by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 2nd 2011 9:00AM
It's been a week of ups and downs for Piers Morgan. First, he mistook late comedian Patrice O'Neal for a woman (for which he has now apologized.)

Then he's observed with obvious glee as his former nemesis, 'Top Gear' host Jeremy Clarkson, has been vilified in the UK for saying on live television that striking workers should be executed.

Now Morgan has called Herman Cain's lawyer, Lin Wood, "shockingly naive." On last night's 'Piers Morgan Tonight' he quizzed Wood about whether, given the number of accusations against him recently, Cain is fit to be President of the United States.

Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, 'Piers Morgan Tonight'The excitement surrounding Simon Cowell's new reality talent show 'The X Factor' is reaching fever pitch ahead of tonight's premiere.

Cowell and Scherzinger were guests on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' and he talked candidly about the reasons for Cole's departure: "I was talking to someone about this at the screening the other night and they put it very well -- she looked a bit bewildered."

Cowell -- who says he feels bad about the very public way in which Cole was fired -- added that "I took the view, along with a few other people, that she would have been more comfortable back in the UK."

He also opened up about his hopes for 'The X Factor' and whether it will take down 'American Idol.'

CNN cancels Eliot Spitzer's 'In the Arena.'CNN has canceled Eliot Spitzer's nightly news show 'In the Arena,' a move that the network announced today in conjunction with additional re-shuffling of their nightly lineup. Spitzer, the former New York governor who resigned in disgrace after being caught in a prostitution scandal, used the show as a vehicle for a mainstream comeback, but it never took hold with viewers and consistently struggled for ratings. CNN had tried to re-tool the program, originally launched as 'Parker Spitzer' in the summer of 2010, but the numbers never picked up, and the network decided to cut their losses and move on.

Spitzer reflected on his brief run at CNN in a statement: "We engaged serious people in conversations about national and global issues in a way that was informative and challenging. I believe that we provided diverse and valuable perspectives during the show's tenure."

The accompanying moves will shift 'Anderson Cooper 360' into Spitzer's 8PM slot. 'AC360' will also replay again at 10PM, its current time. 'The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer,' which had previously aired from 5-7PM, will move to 4-6, with 'John King USA' moving to 6, followed by Erin Burnett's as-yet-unnamed new show at 7PM. 'Piers Morgan Tonight' will remain in the 9PM slot.

Chelsea Handler, 'Piers Morgan Tonight'Chelsea Handler talks a lot about her love of dating "black guys" on her own talk show, so it makes sense that the topic came up when she was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (Weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN). However, she said her relationship with 50 Cent was little more than a fling.

"I was just sampling kind of the atmosphere and seeing what was out there," she said of that time. "And I'm satiated."

It was all fun and games, until Piers Morgan asked her about her picture on the cover of her new book, 'Lies Chelsea Handler Told Me.' "Airbrushed?" he asked of the black-and-white image.

"I realized earlier on, for myself and my daughter, that there was no escape from that name," she explained.

"Changing it, people would just say 'Oh well, you know they were Bin Laden, they changed their name,'" she continued. "I thought it would be much better to explain where we stand, where our true feelings and our values are."

Jane Seymour, who will be covering the wedding for 'Entertainment Tonight,' was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9 PM ET on CNN), where she and Morgan discussed how being a "commoner" is far from being the insult it would seem.

"Everybody loved [Princess] Diana so much, so to have her eldest son marry a commoner, marry one of their kind, Kate, is very, very special," the British-born Seymour explained.

"People in America tend to think the word commoner is sort of insulting, but it's not at all," British citizen Morgan added. "It's actually -- I think people in Britain are really proud that William has chosen as his wife someone who hasn't been born into pageantry or royalty. She's from an ordinary family."

Suddenly she felt a tap on the shoulder. But instead of reprimanding her, the man who got her attention complimented her performance, and asked about her future plans. When she said she wanted to go to New York to pursue a career in theater, he made her a startling offer: $1,000 to help get her relocated there.

Kenneth Feinberg and Piers Morgan Have Testy Exchange Over BP Victim Fund (VIDEO)

Kenneth Feinberg is the government-appointed administrator of the $20 billion BP Deepwater Horizon Disaster Victim Compensation Fund. On the one-year anniversary of the disaster, he spoke on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN) about the difficulty of distributing the money: Only $3.8 billion has so far reached Gulf Coast fisherman and business owners.

Morgan repeatedly pointed out that because many fishermen only conduct business in cash, tit was a struggle to make an evidence-backed claim on lost earnings.

"I don't need the type of documentary evidence that you would get from a big corporation," Feinberg explained. "But I have moral a responsibility to make sure this program isn't simply just come-one, come-all ... Pay me on the basis of a handshake -- I can't do that."
