Finally got around to reading this long Vanity Fair profile of David Letterman’s extortion adventure from last fall. I don’t know if I saw any evidence at all of a backlash and it’s interesting to think about whether his approaching the situation the way he did lead to this result. Another thing I forgot about was how the ratings boost caused by this publicity impacted the Conan/Leno brouhaha.
Yikes. Jimmy Kimmel eviscerates Jay Leno on JAY LENO’S SHOW!
Much, much more here in a full late night round up from Gawker.
