After years of some of the lowest-rated shows in cable news, CNN is about to send Piers Morgan packing.
As far back as October, rumors began circulating that CNN was looking to replace the abrasive Brit, but this weekend The New York Times's David Carr is reporting that the end is near for Piers Morgan's primetime cable news show.
Carr reports that Morgan, whose current contract ends in September, admitted during a phone conversation that he and CNN president Jeffrey Zucker are talking about ending the nightly program that Morgan hosts. Morgan told Carr that he and CNN are discussing how to use him in other ways.
The Times media reporter slammed Morgan as a host who didn't much like his audience.
"There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didnít seem to like America very much," Carr said dryly, "and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor."
By phone, Morgan agreed with Carr that things have not gone well at CNN with Piers Morgan Live. "Itís been a painful period, and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings," Morgan said.
Carr is understating that disconnect. Only days ago Morgan's ratings sunk to near-record lows, reaching a paltry 50,000 viewers in the key 25-43 age demographic. By comparison, Fox News's Megyn Kelly had 354,000 in the same demo.

CNN made the mistake of hiring er O'Merra (His Real Name),, and now keeping him is a bigger mistake. Piers is just a terrible Host, make him a game show sidekick.

The British socialist just like every other socialist on the air can't generate ratings that pay the bills.
none of them ever have, and another bites the dust.
Piers Morgan is a bag of air nobody watches.
