Piers Morgan, the tart-tongued British judge on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ has announced he’s leaving the television competition to focus more on his eponymous nightly talk show.

On Wednesday, he told his 1.5 million Twitter followers, “I’m leaving America’s Got Talent after 6 wonderful years. Turned out that juggling’s harder than it looks, so I’m going to focus on CNN.”

On his CNN program ‘Piers Morgan’ he joked, “Well, members of the Academy, I’m available!”, referencing the Oscar hosting post abruptly left vacant by Eddie Murphy, who quit earlier this week after his scandal-plagued friend Brett Ratner resigned as producer.

Morgan went on to thank his “great friend” Simon Cowell for the ‘AGT’ opportunity and added, “I’ve loved every single second. I’m going to focus on what will be a huge year here at CNN with the upcoming election… And I want to congratulate ['AGT' judges and host] Sharon [Osbourne], Howie [Mandel] and Nick [Cannon], who will doubtless be very relieved to learn they no longer have to work with me.”

In response, Mandel tweeted, “I guess I’m more annoying than I thought. I’ll miss you @piersmorgan.”
