Viewers may know him best as the host of MTV's "Total Request Live" and NBC's "The Voice," but Carson Daly put on yet another hosting hat on Monday when he filled in for Matt Lauer on the "Today" show.

Daly could be found, somewhat incongruously, behind the iconic NBC News desk between "Today" co-anchor Savannah Guthrie and weatherman Al Roker. He briefly introduced a few segments here and there, including one story about a major jewelry heist in France.

While some viewers said they liked seeing Daly, others were not so sure. The Wall Street Journal's Michael Howard Saul tweeted, "Carson Daly is the guest host of the Today Show, filling in for Matt Lauer. Is he a journalist? I have already switched to GMA." Another viewer wrote, "I don't know what's sadder. Carson Daly hosting 'Today' or the people excited that Carson Daly is hosting 'Today.'"

What do you think of Daly as a co-host? Tell us in the poll below.
