Piers Morgan to be fired by CNN, replaced by Bill Weir?

piers-morgan-limeyReports are circulating that CNN is going to fire Piers Morgan. The failed British experiment to replace Larry King proved to be an epic failure for CNN like most of whatever else they do. Rumors are circulating that ABC assclown Bill Weir will replace Morgan in his time slot. Bill Weir was once a sportscaster in Los Angeles on KABC and sucked at that too, he sure wouldn’t get ratings for CNN if they do chose him. Just one week into the Kelly File with Megyn Kelly and already Piers Morgan gets the ax. Is this some kind of record?

TVNewser beat us to the punch on the news that his new role is with CNN. But that is only part of the story. A reliable source connected to CNN tells Mediaite that Weir has been promised a show during the 9 p.m. ET hour — an hour that happens to be currently occupied by Piers Morgan.

According to our source, the details and timing have not yet been worked out (and we are told it will likely take “many months”) but that Weir is expected to get either half or all of the 9 p.m. slot, meaning Morgan will either move time slots or, at best, reduce to a half hour of airtime per evening. Another CNN source tells us that Weir’s show will likely launch in “late night” but our original source insists the goal would be to test it out for an eventual move to the 9 p.m. hour.

Either way, the British host, who’s become associated with his anti-gun fights, as of late, looks to be losing the full 9 p.m. hour.

Bill Weir signed with CNN earlier today and is every bit the extremist progressive liberal gun grabbing Democrat that Piers Morgan in. At least he wouldn’t have that annoying accent.
