Larry King appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight ready to tackle the controversy that erupted after the legendary CNN host questioned Morgan's use of the word "dangerous" in show promos ... admitting the British host may have "oversold" himself.
During the CNN interview, King asked Morgan:
- "Were you being facetious when you said you were dangerous? Was that an attempt at British humor?"
Morgan then asked King whether he has watched any of his shows. King relied:
- "About eight. I haven't seen you dangerous yet. I said you're capable."
When explaining what he meant in the promo by using the word "dangerous," Morgan added:
- "We couldn't come in and undersell. I'm following a legend. You can't follow Sinatra in Vegas and say, 'By the way, I'm not very good, and this is going to be useless.'"
Later in the interview, Morgan admitted to King, "I was only kidding. British humor."
Find out what King calls "dangerous" ... after the jump.
King told Morgan: "I'm from Brooklyn. In Brooklyn, if you say you're dangerous, you better be dangerous." You go, Larry!
