Piers Morgan’s TV ratings tumbled 80% and it’s not just Donald Trump putting the boot in – 9 favourite takedowns

Spare a thought – only kidding – for Piers Morgan, whose ratings for his much-hyped new TV show have tumbled 80% since launch.

Piers Morgan Uncensored launched with much fanfare on Talk TV with Morgan’s interview with Donald Trump. But in the week since, average ratings have fallen from 317,000 to 62,000, reports the Guardian.

Some shows have even been getting the dreaded ‘zero rating’.

Trump wasn’t happy with how the trailer for his interview made it look like he stormed out, and it didn’t take him long to put the boot in.

And it turned out the former president might be on to something. Well, it had to happen sometime.

Morgan wasn’t taking it lying down, of course.

Not that we’re trying to rub it in or anything, but here’s how Morgan’s old employer (and colleague) is doing.

And here are just a few of the other things people were saying about Morgan today.

Last word to Morgan, who absolutely, definitely, 100% wasn’t taking the ratings (or the Guardian story) to heart.

Maybe it’s not as bad as the Guardian made it out to be, right Piers?
