Earlier, we predicted that Thursday’s installment of “Piers Morgan Tonight” would get a slight ratings bump thanks to having Ricky Gervais on as the guest, fresh off of his “Golden Globes” appearance. As today’s ratings chart shows, that wasn’t quite so.
“PMT” did see a slight jump in the 25-54 demo from the previous show with Condoleeza Rice, but total viewers were actually down slightly.
“You just need to grab someone by the tie and just pop them,” Letterman said.
“Would it work if it was Larry [King]? Or would it seem a bit too cruel, you think?” Morgan quipped.
The appearance comes as day three of the show took an expected dip in the ratings:
‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ Tops ‘Hannity’ in the Demo in Night Two, But Still Sees Drop In Total Viewers
The preliminary ratings for night two of “Piers Morgan Tonight” are in, and it was a mixed bag for CNN.
Not surprisingly, the total viewership was down from its premiere night, drawing 1.273 million total viewers, compared to 2.1 million for the premiere. Premiere episodes and premiere weeks of new shows often see higher viewership totals than where they end up settling.
That said, the program drew 551,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demo, topping both “Hannity” on Fox News and The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC, and improving on its premiere demo numbers by +6%.
