‘Piers Morgan Uncensored’ Loses 100,000 Viewers
Last night’s concluding part of Piers Morgan’s Donald Trump interview lost 100,000 viewers from Monday’s opener, bringing the total down to 200,000 average across the 8pm hour. The second Talk TV Uncensored show, which aired unedited footage of the former POTUS’ supposed storming off set, was still ahead of rivals BBC News, Sky News and GB News but the gap was narrowed. Trump dealt with topics including trans rights and the supposed rigged election during the interview before Morgan aired several minutes of the unedited footage, blaming an “incompetent” aide and a Trump “simmering with anger” for the storm-off, although the reality was a damp squib. Rupert Murdoch’s Talk TV has launched this week placing Morgan’s show center stage, either side of programs helmed by Tom Newton Dunn, which last night featured UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and Sharon Osbourne. Morgan will tonight interview Tyson Fury, UK boxing champion, who defeated Dillian Whyte over the weekend.
