Another reason to despise the French [UPDATED]

Ok, to be totally honest, I never have bought into the widespread anti-French sentiment that sweeps the US from time to time. I'm not particularly fond of them either, but if it weren't for France, the United States would have never won the Revolutionary War.

That said, the froggy little bastards have gone too far. They're now stealing American intellectual property:

The show is called "Ce soir avec Arthur" (Tonight with Arthur) and shamelessly rips off elements of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Ferguson's show is unique in the late night talk show genre. Copying the generic American talk show is one thing; stealing Ferguson's ineffable format is just plain despicable. They even have the audacity to post their crap on YouTube.

While CBS airs Ferguson's program, the show is owned by Worldwide Pants, David Letterman's production company. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Dave gets medieval on their ass.


"You are an idiot. That was not a copy. It was... an homage."

So instead of calling the lawyers, Ferguson flies Arthur to LA and confronts him personally, with unexpected results. And then dedicates two more segments of the show to his homage buddy.
