"I've loved every single second, but discovered that juggling, to my surprise really is a bit more difficult than I thought," Morgan added. Morgan thanked America's Got Talent creator Simon Cowell for the opportunity to work on the show, and he even joked to the Motion Picture Academy that he is now available to host the Oscars.

Do you think Piers would be a good replacement for Eddie Murphy?
