'Piers Morgan Tonight' Starts Jan. 17 On CNN

Piers Morgan announced Friday that his new CNN show, "Piers Morgan Tonight," will launch on January 17.

Morgan is replacing Larry King, whose "Larry King Live" ended Thursday night after 25 years. Until Morgan's show begins, CNN will play reruns of King's show, and give Anderson Cooper the 9 PM hour in January until "Piers Morgan Tonight" starts.
