There couldn't have been a more thankless job than following in LK's time slot. No matter who on Earth took that spot, they would have been ripped apart. The fact that he's British may or may not be related to all of the negative feedback about his show, but what should be undeniable is that he's refreshingly persistent with his questioning, but is always composed and calm, never flying off the handle, even in the more heated debates, such as with Toure or Penn Jillette.
Being bold enough to poke at nerves with guests has to be done carefully, but everyone watching wants to know what a politician thinks about particular issues, and not many interviews go as deep as the public would like. Having Christine O'Donnell walk off her interview rather than field a question on the touchy LGBT subject is very telling of her position, and wouldn't have happened with a more reserved host.
It was unfortunate that he had to come along and be necessarily compared to Larry King, a fantastic host, but Morgan was confident and outspoken enough to take over a job that nobody was brave enough for. If that doesn't speak enough of his character, then the show itself ought to, if you try watching it with an open mind.
