"The Daily Show" host, satiric comic Jon Stewart, 38, has been chosen to host next Wednesday's Grammy Awards, it was announced Wednesday. (Rosie O'Donnell hosted the past two Grammy shows, to mixed critical reaction.) In anticipation of the Grammy show, "Access Hollywood" interviewed Stewart and inquired if he looked forward to meeting Grammy nominee Britney Spears. Replied Stewart, "Yes, because I have so much in common with a 20-year-old pop star." Actually, Spears is 19.
