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.

Having less Anderson Cooper on the TV should be a crime, but it’s not and CNN is getting away with canceling another of his shows!
The silver fox’s AC360 Later, which airs at 10 PM, has gotten the ax, like his talk show did last year!
There’s some good news though. You can redirect all of your AC watching to the regular AC360.
So, get those ratings up, people! We need more Coop!
