CNN cancels Morgan after ratings ‘bath’

– CNN’s prime-time talk show “Piers Morgan Live” is coming to an end, the news channel said Sunday.

Morgan, who succeeded Larry King in the 9 p.m. EST time slot three years ago, was drawing lackluster ratings. In contrast, King had a 25-year run on CNN.

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. spin-off, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” and as a contestant on “Celebrity Apprentice.”

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.

CNN did not comment on Morgan’s future with the channel.
