CNN president Jeff Zucker has pulled the plug on British host Piers Morgan's TV show after its ratings plunge, ending the former tabloid editor's three year run on U.S. television, according to AFP.



The site reports Morgan, who irked U.S. gun owners after launching a crusade for greater gun control, struggled after stepping into the shoes of popular, down-to-earth host Larry King in the coveted 9:00 p.m. primetime slot.

"CNN confirms that 'Piers Morgan Live' is ending," CNN vice president of communications Barbara Levin told AFP. "The date of the final program is still to be determined."
