Long Live the King! Larry Out at Live, Brit Talker Morgan In
Suspenders and softballs are officially out at CNN weeknights from 9 to 10 p.m. eastern. I just heard that Piers Morgan of Britain’s Got Talent will be replacing Larry King as CNN’s major talk show host.
Sky news has this on the story. Recently the King has been going through some retrospective nights and his ratings have been slipping badly. Probably just a matter of time. Although Larry wasn’t known for going hard to the hole with guests, his show offered a relatively safe zone for many a political or celebrity n’er do-well to begin the age-old American ritual of “coming back.”
