    Here's a crazy thought, why don't they fill that time slot with news? The only person I like on CNN is Fareed Zakaria. At least he tells you what is happening in the rest of the world, and he has actual experts on topics who posses the ability to debate topics without screaming at each other.

    I miss the NewsWorld International channel where they would show news broadcasts from around the world. Other countries are able to run through like 10-20 stories in their newscasts, while US Cable media seems to just focus on at most 3 that they report on ad nauseum.

    Thank God. I would be happy to never have to hear anything about him again. And I really hope they don't replace Piers with Jay Leno.

    I think they should give Erin Burnett another show. I'd also be interested in an Anderson Cooper interview type show.

    Haven't watched CNN in years, and people like Morgan are the reason. Send him back home.

    MSNBC is the toilet bowl of television.

    I thought he was actually entertaining, but haven't watched it in a long time.. (way too many other things to watch). I would've listened to the podcast, if it'd been updated in the last year and a few months!

    I didn't think Morgan was that horrible, but 2 things kept me from watching him:

    1) The guide data never EVER listed who the guest was going to be.
    2) Whenever I did take a chance and switched to the show, it was ALWAYS during a commercial so I just moved on.

    Why don't they just have Jack Hanna host it. He seems to be the guest on that show half the time anyways.

    piers is still under contract with cnn until october, so it will be interesting to see what role he will fill between the show's end and then.

    I think he would be good on Crossfire, then Piers and the nitwit Newt could go at each other. :D

    That would be good. Then Newt could verbally tear him a new one. Nightly.

    Same is true with "Charlie Rose", but somehow I started recording it again, maybe because I accidentally ran into an ep over Xmas break or something. But I essentially listen to it as a podcast with VLC at 2x.. Or at least some segments, admittedly more pop culture ones..

    I wish he listed guests though.

    Yeah, Jezza (Jeremy Clarkson, the above columnist and also host of "Top Gear") also made a few jokes at Morgan's expense during the most recent episode of Top Gear.

    I didn't recognize Jeremy from the photo until I saw your post. My like for Jeremy just quadrupled.
