    Default Piers Morgan Live cancelled

    'Piers Morgan Live' staffers actually happy CNN canceled show: sources

    One insider says the bombastic Brit was 'always such an a------- to people working for him' — especially the makeup girls. Confidenti@l hears Morgan's bad attitude and low ratings led to the show's demise.


    Piers Morgan 'didn't show any respect' to some of the people he worked with, one insider says.

    His own co-workers are glad he’s getting the boot. Staffers at “Piers Morgan Live” are actually relieved that CNN has canceled the show, sources tell Confidenti@l.
    “He was always such an a------ to people working for him,” one insider says of the bombastic Brit. Morgan’s last show is likely to be this week, but no specific date has been set. We hear it was low ratings and a bad attitude that killed it, and the decision was made by network boss Jeff Zucker. “The makeup girls suffered the worst — he was rude and belligerent,” says our source. “The general feeling is Morgan didn’t show any respect to anyone working under him — the people who were trying to make him look good.”

    Last Thursday, “Piers Morgan” was seen by just 364,000 total viewers, according to Nielsen. That was easily beaten by Fox News’ “The Kelly File” (1.9 million) and MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show” (925,000). Morgan was questioned in November in London by cops investigating phone hacking, but a CNN spokeswoman said that interview was not a factor in his show being canned.


    Our insider says the makeup girls got the worst of Piers Morgan's bad attitude.

    Morgan was the editor of the U.K’s Mirror newspaper from 1995 until he was fired in 2004 over the publication of pictures that were claimed to show Iraqi prisoners being abused by British soldiers; it turned out the photos were fakes.

    He was a crap newspaper editor (Piers Moron) and he's a crap TV host. Useless interview technique.

    Piers Morgan: Larry King is a ‘graceless, petty little man’





    Clearly, former CNN prime-time stars Larry King andPiers Morgan aren’t big fans of each other.


    After King derided Morgan’s interview skills and called him pompous, Morgan responded on Twitter on Friday that King was a “graceless, petty little man.” Morgan’s 9 p.m. CNN show was canceled this year. He had replaced King in that time slot in 2011.


    King, in an interview with WGRF in Buffalo, says he had trouble watching his successor because the interviews were all about him.


    Morgan, in turn, criticized King’s ratings, posting a clip where King famously misidentified addressed Ringo Starr as “George,” and writing, “Get over it, you daft old goat.”

    I always showed @kingsthings the utmost respect but he responded by incessantly bitching about me. Graceless, petty little man. #CNN

    Anyway, I suspect only me and Larry King give a monkey's cuss which we think of each other - so now that's off my chest, I'll move on.
