Anthony Bourdain To Host Piers Morgan With A Bevy Of Culinary Guests

We know; you’re still bitter about missing your Friday night dose of Rachel Maddow yesterday because Melissa Harris-Perry and Alex Wagner were filling in at the desk. To hell with guest-hosting, you might have thought to yourself. Ah, but wait.

Over on CNN, there’s a significantly more exciting guest arrangement in the works. Piers Morgan is inviting guest hosts for the entire week of July 22nd to anchor his show in the 9pm hour, and none other than our very own Anthony Bourdain snagged the Thursday night show!

According to the CNN blurb:

“Top chef, foodie bad boy and host of the four Primetime Emmy nominated “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown,” Anthony Bourdain stirs things up with our live studio audience as guest host Thursday evening. Cronuts, orange Crocs and Michelin Stars unite as Dominique Ansel, Mario Batali and Eric Ripert join Bourdain in the studio.”

Bourdain tweeted in addition:

We’d like to thank the cable news gods for karmically rewarding us after our tragic Maddow drought last night.

Tune into Piers Morgan Live on Thursday at 9pm on CNN to catch Bourdain and the gang.
