The low-rated Piers Morgan Live on CNN International will end on 28 March with its last episode.

The low-rated and cancelled Piers Morgan Live (formerly Piers Morgan Tonight) will have its last episode on 28 March, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

After that, four people - Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, Michael Smerconish and Bill Weir - will be seen trying out a TV talk show hour.

Its not clear whether that will be seen on CNN International, or whether the 24-hour TV news channel will replace the timeslot with more relevant content for an international audience.

Next week CNN International viewers will however see Bill Weir in Piers Morgan Live. Piers Morgan is taking a week long vacation before his last week of the show, with Bill Weir who will be sitting in for Piers Morgan.

Last month news broke that the three year old Piers Morgan Live is over. Piers Morgan Live is seen in South Africa at 01:00 - banished to a later and later timeslot on the CNN International schedule since its debut three years ago.
