Ricky Gervais is thrilled at possibly taking over for his good friend Piers Morgan.

NEW YORK CITY - Several news agencies are reporting that CNN is desperate to get back on top of the television network ratings chart.

An unnamed source told TV ClickerWorld's Hoopla Diddy that one of the reasons why Morgan was let go was due to his very strong British accent which made him very hard for most Americans to understand.

The same source noted that altough Ricky Gervais also has a very pronounced British accent, when he drinks beer or tequila the heavy accent goes away and he becomes fairly easy to understand.

Gervais himself has said on more than one occasion that he loves to drink beer and tequila and that it is what gives him his creative edge.

Rick The Slick, as the second lady Jill Biden nicknamed him, said that he learned a lot of tricks of the trade from fellow Brits Simon Cowell, Russell Brand, and Len "The Grouchy Grouch" Goodman.

SIDENOTE: When Piers Morgan was told that he will probably be replaced by fellow Brit Ricky Gervais he reportedly replied, "Bloody, bloomin', blimey, a fellow limey is taking me friggin chair."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
