Piers Morgan has a growing list of people he doesn't want on his new show.
The host of CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, which debuted Monday, calls his fellow America's Got Talent judge Howie Mandel irritating, and tells Entertainment Weekly that "he has a chance to redeem himself on Season 6" of the reality competition show. "I don't hold out any hope," he adds.
Morgan also says that Heather Mills, Paul McCartney's ex-wife, has a lifetime ban. He introduced the couple in 1999, and they divorced in 2008. "I realized I'd pushed one of the world's great gold diggers in the direction of one of my heroes," he said.
Also making the blacklist: MSNBC's Keith Olbermann. "It's a temporary ban, designed to confuse and bemuse him, and hopefully engender a violent reaction," Morgan says.
Last month, the CNN host said he wouldn't be interviewing Madonna because she's "too vegan for TV."
Guests who are confirmed for the coming weeks include former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Massachusetts Gov. and presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Kid Rock, Rod Stewart, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, and Donald and Melania Trump.
