Well, well, well. Here comes another pompous big mouth Brit twit, Piers Morgan, who will be replacing the cadaver-like Larry King at CNN, promising that he’ll beat Fox News’ primetime ratings.
Yeah, whatever dude. Take another hit off the bong.
We’ve heard this claim from no-talent blowhards such as Keith Olbermann (aren’t you NFL fans glad NBC dumped that loser from Football Night in America?), Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, etc., etc. for years. And every year FNC’s ratings get higher, while yours are in the crapper, and sinking lower than whale shit.
I mean c’mon. This guy thinks Joy Bahar is talented. Huh? At what? She’s nothing but yet another in a long line of ignorant liberal big mouths with absolutely nothing important to say. The only people who watch that blithering idiot are other idiot libs.
And he wants Obungler, Donald Trump, and Simon Cowell for his first interviews? Wow! That’s brilliant! I’ll bet that’s never been done before! Why didn’t someone else think of that? There’s some must see TV! NOT!
These libs never get it, and I doubt they ever will.
The reason your ratings suck aren’t due to who’s hosting what show. The problem is with your ultra-liberal bias you’re only going to attract an extremely small percentage of TV viewers. Nobody whose politics are middle of the road or conservative wants to listen to your cheerleaders rah-rahing everything Obungler does.
CNN’s Piers Morgan Vows Format And Other Changes To Beat Fox News Competition: Promises “I’m Going To Be There To Win” And “It’s Time To Kick Some Ratings Butt”
Piers Morgan tells us that he’s planning big changes to the Larry King Live interview slot he inherits in January. “The format, everything, will change. I’m not just going to be another man sitting in the CNN studio wearing red braces.” Morgan also promises he’ll beat his Fox News rivals (see below) — but not if he expects to do that with overexposed guests like Simon Cowell and Donald Trump or what he says is his top “get”, President Obama. The production team needs to be finalised before guests are signed, he says. Morgan tells us he hasn’t locked down his show’s executive producer yet, “though we are about to. What I would say is that there will be significant format changes, and the show will look and feel different and distinctive to Larry’s. I don’t want to copy him because he’s a legend. You don’t follow Sinatra at the Sands and try and warble My Way…”
The show will be mostly filmed in New York apart from 3 months in the summer when Morgan is in Los Angeles judging America’s Got Talent. He notes, “One key change will definitely be that I will pre-tape many of the interviews so I can market and promote them in advance of them airing, which I believe will increase ratings. I’ve done this very successfully with my Life Stories series in the UK, with subjects as diverse as Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Simon Cowell, and Richard Branson.”
Morgan also tells us his mission is to help boost CNN’s sagging primetime line-up against Fox News, MSNBC, and other rivals. Larry King Live scored its lowest monthly viewer total in nearly 20 years in May, averaging just 653,000 viewers each night. And, last week, CNN underwent a management shakeup. CNN overall is a ratings mess right now and getting its clock cleaned by Fox News. So the older cable news channel brought in the guy who talent-scouted Glenn Beck, Nancy Grace, and Joy Behar to fix it, HLN’s Ken Jautz. The TV world has changed since Larry King first began interviewing 25 years ago, says Morgan, noting that back then there wasn’t any Fox News or even MSNBC. Since then, there’s been an explosion in cable TV with rapid-fire hosts like Glenn Beck who don’t do long interviews with newsmakers. “Don’t get me wrong, they’re great at what they do,” says Morgan. “But I think there’s a gap in the market. For years, Larry King has shown the power of the extended interview, which is something I’ve specialized in with my British talk shows. When it comes to my rivals, however long it takes, I’m going to be there to win.” Morgan says, “The main message I want to communicate is that I intend this show to be a game-changer in terms of how interview shows are conducted on American TV. And I haven’t joined CNN to come 2nd, 3rd, or 4th.
