Piers Morgan's New Show Is Sure To Spark Controversy

If nothing else, Piers Morgan can always be counted on to do one thing: create controversy. It's his whole shtick. Even the way he left his last television hosting job on "Good Morning Britain" was contentious. After the network said it received over 40,000 complaints about his negative comments about Meghan Markle, according to BBC, ITV released a statement saying, "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain. ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add." So, whether he was fired or resigned on his own is really just a matter of semantics. 

But you just can't keep a good controversy-monger down (or off TV) for very long. It looks like the polarizing British commentator is gearing up to debut his all new show, which, by the title alone, already promises to bring Morgan's signature brand of unpopular opinion, according to Yahoo!. We can almost see the outraged social media takes already.

Piers Morgan is 'Uncensored'

On March 9, Piers Morgan announced his new show, "Uncensored," on his Twitter account, writing, "Trigger warning: I'm back.. and I'm uncensored." But while it's debatable if Morgan was ever that censored to begin with, the anchor surely seems to be confident with this angle.

Morgan's tweet also included a teaser clip, which is already generating controversy, and the show hasn't even started yet. The clip begins with Morgan watching the infamous video of himself storming off the set of "Good Morning Britain." "A year ago today, I was forced to leave a job that I loved, at the peak of its success, for having the audacity to express an honestly-held opinion," he said, adding that "this shouldn't happen in any democracy supposedly built on the principles of free speech." This is why, according to Morgan, he now has a new show that promises to "cancel the cancel culture," break the "taboo" against fun, and "annoy all the right people." At least regarding that last one — mission accomplished?

While Morgan's announcement got plenty of support from his fans, other social media users questioned just how "canceled" he can be if he has his own show. "Pretty strange to keep claiming cancel culture is a thing when being given the keys to a TV show with your name on it," one person tweeted. Noted another, "Piers chose to leave a tv show and now has another tv show to talk about people being cancelled from tv shows."
