It seems that Piers Morgan’s draw on the public is fading.
He is about to take a six-week break from his show as the viewing figures have shown that it hasn’t been much of a success.
His programme Piers Morgan: Uncensored has been drawing in under 30,000 souls. Figures from Wednesday (18 May) showed that his audience was only 24,000. One assumes the commissioners were expecting a lot more eyeballs.
However, Morgan was called a “c***” by one of his guests, which did go viral.
He was also slammed for interviewing a member of the Taliban.
A recent report revealed that Rupert Murdoch’s TalkTV has been rated as having “zero viewers” during certain points during primetime broadcasts.
It is thought that Morgan’s six-week break is a pre-scheduled and planned summer holiday, and he could work on his true-crime series on the same network.
Sympathy was in short supply:
