Piers Morgan, who is best known as the no-nonsense judge on “America’s Got Talent,” will be replacing Larry King in January 2011.
Larry King has been hosting CNN’s “Larry King Live” for many years. He has interviewed hundreds of celebrities, politicians and musicians as well as families who have dealt with child abductions and murder. His talk show has dealt with just about every topic imaginable.
Larry King Live is done in a very relaxed setting and usually with only one-on-one interviews. Confrontational interviews are very rare on Larry King Live.
What can we expect from Piers Morgan? Will his talk show have the same relaxed setting? Will there be more controversy? What kind of talk show can we anticipate seeing?
Piers Morgan has hosted a talk show on British TV as well as other TV related jobs in Britain. He has done very well with these TV choices.
Piers Morgan has a unique personality. He can be funny and relaxed or serious and on edge as he has demonstrated on “America’s Got Talent.” How will his personality affect his new talk show? Will he talk candidly with his guests or will he be a host that argues with them? It really could go either way and it will be interesting to see in which direction the show is taken.
Personality plays a big part in how a talk show is viewed by a audience. If the viewers like the talk show host and how the host acts with his guests on the air then the show will more then likely get good ratings.
Piers Morgan has a good on screen appearance. He can use his personality to draw the viewing audience to watch his talk show. Viewers will be interested in seeing his no-nonsense ways as well as his easy going attitude.
Larry King’s easy interviewing style will be missed but Piers Morgan might be a breath of fresh air to the viewing talk show audience.
