Rachel Maddow To Bill O'Reilly: How Does It Feel To Be King? (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

If Rachel Maddow sat down with Bill O'Reilly, she would ask him how it feels to be king of cable news.

Maddow was a guest on Wednesday's "Watch What Happens Live" where she played a game of "Rapid Fire Rachel." She said the first question that came to mind if she were to interview a number of celebrities, including Bill O'Reilly.

After pausing a moment, Maddow said, "How hard is it just to be the king, man? You're the greatest. It must be hard to be surrounded by people not as amazing as you. How do you handle the rest of humanity when you're so great?"

O'Reilly has had the top program on cable news for 173 consecutive months. He once trumpeted his ratings after Maddow criticized Fox News.

Maddow responded, "You can insult us all you want, Mr. O'Reilly, about television ratings and you'll be right that your ratings are bigger for now and maybe forever. You are the undisputed champion. But even if no one watches us at all, except my mom and my girlfriend and people who forgot to turn off the television after Keith, you are still wrong on what really matters, and that would be the facts, your Highness."

On Wednesday, Maddow said that her question to Lindsay Lohan would simply be, "Are you okay?" She also performed a spoken word version of Lil Jon's song lyrics.
