Piers Morgan GONE!

Piers MorganThis move by CNN is long overdue, but it’s finally here. Some time in March, Piers Morgan will need another job, preferably across the pond.

The pompous Brit who would dare lecture Americans about our 2nd Amendment rights it is said, “shot himself in the foot,” when discussing gun control. And there was more.

According to The Wire,

Yes, Piers Morgan Tonight has been cancelled, effective “probably in March,” according to New York Times‘ David Carr. Morgan may stay with CNN “in a different role.”

Morgan replaced Larry King — who was, for many, the face of CNN — in 2011, but his ratings never matched those of his predecessor after an initial honeymoon period when the show first premiered. Competing for America’s cable news attention in the time slot were Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Megyn Kelly and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. Their ratings surpassed (in some cases, far surpassed) his. And Anderson Cooper’s primetime bookends are two of CNN’s highest-rated shows, making Morgan’s look even worse. Last month, CNN got the third-worst ratings in its history.
