Craig Ferguson Admits He’s Slept With Letterman, Too

David Letterman got kinda sorta screwed over this week for boning people on his staff. Yeah, yeah. It’s whatever. Everyone bones people they work with, and he was not married when he did it, so it ain’t that big of a deal. Point is: We’re going to be hearing a lot about it from all sorts of people for the next hot minute or two because that’s the kind of thing that people talk about. We’ve already all forgotten that Mackenzie Phillips’ dad diddled her and now we’re all on to this and maybe next week Aaron Carter will rape someone and then we’ll all be preoccupied with that.

HOWEVER! It’s not easy for the late night hosts who actually have a great deal of respect for Letterman, and in the case of Craig Ferguson, a working relationship, to crack on this story like they would most others of the same nature. So tonight, a class act as usual, Ferguson delivered a great monologue about his buddy and boss David Letterman that is most definitely worth a watch. The best lines? “Well, I guess by now you’ve all figured out how I got the job” and of course, “If we are now holding late night talk show hosts to the same moral accountability as we hold politicians or clergyman – I’m out. I’m gone. Because I don’t think I have kept it a secret from you that I have a few incidences in my own past.”

  • i find it a bit irritating that the eic of this website also runs a feminist site and thinks its okay to let one of her writers put up a post that minimalises awful things that happen to women…

    “Yeah, yeah. It’s whatever. Everyone bones people they work with, and he was not married when he did it, so it ain’t that big of a deal. ”

    “We’ve already all forgotten that Mackenzie Phillips’ dad diddled her and now we’re all on to this and maybe next week Aaron Carter will rape someone and then we’ll all be preoccupied with that.”

    haha. Theoritical rape is funny.

  • I think he handled it brilliantly well, and made it a running joke of the night. One of his great shows, I believe.
    “If I inadvertently say something that gets me fired…Then I hope it was funny!”

  • Ah, true I did already forget about Mackenzie Phillips. But I gotta disagree that it’s OK what Letterman did because he wasn’t married. Well, not in the legal sense, but a lot of states would have recognized his long-term relationship as a common law marriage.
