Only In America: Personal Foul

In Wednesday's "Only in America," Piers Morgan asked the viewers to give the replacement referees in the NFL a break.

"From coast to coast, outrage is building over Monday night's 'fail Mary' that led to the Green Bay Packers' hotly-disputed loss to the Seattle Seahawks."

You heard Bill Clinton tell the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host it's time to end the lockout of NFL referees, "but is it fair to blame the replacement refs?":

"After all, they're amateurs doing their best under extremely pressurized circumstances," the host noted. "A situation that's not at all uncommon, especially in the Green Bay area."

Morgan proceeded to roll a clip of a replacement weatherman at our Green Bay affiliate, NBC-26 who couldn't seem to get the weather right.

"Poor guy!" the host exclaimed. "It's so easy to get the weather wrong, even by 300 degrees."

Only in America would Morgan tell America to give the replacement refs a break: "You never know when you may need one ... even if they can't be entirely trusted."

But wait, not only have we seen replacement referees this week and a replacement weatherman but also a replacement anchor! Lewis Black stepped in for Piers Morgan to express his grievances as "the annoying Brit-twit" never gives him "a chance to talk anybody but myself on the air even when he [Morgan] is sitting here."

Note: The NFL reached a deal with the referees late last night. The refs go back to work tonight.
