to come here. I love New Yorkers. I am a Yankees fan so I miss the Yankees.
SheKnows: Who's your favorite player?
Carson Daly: The captain, (Derek) Jeter. He's a class act.
