What did CBS edit? Johnny Rotten on Craig Ferguson

Does anyone have the east coast version of the Craig Ferguson show from November first (Thursday night)?

Craig was interviewing Johhny Rotten, and Rotten started talking about his appearance the night before on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Rotten began making hand-gestured Hitler impersonations saying (mocking NBC execs) "Don't talk about the war."

Rotten then began to talk about "Ron Paul, a Republican running for President who has the gall to enjoy "Anarchy in the U.K." Rotten then raised his fist in an apparent salute to Ron Paul and stated "You have an election coming up in 2008 ... it's going to get exciting."

Then, there is a big edit. What's missing?

It jumps from a jubilant Rotten appearing about to speak more about Ron Paul, to a clearly dejected Rotten sitting quietly for Craig's next question... which Rotten jokingly pretends not to hear.

Apparently they had time to kill at the end of the show, as they ran the enitre credits, full-screen at slow speed. I've never seen this on his show. Was it because they had to cut so much of what Rotten said?

And, Ferguson's closing comments indicated he "tried" to interview the Sex Pistols... as if something extraordinary had happened. Nothing extraordinary happened on the west coast fee.

What did Johnny say?

Don't forget to DONATE November 5th
