The British people rejoiced when noted criminologist and renowned firearms expert Piers Morgan left their shores for the new world. The good news: we here in the United States may be doing the same thing shortly. Following months of plummeting ratings and negative press, CNN may be about to kill Piers’s prime time talk show in favor of, well, just about anything else in the world, really. The show hasn’t been doing CNN any favors in terms of drawing viewers and the powers that be seem to be coming over to Jeremy Clarkson’s way of thinking . . .
Sources tell FTVLive that CNN Boss Jeff Zucker is “actively looking for a replacement for Piers Morgan.”
Morgan signed a one year extension to his contract and as time winds down, Zucker is looking for someone to takeover his time slot.
Word is that CNN could offer Morgan another role at the network, most likely something outside of prime time and likely in the late night hours.
Morgan, his agent and CNN have been working on his new role or his exit strategy from the network.
We probably haven’t seen the last of Morgan. But here’s hoping that if he does indeed lose this gig, too, he puts his money where his mouth is and jumps ship to another country. Again.
