CNN has decided to cancel Piers Morgan Live after a three year run. Morgan broke the news in an interview with David Carr of The New York Times.
He said, “It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings” and noted that the final episode would likely end in March. Morgan is expected to stay at CNN in some capacity.
It’s unclear what CNN will do with the 9pm hour. When ABC News Nightline anchor Bill Weir was hired by the cable channel late last year, it was rumored that he might replace Morgan. At the time, CNN denied he was a replacement.
What do you think? Did you like Piers Morgan Live? Are you sorry that it’s been cancelled? Would you watch another Morgan-hosted show?
