On his prime time show Friday, Jay Leno joked about the $2 million sexual extortion plot against David Letterman.


"Settle down," he began. "If you came here tonight for sex with a talk show host, you've got the wrong studio.


"What is going on? First Conan [O'Brien] hits his head, and then somebody tried to extort money from Letterman," Leno, 59, continued. "I'm so glad I'm out of late night."

He then joked that he was once the victim of an extortion plot. "How do you think NBC got me to do a 10 o'clock show?" he quipped.


Referring to  Robert "Joe" Halderman (Letterman's alleged blackmailer and a 48 Hours producer), Leno said, "It could have been worse – at least it wasn't a producer from To Catch a Predator. That would have been bad."

Leno concluded his monologue by telling his audience, "I'm happy to say that I've never had a sexual relationship with any of my staff members."

Jimmy Fallon also made a jab on his late night show Friday.


"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."
