TORONTO -- The Ford brothers ran a media blitz Monday night and revealed they believe they are still under police surveillance.

Mayor Rob Ford and Coun. Doug Ford's Sun News Network show, Ford Nation, premiered but the embattled brothers also took their fight to cling to power to CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 and in interview with the CBC's Peter Mansbridge.

In all three appearances, Mayor Ford -- who has admitted to smoking crack cocaine -- made it clear he won't be resigning and is gearing up to fight next year's election. Speaking directly to supporters during his Sun News Network show, Ford promised he was going to improve his behaviour.

"It's humbling. I want to thank my supporters for sticking with me. I guarantee you're going to see a change in the next few months," Ford said.

"If I'm not down 30-40 pounds in the next six months then I can eat my words. I haven't touched a drop of alcohol, I'm dealing with a team of professionals. I'm getting the help for, sometimes, sometimes my excessive drinking. Guys, I think this is getting blown out of proportion."

Asked about police surveillance, the Fords admitted they still believe they are being watched by Toronto Police.

"They think I'm stupid," Mayor Ford said. "I knew these people were following me.

"I kept running these plates, calling the police and they were coming back to me saying it was private. We knew we were being followed."
