I saw a clip from last night's show and Larry told guest Bill Maher that he'd like to see Ryan Seacrest take over. I suppose Ryan can do the celebrity/lighter subjects, but politicians? In a crisis?

"Seacrest Out."...Ugh. He's too busy dating Juliane Hough anyway.

How about the "Scuz Stud" Robert Engle? It's time for him to have a safer reporting job.

Larry King has said that he tries to ask the questions that reflect what the "average viewer" wants to know.

I think the average viewer wants to see more than shameless ass-k*ssing softball questions.

I'm afraid that's exactly what the "average viewer" wants; and Larry provides it to them!

I remember when he had a weekly column in USA TODAY's Life section. No interesting information whatsoever in those columns. Plus, half of the sentences contained ellipses ( ... ). He couldn't put a complete sentence together to save his life.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 did a great parody of King's column once. I'll post it if I can find a clip.

Julianne Hough is dating Ryan Seacrest!? Ugh, poor girl. I thought she had better taste.

Now Piers Morgan's name is being bandied about on line. Not sure what I think of him, but he *is* Donald Trump's first Celebrity Apprentice!! :)

He's been talked about for weeks as a replacement. I really don't see it happening.

He's also a liar (check out why he doesn't have the newspaper editor jobs he used to have in the UK) and a relentless self-promoter. Maybe those were good qualities for a job with Trump, but maybe not for qualifying someone to host a high-profile talk show.

I would agree that he provides it to them and then some, but I would respectfully disagree that this is what the average viewer wants. But maybe I am too optimistic....

They should hire someone like Ben Mulroney or Justin Trudeau. (or perhaps the US equvolent of... ) Both are young, media savy, have famous last names and been in front of cameras almost from the day they were born. LOL

Why not, its just a fluff and puff show, don't need anyone with any credibility to fill King's shoes!

I would have liked CNN to hire Tavis Smiley from PBS as I heard his name tossed around, but Piers Morgan isn't any worse than Larry King. I'm not that enthusiastic about him after what overedge revealed about him, but he seems like he'll be the kind of vanilla host that CNN wants.
