Dear Piers Morgan,

You are a terrible interviewer. 

Now in all fairness, I thought Larry King was also a terrible interviewer and never understood why people fawned over him for so long past his prime.  He was condescending and rarely bothered to get people's names right.  Even after they corrected him eight times.

But you are in many ways the total opposite.  You are a kiss ass.  Sucking up and drooling over guests.  But then you cut people off and don't let them answer your questions.  I don't think you intend to be rude, though it totally is.  I just think you love to hear your own voice. 

It doesn't matter because the bottom line is that I do not approve.  Given my long-standing disapproval of Larry King and Katie Couric (though I do like her and watch her now- but ask Bestie, I completely disliked her on the Today Show), I'm sure your job is solid for the next decade. 

But seriously, you are not good at your job.  In my clearly very humble opinion.

Not a fan,

I JUST learned that his name is Piers, not Pierce. This is mind boggling to me.

I haven't even checked out Morgan yet. After your review I think I will happily skip it.

Good afternoon from Tokyo!

We don't have the availability to see him in action (though I'm hearing it's not a real loss), but it's funny because I always heard he was alot like Simon Cowell: abrasive, cutting. How funny to learn he's very much the opposite and boring to boot.!

A lovely Friday to you!

can i just tell you that you hit the nail right on the head! i watch his interviews some times because i like to hear what the celebs have to say (thought the howard stern interview was pretty good). but wow, piers is a suck up (the kardashian sister interview) who is constantly cutting off people!

anyhoo, i thought you might be interested in entering my ELF 83-piece makeup palette and nail polish set giveaway!

We can completely agree on our disdain for Peirs.
I haven't seen his show, and only know of it through his made up rivalry with Howard Stern. (sorry I love H..most of the time). PM is totally starting this war claiming that he is the "king of all media". It's interesting to hear Howard's side of this imaginary war and how Piers is translating their interactions. He interviewed Howard and completely dropped the ball when H revealed something interesting, then came on Howard's show this week and said that was a pivotal point of their interview. That he never followed up on, or addressed. (such a bad interviewer)
I think Piers is an a hole and I'm glad I don't have television so I don't need to be bothered by this.
Even though I just left this enormous tirade....
Hope you're staying warm!!
And don't even get me started on Larry...

He's really not. And what's with his guest list? Oprah, the Kardashian sisters, NeNe Leakes, Howard random. Also, the Oprah interview was horrible.

PM: Oprah, you're amazing. How am I.
Oprah: PM, you're doing okay. But you're right, I am fabulous. Let's talk about me some more.

Blah, blah, blah. Boring.

Haha, great post - I totally agree!
