Jessica Williams is not replacing Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, so says Jessica Williams. The correspondent’s name has been floated by many as a potential successor to Stewart, but Williams took to Twitter to let folks know she’s not the right person.
“Fact 1: I’m not hosting. Thank you but I am extremely under-qualified for the job!”
“At this age (25) if something happens politically that I don’t agree with, I need to go to my room and like not come out for, like, seven days.”
“That being said I am super not right for it, but there are quite a few people who are! Can’t wait to stick around & see what happens.”
Other names being floated are Chris Rock, John Oliver, Amy Poehler and Joel McHale.
