Piers Morgan Gets Solid Sampling

Viewers cannot get enough of overexposed Oprah Winfrey, it seems. 

The debut of the Piers Morgan talker on CNN, featuring Oprah, averaged 2.1 million viewers on Monday, according to Nielsen Media Research data. That is about triple the size of former occupant Larry King.

Shock-jock Howard Stern, who appeared on Piers Morgan last night, is also likely to spike the numbers for the show. But the true test will come once the dust settles.
