Did Piers Morgan already get fired from Rupert Murdoch’s TalkTV?

In March 2021, thin-skinned bully Piers Morgan stomped off the Good Morning Britain set when Alex Beresford – an attractive, intelligent, charismatic, Black weatherman – spoke in simple terms about how Piers has been verbally abusing the Duchess of Sussex for years. After he walked off the set, he threw an even bigger tantrum about how maybe he doesn’t even want to be on GMB anymore. ITV took him at his word and let him go. He spent months trying to get his job back to no avail. Then came Rupert Murdoch, who created TalkTV – a newsy network for and by large, loud, sweaty, fascist meatballs. Piers was supposed to be the showcase talent of TalkTV’s evening programming. The ratings have been dismissal – at times, only a few thousand people are watching Piers. For some of TalkTV’s programs, there are zero viewers. Rename it FlopTV! Anyway, Piers has been back on the airwaves for about six weeks. And now he’s “taking a break.”

Piers Morgan is taking a six-week break from his struggling TalkTV show Piers Morgan: Uncensored. The British TV presenter and author, who has been called a “c***” by one of his guests, mocked for interviewing a Taliban spokesperson, and had an explosive interview with former President Donald Trump, has a viewership that is dwindling.

A report earlier this month that Rupert Murdoch’s TalkTV has been rated as having “zero viewers” during certain points during primetime broadcasts. Morgan’s show’s figures from Wednesday (18 May) showed that his audience was only 24,000, which isn’t that much for evening television.

As a result of the announcement of Morgan’s break, some people have taken to social media to speculate that someone would have to step in for him. Media Guido wrote: “Understand @piersmorgan is taking a six-week break from his show, no news as to who will stand in for him with his 32,000 viewers.”

Another referenced Andrew Neil, the Scottish journalist, broadcaster and chairman of The Spectator who left GB News because of differences in the direction of the channel, added: “Andrew Neil took a break from GB News and never came back.”

This story is funny in itself, but then Piers made it so much more hilarious when he tried to get snippy about his “break.” He’s apparently coming to America to hang out with serial killers… and he’ll be gone for ten weeks? What kind of bullsh-t job is this? Piers shows up to work for six weeks, acts like a big, screamy, sweaty ham and then peaces out for ten weeks for some kind of side job? The internet people are right, he’s either been fired already or he will be soon. I love it when terrible things happen to terrible people.

    A stale, pale, male whose time is over. He is yesterday’s man. A lard of toxicity.

    It is encouraging to know that his lies and hate don’t appeal to a wide audience. If I were advertising on some of the tabloid sites that sell the same things I would be looking into how many real readers there actually are. They are most likely wasting their advertising dollars on sites that use them to buy bots.

  3. Rhoda+Cowboy says:

    Coming to America soon? God…just what we need in America at this moment is this pasty faced, inbred, island bound, tiara worshiping mother f@cker. Too harsh?

  4. Brit says:

    Piers literally canceled himself, lol. Piers has literally made his entire career about Meghan Markle at this point. It’s gotten to the point where he needs her for an interview. He is irrelevant in America, clearly in Britain and he’s a joke. Sharon Osborne defended this man and she lost in the end. Nothing good comes from being associated with him.

  5. ThatsNotOkay says:

    Rupert Murdoch has a truly profound failure on his hands at the end of his devil-bargained life. If only someone would sue Fox News and the SC would
    Proclaim it cannot in any way be labeled or use the name “news” source. It’s a small thing, but it needs to be stripped of any credibility.

  6. Amy Bee says:

    I mean after being out of a job for over a year the first thing you do at your new job is go on a 6 week Summer break. I think if the show was successful there would be no way he would be taking 6 weeks off a month after his show starts. I’m loving this for Morgan. It’s well deserved.

    • Lorelei says:

      The way he started that tweet with “apparently” definitely makes it sound like it was not his decision.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Of course it wasn’t and his return may still be up in the air as well!! Apparently, Piss Morgan is getting his just dessert’s!!!!!

  7. Noki says:

    With the Jubbly festivities around the corner isnt this the hottest time to be on UK television? What a strange period for a break.

    • equality says:

      Good point. Did the RF work out some kind of deal to have him out of the country during the jubbly?

      • Noki says:

        I think Harry loves his Grandma to bits but i think he definitely laid out a few conditions beyond his familys security. I think also the palace aides and rota rats and other media were told to either knock it off or bring it down several notches. Also explains Thomas Markle suddenly not going,how gross was it that he was going to Lady Cs house.

      • Lorelei says:

        We’ve all known for a long time that Lady C is trash, but inviting that man to stay in her house? That’s next level. Imagine having that guy come to stay at your home for some extended period of time? My brain goes haywire at this woman actually taking it that far.

      • Blithe says:

        Lorelei: Unless she knew from the beginning that Thomas Markle would never actually be coming to stay with her. I’m wondering if the threat of having him come was the whole point, while the reality would be that something (!) would prevent him from actually traveling, with bonus points if that “something “ could be somehow blamed on the Sussexes.

  8. SarahCS says:

    In case we didn’t already have a low enough opinion of this guy it’s handy to have the reminder that one of his other jobs is hanging out with serial killers, this isn’t his first series in this space. He’s a ghoul. I get that people have a fascination with true crime but I’m firmly in the camp that we should focus on the victims and forget the names of the perpetrators. Let the professionals study them if it’s going to help prevent future incidents.

  9. Eurydice says:

    Lol, what does it mean when you get more people interested because you’re leaving than when you’re actually there?

  10. Jay says:

    I think Piers has tried moving to America before, right? It didn’t go well for him. There’s no way this particular Meghan troll would leave town voluntarily with the Sussexes on their way, but I’m happy he won’t be around to spew his bile.

    • Lorelei says:

      When Larry King retired from his nightly talk show on CNN — can’t remember exactly when, but it was decades ago — Piers was brought in as his replacement. I remember CNN making a huge deal of it when they announced it and we’re promoting it, like it was such a coup to “get” Piers Morgan to take the job. IDK how long it lasted, but ratings tanked, and he pretty swiftly went back to the UK.

      I was about to say something like, “in all fairness, he wasn’t this deranged back then,” — but then I remembered the phone hacking scandal, which I *think* (?) happened before he stepped in for Larry King. Shame on CNN for hiring him after he was behind such an unbelievably disgusting, criminal scheme.

  11. Digital Unicorn says:

    TalkTV is a disaster and a pretty sure will soon be off the air – NO ONE watches it.

    Piers is lower than the sewers and the majority of people are disgusted by him and his ilk, Good riddance.

  12. Loretta says:

    AHAHAHAH so happy for his flop!

  13. Liz Version 700o says:

    Hahaha Karma has Piers’ address and is living there rent free!

  14. Jais says:

    He’s now known for being a man obsessed with a woman who has never given him the time of day. It’s embarrassing but a well-earned fall. Every venomous tweet or word he has said about her just makes him look more and more pathetic.

  15. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    We already have sweaty piles of douche meat on stages in front of cameras. Send this one elsewhere.

  16. Harla says:

    I love this for him! It’s so delicious to watch everyone involved in making the Sussex’s live miserable, getting exactly what they deserve.

  17. L4Frimaire says:

    I wish we’d be rid of this fungus of a man, but yesterday there was an ad for some show he has planned for some Fox streamer. Funny it was advertised on CNN. Ugh, he’ll bring his Meghan obsession to the states now and go full on bigot for Fox.

  18. Lady Digby says:

    Please can anybody clarify for me how allegedly Piss Moron met Meghan? Was it the friendly drink that he claims or just a fleeting glimpse at her from afar at a press junket?

    Now he’s being ghosted by bad dad and half sis in favour of Danny Rotten because GB news has three times as many viewers as him!!

    • Kkat says:

      They were both at a mixer for a brief amount of time. She was there with her work colleagues.
      If they ever spoke it was if they were briefly introduced at the work function

  19. diANNa says:

    There was simply no way Piss Morgan could succeed with a show going it as a solo host.
    I mentioned this when there was initially talk of his getting a show, but his views are mostly centre or centre left, with mostly his racism and aggression towards Meghan and other WOC (Osaka & Biles) being MAGA and BM tabloid style right wing.
    Those disparate views he vomits out from across the spectrum would be too much for any single large demographic to choose to follow (except for those looking for pure entertainment or enlightenment which I’m guessing he doesn’t provide) as most of us prefer an echo chamber or bubble of news and commentary which tends to echo our own world views.
    So unless he goes full MAGA, he will continue failing to attract any significant numbers as those peeps with actual values and decency have no interest in his hyped-up, deliberately provocative and sensationalist views.
    I read a Guardian review as well which posited that after years of struggle, those on Salt Isle are exhausted with tirades and angry rants and that’s why Piss and GB News/Talk TV are struggling. No one wants to hear it anymore.
    Don’t know what his future holds but to be in career crisis, and such a mess of a brand at his age is everything he deserves. A streamed show is one step above a self-made YouTube Channel.

    Glee levels in Britain are reaching the top of the dam and they may have to open the flood gates, because this has been a long time coming and everyone is enjoying it tremendously.

  21. Snarkle says:

    Piers hanging out with serial killers again? There are some good possible outcomes from this…

  22. J. Ferber says:

    Snarkle, is it wrong to hope that does not go well for him?
