‘SNL’ zings David Letterman’s difficulties

NEW YORK (AP/The Loop) — Add “Saturday Night Live” to the shows making sport of David Letterman’s difficulties. But in the hands of “SNL,” Dave got off pretty easy.

On Thursday, the late-night host acknowledged having sex with women who worked for him and told viewers he was the victim of a blackmail attempt.

On SNL’s “Weekend Update,” anchor Seth Meyers dubbed the extortion attempt by a CBS News producer “a stupid human trick.”

Meyers added that the would-be blackmailer was threatening to reveal embarrassing details of Letterman’spersonal life, then gave a joking example: After sex, Dave would say, “Stay tuned for Craig Ferguson.”

Fellow TV hosts Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon are among comics who already had zinged Letterman on their shows.
