Just three years after Piers took over in Larry King’s spot, ratings have fallen and the decision has been made to pull the plug on the show.
The show’s ratings have fallen from an audience of two million to around 270,000.
Piers Morgan stated, “It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings. CNN’s audience has tired of hearing a Brit weigh in on American cultural issues”.
Morgan stated, “Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarising, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it”.
One of Morgan’s most difficult shows saw him interview pro-gun campaigner Alex Jones. Their debate was very heated, ending with Jones organizing a petition to have Morgan deported.
He also went head to head with rocker Ted Nugent.
