Top 10 People Who, Like Lindsay Lohan, Won't Be Reading a List on CBS 'Late Show'

The CBS eye got a little egg on it Wednesday when the network and David Letterman learned they apparently had been misled by someone who said actress Lindsay Lohan would appear on the Thursday, Feb 17 The Late Show with David Letterman to read the Top Ten list. (Later reports identified the third-party negotiator as Lohan's father, with the offer denied once her handlers learned of it.)

Here's the correction from Letterman's production company... and our own list of other people who ALSO won't be appearing on The Late Show...

"Lindsay Lohan will not be delivering a Top Ten list on Thursday's LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, as had been previously announced. We made a mistake. Someone purporting to be a friend of Lindsay's reached out to the show yesterday, allegedly on her behalf, and booked her to appear. Clearly, this person was not authorized to make commitments on her behalf. We wish Lindsay well, and look forward to having her on the show in the future."

In the style of Letterman, we offer the following --

Ten Other People Who Mistakenly Were Assumed Booked On 'The Late Show'

10. Osama bin Laden -- His handlers called, but thought they'd reached "The Goat Show."

9. Moses -- Has contractual obligation to do only one Top 10 per eternity.

8. Miley Cyrus -- It's a solidarity thing among acting-up young women.

7. David Bianculli -- Thought they were offering Top Tenure.

6. The Situation -- The problem here: the higher math.

5. No Number Five -- Writer who talked to "someone purporting to be a friend of Lindsay's" on time out.

4. Dick Van Patten -- Said Eight is Enough.

3. Franz Liszt -- Like Moses, shuns other lists.

2. Tea Party -- Too busy trying to dismantle PBS. CBS, your turn will come.

1. Lindsay Lohan -- "Did I already turn them down? I forget."
