Fans of having Jessica Williams replace Jon Stewart as host on The Daily Show can scratch her name off the list.
The popular correspondent, who's been getting a ton of fan support for the position, says she's not taking over as host. Sunday night, the 25-year-old tweeted, "I'm not hosting. Thank you, but I am extremely under-qualified for the job!... At this age, 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."
But she assures fans that she's sticking with the show, saying, "I'm not, like, dead. This is the beginning of my career."
Stewart announced last week that he would leave the show later this year. Comedy Central is said to be have a "short list" of potential replacements.
