Piers Morgan says CNN show has been 'trial and error'

Wednesday June 1, 2011

Piers Morgan has admitted his US chat show has "all been trial and error thus far".

The former newspaper editor - who took over from talkshow legend Larry King in January - has scored high profile interviews with stars like Charlie Sheen and Oprah Winfrey.

But he acknowledged the programme had its faults, telling the Hollywood Reporter: "I like the errors more than the successes.

"The successes are pleasing for a few seconds and then you move on. It's when things don't work out quite how you thought that are very interesting."

But Piers - who also appears alongside Sharon Osbourne on the judging panel of America's Got Talent - said he didn't mind blowing his own trumpet.

"Everyone in this business is a self-promoter; I just pride myself on being better at it than most of them," he added.
