Craig Ferguson talks about the competition

Craig Ferguson had a press conference this morning at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour. Rob Owen of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who has essentially been liveblogging the sessions, is first on the scene with a report:

Promoting his show -- in an attempt to blunt the impact of NBC's upcoming debut of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" -- Ferguson said he thinks he an Fallon will draw different audiences.

"Jimmy's competition is [Cartoon Network's] Adult Swim, I think," Ferguson said. "I don't think it's me. I will challenge you all to give Jimmy a month before you review him. That would be fair, I think."
We'll keep tabs on the other critics covering the tour, to see if any other news tidbits leak out.

    Sorry, Jimmy, but Craig is my man! (Not in that way, Meagan...) To me, there's just no competition.

    In fact I've started a huge campaign to get on Craig's show as a guest and emails have been flooding CBS. :)
