David Letterman is the butt of more late night jokes.

On Saturday Night Live, Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers called the alleged $2 million sexual extortion attempt by CBS News producer "a stupid human trick."

He added that the alleged blackmailer, Robert "Joe" Halderman, had threatened to reveal embarrassing details of Letterman's personal life. Giving a joking example, he then said, "After sex, he would always say, 'Stay tuned for Craig Ferguson.'"

The night before, Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon poked fun at the Letterman scandal.

"If you came here tonight for sex with a talk show host, you've got the wrong studio," Leno said in his monologue.

Fallon cracked: "There's a new book out called 'Why Women Have Sex' that says there are 237 reasons why women have sex. And folks, Letterman knows the top 10."

Conan O'Brien didn't joke about it.

Guest Drew Carey brought it up on his show. "I would hate to be on opposite Letterman tonight with all that sex stuff going on," Carey said. "That's got to be tough."

But O'Brien -- who has called Letterman one of his influences -- replied, "No comment."
