The Wrap's Dylan Stableford: "Piers Morgan's Softball CNN Debut With Oprah Makes Larry King Look Hardcore"

Written By mista sense on Tuesday, January 18, 2011 | 1:14 PM

"Piers Morgan's Softball CNN Debut With Oprah Makes Larry King Look Hardcore"--that's the tee-hee headline atop Dylan Stableford slicing-and-dicing review of the preme of the Piers Morgan show, "Piers Morgan Tonight."  Of course, it could have just as easily been "Piers Morgan in the Can," bespeaking the fact that the show is taped. Or it could have been "Piers Morgan in the Tank," given that he obsequious nature of his first interview with Oprah Winfrey.   Wow!  Morgan got an interview with Oprah Winfrey!  This is news?  As Stableford put it, Morgan's capacity for puffballing exceeded even Larry King.

The Washington Post's Hank Stuever piled on, too, in a piece caustically headlined, "Not Larry, not 'Live.'"  So what was it?   Not much.
