Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes the return of televangelist Joel Osteen and his wife Victoria, for a face to face interview.
Making a third visit to the program, the senior pastor of Houston's famed Lakewood Church tells host Piers Morgan he understands why political campaigns turn to attack ads, but that doesn't mean he has to like it:
"I would love for it too," says Osteen, when asked if he thinks the strategy should stop. "It seems like for as long as I can remember it's always happened ... from what I hear, the negative seems to work. It's a shame."
A man who leads services seen in more than 100 nations around the world, Osteen wishes candidates would play the political game in a more dignified space:
"I'd love it to stay on a higher level. I don't know if that's practical, but I think it'd be great if it would," says the 49-year-old. "I think things are taken out of context, and you know, amplified, and it's not necessarily, like you said, the full truth."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening, as Osteen shares his views on success, while his wife Victoria reveals the secret to his stunning six-pack and buff beach body.
If you're interested in hearing the Osteen's message in person tickets for "America's Night of Hope" in Miami April 20, 20113 go on sale via their website next month.
