Howard Stern on feud with Piers Morgan

“What, is there a feud? I like Piers Morgan. He’s got a lot of pressure on him. He’s gotta get some ratings. Larry King was beating him.

“I was offering him some advice. I said, ‘You can’t have a guests on for a whole hour unless they’re very commanding, like myself and Oprah. He was challenging me, saying he’s the king of all media. I said ‘Never mind being the king of all media, just be king of CNN and get see if you get that going first.'”

Howard Stern vs Piers Morgan

When Howard Stern went on Piers Morgan Tonight two weeks ago, it gave the show a ratings boost and put it into first place among the target news demographic. That was the only time in the show’s short life that it’s topped Fox News in the demo, something for which you think Morgan would be grateful to Stern. But, as it turns out, Morgan thinks it’s the other way around. According to Howard Stern today, the America’s Got Talent judge offered to give Stern a regular gig on his show in order to “save his career.” “I was baffled by this conversation — like he’s doing me a favor because of my miserable career,” Stern said on his radio show. “I have more listeners on Satellite than his 416,000 on CNN!” Stern said. “What the fuck help do I need? My career’s on fire!”

Apparently realizing that he won’t be continuing to get attention by having Stern on the show, Morgan has opted for the backup option: getting attention by having a public fight with the shock jock. “That hairy beast Howard Stern being a very naughty boy. Invite me on your show then, if you think you’re hard enough,” he tweeted this afternoon. “I think the only thing Howard really finds ‘a little bit strange’ about me is that I was clearly smarter than him during our TV interview.”

Howard Stern Calls Jay Leno a “Crook” on Piers Morgan Tonight

In an interview on Piers Morgan Tonight, the shock jock calls the NBC late-night host “insane” and accuses him of stealing sketch ideas.

“Jay is a crook and the world knows exactly what he’s up to. He steals a tremendous amount of material,” The New York Post quoted Stern as saying.”This guy’s ripped off like 10 major things from my show.”

Stern also adds he’s baffled that Leno has beaten fellow late-night host David Letterman in the ratings.

“It’s beyond my comprehension,” Stern says. “America must be filled with morons who at night lay in bed — the ones who are watching him, they must be in a coma.”

Don’t forget to watch the full interview which airs Tuesday at 9/8c on CNN.
