The embattled Toronto mayor is speaking to U.S. cable news networks prior to the debut of his own show, "Ford Nation."

Rob Ford Fox News - H - 2013 
Toronto mayor Rob Ford is chatting with U.S. cable news networks ahead of his new 
Canadian television show debut this week.

The ongoing saga of Rob Ford — the embattled Toronto mayor who admitted to smoking crack — is the kind of thing Saturday Night Live writers dream of. But Rob Ford is no pipe dream.
If this had happened during the Chris Farley era of SNL, we all know who would have been enlisted to play the role of Ford. But Bobby Moynihan gallantly stepped up to the plate, dusting off his best Canadian accent, his best crazy-eyed stare and his best all-around erraticism to bring new life to the disgraced mayor.
The sketch kicked off last night’s episode (hosted by Lady Gaga) and, of course, smoked Ford. But another target of the SNL writers’ snark was 60 Minutes, the show that will apparently believe just about anything anyone says — even Ford, who’s known, shall we say, to bend the truth.
