All this week CNN is airing some of Piers Morgan's greatest hits – tonight at 9pmET/PT, watch the emotional, surprising hour with Kelsey Grammer (recently nominated for a Golden Globe for his work in "Boss").
When Morgan asked Grammer whether he is sympathetic to the tea party, the actor answered, "I'm sympathetic to some of the principles, but I'm not sure that the tea party has behavioral problems, other than the ones that can be identified by people who are inimical to them."
The actor pointed out that, like the tea party, he believes "smaller government's a good idea. Always have. I think lower taxes are a good idea. Always have."
Above, watch why Grammer says the "Real Housewives" was a "parting gift" to his ex-wife. Watch the full hour tonight at 9pmET/PT.
