Piers Morgan may be in the market for a new job.

CNN has announced that his prime-time talk show "Piers Morgan Live" is coming to an end.

Morgan succeeded the legendary Larry King in 2011 following his 25-year run on CNN.

The 48-year-old British journalist's show has been surrounded by dreadful ratings, lackluster reviews and some controversy.

Morgan is the former editor of the U.K. tabloid, The Daily Mirror. He reinvented himself as a TV personality, and appeared as a judge on "Britain's Got Talent" and its U.S. spinoff, NBC's "America's Got Talent," and as a contestant on "Celebrity Appearance."

The date of his last show hasn't been determined. CNN says his future with the channel is also undetermined.

Morgan told The New York Times Sunday that CNN's audience is tired of hearing a Brit weigh in on American cultural issues.
