The segment seems to parody the 1976 film Network about a fictional television network's news caster who is to be fired until he starts ranting live about how life sucks causing the program's ratings to skyrocket.
The segment began when Tom Tucker, the male lead co-anchor, heard him rant to a clerk at Lackluster Video about the status of pornographic video in American society, and that in fact pornography is not condemned in the bible. He also rants that the Bible is too long. The store, formerly known as Sal's Video, had just been bought out by Lackluster, who takes a no-porn stand. Tucker offered Griffin the chance to do a segment on the news ranting about various topics and Griffin accepted.
In his very first segment, he reveals that Lindsay Lohan irks him.
You know what really grinds my gears?! When MSLB wants me to take her to work at a specific time, so I plan accordingly, only to have her tell me she changed her mind and wants to go in an hour later. I WOKE UP AT FUCKING 5:30AM FOR NOTHING?! SON OF A BITCH! I CAN'T JUST TURN THE SLEEP BUTTON ON/OFF LIKE YOU CAN, YOU CRAZY DEVIL WOMAN!
