CNN Hires New Talent Booker, Tries To "Save" Piers Morgan

piers morgan gets new talent booker

Looks like the CNN crowd aren't the key demographic for the Kardashians

After Piers Morgan Tonight's ratings hit a new low during his interview with Kim and Kourtney, CNN decided to hire a new talent booker for the show.

They brought on ABC News veteran Katie Thompson, who's known for working with Barbara Walters. In fact, she helped make the Barbara/Monica Lewinsky interview in 1999 happen. Pret-ty impressive.

Guess we'll see if this new talent booker is able to bring in the guests who'll bring in the ratings.

Do U think this new move will help Piers Morgan's show gain viewers?

    He's really dreadful. He cuts guests off and doesn't come back to a question that gets sidetracked. The other night Dan Rather was on and as he was saying, "If I were Obama, I would"…(in regard to the situation in Egypt) and Piers cut him off. I really wanted to hear what Dan had to say. I vowed then I would not attempt to watch again.

    That's a really nice suit. Too bad he's fugly.



  3. 3

    They need to get rid of his train wreck publicist Megan McPartland. That girl is a floosy in a half. Maybe with a more professional publicist and one who isn't given head to every exec for every position she has gotten might bode well for him. Just saying. Get rid of the slut and get on with it.

    he's horrible!!! get him off!!! and the person that hired him for CNN should be fired as well!!! SUCKSSS!!!
    they should show him begging Madonna to be his guest so he can keep his job!!!
    LOL get him off!!!

    SEE…. HOWARD STERN WAS FUCKING RIGHT!!!! HE SAID MORGAN WOULD BE CANCELED WITHIN 3 MOS AND DOUCHE BAG TO THE MAX FORMER UK TABLOID EDITOR (WHO WAS FIRED FOR SETTING UP UK SOLDIERS) PIERS MORGAN LAUGHED. SMH. THEN BUMPED INTO STERN AT THE GARDENS AND TOLD STERN HE SHUD WORK ON HIS CAREER AND HE COULD "HELP HIM". WTF!! THE ISSUE IS THIS. PIERS MORGAN IS FUCKING LAME RETARD FROM THE UK THAT NO ONE GIVES 2 FUCKS ABOUT IN THE US OTHER THAN AS A LAME TALENT CONTEST JUDGE. PEOPLE IN THE US ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THESE NO TALENTS BRITS INVADING US TV WITHOUT OUR APPROVAL. ON TOP OF THAT HE SUCKS AS AN INTERVIEWER AND THE LAME FORMAT THAT WORKS IN THE UK HAS NO BIZNESS IN THE STATES. HE'S A FAIL. GET RID OF HIM. HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT US CULTURE, POLITICS, HISTORY, AND THE LIST GOES ON. THAT'S WHY HE'S STUCK INTERVIEWING BRITS THAT NO ONE CARES ABOUT. BARBARA WALTERS WAS ON LAST NITE AND SKOOLED THIS IDIOT ON WORLD AFFAIRS AND SHE'S JUMPED THE SHARK AT 90 ALREADY!! JUST SHOWS HE'S A TOTAL LOSER. LIKE, WHY NOT HAVE A CNN REALITY CONTEST WHERE WE CAN VOTE ON THE NEXT SHOW HOST BASED ON A SERIES OF REPORTING TASKS. BETCHA THAT GETS 10X THE VIEWING AUDIENCE AS PIERS MORGAN. CNN IS SOOO LAME AND STUCK IN THAT ONE DIMENSIONAL BOX CALLED A RATINGS FAIL WITH 90 YR OLDS MAKING THE DECISIONS. NO WONDER ALL THEIR TOP ANCHORS HAVE LEFT ALREADY. BOTTOM LINE, MORGAN HAS TO GOOOO… NEXT.

    HOWARD STERN'S RANT WAS RIGHT. HE STARTED AT SIRIUS RADIO WITH LIKE 60K PAYING AUDIENCE SUBSCRIBERS AND NOW HIS SIRIUS LISTENERS IS CLOSE TO LIKE 8 MIL OVER 4YRS. AND THAT'S "PAYING" SUBSCRIBERS. PIERS MORGAN IS FREE AND GETS BEATEN BY A COOKING SHOW ON AN UNKNOWN CABLE NETWORK. YAAAWN, HE NEEDS TO GO. I RATHER WATCH WATER BOIL.

    Re: RoflcopterToTheRescue – That is a nice suit! Alexander Skarsgard would look fine in that! (Or anything) (or nothing)

    Well it's one of two things. It's either Piers is a terrible tv show host or the Klowntrasians are loosing followers which is what I hope is the case. They are getting old and boring. Who wants to see them on every single talk show so let's kill two birds with one stone, fire his ass and let's all forget that the Klowntrasians exist and they can go away. Win win for all of us.



  9. 9

    He has a problem with interrupting people at the most important moments.



  10. 10

    Did I not tell y'all that having Piers as host would sink the show ? ! I mean, WHAT was CNN thinking ? Piers is a boring, arrogant, fat-assed GasBag, who does SUCH a poor inter-view ! Again, Mark My Words….the show will be canned inside of a year ! So desperate…puh-lease ! The Kartrashians ? ! ! Buh Buh, Piers !



  11. 11

    He is FUGLY…and smells ! I know people who know people, and they say he always has an 'odour' about him….basically akin to someone who does not properly wipe their arse apres (French for 'after') a big dump !



  12. 12

    He always looks as though he is passing gas, which, I am guessing, he is. I mean, he is a bit of a FATTY !



  13. 13

    …though he has 'such a pretty face' ! ;) .



  14. 14

    It's not his guests, it's him unfortunately. I miss Larry :(

  15. CesX says – reply to this

    Re: justbored… – Agreed!

    He is a great presenter. People need to get used to him. They should start the change by choosing a better scenario. The one now is so bright and tasteless. I get distracted by the bright colors. Dark colors make it cozier and elegant. I hate that scenario.



  17. 17

    why aren't you posting comments terd face? Piers lost me as a part-time viewer once he had those skank kartrashians on, the only interview I watched was Howard Stern, but Piers lost me as a viewer once he had those bimbos on.



  18. 18

    Can't save this mess.



  19. 19

    When you only report one side of the story, expect to fail.

    When I see people watching CNN at the gym, I know they're uneducated, partisan, and don't want to really hear another point of view - that's CNN.

    Replacing Piers Morgan will bring in more viewers in this time slot. He thinks his cookie cutter and condescending questions are brilliant. Maybe he should let his guests answer them before they are cut off with yet another smug or presumptuous remark or question. People are tuning in for the guest and what they have to say and not for Piers–something he seems to have forgotten. He comes across as very arrogant and smug.



  21. 21

    It's him. He's horrible and has no relevancy in America. We don't like him. We liked Larry King! You can't replace a KING with a pawn. Find someone who we can respect. Then we might watch and let the person's show take shape. One more time, CNN, we don't like him. And I know Anderson likes his news reporting, but he has the charisma and savvy interviewing skills to have rode that 9pm hour into new glory. Or get a woman, for god's sake! Why do men always get the gigs?



  22. 22

    THIS DOUCHE BAG IS DOOMED, WATCHED HIS SHOW WITH MIDGET AND FAT ASS WHOREDASHIANS, WASN'T SURE WHO WAS THE BIGGER MORON! IT WAS LIKE WATCHING PAINT DRY, IT WAS PAINFUL TO WATCH. BUT THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN, PIERS HAS THE PERSONALITY OF USED TOILET PAPER! THEY SHOULD HAVE GIVEN THAT SPOT TO ANDERSOR COOPER OR KATHY GRIFFIN!!



  23. 23

    The problem is Piers Morgan, not the guests.



  24. 24

    maybe this douchbag should asks mercy for madonna's appearance now. now that his show is stinking fast.



  25. 25

    Madonna
    Ba-ha-ha-ha



  26. 26

    cooooool



  27. 27

    conan 2.0 except larry has the class not to take his show back



  28. 28
