Tension, Tumult and Tenacity – A collection of moments from "Piers Morgan Live"

In his more than three years as host of a primetime program on CNN, Piers Morgan never shied away from controversy, never dodged a critique, never sidestepped an emotional exchange.

And as a result, for 39 months, the coveted nine o'clock time slot was home to jaw-dropping explosions, passionate outbursts and raw, powerful questions and confrontations.

Now, as Morgan prepares to leave his iconic blue and green studio behind, we proudly present a collection of some of his most fiery moments.

January 7th, 2013 – Alex Jones and "The Republic will rise again"

August 17th, 2011 – Christine O'Donnell walks off mid-interview

January 16th, 2013 – Morgan crumples script, says "It makes me sick!"

July 11th, 2012 – Robert Blake vs. "Charlie Potatoes"

July 17th, 2013 – Morgan to Larry Elder: "I think you're stupid!"

April 2nd, 2012 – "Oh Toure, you're such a tedious little twerp"

May 19th, 2011 – Ted Nugent: "Suck on my machine gun"

July 20th, 2012 – Morgan on Aurora – "The day to debate was yesterday"

January 10th, 2013 – "Do you understand how absurd you sound?"

March 5th, 2012 – Michele Bachmann – "Well that's rude"

Of Morgan's most volatile and explosive interviews, which one stands out to you?

    I have watched CNN for many years but the firing of Piers has gone too far. Sure hope you have a great replacement or I will no longer be watching CNN.

      Carol, if you're not going to watch CNN because of the firing of P. Morgan, which should have been done years ago, you won't be missing anything because you surely did not learn anything in the past ! I have never figured out why anyone would want to watch Morgan, who is so anti-American it is unbelievable. Go back to what ever country he came from and entertain those people. I'm sure they will love his communist thoughts.

    CNN was my favorite show. Since there will be no more Piers Morgan I will not enjoy it ever again. He is brilliant and a wonderful iterviewer. So nice to look at too. What was the real reason he was fired?

    Sorry to see Piers is leaving. Enjoyed his program and willingness to stand up to the big business lobbyist nonsense. How many guns do they really need to sell to feed the greed? Until people tire of this, it will keep on keeping on. Thanks to Piers for standing up and saying what so many are thinking. I do respect your courage. We need more people willing to do so. Sorry to lose your, much welcomed, voice of reason. Hope to see you again.

    He exposed them all for who they really are and their child-like mentalities. They only want to win an argument. None.....want to fix or have ever suggested more than a 4th grader's response to his plea for answers. They won't get it till their family members are victims. Sad.....but coming.

    Goodbye and Good luck Piers Morgan. I enjoyed your show every night because of your honesty and anti gun
    position. It took a lot of guts to state your case and now you are paying the price because of the gun lobbyist's.
    I am disgusted with CNN and I doubt I will ever watch CNN again. I wish Piers all the best in the future and I hope to see him again soon on some other intelligent network. Keep up with your courage and humanity. All the best and God bless you and your family.

    I was one of those who ordered Piers Morgan to Interview 101.... where hopefully he would learn to listen.. His impatience with civil discourse was beyond irritating, even when he fell on the side of empathy and compassion. He was right about gay rights and gun control, but he undermined his good intentions by failing to maintain objectivity. Now, of course, we miss him and CNN has revealed its insecurity, dashing from one desperate strategy to another. Morgan was tractable. He was improving. Too bad you didn't give him a second chance.

    On the Subject of George Clooney's
    I Think that Amal can become a fine Catholic Woman.
    But when everything is said and done
    Amal could have done Better.
    Sometimes it Sucks Beiiing George Clooney's Age.

    Thank you Piers for redirecting the subject on "The Doctors"about people that lie about having cancer for money, back to the cancer fighters. You point is so well taken, (although illegal to give them cancer). Dr Stork presented it in a way that drives people to not trust in the people that do have cancer, and have no concept of the suffering. Cancer is physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually alienating. When you get cancer, after you have been treated and you are waiting and waiting and suffering more while you wait years, to see if it worked. In the meantime, people are so stunned, and frustrated that they stop contact. If they have the guts to contact you, they really only want to hear you are fine, and then you don't hear from them again.
    It is a torturous situation, while your work/financial life falls apart as well. I know you know this Piers, from your genuine, passionate response.
    Thank You!!

    Imagine getting hundreds of people flooding your inbox on autopilot, 24/7 with 100 percent commissions of $500 a day. This is made thanks to traffic conveyed on autopilot over various “viral tiers”. More details:

    My husband and i got quite relieved John managed to conclude his basic research while using the ideas he received in your weblog. It's not at all simplistic to just choose to be giving for free key points a number of people may have been making money from. And now we know we now have the website owner to be grateful to because of that. All of the illustrations you've made, the straightforward site navigation, the friendships you can make it possible to create – it's everything unbelievable, and it's really facilitating our son and our family understand this matter is fun, and that's quite serious. Many thanks for everything!
