RuPaul beats Piers Morgan: How much longer will he last?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn has enjoyed mocking the Constitution hating, gun control fanatic Piers Morgan over his ever dwindling ratings, and today was no exception.

“Believe it or not, it’s earth shattering, it is strong, and it is serious,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Piers Morgan has been beaten by RuPaul.”

Yes, that’s right, RuPaul’s Drag Race, which airs at 9PM on Logo TV, won the ratings race against CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight on Monday. While Morgan’s audience numbers always pale in comparison to the infinitely more popular Hannity on Fox News and Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, the loss to RuPaul and Logo represents a new low for CNN.

“Couple of things,” Glenn said. “One, I have never heard of Logo TV. Two, who knew RuPaul was still alive?”

After trying to figure out the last time RuPaul was relevant (they settled on the early 1990s), Glenn, Pat, and Stu got back to talking about the real issue at hand – the impending doom of Piers Morgan at CNN.

“On Logo, when [Morgan’s] on CNN and they are up against each other at 9:00 Eastern: 565,000 viewers to 545,000,” Pat said. “That’s a death knell for Piers Morgan.”

Earlier in the week, Glenn talked about how Morgan managed to take Anderson Cooper’s 8PM ET victories over MSNBC and turn them into major losses (by the hundreds of thousands) during the 9PM hour. Given all the recent shakeups at CNN, being creamed in the ratings by a little-known cable network is probably not the best way to keep your job.

“Okay. Let’s have a pool,” Glenn said. “He’s gone within 30 days.”

Pat and Stu weren’t so sure the plug would be pulled on Morgan that fast.

“I say within a year,” Pat said. “They will give it time to see if it marinates.”

“Now see, my thing is, though, you have a new, like, executive regime that comes in,” Stu added. “You’ve got to make the move to the right person. You’re excused for Piers Morgan sucking for a while.”

But Glenn wasn’t convinced. “No. Look, here’s what’s happening with Piers Morgan. Piers Morgan is saying it’s over, I’m going to be a laughing stock,” Glenn said. “And he’s falling on his sword right now and what he’s saying is I’m going to fall on my sword on this gun control thing and that way I can come out and the uber-left will embrace me because I’m going to say, ‘I took on the gun lobby and they were too powerful…’”

Regardless of the timing of Morgan’s impending doom, at least Jeff Zucker knows he has a potential backup.

“Have you seen RuPaul’s show yet,” Glenn asked.

“Seriously,” Stu concluded, “RuPaul could probably pull in some numbers better than Piers.”

    Everybody wants to BEAT Morgan!!!!!!

       Well apparently Jeremy Clarkson host of BBC’s Top Gear actually did punch Piers Morgan. I mean physically put his fist into Morgan’s face. Hats off to Clarkson.

    I do not like RuPaul at all, but he (she) does represent some of the Freedoms Americans have unlike other countries.  RuPaul would be Stoned to Death in many, many countries… (possibly even Piers Morgan would be stoned to death, too).

    • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

      Correct on both counts.

    Piers Morgan has signed his own ending in the media, you can expect he will be offered some kind of position inside the Obama administration.

      Jay Carney’s stand-in/interpreter?

    Meanwhile Alex Jones show is growing in reach. Mike Church is pretty good too.

    • Jim

      I’m a conservative, but Alex Jones is a crackpot. If his show is growing, it’s only because people have learned to use filters to get the 5 minutes of worthwhile entertainment from an hour of gravelly-voiced Jim Jones nonsense.

        To each his own. Glenns radio wastes too much time on mmindless crap. He also attacks other conservative and libertarian minded people. I think a lot of Ron Paul people just did not vote because Beck, Levin and the Repuiblican establishment attacked and dissed not just Ron Paul but his supporters. They poked fun of them and ridiculed them. I think it was enough to tank Romney. Keep it up and you’ll have Hillary for 8 years.

    So Piers Morgan is being beaten by a bunch of drag queens on a channel no one ever heard of. HA HA! So when does Aljazeera buy MSNBC?

    Low numbers because the permissive, progressives can’t stand to watch themselves. They don’t believe it, either.

      Wouldn’t it be a hoot to find out that Piers and Crissy Matthews were lovers?   Just a wild thought…

    Sorry to disagree with you, but Morgan is an excellent interviewer, much better than almost anyone I know on television today.  His position on gun control is extreme but so is the NRA position, especially since over 60% of the NRA membership supports some measure of controlling gun registration for assault weapons.  Any reasonable person would support closing the gun show loophole, yet the NRA fights it on principle.  Morgan has shown strong journalistic skills in interviews with Iran’s president, Charlie Manson, and others.  I think his voice should be saved.  By the way Glen, remember when you were in Morgan’s shoes and railing against the New World Order movement to mostly deaf ears?  You should support what this guy is trying to do even if you don’t agree with his side of the argument.

      CLEARLY you are a cool aide drinker!!  God…Morgan is the LAST person to be preaching to ANYONE!

      You don’t even know what an assult weapon is!! Do you think an AR15 is an assault weapon?

      I propose a gun law.  Don’t take away the guns of all the normal people out there.  However, how about this guy who has kidnapped the 5-year-old?  He was scheduled to appear in court because he shot at three people, including a baby.  Why was he out of jail?  If you’re accused of firing AT people in a dispute, not a self-defense situation, why do you let him out on bail?  Why wouldn’t he be under psychiatric evaluation until trial?  Discharging your weapon aimed in the general direction of others is pretty serious.  I propose we make sure it’s on the books that people like that don’t get out of jail or the sanitarium until they’ve had their day in court, and if found guilty, continue to be confined until it can be proven they are able to fit in again.

    Ship this limey bastard to some other country that buys into his shit.  Who is this asshole to be telling US what to do.  No wonder Britain disowned his ass.

      So, you have no opinion on the subject, right.!?

    Morgan has himself to blame for what’s in store for him. The guy lacks character, Integrity and his dishonest personality will be his downfall. Actually, I take the last part back; He is honest with his opinions and there lays the problem.

  • Tony Krewson

    Morgan probably likes to sit around those elitists NYC cocktail parties and have everyone around him hanging on his every word as he bloviates his crap to make himself look and feel like a big man.  Wudda worm.

    CNN ratings will continue to fall.  They’re aiming for an audience that doesn’t watch news.  The Conservatives are on Blaze and Fox, the lefties are on MsNBC, the fiscal are watching CNBC and Fox Business.  Morgan also is out of his league with the people he invites on.  Did he know Ron Paul was a doctor?  Morgan was clueless as to what he was talking about on conception.

    Don’t count Piers out.  Remember, NBC’s Zucker has just moved to CNN so Piers may be safe despite his ratings, especially if Zucker thinks that he can do what he wants because CNN still has more credibility than NBC or it’s insane child, MSNBC.

    For those of you who are asking what Logo is — it’s an all-gay network.  That’s all they play — shows and movies that feature gay people.  If providers debundled and offered a la carte TV, it wouldn’t even be on the air.

  • Frank Balcer

    Piers, go bugger off.

  • Roderick Bateman

    In the 60’s anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white countries to open their borders to non-white immigrants. Then anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white people to “integrate” or face consequences for being “naziswhowantokill6millionjews.” Now anti-whites are counting down the days until ALL and ONLY white children become minorities and eventually extinct EVERYWHERE. It’s Genocide. “Anti-racist” is a codeword for anti-white.
