*Larry King will be a guest on his old show, hosted by Piers Morgan. Yes, the interviewer of interviewers is going to be put on the hot seat Wednesday night, Feb. 23.
The years long professional CNN journalist finally called it quits, but it may cause a little tension when he’s a guest on the now “Piers Morgan Tonight” show. After the King left, ratings took a dive, but it wasn’t his fault, he said.
King admitted that “he’s good – but he’s not that dangerous” he also commented how his replacement is “oversold.” Now that’s going to be something the retiree may have to explain.
“I can’t think of many people I’d rather interview than Larry King and I’m sure people will be fascinated by the dynamic between us, for obvious reasons.”
In other Larry King News … the veteran TV interviewer, who left his “Larry King Live” CNN show after 25 years in December, is launching a series of one man comedy shows in April about his life and work called “Larry King: Standing Up,” producers said on Tuesday.
King, 77, will give fans “a hilarious and insightful look” at his life both behind and in front of the cameras, reports Reuters. The one-night-only shows will cover his life growing up as a street-smart kid in Brooklyn to tales from his career as the man who interviewed presidents, generals and celebrities.
“Larry King’s style and wit will give audiences an evening to remember,” producers Base Entertainment and Karl Engemann said in a statement.
