Piers Trounced By the Amish

At last some good news for Piers Morgan: six times as many Americans watch his show as signed the petition to have him deported. But the cheers for Piers end there. The latest cable news race figures for Wednesday have the CNN host at the bottom of pecking order, with less than a fifth as many viewers tuning in to his show compared to Fox’s Bill O’Reilly. The humiliation was completed by 3.2 million Americans watching Amish Mafia, Pennsylvania’s answer to Made in Chelsea, compared to just 600,000 viewing Piers Morgan Tonight. At least Obama’s a fan

    Morgan comes across as a smarmy arrogant annoying Huhne on both sides of the pond.

      More people would rather watch a sleazy operator who promotes keg parties and smoker fights in rural Pennsylvania amongst the Plain Folk, than Piers Morgan. Was ist los? They’re not even showing the REAL stuff I do, just “recreations,” for chrissakes! Ach du lieber! Is Piers THAT unwatchable, that they tune in to see ME?

        Life imitating art, and is still more watchable than Piers Moron says:

        To be fair, Dog the Bounty Hunter is better and more relevant than Moron’s show.

    Obama has to be a fan. Its the democrats broadcasting arm.

    For him not to watch would be like Owen Jones saying he thinks BBC News is a bit partisan and he watches Channel 5 instead.

    Someone should go and buy it all back so we can do so.

    Point of information says:

    Politico were being kind. Check the relevant 18-51 demographic and you will find Moron is lucky to get 300k / night. The others on the list do not show similar reduction.

    What this means is that the Moron show ratings are heavily supported by TV’s being left on in nursing homes and kindergartens.

    Piers Morgan should interview Lance Armstrong. The we could see a liar and a cheat being interviewed by a liar and a cheat.

    Looks like Billy Connolly’s “Morgan fails upwards” is a tad more accurate than Morgans “I am a very talented person”

    How does the lying drip retain a job? Can CNN not see through him or was it his rich wife paid to get him a job.
