Piers Morgan has checked in with maybe the worst and certainly the weirdest Succession review of all time as the bloviating British television personality described the recent episodes of the beloved HBO comedy-drama as “vegan TV.”

According to a recent tweet from Morgan, the series without Brian Cox’s Logan Roy “sucks” and that it’s “really struggling to maintain interest” because it’s “missing the hot sizzling meat.”

Succession without Logan Roy sucks. Got to Ep 7 and really struggling to maintain interest. It’s become vegan TV… missing the hot sizzling meat,” the 58-year-old Morgan tweeted.

What makes Morgan’s take about Succession is that the series has always been about — it’s literally in the title — what would happen after Logan Roy is gone. It’s the very premise of the show.

In addition to Cox as the “hot, sizzling meat” that was Logan Roy, the fourth and final season of Succession stars Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun, Alexander Skarsgård, Cherry Jones, Zoe Winters, Hope Davis, Justin Kirk, Stephen Root, J. Smith-Cameron, and more.

At the time of this writing, the next Succession episode scheduled to air is Episode 8, titled “America Decides. That’ll then be followed by the penultimate episode  “Church and State” on May 21.

The series finale of the Emmy-winning Succession, titled “With Open Eyes” and boasting a reported runtime of 90 minutes, will hit HBO and HBO Max on Sunday, May 28 at 9 p.m. EST.

Over the course of its four-season run, Succession has racked up 48 Emmy Award nominations and 13 Emmy wins, including victories in the Outstanding Drama Series category in 2020 and 2022. Season four will likely also rack up a bevy of Emmy nominations, although those may ultimately be undeserved, according to Piers Morgan.
