How long before Piers Morgan's show is cancelled ?
His show had the lowest ratings for a CNN primetime program in 21 years. He is insufferable and tedious to listen to. So when is he going back to England ?
I don't understand why he's still on either. Who is he blowing to keep his show?
Why don't they give this to Anderson Cooper? He would be a perfect fit.
R2 why does Anderson always have to be the suggested replacement for hosting something? How about we get some new younger faces on CNN?
Anderson is well-liked in the business and by fans, so that's a good jumping-off point. Piers has been disliked going back to his days as a judge on America's Got Talent.
Hoda Kotb would also do well in this job.

AC is not setting anyone's loins on fire at CNN or in the audience.
Time to fire her and get new blood!
R6 Thank you. Nobody's checking for Anderson anymore. His CNN ratings are dire and his talk show was a total flop. CNN needs a young, cute gay man and needs some new, fresh faces overall.

That's okay for a news reader, but for the Larry King type show, they need someone older who can discuss Mariah Carey as well as Cary Grant and Cary Elwess.
Piers is so much better than Larry King. His show rocks!
That's a really low bar R9
I'm convinced that his phone hacking past and current show have to be correlated.
He has to have dirt on somebody over at CNN.
Why he got a show in the first place is still one of the biggest mysteries in television.
Piers may be bad, but at least he's not "All In with Chris Hayes."
Doesn't he have a two year contract? He'll be gone when that ends. (plus Jeff Zucker will begin heavy revamping soon.)
They can get some new people, like that Strombo guy, but if AC leaves CNN, I'm done with them.
CNN's new ad has Anderson getting top billing so as much as some in this thread want him gone, it doesn't look like it's going to happen.

I'm sure they are quite worried about whether or not you watch r14.
Oh gee sarcasm. Considering that their ratings are in the toilet, they ought to be worried about every viewer they lose R15.
The crazy part is that they could get the old ratings back with Larry King, but it's so not the demo's they are looking for. My parents and that crowd would watch LK until their deaths.
I miss Tom Snyder and his colortinis.
Who watches him?
What's wrong with "All In with Chris Hayes", r12.
I haven't watched his show.
When he gets his teeth fixed.

R20. It's like watching paint dry.
Morgan can only blame himself for losing the show and the viewers. People can tolerate a self righteousness interviewer if they bring some other character trait like humor to balance their narcissism. Morgan is not funny, he reminds me of an undertaker with a superiority complex. Boring, stiff, and annoying.
Hey Piers, don't let your ego hit you in the arse on your way out.
