In a St. Patrick’s Day visit with David Letterman on CBS’ “Late Show,” Will Ferrell described seeing Fox News host Bill O’Reilly in the audience at the 40th anniversary “SNL” special–not seemingly enjoying the show. “I don’t know if he got a wrong seating assignment, or something, or what, but just a real sourpuss.”

Letterman, who described O’Reilly as “nothing if not happy-go-lucky,” concluded it was “hard to explain” what might have been on the FNC host’s mind. Perhaps O’Reilly will address the issue on “The O’Reilly Factor” tonight.
