Piers Morgan’s brand new show suffers huge ratings dive just one week in

Piers Morgan's new news show Uncensored has suffered a dip in viewers since his explosive interview with former US President Donald Trump.

Since Piers' show debuted on the new channel TalkTV, it has been reported that the average number of viewers tuning in for each episode has dropped by 200,000.

the 57-year-old is heading up the flagship show on the brand new TV channel TalkTV as part of a rumoured £50 million three-year deal.

But in a week since the programme’s launch, the former Good Morning Britain presenter’s viewers have dropped from around 317,000 to an average of 62,000.

The Telegraph reports that TalkTV has suffered an 80% drop in ratings for Morgan’s show since the channel’s launch, despite Uncensored still coming out on top over GB News and Sky News on Monday evening.

In the first episode of the show, the Good Morning Britain presenter's explosive interview with Trump saw the ex-president take shots at Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle among others.

Boasting he predicts “almost everything”, Trump told Piers he reckons Meghan will ditch Prince Harry for “some other guy she likes better”.

Despite the reports of sinking ratings, Morgan tweeted that his show is still beating TalkTV’s competitors when responding to an article by writing: "Piers Morgan’s new show beat BBC News, Sky News & GB News in UK ratings last night – with more viewers than the Guardian has sales.’ Fixed it for you!"

Earlier this morning, he wrote in a message to his followers on Twitter: "Great to see @PiersUncensored got higher ratings than BBC News, Sky News & GB News again in our 8-9pm slot last night. Amazing achievement for a brand new show on a brand new network."

The launch of Piers Morgan Uncensored comes just over a year after the TV presenter shocked the nation by storming off a live broadcast of ITV ’s Good Morning Britain.

The presenter marched out of the studio after a clash with weather presenter Alex Beresford over Meghan and Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Ofcom received more than 41,000 complaints after Piers claimed he “didn't believe” Meghan was telling the truth while discussing her “suicidal” thoughts.

When Alex slammed Piers for his "absolutely diabolical" behaviour, his rival dramatically walked out saying he was "done with this", although he did later return to the live show.

This triggered to a series of events which ended with Piers leaving his role on Good Morning Britain.
