Larry King and Piers Morgan won't be spending the holidays together anytime soon.

King continued his feud with his since-fired British CNN replacement in an interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday, according to the Daily Caller.

"The best definition of mixed emotions: Your mother-in-law goes over the cliff in your new car," the former "Larry King Live" host said. "The mix was I thought they made a mistake in the Piers hire. I thought it was a mistake, one, to hire a Britisher in primetime and, two, I thought that he made himself too much a part of the show."

"Too much 'I,'" said the 80-year-old King. "I always said, if you turn on an interview show on television, 95 percent of the time you should see the guest. If 95 percent of the time you see the host, there's something wrong with that."

Yet the image of Larry King's suspenders remain burned into America's collective brain.

Morgan announced in February he would step from his primetime slot, saying his outsider view of America had proved more polarizing than expected.

I don't see why -- just because people lined up to throw flaming boxes of tea at Morgan's mansion every Fourth of July.

CNN pulled the show about a month later.

After King's Interview, Morgan took to Twitter to show off his English graciousness in a flurry of tweets.

"Hey Larry @kingsthings - you don't need to KEEP bitching about me. It's over. Relax."

"And FYI @kingsthings - there is no such word as "Britisher'. But then research & facts were never your strong point were they, Brooklyner?"

"Always tried to be respectful to @kingsthings - but he's been a constant poisonous twerp towards me for 3 years and I'm bored with it."

He doesn't seem bored. Here's some more:

"As for our respective egos, one of us changed his name legally to 'King' and it wasn't me. So get over yourself @kingsthings."

"Larry King averaged a 176 in the demo in his last year at CNN (2010), and I averaged 218, 170 and 173 in my three years. #RatingsReality."

"Why should I show any respect to @kingsthings any more when he has shown zero to me? Game on, Brooklyner."
