Piers Morgan Live came to an end Friday night and Piers Morgan himself ended the show by thanking the people who helped make the show possible and loyal viewers who stayed on to watch. He said, "We gave it everything we had and I loved every minute. Well, maybe not every minute."

But Morgan went out swinging at the NRA, in a final monologue hitting on the same point he has been hammering from the start of his tenure at CNN: gun laws. Per TVNewser: "I've made my point. I've given it a tremendous whack," said Morgan. "Now it's down to you. It is your country. These are your gun laws. And the senseless slaughter will only end when enough Americans stand together and cry, enough." Morgan ended with: "God bless America, and while I'm at it, God bless Great Britain, too."

Morgan succeeded longtime CNN host Larry King in 2011. Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, Michael Smerconish and Bill Weir will fill in for Morgan during CNN's search for a new host.
