Snooki recently appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman to read one of the host’s Top 10 lists.
The topic on deck? Her new book, of course.
At least with the power of Letterman’s writers behind her, the Snooks is actually funny. Check out the video to hear the list.

Stars like Tom Hanks, Betty White, David Spade, Maya Rudolph, Cedric the Entertainer, George Clooney, Jason Alexander, Zack Galifianakis, Drew Carey and the Geico gecko (to name just a few) crowded onto a single set to answer phones for Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Benefit for Autism Education -- and they were just the in-between act. The cable network outdid itself on Thursday night, interspersing live phone segments with the pre-recorded, gala event held weeks ago in New York City.
Highlights from the pre-recorded theater event include the tuneful moment that reunited event host Jon Stewart with former Daily Show contributors Stephen Colbert and Steven Carrell. The latter two delivered a rousing song written for 2008 about Captain Sullenberger. The “Chocolate Rain” YouTube sensation made an appearance, and the song was so good even Jon Stewart was compelled to join in mid-chorus.

David Letterman definitely knew something was off. But despite what his writer previously reported, he did not know what Joaquin Phoenix was up to last year.
That’s why I’m Still Here actor – who reunited with Letterman Wednesday for the first time since February 2009 – felt it necessary to make amends for his little stunt.
“I think that you’ve interviewed many, many people and I assumed that you would know the difference between a character and a real person, so… But I apologize. I didn’t.. I hope I didn’t offend you in any way,” the two-time Oscar nominee said.
“Oh, no – oh, no, no, no, I was not offended,” Letterman replied. “I’m telling you, it was so much fun. It was batting practice, you know what I mean? Every one of them was a dinger.”
“Well, we’d hoped to come on a talk show and I was looking for a beat down, and I got one ... I want to thank you for that,” Phoenix laughed.

For a lot of people, Casey Affleck finally admitting that Joaquin Phoenix had been playing a joke was just as surprising as a Lindsay Lohan relapse. But would you be shocked to know that David Letterman was supposedly in on it?
Although Affleck, the director of the “documentary” I’m Still There, recently claimed Letterman was unaware of Phoenix’s “terrific performance,” a Late Show writer tells an entirely different story.

A lot can change in a person’s life in just 19 months—as David Letterman (and his wife) would know. But how has the past year and a half treated Joaquin Phoenix?
Well, we may get an answer to that question when the Oscar nominee returns to the Late Show next week. That’s when Phoenix—who made a memorably awkward appearance on that program in Feb. 2009—is scheduled to promote his film I’m Still Here.
If Joaquin still isn’t the mood to speak, maybe Dave could at least get Phoenix to do a rap? You better set your TiVos for September 22 just in case.

I have to say - that David Letterman is one confusing guy. One minute, he’s playing nice and inviting you to be in his Super Bowl commercial. The next minute he’s publicly calling you a “boob” behind your back.
On last night’s broadcast, Dr. Phil McGraw quickly regretted bringing up the drama behind the late night wars. “I loved it. It was great fun,” Letterman replied enthusiastically. “I loved Jay summing the whole thing up, ‘Yeah, yeah, well [O’Brien and I] both got screwed.’ I said, ‘Now wait a minute, Jay. You both got screwed and yet you’re the only one who ended up with a show. How did you get screwed exactly?’”
When McGraw tried to come to Jay’s defense, David disagreed. “Believe me, he got everything he deserved,” Letterman insisted. “It was good fun and I couldn’t get enough of it and I wish it was still going on.”
