“Piers Morgan Live” Soon to be Piers Morgan Canceled … CNN Gives Low Ratings Show the Axe … Get Ready for his Kicking & Screaming

CNN is giving ‘Piers Morgan Live’ given the boot … Piers Morgan, Not-So Live.

As reported at The Politico, CNN is canceling Piers Morgan’s low rated 9pm show. The 3 year experience to replace Larry King Live has crashed and burned badly with a prime time show that got consistently low ratings. CNN stated that the show could end as early as next month. It probably could not happen soon enough as “Piers Morgan Live” is simply unwatchable. So who will be next up for CNN to take on Megyn Kelly on Fox News and Rachel Maddow at MSNBC at 9PM? Some seem to think Bill Weir. All we know for now is that Piers Morgan is out … good riddance to bad rubbish!

The below video is exhibit 1 of the reason why Piers Morgan’s show has been canceled. Guests Dana Loesch and Scottie Hughes own Morgan in the gun debate so much so at the very end the CNN host winds up in a snit … “It makes me sick”. Actually Piers, your show made many more sick and the reason why no one watched it0 One last thing … Bu-bye!!!

CNN President Jeff Zucker has decided to bring an end to Piers Morgan’s low-rated primetime show, network sources told POLITICO on Sunday. “Piers Morgan Live” could end as early as next month, though Morgan may stay with the network in another role.

Morgan, a former British tabloid editor, replaced Larry King in the 9 p.m. hour three years ago, prior to Zucker’s tenure as president. His show earned consistently low ratings, registering as few as 50,000 viewers in the 25-to-54 year-old demographic earlier this week.

“CNN confirms that Piers Morgan Live is ending,” Allison Gollust, head of CNN communications, told POLITICO on Sunday after an earlier version of this post was published. “The date of the final program is still to be determined.”

Earlier on Sunday, Morgan told The New York Times that the show had “run its course” and that he and Zucker “have been talking for some time about different ways of using me.” Sources who spoke to POLITICO said the decision to end the show was Zucker’s.

Live + Same Day Cable News Daily Ratings for Thursday,  February 20, 2014:

Check out the unbelievable, consistent low ratings of Piers Morgan. It is hard to believe they stuck with him this long. The funny part is I have watched more shows of American Greed on CNBC than Piers.

CNN_Piers Morgan ratings

As The Other McCain opines, this is the “first smart move that network has made in years.” I could not agree more. The money line comes from The Guardian that emphasize the following comments from the New York Times article that Morgan was a square peg in a round hole. Really, after all this time CNN finally figured out that a liberal Brit going against the United States Constitution and the First Amendment was a bad thing? God figure.

“It’s been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings,” Morgan told the New York Times, which first broke news of the CNN decision on Sunday.

“Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it.”

LOL, remember when Piers Morgan told CBS News during his book tour that, “I will be taken out of CNN kicking and screaming. I absolutely love it. It’s a fantastic network. It’s a great news place to be.”

OBAMACARE: CNN Poll Shows Barack Obama Is Losing His Own Base, Especially Woman & Americans Hardly Think the Affordable Care Act is Affordable

Barack Obama and Democrats are in dire straights …

According to the recent CNN poll, the support for Obamacare has dropped to all time lows as only 35% now support the law and 62% oppose Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation. Obamacare has never had support with the American people as Democrats rammed it down the throats of Americans in a partisan vote, but now it is reaching epic lows as even Obama’s own base is turning against the ACA.

CNN’s national correspondent John King provides some analysis on the new CNN poll and none of it good for Barack Obama or Democrats. King says, “you see the ditch that the administration has dug for itself”. Ditch? A 27% negative gap is not a ditch, it is a canyon and soon will be a sink hole swallowing up all the Democrat politicians who voted for it.  King goes on to say, “that this was a law that divided us anyways, but then you have the rollout drive a lot of the president’s supporters away.” Actually, it is not just the technical failures of the web site roll out that has forced his own base to question Obamacare, it is the fact that they found out that Barack Obama lied regarding Obamacare in that you could keep your healthcare coverage and doctor if you liked them and the claim that costs would be reduced.

John King discusses the continuing trouble for the president is that he is losing his own base. King said, “he is losing part of his own base. Sixty percent of woman now oppose Obamacare, that is up 6 points in just one month.” Imagine if a Republican president passed such a law where woman polled against it like this, Democrats and the liberal MSM would be touting it as a “War on Women”.

And it gets even worse and pretty much comical for Obama and Obamacare and no one is laughing. When CNN asked, “the amount that you pay under the new health care law will … “  63% said they think their medical bills will increase, while only 7% said they will decrease. This prompted the CNN host to say, “when the laws name is the Affordable Care Act, you got to say that is a problem.”

EXIT QUESTION: Imagine if the liberal MSM did their job and was this critical and questioned Barack Obama and Obamacare when much of what ultimately happened was being predicted by Conservatives?

FOX NEWS … And Still the Undisputed Ratings Champ of 2013 – More Viewers Than Combined Averages of CNN, MSNBC and HLN

From Variety, FOX News channel is far and away the #1 cable news network in 2013. Just how much have they distanced themselves from the competition? Fox News channeled had more views in prime-time than CNN, MSNBC and HLN combined.

  1. Fox News Channel: 1.774 million
  2. MSNBC with 645,000
  3. CNN with 578,000
  4. HLN with 403,000

Fox News Channel maintained its grip on the cable-news network ratings prize in 2013, drawing more viewers than the combined averages of CNN, MSNBC and HLN.

It was a down year in terms of overall audience, as every newsie but HLN showed primetime declines from their Presidential Election-driven tallies of 2012.

According to Nielsen data through Dec. 8, Fox News Channel averaged 1.774 million viewers in primetime (down 13% from 2012) and 297,000 adults 25-54 (down 30%). It was followed by MSNBC with 645,000 viewers and 203,000 adults 25-54 (down 29% in both); CNN with 578,000 (down 15%) and 187,000 adults 25-54 (down 16%); and HLN with 403,000 total viewer (up 21%) and 142,000 in the demo (up 27%).

Among all basic cable networks in 2013, FNC ranked sixth in primetime while MSNBC was 29th and CNN was 31st. In total day, Fox ran fourth while CNN was 28th and MSNBC ran 30th; in 2012, CNN finished behind MSNBC. CNN and HLN showed some year-over-year gains on a total-day basis, while FNC and MSNBC were down.

HA, Weasel Zippers adds, Media Matters unavailable for comment. But the LEFTIES live an an alternate universe and believe that they can still keep their healthcare insurance if they like it or any other Kool-Aid that Obama pours.

Former Boxing Heavyweight Champ Mike Tyson Condemns ‘Knockout’ Attacks … “I Don’t Know Why They Do It … Maybe They’re Just Evil”

Just how bad is the “Knock Out” game, even former heavyweight boxing champ and former Brooklyn thug condemns it …

In an interview on CNN with Piers Morgan, Mike Tyson weighed in on the “knockout game” attacks that have happened in many cities across the US.  In his youth, Mike Tyson was hardly considered a good kid growing up in the Bed-Stuy and the Brownsville sections of Brooklyn.

But when asked, even Iron Mike, the “Baddest man on the planet” did not know why these punks did it. Tyson said, “Maybe they’re just evil. They’re are some evil people out there.”

CNN Transcript:

Mike Tyson: “It doesn’t make any sense. It’s a game to some people. I don’t think it’s cool. I saw them hit a woman, from behind… If I was on a robbing spree, I’d done something like that. But this is just for fun. These guys are just, there’s no purpose of doing that. I saw someone hit a woman I’ve never hit a girl in the face. I just can’t imagine. The only thing I can imagine is that being my daughter or my wife … Maybe they’re just evil. They’re some evil people.”

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Tells CNN … Democrats “Will Be Able to Run on Obamacare” in 2014

HEY DEBBIE, BRING IT …

Baghdad Bob DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz tells Candy Crowley of CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ that Democrats will be able to run on Obamacare as an advantage. Even a perplexed Crowley was a bit taken back by the response when she asked the Florida US Representative whether Obamacare would weigh heavily upon Democrats in the 2014 elections.

I guess Debbie Wasserman Schultz thinks that the American people will just forget that they were lied to by Democrats. I guess the millions of people who will have lost the insurance that they wanted to keep are just going to forgive and forget. Hmm, I guess the Democrats up for reelection in 2014 that went to the White House in a panic over the disastrous “train wreck” that is Obamacare will not be an issue, eh? Also, five vulnerable Democrat Senators are pushing plans to delay Obamacare. Why would they be doing that unless they wanted to avoid it like the plague? I say have Democrats run on Obamacare, I dare you.

 I guess Debbie thinks Barack Obama has coattails … oops, he does but they are going in the wrong direction.

The Obama WH Deceit Continues … Obama & His Minions Knew Users Would Not Like Obamacare’s High Costs and Limited Options

They knew folks and they just didn’t care …

America, The fact that you can’t log on the Obamacare website Helathcare.gov may be the least of your problems.

As reported by Jake Tapper at CNN, the Obama Administration was concerned that once users were able to get on the website and view the costs and options available to them at the Obamacare website, they would be disappointed with high prices and limited choice. The source is directly from notes from the Obama administration’s self described war room.

Officials expressed concern that the next shoe to drop in the evolving story about the Affordable Care Act would be disappointment from consumers once they are able to get on the troubled HealthCare.gov website – disappointment because of sticker shock and limited choice, according to a new document obtained by CNN.

“Mike described a general concern of PM (plan management team): getting to the point where the website is functioning properly and individuals begin to select plans; the media attention will follow individuals to plan selection and their ultimate choices; and, in some cases, there will be fewer options than would be desired to promote consumer choice and an ideal shopping experience. Additionally, in some cases there will be relatively high cost plans,” say the notes from the Obama administration’s Obamacare ‘War Room’ from one week ago.

Can we just call Obamacare for what it truly is, a fraud on the American people.
