Piers Morgan Wants CNN More Aggressive, Proactive and "Debate-y"

The oldest cable news network in America is also sort of fledgling

|

Piers Morgan, who joined CNN almost two years ago, has some ideas for how the network can pull itself out of the cable news ratings basement. "We should collectively as a network be more aggressive, more provocative, more debate-y," he says. Averaging 576,000 viewers, with 175,000 in the 25-to-54 demo for the month of October, Morgan places third behind his 9 p.m. competitorsSean Hannity (Fox News) and Rachel Maddow (MSNBC) but has the most-watched show on the network, beatingAnderson Cooper's 8 p.m.
