He reportedly wrote a letter to the network's exec Jeff Zucker, stating that their interview with alleged victim Beverly Johnson isn't on the up and up. He encouraged them to get in contact her live-in boyfriend Mark Burk, whom she was with from 2006-2009, and to listen to his side of that time in her life.

Filed under: TV NewsPiers MorganNews

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:

Jay Leno Already Getting Job Offers Before Being Bumped Off Tonight Show! You Won’t Believe Who Wants To Hire Him!

Filed under: TV NewsJay LenoGIFs

Jay Leno, the man with the highest ratings in late night TV, is about to be out of a job!

The long-time Tonight Show host will step down in February and allow Jimmy Fallon to take over at 11:35. But unlike the Conan O’Brien debacle of 4 years ago, this time, Jay will be gone from the NBC show for good.

So where does a workaholic like Jay go from here??

The offers for a new gig are ALREADY pouring in from networks who want Jay to come bat for their team! And some of these suitors are pretty surprising!

For starters, we hear Jay is being tapped for a show on CNN! The cable news channel is now being run by Jeff Zucker, the man who orchestrated the first ouster of the late night king from the Tonight Show in 2009 when he was President of NBC!

Would Jay really want to go work for the guy who almost ruined his career??

Sources say the two met for a meeting in Burbank recently to discuss potential projects!

Anderson Cooper And Kathy Griffin Film A CNN Pilot Together!! New Show Might Be In The Works!

anderson cooper kathy griffin cnn pilot

Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin could be heading to CNN as a permanent duo!

According to Deadline, the two filmed an hour long pilot today at CNN studios in New York’s Time Warner Center in front of a live audience. Apparently, CNN president Jeff Zucker was in attendance, too!

Though the details are unclear, it seems Jeff, in an attempt to change things up for the news network, might be hoping to rake in some ratings with the usually well-received Kathy and Anderson.

Need we remind you of Kathy’s hilarious New Year’s Eve kiss? Anderson’s reaction was PRICELESS! LOLZZZ!

We really, REALLY hope this is true!!

elisabeth hasselbeck may have a new job at cnn

If the rumors of Elisabeth Hasselbeck's imminent departure from The View are true, it sounds like she'll have no problem landing on her feet!

After all, homegurl IS a survivor! Ha!

With Soledad O'Brien and Roland Martin recently getting the axe, it looks like new network president Jeff Zucker is playing a little game we like to call Extreme Makeover: CNN Edition! A source close to the situation says they are definitely looking to fill some of these open anchor positions, and Elisabeth could be on their short list:

Anderson Cooper 360° Is Cut Down To 180°!

Filed under: TV NewsAnderson Cooper

anderson cooper 360 cnn axe

This is more shocking than when Kathy Griffin kissed his crotch!!!

It saddens us to report that we will no longer be getting a double helping of Anderson Cooper on CNN!

The Silver Fox's weekday nighttime show, Anderson Cooper 360°, will continue to air new episodes at 8pm, but it will no longer air repeats at 10pm.

Say it isn't so!!!

The axe is due to major changes at the network by chief Jeff Zucker, who plans to give a new hire the 10pm slot.

Keith Olbermann Opens Up About Leaving MSNBC And Joining Current TV

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteBusiness Blitz

keith olbermann on leaving msnbc and joining current tv

Now that Keith Olbermann has his new show Countdown and is bringing together his contributors, he seems to be in a pret-ty secure position, and has finally decided to open up about leaving MSNBC and joining Current TV

Here are a couple of the reasons that Olbermann gives for joining Current TV:

- He got a pay raise from $7 million to $10 million/year
- He has has been named chief news officer for Current TV, and has been given an equity stake in the network

And here's more from Olbermann on his move from MSNBC to Current TV:

"It's been fascinating, to see the assumption that this is some sort of bizarre move for me. I have achieved what I wanted to achieve. I'm better off at some sort of independent place where they not only like what I produce but also trust me to be the one to produce it."

And here's Olbermann on how he got into MAJOR TROUBLE at NBC by gossiping about Jeff Zucker during the Comcast merger:

"There was a lot of speculation about what would happen. One surprisingly accurate bit of speculation on every floor of the building was, 'I betcha they don't keep Jeff.' And apparently he heard that I had said this. I was there and I was a convenient punching bag and everybody would believe everything they said about me. And so off I went."

Sorry to hear about the drama, but def sounds like Keith's move from MSNBC to Current TV was a positive one in quite a few ways. More money, more power, AND more creative freedom? Sounds good to us!

What do U think about Keith's reasons for moving to Current TV after MSNBC? Would U do the same thing?
