Larry King To Appear On ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’

Larry King and Piers Morgan on CNN

Larry King is heading back to CNN but this time it’s to sit on the opposite side of the desk as a guest on Piers Morgan Tonight the show that replaced King when he left the network after 25 years on the air.

It will be interesting to see how the two men react after Larry King told the BBC last week that CNN overhyped Morgan’s interviewing style:

“One of the problems they did was to oversell it — they said he was going to be dangerous, he was going to be water-cooler talk, it was ‘wait till you see me, I’m different, Well, he’s good — but he’s not that dangerous…. He’s good, but not that dangerous. I think they might have been better off starting quietly and that’s not Piers’ fault, or maybe it is, I’m not inside anymore.”

Larry went on to say that Piers interrupts his guests too much

“He’s certainly not bad. He’s certainly an acceptable host. He asks good questions, maybe he interrupts a little too much at times.”

No broadcast date has been given for the Larry King appearance.

  1. CNN allows Spritzer to rudely preempt other interviewers AND interviewees and, with PIERS MORGAN, they have put an insipid and unpleasant sychphant in Larry King’s role. He cannot improve, it can only get worse, and the train-wreck that is “CNN commentary” is alienating once loyal viewers.

    First POSITIVE corrective step? Set the poor, insecure Brit free. He is not traditional CNN caliber. He is an embarrassment.
