Larry King was back on CNN last night and successor Piers Morgan ended up getting a grilling. The former host, who earlier said he thought Piers Morgan Tonight had been "oversold" with promos billing Morgan as "dangerous," quizzed the Brit about his idea of danger, the Hollywood Reporter notes. "Were you being facetious when you said you were dangerous? Was that an attempt at British humor?" King asked, telling Morgan he had seen him "capable," but nowhere near dangerous. "I'm from Brooklyn," he said. "In Brooklyn, if you say you're dangerous, you better be dangerous." (More CNN stories.)
