If you happened to stay up late last night you might have noticed that Craig Ferguson has a bone to pick with the French. Why is he angry? Well it appears a French talk show called Ce Soir Avec Arthur (Tonight with Arthur) is “borrowing” heavily from his show.
Ferguson’s cold open started with a video clip of Arthur coping, very closely one of Craig’s trademark bits involving ridiculous dance numbers with staff members and puppets. The similarities were pretty noticeable, down to the type of puppets used. That in and of itself might not prove Ferguson’s case but then he showed a clip comparing the intro credits for both shows and well, damn! This is beyond coincidence.
Hell! Even the night’s guest Ben Stein suggested Craig sue their asses.
Watch it all go down in this clip where Craig doles out comedic justice before saying he’s going to introduce them to some “good old fashioned American lawyers.”
