Piers Morgan’s CNN talk show has been canceled!
Three years after he took over for Larry King’s nighttime show, CNN has decided to pull the plug on Piers Morgan Live. Piers, 48, confirmed the news. “It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings,” Morgan told The New York Times’ David Carr.
CNN’s president Jeff Zucker was the one who decided to cancel the show. “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,” Piers admitted.
The network is now looking to replace Piers, but in the meantime, he claims he’ll still have a job with CNN. “I have been talking for some time about different ways of using me.”
