Emmy snub leaves David Letterman only late night host working Monday

David Letterman didn't attend the Emmys, so he had the only new late night show on TV Monday.

Seth Meyers was hosting the Emmys, Jimmy Fallon was there, as was Jimmy Kimmel, Chris Hardwick and Stephen Colbert. Jon Stewart and "The Daily Show" team were nominees. Conan O'Brien and Chelsea Handler were both off. But David Letterman once again went without a single nomination, so he had the only new late night TV show on Monday night.

Don't cry too hard. Letterman has received more than his share of Emmy love over the years, with "Late Show" winning six Emmys since 1993. And over the course of his broadcasting career on both NBC and CBS, Letterman himself is one of the most nominated people ever, with 52 nominations.

But rather than dwell on his lack of Emmy joy this year, Letterman got guest Michael Cera to recount the time he pranked an entire Sundance Film Festival audience and got his poor friend Adam hissed by a room full of strangers.

So what did his friend do? And why did Letterman tell Cera that he "should be banned for life?"
