Almost Got the Part

Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart was really sought after for a major network job. According to New York Magazine sources, the host of Comedy Central's Emmy-winning Daily Show was heavily pursued by NBC News to host Meet the Press.

One source claims the network was willing to offer Stewart "everything." The source tells the publication, "They were ready to back the Brink's truck up."

Instead, Chuck Todd took over the news program.
