Letterman Apologizes for Lindsay Lohan Top 10 Mixup (VIDEO)

'Late Show with David Letterman' talks Lindsay LohanIf you read the news a couple of days ago, you may have tuned into the 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) to see Lindsay Lohan read the Top 10 last night. Since it's Lindsay, the Internet had a lot of fun talking about it, speculating on the topic of a Lohan-read Top 10, wondering what she might wear and what this means for her career (nothing, really).

Unfortuanately, things didn't work out and Lohan didn't appear. It's still great for the Internet, though, because they then got a second batch of stories about how Lohan wasn't going to be on 'Late Show.' Think of it as a two-for-one special, much like the stories about how Michael Rosenbaum wasn't and then was going to appear in the series finale of 'Smallville.'

But her absence left David Letterman with some explaining to do. According to him, he got a phone call from a guy who said Lohan loved his joke about her during his Grammys Top 10 and wanted to be on the show. But apparently, it wasn't anyone who actually had any say in what she did or didn't do.

"It turns out we were duped," Letterman said. "And I have no one to blame but myself, and boy is my face red." He's talking about the fact that he immediately put together a press release announcing her appearance. Letterman apologized to his audience about the fiasco, and even to Lohan and her family.

It looks like Lohan is pretty good at making it into the news even when she doesn't do anything at all. We do hope, though, that she sees this as an opportunity to get onto Letterman and maybe do a "Top 10 Reasons Lindsay Lohan Couldnt (or Shouldn't) Do the Top 10."

See, there we go speculating about it again, even after it didn't happen.

It's pretty obvious when a 'liberal' has no argument to defend the indefensible like Letterman. They fall
back, 'Retreat to the Rear ', on asinine things like spelling and punctuation.Sad. Oh, by the way, I'm just an
ignorant country boy from Alabama, but I'll go head to head with you any day on whatever subject you would
like to bring up. Have a nice day !

It's really sad when people cannot even spell four-letter words correctly, especially when calling other people idiots. By the way, a plural does not get an apostrophe before the 's' in it. There must be several graduates of the George W. Bush school of grammar here (or I guess that would be "graduate's"). Have a nice day, Dave haters!

If you people all hate Dave so much, why the Hell do you watch? Just change the channel , if you don't like him (duh!). It's really quite simple---trust me. Just because you happen to disagree with something someone says or does doesn't mean they should automatically be kicked off the air or fired. Dave rules! Dave is also pretty intelligent, which is more than I can say for some people who can't even spell or write a simple coherent sentence. Lindsey Lohan is an adult; therefore, SHE is responsible for her own actions and the consequences that go with it.
