Piers Morgan Runs Out of Dead Kids, Experiences Ratings Fall

Around the world, different people are praying for different things. Some people are praying for their families and other people are praying for their health. Some pray for the future of their country and others pray for something that they really need.
Piers Morgan is praying for dead kids.
The disgraced tabloid editor was brought in to handle celebrity interviews after everyone at CNN assumed that Larry King had died. King had not actually died and no one wanted to watch a doughy British man interview minor celebs on CNN.
Then Piers Morgan discovered dead kids. For weeks he yelled about assault rifles and did everything but go out to the Newtown cemetery with a shovel. And then the news rolled on and no one is watching Piers Morgan.
How bad is the situation?
Larry King got more younger viewers than Piers Morgan did.
These were Larry King’s ratings from his final show.
The audience skewed toward older demographics: only 530,000 of the 2.24 million viewers were between the ages of 25 and 54, the demographic favored by cable news advertisers.
These are Piers Morgan’s ratings.
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.
You can see why Piers Morgan needs dead kids. He has no luck with living ones.
Maybe it’s time for CNN to bring Larry King back?
