Osama bin Laden was killed this week in Pakistan (death photo or not, the loser is history, people), where he had been laying low in a compound for some time.

What must it have been like to live near the guy in Abbottabad?

David Letterman and The Late Show staff examined that very subject last night with a list of Top 10 great things about being Osama bin Laden's neighbor.

It starts off slow, but really gets good around #6 ...

David Letterman was joking around with Dr. Phil last night, only he wasn't really joking when it came to Donald Trump's criticism of President Obama.

He began by asking Phil about Trump, and Phil didn't really bite. What Dave was really doing was giving himself his own segue to lay into the Donald.

Dave said, flat-out, that beyond the birth certificate, Trump's questioning of Obama - how he got into Harvard, how he wrote his memoirs - is racist.

“It smacks of racism,” said Letterman, noting that while it's all a giant media circus to a degree, “Nobody should be amused by that tactic.”

Trying to diffuse things, Dr. Phil said he doesn’t think Trump “has a racist bone in his body," but rather "just doesn’t think things through.”

Dave scoffed and said if Trump returns to The Late Show - “and I’m not sure that we want him back” - he “ought to be prepared to apologize.”

David Letterman apologized for the Lindsay Lohan fiasco on the Late Show last night. Not that it was sincere by any means, but better than nothing.

The host is bent out of shape by the incident in which he booked Lindsay on his show, only to have the troubled star claim she never agreed and bail.

That's because an impostor - later revealed to be that douchenozzle Michael Lohan - set it up without her consent, for which Dave blames himself.

Here's his hilarious, non-heartfelt apology ...

Lindsay Lohan will unveil the nightly Top Ten list on The Late Show with David Letterman Thursday. She's scheduled to, anyway. Who knows if she'll show!

Just kidding. Mostly. Lohan will appear via satellite from L.A., so there's a chance this actually happens. Either way, she's a Top Ten List fixture already.

Sunday, the talk show host poked fun at Lohan in Top Ten List called "Surprises at the 2011 Grammy Awards." Among the shockers on Sunday night:

"Lindsay Lohan seen leaving Staples Center with a Grammy-shaped bulge," Dave said of felony charge she faces for allegedly stealing a $2,500 necklace.

Days earlier, he also did a Top Ten List devoted entirely to Lindsay Lohan and the signs that she is out of control these days. Dina will be so pissed ...

Anderson Cooper i a lucky man and he knows it.

The CNN anchor, who was attacked in Egypt last week, appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman last night and detailed his experience in the volatile nation. Responding to what it was like to be "pummeled," Cooper said he and his crew tried to speak with Hosni Mubarak supporters.

They responded by hitting, slapping and even trying to tear the clothing off female crew members. As the Silver Fox says here, though, it could have been a lot worse...

Howard Stern appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman last night and stayed true to a vow he made earlier in the day:

The radio host simply went off on Jay Leno. Saying he follows the late night talk show wars like "The Torah," Stern referred to The Tonight Show host as someone "horrible" with "no talent."

Letterman simply laughed along with Stern, who didn't give the CBS icon much time to respond. Instead, he continued on about Regis, Bill Cosby and a great deal more. Check out the interview now and then choose your team:

Which late night side are you on?

Two months after his infamous interview on The View, in which Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg stormed off the set because they disagreed with his take on the Ground Zero Mosque, how does Bill O'Reilly feel about that incident?

Just dandy, thanks for asking!

Appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman last night, the Fox News host recounted his feelings when all this went down: "I was thinking, 'This is great. This is terrific. I hope they all leave. Then I'll take the whole show. I'll have 45 minutes of ABC airtime.'"

O'Reilly and Letterman also discussed Sarah Palin's run for presidency and enjoyed a somewhat serious debate about President Obama:

David Letterman and Joaquin Phoenix reunited on The Late Show this week, 18 months after the infamous interview in which Joaquin acted like a bizarre version of Joaquin as part of the faux documentary about his life, I'm Still Here.

Letterman's question to him now: "So what do you have to say for yourself?"

"Well, thank you for letting me come on the show last time," Phoenix replied.

Dave and Joaquin

Joaquin, clean-shaven, returns to face the music.

I'm Still Here, Joaquin's elaborate piece of performance art, was summed up by Dave as such: "You know, I've always liked you ... and then, a year-and-a-half ago, you come out and, honestly, it's like you slipped and hit your head in the tub."

"And I knew immediately when you sat down, something ain't right, because if you're really the way you appeared to be... you don't go out."

Watch the clip of their exchange after the jump ...

Anyone who saw Joaquin Phoenix on Letterman last year knew something strange was up with the actor, but he sold it so well, we weren't entirely sure what.

Casey Affleck confirms that Phoenix was just acting when filming the faux documentary I'm Still Here, which Affleck directed. And what a performance it was.

Letterman in Action

Joaquin Phoenix promoting his rap career on The Late Show.

"It's a terrific performance, it's the performance of his career," Affleck tells The New York Times of Phoenix's partying, impromptu rapping and unkempt look.

"I never intended to trick anybody," adds Affleck, who never thought people would think I'm Still Here was serious. "The idea of a 'hoax' never entered my mind."

Guess Joaquin is just that good an actor.

David Letterman's blackmailer is out of a New York City jail after serving four months behind bars for his attempted extortion of the Late Show host last year.

The former CBS News producer, who ignited the celebrity sex and crime scandal in October, got two months knocked off his sentence for good behavior.

WHACKED: Halderman's attempt to bilk Letterman backfired.

Halderman infamously demanded $2 million to keep quiet about Dave's affair with Stephanie Birkitt, a former staff member who was living with Halderman.

He blackmailed Letterman, who is married to Regina Lasko, under the guise of offering him the exclusive rights to a screenplay about his life, and the affair.

Needless to say authorities didn't buy the "screenplay" bit and he took a plea deal earlier this year. Halderman still must do 1,000 hours of community service.
