    So I've watche Piers for 21 minutes, gave it a try, however this wagering against Oprah for Vicks interview, discussing Cricket and interrupting her when she when she was about to share "the greatest feeling she has ever had" (in Australia).

    The man is rude. Thinks way too much of himself, laughs at his own not so funny lines and tries way too hard to be a male Barbara Walters.

    Love CNN, however you need to replace Larry King with some with more substance.

    Hello! Piers Morgan's "Tonight" was GREAT! He interviews with such a great sense of humor. His laughter is so refreshing, as opposed to Diane Sawyer & Barbara Walters, who always tilt their head & squint their eyes in such a dramatic way, trying to ask such serious (and ridiculous) questions. BRAVO!! to Piers Morgan.

    So i watched Piers morgan's "tonight" and it was superb. He has a great sense of humour and he is sooo refreshing. Oprah enjoyed herself and was totally into the whole interview. It was so interesting i didn't want it to end.

    What I am liking about Piers Morgan is his style makes me feel like I'm having fun conversation in my living room! Nice and interesting, and the thing flows. Much better than watching "lecture" interviews or "you-comiserate-over-my-latest-blunder" interviews.

    Piers! Good interview with Howard! I love Howard and would love to see more of him on the show!

    The problem I noted with his interviewing skills is that he doesn't allow his guests to fully answer questions without cutting them off and talking about himself. No new information was gleaned from Howard Stern. I didn't care for Larry King but at least his guests did most of the talking. I know far too much about Piers from his interviews with other people.

    Love Piers, but how about NOT interrupting your guests, it's so rude and I'm interested in what they have to say. Please let them finish!

    Condi Rice certainly repeated the same weak argument for going to war with Saddam. I wish Piers had grilled her more. She always takes the indisputable role of being right even tho she is responsible for deaths of our boys and Iraqis. She is as deep in treason as Bush and Cheney and the rest of the fake war administration. She will stick to her lies until the end and she deserves no press and should not have been invited on nor let run the show tonight.

    Never saw anyone fall so fast. The Oprah interview was interesting and I actually learned something. Piers barely held his own against Howard Stern, who proved that he's still obnoxious and totally self-centered. Control seemed to go back and forth.Then, tonight, there was Condasleaza Rice, who sounded like the Howard Johnson of politicians. Nothing new, revealing, insightful or meaningful in this hour of drivel. After all the hype, I'm wondering why we have to endure this hysterical blandness.

    Piers Morgan: "I will not be boring."
    Dude, you really are.

    dear piers- i am watching you speak with dr rice tonight...please, please let your guests speak without interuptions. your interview with oprah was very good for a first night-but i hope cnn will give you time to settle down before people judge you. i am a sworn-in-my-blood democrat, but i am interested to hear what dr rice has to say in response to your very good questions. you seem calmer towards the end of the interview. i am sure you are prepared for your work, much more so than larry king. i will always miss larry on cnn, but i never watched him for any real information. condoleeza rice is a facinating interview. just pleeease allow your guest toi finish their answer before jumping in a different direction. do well-i think you will be an exciting addition to cnn

    Gee –didn't really like the tenor of Piers Morgan's interview with Condy Rice. His (liberal) bias was very evident –felt like I was watching MSNBC rather than CNN. And really don't feel it appropriate for a Brit who is basically visiting here to take a political position here in the States. Piers needs to be reminded (since he knows so much about American politics) that if he demonstrates a political bias in his interviews, he will offend 50% of his viewers, no matter what side he takes.

    I really think CNN could have made a better choice –their very own Anderson Cooper for one.

    ONE Suggestion:
    PLEASE , ¡Por favor! Let your guest speak, DO NOT INTERRUPT!!!!! I want to hear/ listen to your guest.

  18. Susan

    I've watched all of your programs thus far and have enjoyed them; HOWEVER, you tend to interrupt your guests far too much and do not allow them to finish their finish their sentences or complete their thoughts. Please stop this!

    January 20, 2011 at 1:28 pm |
  19. Rick

    PLEASE stop interrupting your guests! We are tuning in to hear what they have to say FAR MORE than what you have to say. Thank you.

    Instead of "I will not be BORING," how about "I will not INTERRUPT." As long as your GUESTS aren't boring, I don't really care if you are or not. I just can't handle the INTERRUPTIONS. And thus far, there have been far, far too many. Not off to a good start.

    I wish CNN will provide less edited or unedited version of two-hour interviews online. I watched Howard Stern's interview. Piers seemed like he was constantly interrupting and merely going down the list of questions without digging deep. Sometimes it was bizarre like briefly talking about Obama and then about Robin (Howard's African American co-worker) as if Obama and Robin are related. I am assuming editing had something to do with some of these problems. Why not make it a live interview like Larry King?

    Piers Morgan is an excellent addition to CNN. He's well
    prepared, sharp and funny. It's refreshing to see such a unique
    person as Piers.

    As a former teacher, I have one easily corrected concern. At times he
    cuts a guest off, before s/he finishes talking. This is controlling
    and rude. He also tends to rush the guest to answer questions.
    It would help if he would slow down the pace of the interview.
    The interview would be a lot more interesting if he made the above.

    After watching 2 episodes of this show, it is NOT very good. Piers speaks too fast! He speaks with an accent so slow it down, keep your questions FOCUSED! He ask one far range topic, then jumps to another that has NO RELATION to that "in depth" question that he just asked! He needs training on how to do an interview. Nice set but I am sure this show won't last be a success because he does not have professional interviewing skills. Get someone else.

  24. E. Arredondo

    Piers Morgan is another reason NOT to watch CNN, he is out of touch with the United States, and is as funny as Ricky Gervais on The Golden Globes (tasteless snot), what is this obsession with the Brits....... get a REAL interviewer, he is not the next male Barbara Walters.......

    January 20, 2011 at 5:35 pm |
  25. Adriana

    Just wanted to say that I loved Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes...he is a comedian, and a great one,what did they expect?

    Larry was much more likeable and his interviews were relaxed. Larry did not talk about himself and seemed to really listen and be interested in what the guest had to say. I miss him. He didn't show his own biases about a subject. It was just more fun to watch his interviews than piers's interviews, at least so far. What a boring show with mr. morgan. Hope he's cancelled. Find someone more interesting and funnier that everyone likes and can watch easily night after night

    Piers your show is fantastic.
    However please pay attention when asking a question, allow your guest to answer that question, in many occasion they have asked you to "Let me finish" as a viewer I find it annoying.
    Good luck!

    Piers Morgan your show is excellent! I will be a regular viewer, keep up the good work!

    Piers interrupts because he wants to be The Show all by himself. After all, he is the most interesting person he knows. Ideally he could interview himself - jumping from one chair to another.
    Morgan is a flashy but shallow product. Like junk food, he provides a temporary rush but no long term satisfaction. Piers Is not a good listener and keeping quiet is a real challenge. He is also NOT a journalist. He is a celebrity-chasing tabloid proctologist complete with oily fingertips and a flashlight. CNN struggles for audience share and ratings supremacy and it bets on Piers’ natural "kick butt" (his words) tabloid instincts to provide an edge. Today’s media killing fields are unforgiving and take no prisoners. Morgan may deliver, maybe not. Does it really matter to viewers?
    We’re bombarded with so much product and so many choices and channels that we flit from one thing to another. Soon everything is a blur, and there is very little to sustain our attention. Too many copy-cat talk shows. Too many copy-cat cop shows. Too many copy-cat talent shows. Too many copy-cat Housewives shows. Too many copy-cat political talking head shows. What can CNN-Morgan possibly conjure up next to grab our eyes? Scenario: Morgan greets his prey (oops guests) with a toothy leer and, CNN Presents – The Real Thing: Broadside Bash and Cannibal Feast, starring Bwana Piers "Celebrity Hunter" Morgan. Then, shrunken head promo items, the inevitable movie franchise, book deals, etc.
    Will it come to this before viewers decide they’ve had enough and demand better? Or will we be so lethargic by then that we won’t know the difference – or care?

    Bloody hell. What a bunch of prats. Your show is good and getting better everytime you edge a little further toward not worrying, just carrying on an intelligently edgy but friendly conversation; plus mixing things up with the element of surprise from time to time.

    As far as your being British, so what? Most Americans are fond of our brothers from across the pond ...

    Piers is so refreshing, love how he interacts with his guests,
    great ability to find out things no-one else seems to be able to bring
    Never seen all the sides of Oprah before, incrediably intelligent convesation with Ms Rice, also with the Mayor New York.

    Simily refreshing and something different from the usual run0of-the-mill interviewers. Its like a change to look at a face that doesn't have botox or surgery in America, or a stock thin model, or a person who believes tht you are only successful if you are filthy rich....

    I believe America has been CONNED. New people, new direction, and new values, and you may just learn that money is not everything,
    power, isn't everything, and there is a whole world outside the United States of America....yes we also exist, and we also believe in God and some even follow him rather than mammon.

    The biggest problem with Piers is his interrupting the guests. Apart from that he does a good interview but in the end as far as the viewer is concerned...are the guests interesting. We've all seen Oprah and Stern and the well known celebrities so I think to survive Piers is going to have to find the real controversial guests to maintain and enlarge his audience. Unfortunately for Piers there are simply too many other games in town so as mentioned he is going to have to go after the real hot issues and the people behind them. Anyway Piers...good luck.
