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.
