David Letterman is a veteran of the TV biz, but he's still got empathy for the newbies!
On Monday's Late Show, the funnyman turned his attention to A.J. Clemente, the North Dakota news anchor who was recently fired after cursing within his first few seconds on air.
"I feel so bad for this guy," Letterman quipped. "This is like a page torn from the Dave Letterman book of life!"
Clemente also became the subject of what most local reporters can only ever dream of: Letterman's Top 10 List.
