CNN’s prime-time talk show “Piers Morgan Live” is coming to an end, the news channel said Sunday.
The airdate for Morgan’s last show has yet to be determined, CNN said in a statement.
Morgan is a former U.K. tabloid editor who reinvented himself as a TV personality with stints as a judge on “Britain’s Got Talent” and its U.S. spinoff, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” and as a contestant on “Celebrity Apprentice.”
He hosted BBC’s “You Can’t Fire Me, I’m Famous,” and did interview shows and documentaries for ITV.
Morgan told The New York Times that his show lately has “taken a bath in the ratings” but that he and CNN President Jeff Zucker were discussing a new role for him at the channel. CNN’s audience has tired of hearing a Brit weigh in American cultural issues, Morgan said in a story posted online Sunday
