Schumer who has been on Comedy Central since 2013 and stars on her own sketch comedy series, Inside Amy Schumer, recently explained why she didn't want to take on the anchor desk.
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Schumer said she was honored, but didn't want to make the five-year commitment.
Schumer said she isn't in it for the money and isn't planning to start now.
Back in March, Grantland's Bill Simmons seemed to have a bit of insight when he tweeted if Comedy Central had caught Schumer a year earlier, maybe she would have jumped on board.
PS: I don't think Poehler or CK was realistic, but had CC caught Schumer a year earlier - very realistic. Now she knows she can make movies.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) March 30, 2015
The comedian will make her big screen debut in Trainwreck, directed by Judd Apatow. The film hits theaters July 17.
