    That's it Piers. I'm done. I've really been wanting to like your show, but I've come to realize what it really is. You do realize that this show airs in the US, right? I'm sure that all these British guests are very interesting to you, but I've had it. I'll be honest, I did really like the Ricky Gervais interview, and a few others were mildly interesting, but you're obviously making a show you would want to watch, without regard for your audience. Assuming that your show has an audience evenly distributed among all English-speakers (obviously not true, given that CNN is American, but meh), British people make what, 5% of that total? Yet they are something like 50% of your guests. Why?

    I suppose you could persuade me to watch again, but it's going to take a gesture on your part indicating that the show is something other than an opportunity for you to meet your personal heroes. A month free of British guests would be quite the breath of fresh air, methinks. Otherwise, you might as well just rename it "Piers Morgan Interviews Yet Another Popular but Unimportant British Narcissist."

    Simon Cowell is the biggest closet Queen on TV. When he reaches about 60 he will regret not coming out.
    But of course Piers wouldn't ask any difficult questions being a friend and employee of Simon Cowell.

    Mr. Morgan, I wish your video clip here would show the hilarious condescending exchanges between you & Simon Cowell ! lol , I thought his remarks on your twitter were really funny....And by the way, his left hand moves are pretty feminine...

    Wow Simon's face is so Botoxed it's frozen. Why people do that to themselves is beyond comprehension to me. They think people won't notice they have work done on their faces? Come on.

    But speaking to People, Cowell revealed that the US network Fox actually asked for another season of the reality show, although he decided to take a step back.
