With familiarity, Letterman jokes about Woods

NEW YORK

Letterman was off last week and opened his monologue Monday with the subject of Woods, even though the late night host is only weeks removed from his own scandal.

Letterman said, "Boy, it looks like that Tiger Woods is having some trouble, huh?"

In October, Letterman admitted to workplace affairs police say led to a blackmail plot. Woods last week admitted letting his family down with "transgressions" that became known following a Thanksgiving weekend car crash outside his Florida home.

Letterman asked the audience members to clap if they thought Woods was a "jerk." Letterman then asked them to clap if they thought he was a jerk. Some clapped for each.
