I'm watching. You're watching. Let's talk.

Talk-show tango Oct. 5-9

In television on 10/04/2009 at 4:41 pm

Had about enough of this David Letterman-having-sex-with-his-staff story? Yeah, I know. But it’s not going to die down (update: here’s Reuters on Letterman’s mea culpa to his Monday-night audience), on the news or on the talk-show circuit. Jay Leno’s already weighed in, having said on Friday that if viewers tuned in for sex with a talk-show hosts they had the wrong studio. Jimmy Fallon goofed on Dave’s sexual know how. And, according to Yahoo’s story on the reaction, even SNL’s Seth Meyers dubbed it a “stupid human trick”. Monday night, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Craig Ferguson will have their chances to weigh in. And will Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel, who gave Dave passes on Friday, take their kicks? Yeah I know I’m being lurid. It’ll be salacious enough without courting nasty funny comments. I’m ashamed. But I’m watching.
