Turned Down the Chance to Take Over for Letterman
Way back in 1993, when he was most famous for his Hollywood Minute segments on Saturday Night Live, Spade was offered the job to take over for David Letterman when the latter left his spot on Late Night with David Letterman. He said NBC offered him the spot because he'd brought a new attitude and a little edge to SNL. They were offering $1 million a year, but Spade turned it down, saying he didn't really want to do a talk show. The job eventually went to Conan O'Brien, who has been great for the genre, but it's fun to imagine what late-night TV might have looked like with David Spade behind a desk.
