David Letterman will tape his first talk show Monday since announcing last Thursday that he'd had sex with female employees.

A witness tells Usmagazine.com that several hundred people with tickets have lined up outside Letterman's midtown New York City studio. The line will be let inside around 5:30 p.m. ET.

Three pages -- young women in their early 20s -- are currently handling the crowd.

Letterman, 62, stunned his audience Thursday night when he revealed his dalliances with female employees after he'd been threatened with a $2 million extortion plot by CBS producer Robert "Joe" Halderman.

Stephanie Birkitt, 34, was named as the woman at the center of the scandal. Reports have linked her to both Letterman and Halderman, who pleaded not guilty to grand larceny, and was released from jail Friday on $200,000 bail.

If convicted, Halderman faces five to 15 years behind bars.
