    Like geeesh...how dare a foreigner come on TV and question the American way of doing things.......he should have researched Rosie O's fall from fame to see that you don't question anything gun related and never openly support gun control on TV.

    Morgan's problem is that he never recognized that HE was a moron, and attracted other morons.

    I have watched several interviews that he had done, and he came across as smug little douchebag.

    He has reaped what he had sown.

    He certainly isn't leaving the lucrative primetime spot he has at CNN of his own volition though. They probably are allowing him to save face with the illusion that it is his idea, but I don't believe that for one minute. The fact is his ratings are in subterranean territory and he simply has neither the ability or personality to do anything about that. But he was honest in saying the experience has been painful and they took a bath in the ratings.

    Nielson ratings for that time slot February 20:

    Fox - The Kelly File - 1874
    MSNBC - Rachel Maddow - 925
    CNN - Piers Morgan - 364
    HLN - Dr Drew on Call - 296
    CNBC - American Greed - 172

    And the scuttlebutt is that Larry King wants the show back.

    I guess that Larry's 3am cable infomercials might not be as fulfilling and lucrative as he had hoped......

    Re: America is fed up of me: Morgan to quit CNN job

    For perspective, in 2010 Huffington Post listed the top cable news programs/personalities as:

    1. Fox - O'Reilly 2.94
    2. Fox - Hannity 2.635
    3. Fox - Beck 2.057
    4. Fox - Baier 1.929
    5. Fox - Gretchen 1.856
    6. Fox - Shep - 1.616
    7. Fox - O'Reilly - late night repeat - 1.418
    8. Fox - Cavuto - 1.301
    9. Fox - America's Newsroom - 1.171
    10. MSNBC - Olbermann - 1.059
    11. Fox - Studio B - 1.051
    12. Fox - Fox & Friends - 999,000
    13. MSNBC - Maddow - 989,000
    14. Fox - Happening - 930,000
    15. HLN - Nancy Grace - 719,000
    16. CNN - Anderson Cooper - 687,000
    17. CNN - Larry King - 674,000
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/0...=1_The_OReilly

    And while all cable news ratings have slipped a bit since 2010, Piers is pulling 384,000 or about half of what Larry King was pulling. I don't think Larry has a prayer to get his spot back, but it does look like CNN would start looking for a new game plan.

    Naw, I think he just misses the glamour and recognition of a prime time TV show. I'm pretty sure he has plenty of money to live out his days quite pleasantly, but he must be bored out of the limelight.

    I actually don't like the guy. But let's not pretend hacks like Hannity and Limbaugh are any better.

    I would say someone that only pulled in 50,000 from the age groups of 25-50 has serious problems reaching just about anyone, while Hannity and Limbaugh are clearly at least relating to someones views out there considering their ratings.

    The problem with Piers Morgan is that just about everyone hates the guy and can't stand to hear him speak. It isn't really that he is anti-gun, but that he is a pompous ass. The same problem I might add that Obama has.
