Piers Morgan Fired From His CNN Show!

The plug has been pulled on Piers Morgan Live!

Bugger and blast!

The CNN nightly news program, hosted by, you guessed it, Piers Morgan, has been plagued by consistently low ratings, including last week when the primetime show scored its second-lowest numbers to date!

The cable news network will now search for someone or something to place in its 9pm slot. An end date for Piers has not yet been decided.

A former judge on America’s Got Talent, Piers replaced Larry King in 2011. The back-talking Brit was candid about why his show failed and spoke over the weekend about his and CNN president Jeff Zucker’s decision to end the program.

Piers admitted:

"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. That’s run its course and Jeff and I have been talking for some time about different ways of using me.”

Sounds like Mr. Morgan might still have a role on the network?

You tried your best, Piers! So, chin up. You’ll get ‘em next time, old boy!

    Are you a communist, Perez? Didnt your family leave Cuba because of communism yet you seem to love and kiss the ass of all the Obama living liberals, as you also appear to be one.

    …it just goes to show you how clueless they are at CNN that they thought this Brit dud would actually make it here…they don't even like him in England

    CNN is American broadcast and should have AMERICAN employees on air… Go home !!!



  8. 8

    That's what happens when you continually go off on extremely biased rants, the people who don't agree get sick of it. Maybe CNN should be less biased.

    I believe he was involved in the phone hacking scandal in the UK, but moreover, his pompous arrogance and venality were always hideous to behold. I think he should return to his homeland. Today. Goodbye and don't let the door hit you on your way out.

    Justin Bieber and One Direction too….deport them all…..

    His show was boring. Too much politics, not enough entertainers. Also, he always was on the attack and left the person he was interviewing feeling on edge from the beginning. Larry King was nice! Piers was not.

    Piers Morgan is a moron. He would never let his guess finish their sentences. Just watch his YouTube. Good news of the month.

    One of the best news we have from CNN. They should have cancelled the show long time ago. Morgan is arrogant and very unpopular.

    This is what we call GOOD RIDDANCE FOR BAD RUBBISH.

    His show sucked anyway. Not surprised. American company for Americans…

    I never understood the popularity of Piers Morgan, Simon Cowell, Justin Bieber, One Direction & Lady Gaga . Send them back to the UK.

    He is just a loud mouth British blow-hard, but is considered an expert on America and everything else. Deport him nowwwwwww !!!!

    :(

    Maybe he can go skate for the Russians. His politics are about right for them. :D

    All in all, Americans don't want to hear an ostentatious Brit lecture us on what we should and shouldn't do. We fought the Revolution so we wouldn't have to listen to that anymore.

  25. RIP Piss Morgan says – reply to this


    25

    This is GREAT NEWS! Piers Morgan is an idiot. Stick an empty 44 Magnum up his butt with a bowl of chilly and deport him back to boring greg cold ol England where he belongs.

    Adious, Mother Fakka !!!

    26

    Yes, we all know that Fox News gets higher ratings but they play to the low class, uneducated, hillbilly racist crowd and there will always be more of those people.
    Please stay.

    Larry King was a lovable, venerable and highly skilled interviewer. Piers Morgan is a paunchy, whiny, irritating, SNOTTY, arrogant, and unlikable personality. He was often pissy and confrontational with his guests. His show failing had NOTHING to do with his supposed "controversial views"…he's was just 100% unlikable.

    Re: skz1 – …..Justin is Canadian. He is here on a work visa. Who was stupid again?

  36. @v@ says – reply to this


    36

    Larry King always let the show be about the guests and not his personal opinion. Piers pushed too hard on that so people tended to interpret his opinion as agenda, and coming from across the pond thus gave him small cred on certain touchy subjects.

  37. Strangeasitmay says – reply to this


    37

    I dont follow Madonna enough to know why this concerns her, but the couple times I browsed his show was all I needed to know that it sucked. I never spent enough time to know if it was him, the format or whatever, all I knew is that it was boring.



  38. 38

    Now he can interrupt himself instead of his guests.



  39. 39

    Celebrate good times !!!

    Re: fickels – EXACTLY! When he was on Celebrity Apprentice, he came off as a complete arrogant douche. Why CNN thought someone with his personality could carry a show and be liked is beyond me.

  41. Anton says – reply to this


    41

    Well yes….he did have some good points about America, it takes someone from the outside to see whats broken. But other than that a Boring left over from British tabloids. May I suggest radio? At least we wont have to erm actualy see him.

    Re: Fuckerman – Re gaga's fan: "Yes, we all know that Fox News gets higher ratings but they play to the low class, uneducated, hillbilly racist crowd"."….. as opposed to playing to the lower class, uneducated violent ghetto crowd…..the crowd that commits most racial warfare in america? (mexican ghetto gangs vs black ghetto gangs in california etc as an example). True thinkers are libertarian.

    I'm not surprised that he was fired. Didn't he get sacked from a job in England for fake photos of British soldiers attacking Iraquis several years back.

    First saw him on Celebrity Apprentice. Rude, abnoxious & low regard for women. Unless you totally agreed with him. His highness returned back to the show a few years later as one of Trumps advisors. I'm not a fan of Morosa, but the way he treated her the 2-ond time around as a contestant once again was dispicable!! Trump just allowed him to do whatever Piers wanted to say to this woman. Doesn't say too much about Trump either.
    Send the Brit back home to his fellow countryman & may he treat them in the same manner he treated us.

    Finally, never liked Piers, Simon Cowell or any arrogant Brit which pretty well is all of them.
    The Canadian and American broadcasters seem to think that the British accent is sophisticated and intelligent. They hire them for voice overs, critics, interviews, commentators and spread them out all over the world. Thanks God our CBC weather girl Claire a Brit is gone too. Send them all back to England and good riddance. We have our own people who can do a far better jobs than these arrogant know it alls. Their arrogance was a novelty and now the fad is over. Wonderful. The Queen is NOT amused. Who care?

    Guns are the reason I don't watch him anymore, everytime I tuned him in he was on the gun kick.

    Now either deport, extradite or have Piers passport revoked while he is over seas. Piers is child stalking, phoning hacking natural for him he is a hack treasonous doctored pictures endangering Anglo/American forces in Iraq creep. He worked for CNN only to avoid the trinity press scandal in Britain leaving Rupert Murdock out to dry who hired the hack out of missplaced kindness. Piers is the Banal bully of New Castle boosting in any pub that lets him in the can whip anyone in fight so he can but then so what? I prefer to wear mini dresses fight like a girl and proud of it. In the end it really doesn't matter but Piers the incontinent leprechaun is too blind and deaf to know. In any case send him to the Crimea to reenact the 1854 Crimean war charge of the light brigade.

    62

    Maybe it was the content not Piers- he's honest and has an opinion- a Brit that challenges the fake American status quo- a threat has to go - maybe if he reported on dsquared2 twins at a whorehouse in Rio- would have boosted ratings.

    63

    Comparing Piers Morgan to Larry King is foolish!

    Piers Morgan asked the interesting questions of the day in a smart and courageous way, at least his opinions were thoughtful and he deserves a lot of credit for standing up against the crazy gun laws and all the killing that goes with it.

    All the best Piers to you and your family and hopefully we'll see you soon!

    Canadian fan.

    I never did like Piers Morgan. Get Larry King back.Replace the show with more variety like news around the world, funny news, weird news, dumb and crazy incidents.Invite the best people like head of states,monarchs,and people in the headlines.invite people with opposing views on current and sensational topics.Hire a liberal and open minded American with no foreign accent that is not aggressive but assertive.Hijack Ed Schultz or the Young Turks.

    Re: Harry Bardoel – Way to go, Harry! I totally agree with you. Piers was one of the most brilliant men, approached today's controversial subjects with bravery, did his homework, knew what he was talking about, and did not let the loudmouths or wrongdoers make him give in or back up. He KNEW what he was talking about and was very tactful, though stern. I enjoyed every minute of his shows and applauded the way he didn't let the controversial 'leaders' get the best of him. He was the greatest interviewer ever, and also the greatest debater to get his point across. And he didn't approach questionable topics, but had the best interest of all Americans in mind. The people who disliked him or disagreed with him were too ignorant to realize what a brilliant man Piers is.

    I will miss Piers Morgan…..I watched him every night…a true gentleman !I guess it is all the gun toting Americans that made it rough for him…..Well let them go on killing each other…until someday, someone, will wake up…..and think he was right! There are too many guns in America. My father was an Army Colonel….he did not believe they had a place in our home…..they belong in the military and with the police……I will miss Piers Morgan….hope he finds a better job ! Carol Lee!

  72. goranx says – reply to this


    72

    Of course - Piers was wrong man for all of you. Americans need more of O'Rilleys, Becks and similar nut-jobs that represent everything that is wrong with you. 200 000 + dead every year by gun violence, and you need Brit to tell you that something is wrong with your society?!?

  73. Michael says – reply to this


    73

    I agree with you comletely Jessica. CNN is biased and it's reporters know nothing about real journalism. CNN is a corporate propaganda machine and nothing more. Personally I find that if I want real news I have to go to alternative media sites on the internet but even then you find the power of persuasion in stories. Everyone has an agenda it seems. Re: Jessicalc

  74. Graham Hutchins says – reply to this


    74

    Piers Morgan was a breath of fresh air… and his focus on the absurdity of our idolatry of guns was and is much needed! We have missed him very much and had to look up what had happened to him.

    75

    You. Have let go some one that was better than good!!! He sold for the truth! I will not be watching who ever takes his place. Jake tapper can not touch Morgan's toes! What a big,big mistake on your part. You loss a viewer!!

  76. Eugene Tannehill says – reply to this


    76

    Thank god he is fiinallly gone. I hated all the anti gun talk he brought up every second or third nightly program. My family and I will watch C N N again now that Pierce Morgan has left . Hope he never returns to C N N .keep America strong and pierce GONE. God Bless America !
