READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
In this first clip from the Oprah Winfrey "Piers Morgan Tonight' interview, Piers Morgan asks "what advice would you give Michael Vick?"
Oprah didn't want to answer – because she's saving her thoughts for when she interviews the NFL Comeback Player of the year. But Piers is trying to book Vick too. And then a bet was hatched.
After initially passing up a £100 bet, Oprah upped the stakes to £200 (which roughly translates to $317). After a handshake, the bet was on. "The way I live my life is, if it's supposed to happen, it will happen. And if Michael Vick choses to sit with you as his first interview and not sit with e then that's the way it's supposed to be," said Oprah, before adding: "But don't call me later, Mike."
The full interview airs Monday, January 17 at 9pmET/PT (and internationally).
I have watched Piers Morgan over the last few days. Please accept this input and pass on my advice. The man is not appropriate for this job and certainly will not equal Larry. His questions are innane and his color commentary is largely offensive. Too bad as the vacuum is as large as John Carsons. Regardless this guy with his British accent and weird ways is a looser. Help him out by passing on this message. I certainly will not be tuning in.
Yes, let's make the poster child for animal abuse, illegal gambling and whatever else he was into, a Great American Hero. What a wonderful role model for children......I would just chomp at the bit to have him speak to my kids. Unfortunately this is one thing dreadfully wrong with the US today: anyone with the money can erase all the bad things they have done and come out smelling like a rose. I am so disgusted and it shows me yet again what Oprah and now Piers, is all about.
Who really cares. I am no where near interested in hearing anything that cruel man has to say. Perhaps they should be interviewing someone who has done great for this world and is not a heartless killer.
I'm disgusted that reputable TV personalities (ha) are talking about Vick like he's a desirable commodity. He's a monster.
This is front page news? Seriously? CNN is going WAY downhill.
Who in the world is Piers Morgan?
Tammi Griffin / I am sorry I missed this. I would love to hear Trace talk otpilics. After reading his book I know our otpilics are similar and it's nice to hear it come from a superstar. think Hollywood will ever get it?Trace you are a true Patriot. God Bless you and your family.
It's outrageous that either one of these full-of-themselves individuals would give that rotten monster Vick the benefit of appearing on a show. The only show Vick should be allowed to appear on is a to-the-death gladitorial-type contest. I'd pay to watch that.
This is pretty sad – making a bet on who can make a sadistic moron a bigger hero? If Larry King was still around and Vick wanted to be on the show, Larry would have said – "wait your turn – I'll get around to you sometime – maybe". I guess the 'void' has to be filled somehow – and they know that people will forget – but not as long as I'm here. RJ
I would put in a total of six piers, three on each 12 run. Then I would build the beam from two 2 8 and use 2 8 joist at 16 OC attaching the joist to the beams using joist heangrs. Depending on how high this is above the ground (and if money is no issue) I would use all pressure treated for the frame. If money is an issue use regular framing lumber and maybe put on a clear oil based preservative. Some have mentioned using 2 6 for the frame. Without knowing where you are located, the species of your local framing lumber, the grade of the lumber and what you are actually putting in the shed, I would stick with 2 8 framing.
16a134351b7What i do not understood is acluatly how you are not acluatly much more well-liked than you may be right now. You are so intelligent. You realize thus significantly on the subject of this matter, made me for my part believe it from numerous varied angles. Its like women and men aren't interested except it is something to do with Woman gaga! Your own stuffs great. Always handle it up! 18d
Why...why would either want Vick on their show? good night, this isn't about some athlete who fell into drug use after dabbling in them or wound up with some woman in some affair or even a domestic violence episode but rather, he's a man who had more money than he could have ever spent and what did he choose to do with his spare time? fight and torture dogs. That's just sick. Now, I understand he's done his time and paid for his crime but that doesn't change who he is
I so agree.
Will not waste my time watching him.
One question: Why is Piers Morgan laughing out loud like that?? I must have missed something but that burst, I don't get it...and yes she can afford that, didn't need to remind her!!!smh
I think both Piers Morgan and Oprah Winfrey should be ashamed of themselves for even considering having Michael Vick on their shows. To give a man that so cruelly tortured all of those dogs the airtime is deplorable. If he was anyone else, he'd be in jail, and neither would be looking to interview him. Shame on you both.
Whomever books this sociopath, Vick, will earn my lifelong boycott and that of my friends. I guarantee it.
Can't wait to see Piers in action, with all the blunt answers and self-opinionated analysis. Talk show TV is about to undergo huge transformation. He reminds me of Alan Shore on Boston Legal/The Practice.
theres typo in this paragraph, very pofessional
Seriously? This is the lead story???
Ok let me crank it down a notch – it is pretty sad when Morgan and Winfrey have to fight over the spoils of Larry KIng when Larry would have made Vick just wait in line with everybody else in the world who actually 'wanted' to be on his show.
Oprah: would you be kind and humanitarian enough to donate at least 1/50 of your exceeding wealth (billions) to help out in Haiti or in other parts of the world that really need it? not saying you should give a lot of money, just a bit. Man, if I had your wealth I would give half or more to help out millions of kids who really need help, would I be left poor if I were to donate half??..............
Wow! They are fighting over a dog murder/torturer/mutilator? Oh he paid his dues you say? Bull! If anyone that was not a celebrity did what Vick did, they would be working in construction or something minimum wage the rest of your life. Try explaining those felonies to a future employer.
I can't believe that this is front page news. I'm never coming to this site again.
You're annoying Piers!! I don't even know who you are and I really don't get how you're saying that everything about Madonna is annoying. I hope you're not in the news cycles all the time.
Who cares what Ompha Think's or about Mickie Vick!!
I used to watch Oprah amny years ago, when her shows were focused on social problems of the time & possible solutions. Things that mattered. She has looooong since left that track & I quit watching her. Her programs became more & more political,... leaning more & more to the left. Now she wants to be the first to do an interview with a very sick indvidual (Vic), going against everything she stood for long ago. All for the sake of ratings. & we wonder why this country is going down the toilet.....
Anyone who thinks that Michael Vick has paid his debt and is a reformed individual needs to take a little walk down memory lane and remind themselves just what this so-called man was engaged in and willfully perpetrated.
I hope they both read "The Lost Dogs" before they interview Vick.
Why would anyone even want to hear what Vick has to say....he's said it all.....nothing he says will ever change his violent, cowardly acts towards these poor dogs.....And for Oprah to even consider interviewing him is truly unbelievable....it was bad enough with the Octomom...I thought that was an all-time low for her, but now a DOG KILLER? Oprah....what the heck are you thinking? You surely are going out with a bang, Oprah....
All the more reason to NOT watch either show.
I have to say, first impression, Piers Morgan is 500% more interesting than Larry King at his height! Larry, I could not watch. Piers Morgan, yes! He's not afraid to ask edgy questions and questions that most other interviewers ask. I hope he has a long career.
Who will book him first?
my guess this the Pennsylvania state penitentiary
I don't appreciate the Piers advertisement stuck on my computer screen DESPITE the fact that I clicked closed about 10 times. I come to the CNN website to get pretty much unbiased news NOT a pitch for your programming. Can you get over yourselves please and stop reminding me that you think Piers is the second coming of Christ.....or Oprah at least. He's NOT and I don't care about his show!
Who cares about Vick? I certainly do not. to ask him anything is a waste of breath
But then Oprah and this other fool are in the business of getting people riled up.
They are not journalist nor are the Edward R Morrow.
I am new to this program.its informative expect more comments from
ENOUGH WITH OPRHA ALREADY! WHEN SHE CAN WALK ON WATER THEN I WILL BE IMPRESSED! I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING HER ON TV.
I haven't watched Pierce Morgan yet however he is no Larry King.Larry would insult people the way Pierce does.Who does he think he is banning Madonna and Heather Mills or anyone else.Can't we make that decision to watch or not.He doesn't like Americans he is a true Brit and absolutely NOT a good replacement for Larry. Larry was a true interviewer who listened to his "guests".Believe me the ratings are going to drop FAST! Who wants to come on the program and be insulted and not listened to and have a "host" who is so into himself.Like I said I haven't watched yet but what I've seen and heard I do not care for Pierce.He's a bragger.Larry was never that way.He was so real.Shame on CNN there are more suitable replacements. You'll see.
I think this Piers Morgan show you are launching will be remembered as one of CNN's worst failures!
Why would anyone want to interview Mike Vic after he abused all those animals? I can't even look at the ads on television that want our donations because it makes me cringe to see abused animals!it kills me to see animals hurting!
Common guys!! Do not make such a deal about it this guy already has a huge head, no need to make it any bigger..
Another pompous limey..
Whose bright idea was that completely irritating expanding add on the CNN homepage today?!? I have heard all from and about Oprah that I ever care to hear (much more than enough), so will I be watching tonight –NO. I also have no interest in some stupid bet about who gets to interview Michael Vick –pure ugh!
Yeah well, woo hoo CNN won't be watching this clown. He just got on the air and announced he hates Madonna, so I guess CNN can write-off most of the age 30-55 viewers. Not that this obviously self-absorbed British idiot interested us anyway.
Dear Mr. Piers Morgan:
In case i miss 'Piers Morgan' premier CNN live interview tonight with the equally legendary broadcaster, Ms. Winfrey Oprah, the question i would want Mr Piers Morgan to ask her guest is what is the 'News Editorial' direction of OWN, her new cable channel?
Right now I don't think it has any direction. If Oprah is all about "love" this station doesn't have much at all. It's a bore.
Piers, you did a great job!! You are perfect...smart but sweet with a touch of vulnerability. And love your generous, real smile. Wish you were still single...yep, you're hot! Kristina
NEVERTHELESS, THE CIVIL LAW is and must be neutral about who has a more noble or rdneraiwg faith. The breakaway parishes ought to win every facet of the lawsuit not because their beliefs or their politics are better, but because both lawand equity, along with common sense, are on their side. Not only does Virginia state law (the Division Statute)explicitly apply to just such a situation as now exists, but the history especially of The Falls Church argues against the claims of the Virginia Diocese with which theyhave disassociated.First, The Falls Church was founded, formed, and developed long before the diocese, or the national Episcopal Church, even existed.
Just finished watching the Oprah interview. Bravo, Piers!
Betting with so much money ... 200 000 £
Here in africa is Shame ... They can clean their botton with that papers !!!!
I loved Larry King and his stye. Your style is different – one on one, journalistically (is that a word?) prepared, jarring yet soft to your interviewees. Very disarming, yet smart, riveting and compelling. Looking forward to your season to determine whether I am a true fan.
Thank you,I shot Thank you,I shot this in Winter time a couple of nuedrhd metres above my home in the Pennines, UK. It is a really beautiful and relaxing place.May you be well,Piers
The Oprah interview was awesome!!!
How to get storage shed off the ourgnd?I live in a mobile home park. Every house has a storage shed that was built sitting directly on the dirt when the home was installed. The shed is about 8 10, made of wood whatever that siding is that they put on new mobile homes. Since it is sitting on the dirt, it seems to me that it will begin to decay and also will get termites (in fact, it has them already). I wish it could have been built on a concrete slab, but the park does not allow that. So I was thinking it would be good to raise it up on bricks around the exterior wall, at least, so it is not sitting on the dirt.But how to go about that? The thing ways a near infinite amount, as far as I can tell (though it has no foundation below the dirt), and there is no way to slide something like a jack under one side unless I dug a hole under the side. So how to raise it? Or is it a bad idea?And is there something I can put for termites in the boards touching the dirt short of having it tented? The floor is plywood.
You were refreshing, addictive and entertaining. I cannot wait for the next interview. Piers you have a great future ahead. You have a way of relaxing your guest and drawing out another side of them, in a great way. I cannot wait to watch more and more of your interviews and I have not been this excited about any show in a very long time. You are a breath of fresh air! Thank you.
I am so happy to see you doing a show like this one.. I loved you on AGT. but this seems to suit you better. Good luck on your show and future endevors.
Opera is good, she's really good....
I want to know if this interview will come back another time because I liked it, but I missed the first part. Thank you! :)
Hi Christine, I missed it, too! Any news, where we can watch the first tonight with Piers Morgan???
For Oprah to even acknowledge male tmvciis is a huge step in the right direction. But no, I didn't see it. Even so, I'm glad she did it, just as I was glad when Tyra Banks did an episode on male tmvciis of domestic violence and even had some of the female batterers on the show. She wasn't nice or sympathetic to the women who abused their men, either, which was a real surprise.
I really thought this first interview was mediocre. It's hard to interview an interviewer.
Carol, I personally found her to be very open. For someone who has worked so hard for what she has and been through so much, I find her to just be an amazing woman. Your comments are posted with no grounds as to why you are posting. If you are going to leave a comment at least leave a supporting statement.
It's a shame how The Grio, "the first video-centric news community site devoted to providing African Americans with stories and perspectives that appeal to them but are underrepresented in existing national news outlets", didn't even list Oprah amongst their 2011's top 25 most influential Black Leaders. She deserves noted recognition.
Oprah was a great first guest. I think when a person is interviewed at the mid-end of their careers they are much more real. Great job!!
Grateful that I have had a second chance to view this delightful, lovable, amazing, awesome, reverend, humbling, sometimes tearful/happy, tearful/sad, mindblowing segment. Makes me wish that this could have been a whole week of repeats of this your first CNN tonight segment. I can't imagine that anything no matter who you might interview could top such a captivating, riveting, interesting conversation. Thank you and good luck!
I dont get this show or the reason behind it... let alone the whole issue behind wanting to talk to M Vick
Jealous are we. Some people care. As a side note I love the show and find it engaging to listen to even on the radio!
Please Piers Morgan, you have to slow down and listen to your visitors. You interrupt all the time, and don't give your visitot change to speak. Learn from Larry King !!! We want to listen to the visitor, not to you !!!
One of Oprah's most personal interviews yet. Loved it.
I finally caught a rerun of your first show when you interviewed Oprah. I thought that you did a pretty good job but that you were far too deferential to her. While some folks consider her the the most powerful woman in the world, I think that she has started to believe some of the accolades afforded her. I used to love Oprah, but the things she said about showing people "the way," sounded like she was a self-appointed prophet.
Also her routine about the huge amount of taxes really offended me. She pays a lot in taxes because she makes a huge amount of money. I knew a man who was very wealthy, NOT Oprah wealthy, who said that he was happy that he paid high taxes because that meant he was making a lot of money.
I think that you should have called her on some of her arrogance.
Thanks for listening
I am amazed each and every day how religious morons are so comfortable justifying stupid behavior to Satanic influence. In order to justify demonic/satanic possession, one must acknowledge the imperfection of the Creator. The thought that "God" would create something that is so incredibly flawed (humans and Satan) and then not have the slightest control over its behavior is absurd.
“I created everything that is, but could you (catholics, jews, white supremest, moslems) fix (fill in the blank). Really?
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, but I kinda drop the ball on (fill in the blank) so would you take care of that …” Really? Either you believe in “God” or you Believe in the church, you can’t do both.
On your show with Donald Trump yesterday, the basic question is how do you define patriotism in america? do you have the self motivation to use domestically produced goods and services
being 70% made up of immigrants – has an ambiguous feeling about this
OPRAH 1 – PEIRS NILL , She got Vick to do the interview . That's $100 Big Ones to Oprah's Charity Peirs .
Piers made a great comment. He likes unusual people like Susan Boyle ... I would like to see them together. I think they would be good together. Go for it Piers.
How to fix rotting Wooden Garden Shed?I have one of those pmdraee wooden Garden Sheds that people buy pre-constructed and move into their yard. Mine is the type that looks like a mini barn, with barn-style doors and gambrel roof. The side panels are made of partcleboard and they have begun to rot and disintegrate from the bottom (ground) up. The previous owners probably should've put the shed on something, but it sits right on the ground. If I can repair the shed, I will probably have a concrete foundation poured for it. I need to know if anyone's ever tried to repair / rebuild one of these sheds and how hard it is and whether it's worth it? New ones cost a few thousand dollars and I can't afford to replace, but since the frame and roof are in such good shape, I'd really like to repair before it gets worse. Do you have any suggestions on how to do this? Books? Website sources?Thanks for your help!This shed is not made of a frame that has siding over it. It is actually panels of 4 by 8 foot plywood that are inside the frame and outside trim. I am concerned as to whether the shed will collapse if I attempt to remove the plywood panels, since they seem like they are adding strength and stability to the structure. How would I take it apart down to the frame and keep it from collapsing / sagging? Thanks!
I've learn some excellent stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how a lot attempt you put to make this kind of fantastic informative web site.
