CNN's 'Piers Morgan Live' to End

CNN is removing “Piers Morgan Live” from its channel after only three years.

“CNN confirms that ‘Piers Morgan Live’ is ending,” a statement from the network read. “The date of the final program is still to be determined.”

Morgan replaced Larry King's show, who in contrast remained on air for 25 years. Morgan's 9 p.m. program struggled to attract viewers and was regularly beaten out by competitors like Fox News.

In an interview with The New York Times, Morgan said his audience may have grown tired of his focus on gun control, considering it was a main topic on the show.

"I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns,” he said. "There is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it."

CNN has yet to comment on Morgan’s future role with the channel.
