Piers Morgan quits

Piers Morgan in Burger King Flame Fragrance Advert

We’re starting the week with good news!

Three years after taking over for Larry King in CNN’s plum 9 pm slot, the insufferable Piers Morgan has seen the ratings for his show, “Piers Morgan Live,” hit some new lows.

Piers said last week that he and CNN president Jeffrey Zucker had been talking about the show’s failure to connect and had decided to pull the plug, probably in March.
Piers said, “It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings. Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it. That’s run its course and Jeff and I have been talking for some time about different ways of using me.”

Sadly, this doesn’t mean we won’t see Piers anymore.

The supercilious Brit said he was interested in doing fewer appearances to greater effect — big, major interviews that would be events in themselves. Plans for a replacement at the 9 o’clock hour are still underway, but Piers and CNN are in talks about him remaining at CNN in a different role.

I am glad to see him go. He might have been a success, had he not been such and insufferable arrogant snob.

The headline really made me happy, but when I read the article it says CNN may keep him on but in a different role. Hopefully it wont be an “on-air” role. Somehow the role of janitor seems rather suited to his ability.

Have y’all heard the excuse that the reason is because Americans just can’t relate to him because of his British accent?! Lmao!!!!

Janitorial Assistant sounds about right since he can’t seem to clean up any mess he’s responsible for on either side of the Atlantic. Sorry, that’s an insult to the Janitorial Assistants of the world. How about CNN Weather Chief … in Antarctica!

I have friends in England who say they don’t want him back either. Antarctica might be an alternative for him. Better yet, send him to the middle east and let him suck up to the Muslim fanatics and see how far he gets, with his head left in place.
