There is a new talk show host in town. Piers Morgan (U.S. readers might know him as a former judge on America’s Got Talent) has taken over Larry King’s spot on CNN. In his first week alone, he interviewed Oprah, George Clooney and Howard Stern. I’ve probably watched his show more than I did Larry’s in the last 3 years combined.
Yet with such high profile guests in the early weeks, what happens when he is only left with being able to interview “celebrities” the likes of the Kardashian sisters or similar? Would he have to break down and try to nab an interview with Madonna, Howie Mandell, or Heather Mills (all according to the NY Mag are on his banned list).
Side note: Piers was a hard one to caricature for me. After many attempts, what you see above I was finally happy with and my wife was able to identify without prompting. But now the more I look at it, I can’t stop seeing Eric Stoltz in Mask. Sorry Piers.
Update: Ok I was completely kidding when I said the Kardashian joke but I guess he indeed did interview them last week and it was not a ratings success.
