The February 28th episode of Piers Morgan Tonight, which featured an exclusive interview with Gus Searcy, the mentor of Jodi Arias suffered a yearly low in the key 25-54 demographic with only 87,000 viewers. The show is down 27% in total viewers and 38% in the demo from its debut in Jan. 17th, 2011.

Piers Morgan Tonight also had the lowest demo in its time slot and was even beat by HLN’s Dr. Drew (with 208,000).

    Idiot and blowhard, loves to compare firearms statistics of Britain and the USA but neglects to mention population disparity or compare per 100,000 statistics as well as ignoring the other crimes of murder and mayhem committed with and without firearms in GB. Typical Progressive shill, mind numbingly dull, shrill and meaningless.

  • mtclem

    Everyone already knows he hates guns, so why do we need to watch? He just yells over people who disagree and when they start to answer he changes the question. Typical British Turd!

    Go Home Douchebag!

    P. Morgan over powers every guest that does not agree with him and then calls them idiots !
    With this type of individual CNN is going down the tube. It is embarrassing to watch his so called interviews especially the rant he goesis on every evening on his version of gun control.

  • anony

    Typical British arrogance!

  • NonFan

    Now, to be fair…he probably is a jerk off camera too, but I have to be honest; I’ve never watched his show. No desire to watch either. I saw him once as a judge on some can’t-remember-the-name talent show. His arrogance was a huge turn-off. I wonder, why alienate so many people?

    He’s a gasbag with an English accent. I’ve been hoping his contract is about up & his show is replaced with someone who isn’t an elitist.

    Goodbye Mr. Irrelevant

  • MWJones

    Britain is as disgusted as America is by this loathesome self promoter, liar and journalistic charlatan…. shame on CNN…did you not do due diligence on this bottom fisher who will do & say anything to create a headline…..

  • robster

    The English lost the colonies over gun control (and taxes). It’s interesting they are still singing the same tune to US. It proves the old saying “the English remember everything but learn nothing”.

    To everyone saying Piers Morgan should go home, he can’t. In the United Kingdom there are severe penalties for journalists who get caught in a lie. Morgan has been caught lying in the UK many time, I don’t think he can practice “journalism” over there now. So in order to avoid flipping hamburgers or mopping floors, he’s got to stay in America where the govt gives bonuses to journalists to lie in their favor.

    Go home , Dickhead , you aren’t cutting it on USA TV.

  • Gerry

    He was editor of a sleazy tabloid in Britain and has denied knowing that journalists were hacking into celebrities’ phone messages. I’ve lived in GB, and while a good many of them are decent and kind, you better not be out after dark in almost any city and particularly the mid-sized one I was in–by that I mean roving gangs of drunk, aggressive men and women, and you have no protection against them. Cops: useless and too late. It’s mostly petty vandalism, shouting, screaming, a lot of hitting people who happen to be passing by…and getting punched or approached by shirtless testosterone-filled troublemakers is bad enough, but if you defend yourself you’ll be arrested. SO a tabloid journalist from a violent country with an accent and an attitude telling American they’re stupid: rich. And they don’t don’t want him back.

  • Haha pier is in tears

    Hey, if CNN wants the viewership in this timeslot to explode, they should put Alex Jones in his chair! Traitorous Limey.

  • Anon

    Too bad they didn’t capture the fight when Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson punched him in the face for being a douchebag. A sure ratings boost.

  • daveo

    I wish that CNN could find a dozen more just like Mr. Morgan. That would put them off the air forever. Go Fox News.

  • kim

    Maybe Pierce could get a job as a horses ass whisperer.

    why employ people like piers morgon and martin bashir when people in this country are out of work


    I really hope the communist news network keeps this flaming (__*__) and they don’t deport him.
