Oh, burn!

Is it possible to lose viewers when no one is watching already? Piers Morgan seems to think so. He’s a bit spooked at the prospect of Megyn Kelly broadcasting during his time slot when she moves to primetime:

But he should save his energy and stop worrying. After all, by this point, he should be used to eating Fox News’ dust.

  • Cmate

    It’s either Megan or Hannity, Piers. Either way you’re toast.

    • lainer51

      Or Mickey and Minnie; with Piers, it really doesn’t matter. His wife will remain his sole viewer (maybe)

      • Cmate

        Yeah, and I heard she watches O’reilly on the side.

  • Karla M

    If she is moving to prime time what show is being moved or cancelled?

    • bb8689

      She is moving to prime time this fall after she returns from maternity leave. It hasn’t been made know what her time slot will be.

        • lukuj

          That is my guess too. I wonder where they will put Greta, though.

    • Steve_J

      Not sure they would have to cancel anybody since B’OR at 10 and Hannity at 11 are reruns.

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      O’Reilly! Did you hear (this afternoon) he was Fired?!? Still awaiting the full story… Jawamax 8<{D}

      • Clete Torres

        I’ve seen nothing to confirm. Where did you hear it?

      • smartone

        You don’t fire the NUMBER 1 person is all of cable news! Duh!

      • gary4205

        NOPE, America couldn’t be that lucky, Ted Baxter just signed a huge new LOOONG Term contract.

      • James Cushman

        Shep Smith said that on his show. As a joke.

      • Marjorie

        We should be so lucky!

        • anonymouse

          you don’t believe in choice? Unless it’s about killing babies I suspect…..TURN THE CHANNEL if you aren’t an O’Reilly fan. There’s millions of us, we won’t miss you one teensy bit.

          • Marjorie

            Good grief…it was just a comment…no need to get your knickers in a twist.

    • Jeremy

      I think Shemp Smith will get 2 hours in the afternoon and Megyn Kelly will get his old 7 PM ET slot.

  • ArmyRetPat

    Could be Greta. Rumor has it she may go back to CNN. I don’t know what Morgan is talking about; I don’t know anybody who watches this exiled brit.

  • Michelle

    Oh, get yourself Piers, the rest of us have.

    Fox should put on a test pattern. I know it would beat Piers.

  • ELC

    Piers seems to be jumping the gun…no one has said what time she will be on and already he’s in a nervous sweat. Must be because his show is probably not attracting a lot of viewers which wouldn’t surprise me. What’s laughable is that he really isn’t that important to prime-time himself…there are others who would do a much better job in that time slot. I will say that I am a bit curious as to what time Megyn will be slotted for and if they are rearranging Hannity and Greta?Piers has nothing to worry about…he can’t keep up with anyone on Fox so he shouldn’t even worry about competing.

    In order to poach you must have viewers and Piers does not!

    Bye bye Shep @7pm est. Was never a fan unless a car chase was in progress or a kid got launched in a homemade balloon.

    • Jason Call

      C’mon. Shep reads the news. You need him to shout over people a la O’Reilly/Hannity? Lose the Fox Report and Special Report and Fox couldn’t even keep “News” in its name. Well, I just like Shep. I’m sure you have fine reasons for not being his fan

      • Joe W.

        Sure do, Sport. Shep is a liberal. that’s reason enough for me.

        • Jason Call

          And there it is, Chisel-Chest. I was sure you had a fine reason. I figure he reads the news, and enunciates well enough.

          Okay, check this out: I looked for a YouTube clip where Smith opined conservative-like, just to post here for provocation. Pretty hard to find. Okay, real hard. You’re correct that Shep’s a Liberal. I never realized that he editorialized so much, and forgot about Studio-B in the early afternoon.

          And such nice manners and diction, too. Be dern.

          • Joe W.

            “Chisel-Chest”??? Cute. You and Shep would make a lovely couple.

          • Jason Call

            Yeah, two wild and crazy guys no kidding! Like Steve Martin and Eugene Levy.
            Note that I conceded your point that Shep’s a Liberal, and please take the credit for having pointed it out to me. Heretofore, I’ve perceived him as one who reads the news to a camera, and approved of his manner and style in the execution of such. I don’t watch that much cable news, however, and I’m afraid I was unaware that the old boy had authored so much opinion and analysis.
            Like I said, be dern–as in, well, I’ll be derned. Seriously, dern me. I totally deserve it.

          • Joe W.

            No problem, Jason. We all learn new things every day here on the interwebs. I appreciate your courtesy….

          • gary4205

            Shep is also listed as one of the 20 most powerful gay men.

        • smartone

          Shep is the ONLY Fox personality I absolutely refuse to watch. He should go to MSDNC or CNN.

      • Rob Stevely

        Shep cant read a sentence without stumbling over at least one word.

      • lainer51

        Shemp, er, Shep should be on MSLSD…. his whining would fit right in

        • gary4205

          You know, he’s actually started growing on me. It ain’t that he’s good, it’s just the other cable networks are so horrible!

    • Jason Call

      C’mon. Shep reads the news. You need him to shout over people a la O’Reilly/Hannity? Lose the Fox Report and Special Report and Fox couldn’t even keep “News” in its name. Well, I just like Shep. I’m sure you have fine reasons for not being his fan

    • NixTyranny

      My wager is that Greta gets her wish to finally have a show earlier than 10pm (as stated in her recent interview by Larry King online) and gets Shep’s 7:00pm time while Megyn gets Greta’s current slot at 10:00pm..

      • Cindy Nowicki

        I think Megyn will get the 9pm slot and Hannity gets 10pm.

        • NixTyranny

          With your scenario Greta goes where?

          • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

            Bill’s old spot…Where else? Jawamax 8<{D}

          • NixTyranny

            Hmmm. Not an O’Reilly viewer myself–can’t stand him–but I don’t see the #1-rated show on cable getting bounced.

          • Melvin Slade

            O’Reilly runs a close second with Obama in being full of himself. I’ve watched his “tough guy” interviews and he can lob softball questions with the worst of them. He’s also gotten a tad obsessed with his Killing somebody books.

          • MissJames

            The ones that are best sellers and being made into movies?

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Nope..He won’t get “Purged”… Rupe and Roger would be Crazy to do it!! He’s the “PRIMETIME NEWS GUY!” Jawamax 8<{D}

    It’s Maddow who’s sweating it out, not Piers.He never had an audience! Maddow’s viewership has been steadily falling, come September, it’s all over!

    • V the K

      No way does MSDNC lose Maddow. She’s the anchor of their softball team. Chris Hayes’s girly little wrists can barely get the ball over the plate and Ed Schultz can’t get from first base to second without a myocardial infarction.

      • anonymouse

        Hayes is Maddow in drag. Isn’t that ironic!

  • Dragomance

    I wonder who’ll be Megyn’s stand-in while she’s on maternity leave?Also,if Piers is still primetime after this long,the other CNN shows must somehow be even more dreadful.

    • syvyn11

      Maybe Alyson Camerrotta.

      • jebjr

        Perhaps Shannon Bream. Megyn should be back in time for Shannon to return to her SCOTUS gig.

      • Melvin Slade

        That would kill weekend mornings. I could handle a Michelle Malkin show. Hell, Fox has a harem of smart, gorgeous ladies to place where needed. I think that is one reason liberals despise them. Most all of their females are drop dead beautiful and way smarter than your average bear.

        • syvyn11

          Don’t think Malkin is willing to leave Colorado for a weekend show.

  • socalcon

    Long odds that Morgan makes it past Kelly’s maternity leave, anyways.

    • gary4205

      You may be on to sumthin!

  • RedSoloCup

    Ditto, Pissy Piers doesn’t want to lose his two viewers.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    FOX FIRED O’EILLY?!? More on the story, PLEASE!! BTW, I hope Meg blows Musket Morgan away! Wait, stop…. BTW, Just sayin…They should’ve shown more clips of Megyn on the rampage! Those are COOL! Jawamax 8<{D}

    • gary4205

      Nope, Fox just renewed Ted Baxter, Hanity, Greta, Shemp Smith and Megyn. Not sure who goes where. Maybe Shemp gets cut back to one hour?

  • froggy19510

    Piers Morgan doesn’t want Megyn Kelly poaching his viewers.
    Tha’ts not going to happen. Piers Morgan doesn’t have any viewers.
    He only has his mummy.

  • Jeremy

    ha ha.Piers is worried he will lose all 10 viewers he has now.

  • Jeremy
  • Eastwood Ravine

    It’s funny when Piers clenches-up. Megan Kelly is so going to own him.

  • Jack Deth

    Memo to Mr. “Musket” Morgan:

    When one has no viewers.

    How can one complain of another possibly poaching them?

  • Mario Leone

    he’s gotta pick on someone his own size (ratings wise)….like rachel madcow

  • Ken Alan Draper

    Fox news channels commercials have higher ratings then Jetty morgan’s show.

  • http://Twitter.com/jkerrysforehead John Kerry’s Forehead

    Had to read headline twice thinking it was a typo by Twitchy. Then I realized it was talking about Piers Morgan’s show….so the singular “viewer” is accurate.

    “Running scared! Piers Morgan doesn’t want Megyn Kelly poaching his viewer”

    No worries for Piers, however, because that one viewer is his mum.

  • CJ

    I don’t think Piers needs to worry…the dolts that watch him hate beautiful, conservative, intelligent women.

  • John Howard

    The Piers Morgan viewer, where pathetic and funny intersect.
