Dave Vs. Jay

Filed under: Jay LenoDavid Letterman


Their rivalry has been revived!

David Letterman and Jay Leno are neck and neck when it comes to the ratings, so much so that last night's numbers were so close they were considered statistically inconclusive!

Letterman was expected to take the lead as the extortion trial against Robert Halderman took place yesterday, but he didn't say much about it during the show except that "the matter was resolved today" followed by thanking the members involved in the case of the New York District Attorney's office by name.

Letterman Extortionist To Plead Guilty Today


Robert Halderman, the 48 Hours producer who attempted to extort $2 million from David Letterman, plans to plead guilty this afternoon in court.

He's expected to get six months in jail plus 1,000 hours of community service as well as 4 1/2 years probation. It's likely he'll only have to serve four months due to good behavior.

Halderman will speak during the plea hearing today admitting to purposely extorting Letterman, which eventually led to the late-night host admitting his adultery with female staffer Stephanie Birkitt on the air.

What a mess!
