Good episode? Give it some love!
Piers Morgan never did quite assimilate to American culture in his three-plus years as host of 'Piers Morgan Live'. Late last week, CNN announced that the show will be coming to an end next month, primarily due to consistently poor ratings. While Morgan himself has acknowledged that his audience has tired of "a British guy debating American issues, including guns, which [is] very polarizing," a decided lack of self-awareness during his tenure at CNN contributed heavily to his ultimate downfall.

In this podcast, Guy Evans looks back at some memorable moments of the now-cancelled show, and analyzes why Morgan could not relate to an American audience. Enjoy!
