READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
In the British parliament, legislators engage in "Question Time" – a chance to get any and all questions answered.
In our "Your Question Time" web series, we'll ask Piers Morgan the questions you want answered. Today: responding to Madonna, and where he'd be without Simon Cowell.
Responding to @SLBFan1982, Piers weighs in on the simmering back-and-forth between the duo. He describes his history with Madonna's publicist, who once told him "'listen to me, read my lips, Madonna is not pregnant,' and the next day she announced her pregnancy to a rival newspaper." Piers says Madonna may have a "lifetime ban" from his show, but she "does know me."
@WEJPunter asked where he'd be without Simon Cowell. "Simon gave me my big break in America, there's no question about that, but as he always says, he gave me the break, but if I had been useless, I'd be sent straight back home," said Piers.
@Bearchenwilma asked how long he has been a "Gooner," and Piers talks about his favorite American sports teams.
We'll have more of Your Question Time later this week!

King no doubt green lit Morgan as had knows he is a big load, and therefore will not outshine the uninteresting and contentless job Larry had done for the last 25 years or so.
hmmmmmmmm I banned Morgan the first time I heard he was taking Larry King's spot!
I'm not at all impressed with Piers Morgan and doubt he can do the job to maintain the ratings and audience that Larry King did. Time will tell.
If this self absorbed twit thinks he will get good ratings by being confrontational it may work in the short term...but eventually no one will want to be on his show
What a Pompous Twit this dufus is. He will see just how much everyone ignores him when he gets buried by Fox News (and the local cable access channel) in the ratings.
Not sure why we needed a Brit to host a CNN show, surely there is talent in the USA and we don't need to import freakin' TV talking heads now. Used to watch Larry King but can't stand this guy.
CNN hired this guy to replace King? Is this a joke?
He was a judge on a talent show and he is not even American!
Two people I'd never watch
Piers Morgan is nothing but a hater. He's just jealous that Madonna will be a billionaire by 2012 and how much will he make? He is NO Larry King, that's for sure. I think Madonna's career will survive without an appearance on his show. He's also nasty to the contestants on America's Got Talent. He should be banned from television.
Piers is a moron to insult the most populat femal artist of the 21st century just b/c he did not get a "scoop" back in his newpaper days. Madonna should not appear on his ill fated show b/c she can do interviews with bigger newsmen. CNN should fire Piers once his ratings show his true colors. CNN should also cancel the Elliott Spitzer show too.
all you had to do was tell Madonna she was banned to get her to shut up? Wish somebody would've thought of that in the 80s
Is it possible you will be less smug when you greet your American audience? They can Love You and Hate You in a New York minute.
Never thought I'd miss Larry...
What perspective will you bring to an American audience? Will it be the trashy, ultra-personal style of the English tabloids? Your lifetime banning of Madonna for allegedly dissing you is so petty. I guess you can tell I am not happy with CNN's choice. You will bring your British bias to every show I fear.
Piers, you're just another hack, tyring to turn news into a silly metaphorical boxing match. You idiot we want to see informative news, not Jerry Springer News.
Who is Piers Morgan? Is his show on BBC America?
Jeez. Just another reason to stop watching CNN.
Banned Madonna because her publicist wouldn't reveal a personal detail? Sounds like a big baby.
Is this just stupid, or does it mean something?
Madonna is so far above Piers Morgan it is ridiculous to even report this story. Morgan is a pathetic, obnoxious man.
Sounds like he starting off with a chip on his shoulder. Oh well, I wasn't going to watch his show anyway. I guess this seals his fate with me. He might want to also do a reality check that Madonna probably would not have appeared on his show to begin with. How really low class he has become.
Who this this guy? And who cares.
I love the Brits but I'm sick to death of opinionators. How about actual journalists? I don't care what some guy thinks!
A lame attempt to leverage Madonna's name. If this is any indication of the intelligence of Piers Morgan's show, I don't imagine I'll be tuning in.
He banned Madonna from being on his show...I shall therefore ban him from being seen on my TV!
Piers does nothing for me. Can't believe he is replacing Larry King. BIG MISTAKE.
Banned from a show she hasen't heard of ...
I understand the entire shades of gray meaning to the world, but it really does not work when trying to read web pages. Please change the page for better constrast to make the article easier to read if you want people to actually come back.
I honestly cannot imagine anyone wanting to watch this. I was seriously surprised to hear that Morgan was being given his own show. He, more than any other judge, made me stop watching American Idol.
Please tell the camera man to stand still and stop the fast simultaneous zooming and panning. Come on does he think the show is so bad he needs to make it more interesting with B movie effects?
This is why no one cares CNN. This isn't news. As much as I hate Fox and their political biases, at least they keep the entertainment tonight fluff to a minimum.
Why does this guy even have a show? Banning Madonna? Whats next? Oprah? Obama? Sure. Ban people you couldn't even book if you tried.
WAY to many Brits in AMERICA , go back to england
Who the heck is Piers Mogan?
If you had a chance to do another "talent" show would you?
I don't really have an opinion about Madonna either way but to ban her for life from appearing on your show? It seems he might be a bit bitter he didn't get the scoop. Let it go Piers.
A general thumbs down for Piers. You have replaced a respected seasoned professional interviewer with a tabloid talent show host. What were you thinking?
Come on... do you really think this is News? Madonna is not concerned that Piers has some "goofy ban" on her!!!! Thats laughable...
Why is this loser the new chosen one? He doesn't do anything except have an annoyingly pompous british accent. Hell just get someone from Eastenders if no one cares about talent. At least they are interesting.
This sounds like another show that I'm going to run right out and MISS.
I give Piers show 3 months before being yanked. I'm not claiming to be an expert on t.v. ratings but come on, anyone who can't see this show tanking has got to be completely oblivious. Yah, I'm speaking to you CNN execs. Who green lit this???
This guy will not last a year on television. What the hell was CNN thinking making him Larry King's replacement. I don't care if he lands Almighty God as a guest, I will never ever watch his show. My dislike for this idiot stemmed from when he hosted AMA. and during the auditions he tried to belittle Michael Grimm during his audition. He literally threatened to have him booted from the show because Mr Grimm went over the allowed time by a few seconds. Well even a peanut brain could have seen that Grimm was going to be a star from that audition and that it wasn't intentional that he had gone over. This idiot does not know how to talk and relate to people. Heed my words he will be done soon due to poor ratings.
CNN becomes so boring now, Only AC360 is a great show to watch.
This guy even doesn't know if there is any people going to watch his "show", he's already talked about banning someone
LOL!! LOVE HIM ALREADY!! Can't wait to watch his show!!!!!
Is this page meant to be read? The powder blue with white script is soooooooo bad. Not a good introduction- get a new graphic artist for your page Piers!
A recent attempt to regulate and legalize online poker in the US by Nevada Senator Harry Reid was rejected. The UK offers legalized, regulated online poker; do you think the US should as well? Do you have any thoughts on the future of online poker in the States? Thank You
Isnt this idiots 15 minutes up yet? What a jerk this guy is. Comes to our country and acts like a jerk to people like Madonna, Howie Mandell and other hard working rags to riches success stories. This guy turns my stomach.
I don't see any reason to advertise his boycott of Madonna. She's so over, no one would notice that she's not being put on. I guess he just wanted to twist that knife stuck in that publicist.
The first thing that hit me was the white text on the light blue background. Maybe because I couldn't read it. And I'm only 20. I hope I'm not losing my PQ...
NO MO ON YOUR SHOW EVER COME ON THIS IS THE USA AND WE LOVE MO. PIERC GO HOME !!!
Oh Gosh!!! I might get a migraine by trying to keep up with his english accent.
maybe he is doing this becuase he has been banned from the dentist...
Uh huh, Piers...I'll bet Madonna is just weeping at the news that you're banning her from your pathetic show because of some slight from her publicist years ago. Get over yourself, egomaniac.
He owes a lot to Susan Boyle.
I love Pierce Morgan! He's a very good interviewer and he's a handsome Englishman. He can hold his own. I like that English wit, a little bit like Simon Cowell but more refined!
I'll be watching his show. Can't wait!!!
AC360 the best news
Anderson copper the best news on television
CNN edits even the most barley negeative comments. I guess CNN is not interested in displaying public opinions.
