The born-again alt-folk singer stopped by the show in order to apologize for and clarify anti-gay remarks she made at a concert March 17. (A sample: “When they stop Prop 8 and force priests at gunpoint to marry gays, it will be the downfall of civilization, and Jesus will come back… You can go on Twitter and say, ‘Michelle Shocked says God hates f—s.’”) While Shocked began by unequivocally admitting that she “made a mistake, »

Piers Morgan Tonight host Piers Morgan clearly has not had enough, nor can he get enough of, conservative commentator Dana Loesch. Maybe that will change after the latest episode of the Piers and Dana Show™, in which Loesch triumphantly declared that Morgan "admitted" the "truth" that he is in favor of completely disarming American citizens. In the umpteenth pointless cable news segment devoted to absurd gun nut talking points, though, Loesch appears to have "admitted" that she, in turn, is in favor of unlimited numbers of children being killed with guns. »

There’s a new show on Jeff Zucker’s work in progress, aka CNN, tonight. Or rather, a 2-year-old show on CNN actually has a new name as of today. “Tonight the show formerly known as Piers Morgan Tonight gets a new name – @PiersMorganLive CNN 9pmET,” tweeted Piers Morgan earlier today. On the ratings-troubled show Monday, Morgan joked that the name was changed because it “was all live, all the time.” The name change was the host and former America’s Got Talent judge’s idea to emphasis the fact that the NY-based interview show is often actually live, a source tells me. Now the show will always be live Monday to Thursdays. Sounding a lot like Larry King Live, which Morgan replaced in January 2011, the name change was first announced late last week. While Morgan may have tweeted the change today, it looks like he hasn’t updated the »

Following what many saw as a preview of what CNN’s mornings might look like with Chris Cuomo and presumptive co-host Erin Burnett, Jeff Zucker’s network-in-progress got more bad ratings news. For the second day in a row, CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight sank to a yearly (2013) low in the prime 25-54 demographic with just 87,000 viewers. Pmt is down 27% in total viewers, according to Nielsen data, and down 38% in the demo from its debut on January 17, 2011. Additionally, last night Pmt had the lowest demo in its time slot, even beaten by sister network Hln’s Dr. Drew with 208,000 viewers in the demo. Morgan’s subjects last night included dysfunctional goings-on in Washington, the papal situation, and a conversation with Gus Searcy, the so-called mentor of Jodi Arias who’s on trial in Phoenix for killing her ex-boyfriend. »

A day after being let go by Fox News, Dick Morris appeared on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight to defend himself -- and his erroneous prediction that Mitt Romney would win November's election by a "landslide." Asked by host Piers Morgan how he was doing on Wednesday night's show, Morris quipped that he was "a little battered and bleeding." Photos: The Most Talked-About TV News Faces Morris famously declared before November's election that the Republican candidate would easily beat President Obama and would carry 325 electoral votes. Romney, of course, lost to Obama (with a finally tally of 332

Update, 6:28 Pm: One day after having his contract not renewed by Fox News Channel, Dick Morris says it was his bad political judgment that got him canned. “I was fired because I was wrong. I was wrong and I was wrong at the top of my lungs,” Morris told CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight Wednesday. On his first appearance on CNN in over a decade, the former Fnc contributor still insisted his opinion that Mitt Romney would win the Presidential election was correct – until Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast. “The real issue is why did Mitt Romney lose? The real answer is the storm,” Morris told Morgan. At the end of the approximately 20-minute interview, Morgan invited Morris to come back anytime. Previously, Feb. 5: Long time contributor Dick Morris will no longer be a talking head on Fox News Channel. “His contract is up and we will not be renewing it, »

Ted Nugent told Piers Morgan he is “full of crap” and “obsessed with guns.” The heated exchange took place Monday on Piers Morgan Tonight and on Tuesday CNN posted a one-minute clip. Apparently, that wasn’t enough for some – Mediaite and Breitbart.com, for example -- so they uploaded longer versions of the segment on their sites. Morgan’s show originated Monday from a Texas gun store, and Morgan showed video of himself shooting the sort of rifle that he says the U.S. government should ban – the one he said was used in the Dark Knight Rises shooting

Joe Jackson has defended hitting his son Michael. The music manager was notoriously tough on his children growing up and was accused by Michael of beating him and his brothers, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon, with a belt of with his hands if they messed up during Jackson 5 rehearsals. The late King of Pop talked candidly about the effect his dad's physical abuse had on him and he accused Joe of destroying his childhood, but the Jackson family patriarch believes his strict rules were responsible for making Michael and his siblings stars. In a frank interview on 'Piers Morgan Tonight', he revealed: 'I'm glad I was tough, because look what I came out with. I came out with »
In the past Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent have admitted to having a “casual” relationship with one another. However, the pair's real reason for pumping the breaks on their romance remained unknown, until now.
During an interview on the Howard Stern Show, 50 recently confirmed that Handler’s comments about him acting like an “eighth grader” before his ex-girlfriend, Ciara's, scheduled appearance on Chandler's E! television show were indeed true.
While appearing on CNN's 'Piers Morgan Tonight', Handler opened up on her feelings towards the rapper-actor.
"We dated, very casually," Handler admitted. "He's a very sweet, nice guy... I was sampling, kind of, the atmosphere, seeing what was out there, and I was satiated."
"He's a great guy... he's the complete antithesis of what you'd imagine. He's a sweetheart, he's great, he's funny, he has a great sense of humor."

Ah, the perils of high expectations! Anyone who’s ever giggled at a gif of Jennifer Lawrence joking around predicted that the two-time Oscar nominee would tear up SNL last night. Unfortunately, the show itself didn’t quite live up to those lofty hopes. Lawrence herself got better and better as the episode progressed, shedding the nervousness that seemed to plague her during her opening monologue. But the material she was given didn’t follow the same arc — especially the weak sketches that followed a curiously shortened Weekend Update.
The show got off to a strong start with a Piers Morgan Tonight »

Charlie Sheen has revealed that he is in favor of stricter gun control. The Anger Management star will appear on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight on Thursday (January 17) to share his views on the recent school shootings. Sheen discussed his former love of collecting vintage weapons and target practice, but is now in favor of tighter gun control in the wake of the recent school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. "If anybody from the NRA wants to look any of those parents in the eyes from that school and tell them that guns are still necessary, then I urge them to, and see how that goes," the actor said in preview footage from his interview. "We're not supposed to bury our children."

The White House today surprised no one by saying it won’t be sending Piers Morgan back to the UK for his opinion on guns — despite a petition that has garnered more than 109,330 signatures. “Americans may disagree on matters of public policy and express those disagreements vigorously, but no one should be punished by the government simply because he or she expressed a view on the Second Amendment — or any other matter of public concern,” wrote Press Secretary Jay Carney today on the White House blog. “President Obama has officially decided I am Not being deported,” wrote Morgan Wednesday on Twitter after the White House posted its response. Late last year, the Piers Morgan Tonight host sparked the wrath of radio host Alex Jones and others with his response to the December 14 Sandy Hook shooting and call for stricter gun control in America.

Alex Jones has claimed that he fears for his life after his recent rant on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight. The radio show host, who classifies himself as a libertarian, appeared as a guest on the interview program to discuss his petition to get Piers Morgan deported from the United States. During a heated debate with Morgan about gun control, Jones said: "The megabanks that control the planet and brag that they've taken over and Bloomberg, AP, Reuters, you name it, brag that they're going to get our guns as well. "They've taken everybody's guns but the Swiss and the American people, and when they get our guns they can have world tyranny." Jones has now taken to YouTube in the wake of the debate to claim that undercover cops are following him, calling New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (more) »
