Ricky Gervais on Piers Morgan Tonight
Ricky Gervais heads to the brand new show Piers Morgan Tonight on CNN.
This week’s list of excellent guests for Piers Morgan continues as comic turned controversial Golden Globe Awards show host Ricky Gervais sits down with Piers tonight to talk about the show and what he thinks about all the controversy. It is a big get for Morgan whose show started off strong and has sunk a little in the ratings since its debut Monday. It is still; however, doing about twice as well as Larry King did in the same time slot.
Gervais caused a lot of controversy when he said some very unflattering things about the various celebs in attendance at the Golden Globes Sunday night. There are some who say he was brilliant and hysterical and others think it was mean and uncalled for. The producers of the show admitted that he did go over the line a few times. Ricky Gervais will finally sit down tonight and clear the air, giving his thoughts on how he did and if he would do it differently.
In a teaser clip for tonight’s show we hear Gervais saying that if they didn’t want him they shouldn’t have hired him. Morgan then responds by saying “I said it’s a bit like inviting a hammerhead shark out to dinner and then when he eats all the other guests you start complaining. I mean, you kind of know what you’re going to get.”
Gervais agrees with him and even adds in that he really feels he did nothing wrong and that the people he was attacking had a sense of humor.
Gervais admitted earlier this week that he will likely not be back for next year’s Golden Globes. I have a feeling we might be talking about his hosting gig on this year’s showw until then.
Tune in to Piers Morgan Tonight at 9PM EST on CNN to see the entire show and hear Ricky Gervais’ side of the story.
