[ # ] David Spade says he was offered Late Night before Conan O’Brien
November 5th, 2015 under David Spade

It has been over 20 years since Conan O’Brien took over Late Night from David Letterman, and now David Spade claims he was offered the the job first. While sitting down with The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Joe Dirt revealed that Lorne Michaels offered him the hosting job when he was still on Saturday Night Live, but he turned it down. At the time, Spade was still young and wanted to do a sitcom and not get tied down to late night show. He felt, “That might be it for me, I’ll just be a talk show guy.” Even though he said no, he says he was still offered $2 million a year to change his mind. As we know he didn’t.
I guess Spade was right. If you look at all the other talk show hosts of the time, they all spent over 20 years in their seats. Even though he was right, I think I would’ve gotten in to late night earlier had he taken over Late Night. Although, that means we would not have Conan and I think he’s the best late night host on television today. So it’s a toss up for me, what do you think of his reveal.
