Piers Morgan Quits 'America's Got Talent' to Focus on His Talk Show


Morgan announces he will not return as a judge on the reality show next season, admitting it's hard to juggle with two duties.

It turned out the sixth season of "America's Got Talent" was the last for Piers Morgan. The British journalist has decided to drop his role as a judge on the Simon Cowell-created show in favor of his CNN show "Piers Morgan Tonight".

The 46-year-old made the "big announcement" on the talk show Wednesday, November 9, opening it by offering himself to replace Eddie Murphy as an Oscar host. Saying that he enjoyed "every single second" of his moment on "AGT", the television presenter revealed that he discovered juggling is more difficult that he thought.

Morgan later took it to Twitter to inform his followers about his resignation, writing, "I'm leaving America's Got Talent after 6 wonderful years. Turned out that juggling's harder than it looks, so I'm going to focus on CNN."

"Big thanks to NBC, Fremantle, and of course, my friend Simon Cowell, for giving me such a great opportunity. It's been a blast," he wrote in another tweet before jokingly adding, "And congrats to @MrsSOsbourne @howiemmandel & @NickCannon - you don't have to put up with me any more!"

Morgan joined "AGT" since the first season. He began his gig on CNN in early 2011, replacing Larry King in the coveted 9 P.M. line-up.

The NBC reality show itself has started its audition for the upcoming seventh season in October, but the show will not air until May 2012. There is still no word on who will replace Morgan.
