Craig Ferguson: 'I Am King' rantings...

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...
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – June 11, 2009 – Conan is the new King of Late Night. "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" was the dominant winner in its first week on the air, delivering huge margins of victory in every ratings category. "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" won the week of June 1-5 with a 2.3 rating in the key measure of adults 18-49, the highest rated week for "The Tonight Show" in more than four years, and a towering 156 percent margin over CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" in adults 18-49. Even excluding the highly rated premiere show on June 1, Conan won the week with a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 and by 111 percent over the CBS program (0.9).

special thanks to Knighter86 for their contribution


  1. Dirty move there by nbc ;) Btw, do anyone know where you can get ratings for all the shows? I've been trying to find it by my google skills seems to be disfunctioning at the moment.

  2. Well now I totally understand why Craig was getting so annoyed about it all...I would be too. But like you said Malinky, we all know that Craig is the King of Late Night =]

  3. I have no problems with Conan getting the title, I like him.

    For me, Craig is The King anyway, no matter who does or doesn't call him that - he's just awesome the way he is. And he doesn't need anybody plugging him and sending out press releases. He shouldn't worry about Conan, really.

  4. Hey Malinky,

    as I don't have any YouTube account, I could never say thank you - until I discovered this blog of yours.
    That show I really love so much and, like so many other fans worldwide, I truly appreciate your work! Thank you very much for the uploads without which I could not watch and enjoy Craig here in Germany. You're just great for sharing the show with us.

  5. Just like Simo I want to sincerely thank you for your much appreciated efforts, Malinky. You're making a lot of people happy who otherwise wouldn't be able to see 'that Scottish Conan guy'. :-)

  6. Everything I can say is that I heard that Connan is again going under Letterman, I think that people were just curious how he will act so "soon". I like Connan as well but, you know, I just took the "lets worship David Letterman" thing from Craig

  7. hey Malinky, greetings from turkey, your youtube channel is -sort of- my CBS, well coz we don't get Craig here =) -they somehow show conan, but WHY?-

    anyway thank you for the uploads =)

    and reporting from Turkey:
    Craig is the king of Late Night. Period. (eheh)

  8. Craig IS the King of all Late night, and will continue to be! The man has more talent, imagination, and creativity than all the rest of them combined, and no press release will change that. And we, as Craig's loyal subjects, will continue to follow our funny, silly, and ever-so-sexy King, wherever he may go.

  9. i believe craig is king. nbc is screwed, man. fallon looks terrified, like he's gonna wet his pants or sumtin, all the time. conan just isnt funny. there isnt even a point where you giggle during his show. letterman gets a giggle every now and then. his show is only good for watching lately for the whole palin thing. i laugh through craig's WHOLE show.

    nbc is SCREWED.
