Piers Morgan Is Nervous About Following In Larry King's Footsteps

piers morgan admits hers nervous about replacing larry king

Who wouldn't be nervous about this???

Last night, at the London launch of his new show Piers Morgan Tonight, Larry King's replacement admitted to being an "absolute institution" about stepping into King's shoes.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"It's like following Sinatra at Vegas. No-one remembers that guy's name."

And more from Morgan:

"I was talking to Bruce [Forsyth] and he said 'I've been trying to crack America for 63 years' and he said 'No offense Piers - you don't sing, you don't dance, you're fairly irritating. How have you managed to do this?'"

Last week, we were less-than-enthusiastic to hear that Piers was reportedly planning on firing the majority of the Larry King staff when he takes over, which is not really cool…especially right before the holidays.

You know one thing that might make the transition smoother, Piers? DON'T FIRE THE ENTIRE STAFF! They've been there for a while, and they know how the show operates. They COULD be worth having on your side.

Think about it!

Do U think Piers Morgan will make a good replacement for Larry King?

    I don't understand why they chose him. ugh.
    at least it's better than ryan seacrest though.

    i would have loved to see anderson cooper fill the position.

    I dislike this man and have since he was a tabloid editor in England. I hope he fails big time and we never hear from him again.

    As long as he listens to the guests and doesn't dominate the conversation or turn it around to make his own points, or talk about himself. Larry is a good interviewer.

    I think Ryan would be better or even Carson Daly. This guy is irritating to listen to and you can tell he got a big ego for a nobody. His rating will drop and CNN will cancel him.

    WHOEVER PICKED THIS BITCH HAS A LAYOFF COMING. HE KNOWS NOTHING OUTSIDE OF POP CULTURE. 75% OF WHAT LARRY KING TALKS ABOUT IS POLITICS AND LAW NONE OF WHICH PIERS MORGAN HAS KNOWLEDGE OF IN THE US. DEPORT HIM BACK TO UK… NO ONE CARES ABOUT THIS BITCH!! THE SAME ASS HOLE WHO THOUGHT SUBO HAD ALL HER MARBLES. NEXT.

    Piers, I am a great fan of Larry King but I know you will do smashing. I watched you on the Apprentice and you were articulate, and dignified and I'm looking forward to watching you.

    Even though I’d barely heard his name before meeting him last night at the Mandarin Oriental I’m not sure he’ll do too well. It’s not even that he insulted Bearsac’s voice (my teddy bear), which was actually cool as I hear he is famous for being insulting. It’s more that he doesn’t seem to have the people skills or charisma, just a big name and ego. If it is true about him considering sacking all or many staff then he is naïve too. I thnk he should be feeling nervous. Maybe they should have asked Bearsac instead.

    What is this "CNN" of which you write?

    WHO CARES ??? No one watches CNN anymore.
    .
    FoxNews Channel has more viewers than ALL the other cable news channels COMBINED.
    .
    FoxNews Channel even had MORE VIEWERS on election night than the BROADCAST networks ABC, CBS or NBC.
    .
    Just lock your remote on the FoxNews Channel, if you want to watch the real news and not just propaganda from those delusional Obama lovers on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS & NBC
