CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight ratings for the first quarter of 2012* were down 40% among the news ad target adults 25-54 demo and down 36% among all viewers compared to the same period in 2011.
Before his start last year, Piers famously noted he'd like to do a little ratings "butt kicking" of Fox News and MSNBC . Apparently, the butt kicking has been somewhat postponed. Perhaps indefinitely.
