Piers Morgan Tonight

Postby Penta » Mon Jan 17, 2011 4:29 pm

I gather Piers Morgan starts his replacement for Larry King tonight. I hope he makes a go of it. I've always had a soft spot for him, arrogant, insanely ambitious, rude as he is, though he is widely loathed here, I've never quite understood why.

Pity his show abbreviates as PMT.
Shes never interfered with me. I have no complaints about her.
Same here.
Mega ditto.
I met her once and I found her to be a nice lady. Not kookey in any way.
Penta has always been gracious, kind and very sane in all my interactions with her.

There's absolutely no way Morgan can be any worse than Larry King. What was the big deal about Larry King? Well, he did seem to blow everybody that came on the show, maybe that's why he was so popular. Not to mention he is one of the strangest looking people ever on TV.

I still think Sean Connery is the best Bond ever.
This town's leadership doesn't understand that we can compromise with these savage, merciless bisexual rapist-killers.

The fact that Larry King was employed at all has always baffled me. In America, the Brits can be jerks and get away with it for some reason. Some people view the accent as being "snobbish" no matter what accent it is so they enjoy being taunted by them because it gives them someone foreign yet familiar to hate...just the same way Brits hate Americans for being successful but not hate the Chinese for being more successful...because they cannot relate to the Chinese.

Anyway, I have no idea who Piers Morgan is but I am quite happy Larry King is gone. Ten years after the death of Larry King, people will say "He was really popular back in the day" but be confused as to why he was popular. They will be even more confused when they discover that he apparently was a major playboy as well.

Its because you can hate us from the comfort of an arm chair without the effort of getting the translation dictionary from the bookshelf all the way across the room beyond the TV

That was a hateful thing to say Caliban. And if I my feet had not been amputated from obesity related diabetes I would walk across the Mississippi River to England and kick your ass.

I sort of think Americans want our BritishTV imports to be elitist jerks as if that is how all British people act, just ask Simon Cowell and the chick from The Weakest Link.

A large proportion of the middle class is just like that, even when they're trying to be nice or helpful they're still staggeringly condescending.
