David Letterman Speaks Candidly About His Sex Scandal and the State of Late-Night Comedy

David Letterman’s DGAF attitude has become more apparent in the waning episodes of The Late Show. Even he’s noticed the difference, telling The New York Times: “There’s a difference between regular-season hockey and playoff hockey. And I’m not in the playoffs.” This regular-season mentality shocked fans when he made a sexist joke last week during the show’s warmup.

From the interview:

I thought, well, maybe this will be a good opportunity to put a black person on, and it would be a good opportunity to put a woman on. Because there are certainly a lot of very funny women that have television shows everywhere. So that would have made sense to me as well.”
