Piers Morgan responded to Larry King on Twitter Friday regarding comments his CNN predecessor made about him and the demise of "Piers Morgan Live."
Speaking with WGRF radio station on Wednesday, King called Morgan's interview style "pompous" and speculated that this was what led to the show's troubling ratings. Morgan took over King's 9 p.m. time slot in 2011, and King said that Morgan did not transition well into the role.
Morgan responded ... a lot ... on Friday, calling King a "graceless, petty little man":
I kept 9pm ratings at CNN where @kingsthings left them. Which given the way HIS ratings had collapsed in his last few years was a miracle.
Anyway, I suspect only me and Larry King give a monkey's cuss which we think of each other - so now that's off my chest, I'll move on.
The two have gone back and forth for quite some time now, both taking digs at the other one's success -- or failure -- at CNN. Morgan went on another rant about King in May. Hopefully, this time, we really can move on.
