Piers Morgan Live

CNN has canceled Piers Morgan Live.

The news network have confirmed the nightly show - which was previously known as Piers Morgan Tonight - is coming to an end after over three years, though the exact date of the final program is yet to be determined. The British presenter told the New York Times newspaper he and CNN president Jeff Zucker had discussed the future of the program last week and decided to cancel it following "painful" ratings, which he believes is due to a failure to "connect" with American people.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Prime Time, Talk Shows, Gossip, Internet,

Kelsey GrammerKelsey Grammer "ran out" on an interview after seeing a picture of his former wife. The former Frasier star was due to be interviewed by Piers Morgan for CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight but became so uncomfortable after seeing a photograph of his ex Camille Grammer that he left the building before filming began.

"Kelsey Grammer was supposed to be on my show now but ran out of the building. Strange. #CNN So, Kelsey Grammer saw a photo of his ex wife Camille in the open to our show and legged it. Extraordinary. Never had this happen before. I had a very friendly chat with Kelsey backstage, He said he was really looking forward to the interview. Weird. #CNN (sic)," Piers wrote on Twitter.

When Piers' former America's Got Talent co-star Simon Cowell responded by saying "I know how he feels," Piers joked it was possible Simon's new show The X Factor which scared him off. "I suspect Kelsey was watching X Factor in the green room and suddenly felt nauseous," he wrote.

So, is Charlie Sheen Crazy or What?

Charlie Sheen says that he’s clean and focused following an “epiphanous awakening,” and when we figure out just what he means by that we’ll let you know. “I’m on a quest to claim absolute victory on every front,” he told Piers Morgan on CNN.

If victory means practically monopolizing the media, Sheen’s already there. The actor's publicist quit on Monday, saying he is “unable to work effectively” at his job, and it’s no wonder. Charlie Sheen has been calling TMZ, CNN, Good Morning America and -- it seems -- anyone else who’ll pick up the phone.

Alec Baldwin ‘Interested’ in Political Office

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Movies, Television,

“It’s something that I’m very, very interested in,” actor Alec Baldwin told CNN’s Eliot Spitzer, when asked if he would ever get into the political game.

“I do believe that people want to believe that someone who deeply cares about the middle-class ... would like to seek public office."

But then again, Baldwin seems committed to his current career.

He qualified his statement with this: "To quit [acting] now when it really feels good and doing it feels good would be an enormously difficult thing to do.”

"What's missing is  ... people who have not lost sight of what the middle-class in this country needs.” (Because, clearly, Alex Baldwin knows just exactly what that is.)

The actor's interview with CNN will air Wednesday on Parker Spitzer.

Dr. Drew Pinsky

Dr. Drew Pinsky is branching out to another cable show. The Celebrity Rehab star and Loveline host will soon have his own series on CNN’s HLN network, the "news and views" channel.

Beginning in the spring season of 2011, Dr. Drew will begin hosting a show where he talks about current headlines and events. The series will debut shortly after the fourth season of Drew’s Celebrity Rehab wraps on VH1.

HLN vice president Scot Safon says Pinsky is “an ideal fit” for the network. “Dr. Drew will shed light, provide crucial information and give viewers something to talk -- and think -- about,” he said.

Dr. Drew is excited about the project. "I'm looking forward to becoming part of the HLN family and digging deep to bring out the stories behind the stories that people are talking about,” he recently told CNN.

Michael Lohan to Press: We’re Through

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Movies, Music, Child Stars, Videos,

“After serious thought and conversation last night … with all due respect to those who have both gotten on my nerves for reporting things that weren’t true, (as well as things that were), I want to make a public statement that I will not be commenting on ANYTHING relating to my daughter Lindsay [Lohan], or ANYTHING my ex wife Dina, or any ‘sources’ related to her, might say.”

Michael Lohan released that statement out of nowhere this week, just days after multiple comments to the press regarding his role in his daughter’s life. “I realize how my statements and actions have had a ripple effect on [my family]…the things I have said and done, have caused hurt, pain and embarrassment for all of them.”

Just to be clear, Lohan added: “I WILL NOT respond, in ANY way to what is said or done, to me.”

Lohan ended his statement (which we’ve paraphrased in the interest of brevity) with a polite request that no one contact him again. He sent his statement to CNN, one of the least-watched news agencies in the world … and frankly, we expect to hear from him again very soon.

VIDEO: Jon Stewart Addresses Rick Sanchez Scandal


Although it’s been days since Rick Sanchez made unflattering remarks about Jon Stewart (and his own CNN bosses), we had to wait until Monday night to hear Stewart’s response to the controversy.

Despite being called a “bigot,” host feigned excitement about being mentioned by the (former) CNN anchor. “Rick Sanchez knows my name!” he squealed.

Stewart even gave props to Rick—who claimed Jon “grew up in a suburban, middle-class New Jersey home with everything that you could every imagine”—for really nailing “what is was like growing up in Central Jersey in the early seventies. The fortunate son of a single mother in the education field.”
