Piers Morgan just delivered a hot take for the ages. Despite the latest episode of Succession sparking demand for Sarah Snook and Matthew Macfadyen to score Emmy nominations for their brutal balcony fight scene, Morgan thinks the show is lacking after shockingly killing off Logan Roy only three episodes into the final season.
In an oddly worded tweet, Morgan praised Brian Cox as the show’s “hot sizzling meat” and complained that the hit HBO series is suffering without him.
“Succession without Logan Roy sucks,” Morgan tweeted. “Got to Ep 7 and really struggling to maintain interest. It’s become vegan TV … missing the hot sizzling meat.”

Naturally, Morgan’s tweets was quickly pounced on by Succession fans who have been enjoying the new dynamic that Logan’s absence brings to the final season. With the media mogul gone, Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Roman (Kieran Culkin) and Shiv (Snook) have been forced to fill their father’s shoes, and it’s been a disaster every step of the way.
The three can’t stop betraying each other through self-serving backroom deals, tenuous alliances, and in the case of Kendall, a deep-ceded penchant for self-betrayal. The dramatic tension has been peak Succession, and fans wasted no time calling out Morgan for crying about a lack of “hot meat.”

This is a terrible take – the episode in which they discover he’s dying is literally one of the best episodes of TV I’ve ever seen. And the Shiv/Tom scene from last night was epic. This season has been brilliant. https://t.co/VUlYUmpjyo

The absence of Logan Roy introduces a new and interesting dynamic which forces the main characters to re-evaluate and reinvent themselves now that some of them have what they want.
Breaking Bad didn't become "vegan TV" just cause Gus Fring died, you Muppet https://t.co/Q0jcrkf9m5

It's tough, Piers Morgan trying to craft a "Succession went WOKE" take, but there's an audience for that of exactly one person and it's him. https://t.co/9lzWlkRuOR

Clearly Piers didn't watch the entire episode. #Spoiler The argument at the end is insane writing and emmys should he handed out for that scene alone.#Succession #SuccessionSpoilers https://t.co/fJQfLbalgL
