Larry King Thinks Piers Morgan Is 'Fine'

| Filed under: TV NewsLarry KingPiers Morgan

Larry King and Piers Morgan

Not good…not great…but "fine".

Larry King may have some praise for Piers Morgan, but he admits there are some problems.

While Larry took a trip to London to catch the opening of Anna Nicole Smith, the Opera, he shared his thoughts on his time slot replacement on CNN with a London news outlet.

He thinks "he's a fine broadcaster", then admitted "I haven't seen a lot, but the times I've seen they have been fine", but he did have some insight into the shows lackluster ratings saying:

"One of the problems they did was to oversell it — they said he was going to be dangerous, he was going to be water-cooler talk, it was 'wait till you see me, I'm different.' Well, he's good — but he's not that dangerous."

You hear that Piers? You have to be more dangerous!

Take Larry's advice and you'll be on the air until you're at least 80.

    Larry is a good judge… Pierce is Boring !!!

    Piers lost me when he interviewed the Kartrashians. It showed me that he was just like all of the other kiss up entertainment journalists. If you could call the Kartrashian's entertainment.

    Larry was being gerneous. Piers STINKS ! Literally, and in terms of his interviewing abilities. Sorry, bit I did tell y'all he would bomb…..and ALL the tinkering in the world ain't gonna help this show. A terrible choice to replace Larry, and he will be cancelled inside of six months….Mark My Words….Off to England, Bloated Fat English Man !

    I watch Piers Morgan & I like the show - except - for his interrupting his guests too many times during every show.
    Please piers stop interrupting.

    Re: Kodes100 – I agree 100%. Constant interruptions. Ask a question Piers, and then let THEM answer it!

    So much time has been put into promoting Piers Morgan. Not to mention the money. There was replacement for Larry King. Why market Piers as a replacement? Larry King told a BBC radio show on Thursday that his successor, Piers Morgan, "may have been oversold" This seems to be a given with Morgan's interview surrounding Donald Trump. Instead of getting more answers from Trump, Morgan turned to self-promotion. This made Morgan come off as desperate. Pity, he has experience. Piers Morgan knows better. Get great interviews. Collect stories the public can admire (from those outstanding interviews). Then allow the viewers to enjoy your show. Stop trying to be great, use your talent. Stop trying. Get the interview. Collect the story. Let us like you. Self-promotion at your level in the media is shameless. You come off as a rookie sophmore instead of a professor with an advance degree in journalism. Be Piers Morgan.
