Piers Morgan to end CNN show over bad ratings

Piers: "It's been a painful period"

Journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan is saying goodbye to his CNN talk show after three years on air.

Speaking to the New York Times, the 48-year-old star said: "It's been a painful period and lately we have taken a bath in the ratings... I think I can credibly do news and the ratings reflect that, but it is not really the show that I set out to do.

"I'd like to do work - interviews with big celebrities and powerful people - that is better suited to what I do well and fit with what Jeff is trying to do with the network."

The last episode of Piers Morgan Live is tipped to air next month (Mar14).
