THIS DAVID LETTERMAN EXTORTION BUSINESS JUST CREEPS ME OUT

Well, the headline of the hour is that David Letterman likes to have sex with his female staffers.

We found that out because Dave was trying to come clean on last night's Late Show about what went down in a grand jury earlier in the day when he testified about a creepy guy who was trying to blackmail him and extort $2 million from him.



Some people think it was a PR coup for Dave to air this out in public, and I think this was the right move and the right thing for him to do, to be honest about it. Aaron Barnhart at TV Barn was creeped out, though, by the audience applauding Dave when he was saying he had sex with his staffers, and frankly, I found the applause kind of odd too. Shouldn't there have been gasps from the crowd? I guess not, eh? I think maybe the audience figures they've seen it all from all these celebrities.

Maybe the audience was clapping over the fact that Dave was coming clean with the facts -- I don't think they were applauding what he did. It was kind of a nervous reaction in the theater.

As for whether this incident will end Letterman's career -- well, we all know what little damage Monica Lewinsky did to Bill Clinton. I think that's your answer right there.
