Letterman's admirers are applauding the host for revealing embarrassing details about liaisons with staff members as he explained the extortion plot. Drew Barrymore sent Dave well wishes on "Today" this morning, saying, "I wish them the best because that's an unfortunate situation."

Today, Letterman's accused extortionist, Joe Halderman, was indicted on one count of first-degree grand larceny, to which he pled not guilty. His bail has been set at $200,000.
