Thursday: The Romneys Return

On Thursday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes the return of Mitt and Ann Romney, as the Republican Party's presumptive nominee for the 2012 election, and his wife, sit down with Piers Morgan at the Old Royal Naval College in London.

This week's face to face interview marks the former Massachusetts Governor's second appearance on the program, but first in more than a year.

In his previous visit, the 65-year-old Republican shared his perspective on everything from gay marriage to health care, and expect Thursday's discussion to be equally wide-ranging.

Now inside three months until America chooses it's next president, Romney and Morgan will likely discuss a potential vice president candidate, as well as the economy, and foreign policy. FULL POST

Michael Moore speaks out: "I am not going to come on another one of these damn TV shows either, after the next one of these shootings"

Coming up this evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes Academy Award winning filmmaker Michael Moore for his trademark brand of candid commentary, and human perspective.

Joining Piers Morgan for an exclusive interview that comes on the heels of Friday's deadly movie theater shooting in Aurora, CO, the 58-year-old is frustrated by what he views as the selfish nature of Americans:

"We have to see that we're a part of each other, and we have to take care of each other. The reason why they have universal health care in Canada and Britain, these other places? Because they believe if one suffers, everybody suffers," he tells the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "That is not our mentality, our mentality is 'I got mine, you get yours, and the hell with everybody else.'"

A decade since "Bowling for Columbine" – his groundbreaking 2002 documentary film exploring the causes for the massacre at Columbine High School – Moore is disheartened by a lack of progress: FULL POST

Lawyer Alan Dershowitz on the research of author John Lott Jr.: "Junk science…paid for by the National Rifle Association"

On Monday, Piers Morgan welcomed attorney Alan Dershowitz and author John Lott Jr. for a lively and emotional gun control debate that came in the aftermath of Friday's deadly shooting in Aurora, CO.

As the nation mourns the loss of 12 lives, the famed Harvard law professor pressed for stricter firearm legislation, dismissing claims that guns can have a positive impact on society:

“There’s no evidence that I’m aware of that guns protect liberty. There’s no evidence that I’m aware of that guns reduce crime,” bellowed Dershowitz, who openly supports repealing the Second Amendment. “The likelihood that somebody in the family will be killed if there’s a gun in the house is much higher than that the person will use the gun to protect his family.”

Lott, who has held research positions at some of the country’s greatest institutions, fired back: “You’re not a statistician.”

He was interrupted, however, as Dershowitz called his research “junk science…paid for by the National Rifle Association."

Enraged by this accusation, the author of the controversial book “More Guns, Less Violence” implored Dershowitz to revoke his statement: FULL POST
