Mark Kelly on the Sarah Palin crosshairs: "It's not helpful"

Tonight Piers Morgan sits down with Mark Kelly for the hour to talk about his wife, Rep. Gabby Giffords, her recovery, and how she is coping now. In their new book "Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope," Kelly writes about Sarah Palin and the crosshairs she placed on her website, targeting Democratic districts including Giffords. Kelly doesn't agree with the actions Palin took. "Certainly the targets that she put over Gabby’s and other people’s districts, you know, in our opinion, was not the right thing to do."

Kelly notes that Giffords spoke about it before she was shot on January 8, 2011 and she made it clear that it could "ultimately incite people to do violent things." He stresses, "Sarah Palin certainly is not responsible for what happened. But I think the angry rhetoric in an election year is not - it's not helpful." Tune in at 9pm ET for the full, emotional interview.

Clips From Last Night: Meredith Vieira on leaving "Today;" Richard Cohen on building a family while battling Multiple Sclerosis

Meredith Vieira and her husband, journalist and former television producer Richard Cohen, sat down with Piers Morgan last night and discussed why she felt it was time to retire from "Today." Vieira admitted, “it was a decision that I did not come to lightly” because she felt like she was leaving her "family." After a year of consideration, Vieira made her decision to leave the show explaining that “I finally realized that the best thing I could do for myself and my family was to get off of that treadmill and breathe a little bit and enjoy life while we have our health.”

Cohen commented on Vieira’s incredible support and their teamwork to manage his Multiple Sclerosis.

Said Cohen: “Meredith bought into this a long time ago. We built a family. We built a life. And we weren't afraid of the future… And I think we're proud of what we've put together.”

William Shatner's Priceline gamble: 'The stock went up, and then it was worth pennies'

Legendary actor William Shatner is a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening, and he talks about his career, his childhood and more.

"And then, the dotcom bubble. And we all still couldn't get rid of our stock...it was worth pennies."
