    This should be an interesting show tonight. David Letterman tells the audience he testified in front of a grand jury today. A con man tried extorting $2 million for him because he had information that Dave had been sleeping with some staffers. Letterman went to the DA, they had him mail a phony check and then got the person.

    The Price Was Wrong!

    It's odd - as soon as he first topped the Tonight Show, he got involved in the Palin - Yankee Game thing. Now the ratings show he beat Conan last week in both the overall and the demo and this comes out.

    Well isn't that nice. I'm sure his wife/girlfriend of 20 years is thrilled.

    ... assuming she didn't already know. I mean, YF, you know they claimed to be monogamous for 20 years? I believe Lasko herself was a Letterman staffer at one time, and I'm thinking she probably already knew this. Any idea when these happened? I certainly don't know.
    Just chillax. You know, until we know the details.

    Watching it now.

    Loved Letterman in the 1980s on NBC. First time I've made it appointment television for Letterman since 1994 or 1995.

    What a dirtbag.

    This guy has the audacity to call Palin's daughter what he did... and he behaves like this.

    Geez, Dave -- just go 'Straight Cash, Homey' and pay the $2 mil.

    I'm shocked at how humorous he's being while admitting this.

    I thought it was awkward when he said "Yes, I have had sex with women who work on the show" and the crowd applauded. Weird.

    That's right up there with the laugh track on the Diff'Rent Strokes with Gordon Jump as the would-be molester who ran the bike shop. King Neptune, anyone?

    Still with the Palin thing? So which comics can make jokes about anything? Only those who have never had sex? He's not the one who was arrested here, it was the guy blackmailing him. And he apparently put the blackmail evidence in Letterman's car, which would be a bit creepy.

    The crowd obviously wasn't sure how to react, it's not like they had a warning about what he was going to talk about. They were laughing during the Seinfeld/Michael Richards thing too a few years ago.

    The guy arrested apparently works for 48 Hours.

    I'm sure he'll be doing FAR more than 48 Hours in the pokey.
