So, this is what put a bug up Craig's ass for Friday's episode of the Late Late Show, starting the 'I am King cuz I say so' rant. We all know the truth, Craig is the King of late night because his viewers and fans named him such, not because CBS announced it.
Clearly NBC is desperate for Conan and Jimmy to do well and this press release is surely a cry for help. They are trying to plant the seed and alter the outcome of the crop...playing "God" if you will. Like a child who pretends to do something great in order to manipulate a parental praise outcome... I believe Conan is not doing as well as they had hoped but then again, he's only been on a couple of weeks. And Jimmy Fallon's critics are not softening their blows. Odd how this press release came out on the heels of the previous ratings release where Craig is beating Jimmy. Hey NBC, everyone is turned off by the smell of desperation...
Craig, you keep on doing what you do baby, keeping that Late Late Show train chugging, cuz we're always at the next stop waiting to go for a ride...and YOU ARE the very King of Late night, so get used to it biatch.
The infamous release...
