Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes a host of returning guests, each dedicated to advancing a particular story that falls under their realm of expertise.
As Ariel Castro awaits his permanent prison, the home where he held three women captive is being reduced to rubble, perhaps a metaphor for the crushing destruction he inflicted on Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry, and Michelle Knight.
Having covered the case in Cleveland for years, and growing close during that time with the DeJesus family, WOIO news reporter Lydia Esparra will rejoin Piers Morgan with her detailed insight and perspective.
In advance of his upcoming CNN special entitled "Weed," this evening Dr. Sanjay Gupta joins the program as part of a discussion on medical marijuana and the legalization of cannabis.
Joining Gupta and Morgan, Dr. Howard Samuels will share his pot perspective, which comes on the backdrop of his years as an addict, and his time spent creating and founding "The Hills Treatment Center" in Los Angeles, Calif.
With the New York City mayoral election less than three months away, tonight Christine Quinn returns to "Piers Morgan Live," and she does so holding top position in the latest poll. On the heels of race turbulence resulting from Anthony Weiner's latest gaffee, the City Council Speaker will be joined by famed women's right activist Sandra Fluke, who has recently announced her endorsement of Quinn.
Proud to be back in New York this morning to endorse @Quinn4NY to be NY's 1st woman mayor!

And, less than a week since his most-recent "Piers Morgan Live" appearance, on Wednesday animal expert Jeff Corwin will be back on the primetime show, only this time under significantly sadder circumstances.
The host of Animal Planet's "The Jeff Corwin Experience" and "Corwin's Quest," this evening's visit comes on the heels of the recent death of Noah and Connor Barthe, two young Canadian brothers who are believed to have been killed by a 100-pound African rock python.
