On Tuesday evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" rolled out it's red carpet, inviting Rick Warren to offer his perspective and context on everything from the "Fiscal Cliff" and same sex marriage, to politics and pop culture.
Welcoming his guest for a live, primetime interview, Piers Morgan asked the American evangelical Christian pastor and author his opinion on the nature of homosexuality:
"Do you personally believe that gay people are born gay? Or, do they become gay? Are they made gay?" wondered the host.
Admitting he doesn't posses all the answers, Warren answered honestly:
Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Tonight" invites Reince Priebus to offer his political analysis and expertise on the country's current budget battle as America moves inside of 35 days until the pending "Fiscal Cliff."
Joining Piers Morgan for his first interview since seeing GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney lose the general election, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee listens, and then reacts, as the host offered his analysis of the party perspective:
"You Republicans, led by Grover Norquist, are absolutely intransigent about allowing any raise in taxation," said Morgan, referencing the founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform, who appeared on the program Monday evening.
"First of all, there's a lot of things that you said there, that aren't true," comes Priebus' response.
"Well name one," challenges Morgan, looking for specifics.
On Monday "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed legendary musician and songwriter Willie Nelson, peppering the 10-time Grammy award winner with questions on everything from pot to politics to proper love.
Currently on his fourth wife, the 79-year-old admitted that he's become a better husband as he's grown older: "You get older, you get wiser." However, he said he's learned "nothing" about marriage. His lessons, he said, have come from his separations: "The reason divorces are so expensive is they're worth it."
Joining Morgan for a primetime exclusive, Nelson proved adept at dodging the host's signature question ("how many times have you been properly in love?")
"I don't think there's anything improper," said the musician who has sang often about "All the girls I've [he's] loved before." "I think love is love is love is love. God is love is love." FULL POST
On Monday, Piers Morgan used his final segment to remember a man who, in his words, "held perhaps a unique position of being loved by millions around the world for being supremely evil."
Referring to the late actor Larry Hagman, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host rolled video of the man in his signature role, that of Texas-based bad guy J.R. Ewing from the iconic television show "Dallas."
"Who else could possibly delivered lines like these," said Morgan, before playing clips of Ewing waxing poetic on revenge ('the single most satisfying feeling in the world,') and offering free marital advice, ('a real man has to learn to keep his tomatoes on top.')
Five months ago Morgan hosted not only Hagman, but also two of his infamous co-stars, Linda Gray and Patrick Duffy, who were both at his side when he passed on Friday. FULL POST
On Monday evening, Grover Norquist joined Piers Morgan to respond to the recent outbreak of GOP detractors to his anti-tax pledge.
"It's little funny to watch a senator or a congressman who got himself elected by promising the citizen of his state that he would go to Washington to reform government, not raises taxes to pay for our problems, deciding that when they haven't done that and the going gets rough that they have an argument with me," said the president of the conservative activist group, Americans for Tax Reform.
Norquist reaffirmed his confidence in the remaining supporters of the pledge noting that, "The good news is that the people who made a commitment to the American voters, to their voters, to their constituents are keeping it, and the focus is where it should be."
Norquist, however, did not mince words when addressing former supporter, Rep. Peter King, accusing the Republican congressman of trying to "weasel" his way out of his commitment to the pledge. "I hope his wife understands that commitments last a little longer than two years or something," quipped Norquist. FULL POST
