Piers Morgan Hits New Low in Key Demographic (Excellent)
Townhall.com ^ | March 2, 2013 | Heather Ginsberg

Poor Piers Morgan, not only do people want him deported, but now they have decided to just stop tuning into his show. Piers Morgan has been on the forefront of the second amendment debate. He yelled personal attacks at Ben Shapiro when he couldn’t defend himself any longer from the intellectual debate he was facing. But it seems like karma has come to get him.

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.

Piers Morgan Tonight also had the lowest demo in its time slot and was even beat by HLN’s Dr. Drew (with 208,000).

With these ratings we can only hope to see a cancellation. The “news” he provides is nothing but liberal drivel. CNN has been rethinking a lot of their programming and perhaps it is about time to think about Mr. Morgan’s show.

I say leave him on in prime time. That then is a drag on CNN and they fully deserve it.

Send Piers to New Zealand next (he’s already had to leave GB).

I'm not surprised his show had a yearly low since I have no idea who Gus Searcy and Jodi Arias are.

Shapiro was TOO NICE to him, showed manners, used logic:

Nice, but a misplaced strategy to use with someone who hacks into the voicemail of dead kids...

YELLING AND RUDENESS REQUIRED

“Red Eye” on FNC probably pulls better ratings and that is on at 3AM EST

It’s also the best political satire show on TV

I quit watching television so long ago that I really don’t know who this guy is, other than what I read about him here.

Life is good without the TV going all the time!

The key demographic Morgan needs to lose in is "human beings".

I never watch him. I have about 150 channels on my satellite connection and can always find something more interesting, even if it is one of the auction channels or the weather channel.

87,000 viewers in the 25 to 54 age group ?

A show watching the grass grow can probably do better...

I wonder at what benchmark if there is one where an advertiser doesn’t have to pay for airtime...since this is a nationwide cable program....

It would funny as hell if that Limey douchbag generated zero ad revenue...

Almost half of those must be folks who forgot to turn the TV off when they left the house.
The other half must be the cat or dog got hold of the remote when nobody was in the room............Just speculating.

Is it true that Britain threw him out and dumped him on us? If so. I guess it was a payback for making them deal with Obama for the last four years.

Nah, I know some Kiwis and from my experience, they
don’t deserve to be morganed.

Send him to Cuba or Venezuela. He’d be a real hit with the people there, guaranteed.

On Monday, on CNN, Piers interviewed who-cares-who on his own show. At the same time, on BBC America, “Top Gear” presenters James May and Jeremy Clarkson insulted him.
How many more people saw the git get insulted versus the real git on his own show?

Best way to get Morgan off the air is to stop watching him and stop patronizing his sponsors. Start with the sponsors first and that will at least get him “un-employed” but still around. Then we have to work on a permanent removal from this country. We don’t need any more like him here, we hae enough “home grown” to take his place.

I was watching some older episodes of Top Gear I had around, and Clarkson made a comment along the lines of “and with this engine, it will put out less CO2, if you believe in that malarky . . .”

Those guys are very politically incorrect. I love’em.

Considering that very few except the extreme left were listening to him before he stuck his foot in his mouth about guns, this is even more significant.

Loons like Piers tend to fly below the radar for all but the extreme left, and now that's over. Normal people are reacting to his extreme rhetoric, and most importantly, they are ridiculing him for his ignorance.

Liberals don't know how to handle ridicule. It's their Achilles Heel.

Let's exploit that.

Aww, that’s a shame, now he’s getting daily death threats(or so he claims). Must be hard to be such a schlub.
