There are few words in the English language worse than fine. It has such a demoralizing tinge to it, like whoever doled out the adjective wanted to speak their mind, reconsidered and opted for bland. It’s also one of the quickest ways to get a snarky woman to change clothes. Say she looks bad, and she’s liable to keep it on as a bitter statement. Say she looks fine, and nine times out of ten, you’ll get an immediate outfit change. Unfortunately, Piers Morgan can’t change outfits. He is what he is, and apparently, that’s just fine.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Morgan’s predecessor Larry King appeared on Radio 4 and admitted he hadn’t really watch much of Piers Morgan Tonight, but what he saw was “fine”. When asked about why he thought such a steady decline in ratings followed his first few episodes, the aging former talk show host was a little more candid, saying the advertisers said “he was going to be dangerous, he was going to be water-cooler talk, it was 'wait till you see me, I'm different.’”

Larry King is right. People watched in droves to see what he was going to do next. What followed was a very standard interview show. That’s the thing about expectations. Even if something is good, if it fails to meet your lofty hopes, there will always be a negative connotation associated with it. Now even though Piers Morgan really is fine, that's not good enough.

Piers Morgan is an engaging personality and an affable enough interviewer, but if this current slide continues, he won’t be around long enough for people to notice.
