Piers Morgan is awesome

Piers Morgan is great and I can't wait for his show to debut on CNN.

In a time when our choice in cable news is crap coming with a huge slant from the right or crap coming with a huge slant from the left, there's just not much out there worth watching. That is, until later this month.

If you aren't familiar with Piers Morgan, you've probably been living under some type of a rock. He's been prominent in American pop culture the past few years as a judge on "America's Got Talent" and also as the winner of season two of "Celebrity Apprentice." Prior to those exploits, however, Morgan was a very respected British newspaper editor and journalist.

Later this month, he'll be taking over Larry King's timeslot on CNN. It's a show I'll watch until I have a reason not to.

Larry King had way, way, way outlived his usefulness on the network, so it's good to see him gone. He hadn't asked a germane question in six years and had the same old and tired guests on all the time and more often than not had worthless guests on.

I've got high hopes for Piers Morgan's unique interview style and believe he'll really be able to get people to open up on the show. Fortunately for those of you who don't know Piers, CNN put out a little taster of him interviewing Anderson Cooper on 1/3.

This is good stuff. If Piers can make every guest looks as human as he made that closet case stiff Anderson Cooper look, then we're in for a real treat.

Incidentally, I also recommend following Piers Morgan on Twitter.
