According to the New York Times, Piers Morgan Live is coming to an end. There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. CNN’s president, Jeffrey Zucker, has other problems, but none bigger than Morgan and his plum 9 p.m. time slot. Morgan said last week that he and Zucker had been talking about the show’s failure to connect and had decided to pull the plug, probably in March.
