Taking over CNN's 9pm hour from Larry King who's been stuck in third, and sometimes fourth place among cable news networks for quite some time would seem to be a big hole to climb out of, but Piers Morgan is undeterred.
"I didn't join the network to come in second or third or fourth," Morgan said during a conference call with reporters on Wednesday (Sept. 8). "I want to be first."
You've got to admire his spirit, but it will be quite a climb.
His new show begins in January.
