Piers Morgan Pulls His Weight, Doubles Larry King's Average

piers morgan pulls his weight

Congratulations, Piers!

The first show of Piers Morgan Tonight, which featured Oprah as a guest, brought in 2.1 million viewers on Monday night.

This is more than pret-ty impressive, given the fact that his viewership was up 219% in comparison to the fourth quarter average for Larry King Live.

Looks like he's still got some competition though, as Fox News' Hannity ended up on top with 2.4 million viewers.

Keep up the good work and lay off of Madonna and we think your show will be in fantastic shape, Piers!

Did U tune in for Piers Morgan's first show?

    the reason ??? no competition this guy is a flash in the annoying pan



  2. 2

    No, but I'm going to watch Howard tonight.

    Who ever thought that having Oprah on Morgans opening night needs to be fired. It sets him up to fail.
    1. Debut so you get the " I wonder viewers"
    2 You get he Oprah viewers..
    Massive numbers….
    Then a few other big names for the first week…….more numbers.
    Next the numbers plummet……………….

    He was soooooo annoying during that interview. I could only watch about six minutes…….

    Piers is smart, but too mean spirited, I won't watch him.



  6. 6

    its all down hill from here , the fucker was lame at the awards .



  7. 7

    sorry wrong box :( , anyways , watched it and bore me to sleep . ignore the last comment of mine .



  8. 8

    I watched five minutes. Piers was trying too hard; Oprah was running the show and her mouth. Boring and painful at the same time.



  9. 9

    I will not watch his show,he is verry irritating and annoying.

    His ratings are high because people always watch something new, especially if it's been hyped for weeks. I was a fan of Larry King as I thought he was a great interviewer. We'll see if Piers Morgan allows the guests to talk without interrupting and talking about himself….Leno does that which is very annoying and why I don't watch him any more. Piers should improve with time and hopefully become a little more laid back.

    He's done how many shows so far? Whatever his numbers are right now, look at them after a month or two. I refuse to believe the show will last. I'm still wondering why he was chosen for this gig. What exactly has he done to warrant any hosting chair?

    I believe he's so voguin' to have Madonna on his show.
    He's just asking for America's attention, ’cause he's still a nobody after all his TV appearances in all these years.
    It's easy to dissect him; once someone has found him out, he's immediately all smoke & mirrors.
    He's actually afraid of Madonna - ’cause she could be more intelligent than him!
