The Four Reasons You Must Watch "Piers Morgan Live," Tonight

Coming up this tonight at 9, Piers Morgan will host a show dedicated to everything from movies to marijuana, from Brits to bears.

In advance of this evening's airing, here's a brief rundown of the stories the program is set to cover, and why missing such an episode would be a bad idea:

1. The Butler did it

On the heels of a monstrous $25 million opening weekend by Lee Daniels' The Butler, this evening Piers Morgan welcomes Daniels, the film's director, as well as actor Cuba Gooding Jr. and screenwriter and actor Danny Strong.

2. Royal Flush

After conducting the first official interview with Prince William following the birth of Prince George of Cambridge, tonight CNN's Max Foster joins his countryman to dish the dirt on diapers and more. With George still three days shy of one month old, William tells Foster he's already a "bit of a rascal." Tune to CNN this evening as Foster fills Morgan in on everything from William's deft mastery of the car seat, to the adjustments being made by the entire family, including Lupo, the Royal Cocker Spaniel.

3. Grin and Bear it

Just days after surviving a terrifying attack at the paws of a black bear, on Monday evening Abby Wetherell will relive the encounter on "Piers Morgan Live." A 12-year-old seventh grader in Michigan, Wetherell came face to fury face with the bear while jogging along her grandfather's property, and joined by her family this evening, she'll share details of the tussle that left her with deep gashes in her thigh, but remarkably, still alive.

4. No Pot Luck

Two-year-old Vivian Wilson suffers from Dravet Syndrome, a condition which causes her potentially life-threatening seizures. Medical marijuana might be able to help, but in New Jersey – where the Wilson's live – the particular strand Vivian needs isn't available. Tonight her parents, Brian and Meghan Wilson, will talk with Piers Morgan from their home, sharing details of pleading with Governor Chris Christie for help.

For all of the above stories and commentary from The Daily Beast's Tina Brown, join Piers Morgan tonight at 9.

    Went to see "The Butler". I weep thru most of it. In 1960 I lived near Washington where my Dad taught at AU, The first day of class in newly integrated Rockville MD,, I went to sit with some of the girls in the cafeteria because I had seen them playing basketball and I had been on the team in Brooklyn. Some of the white girls pulled me over and told me " "they" were slaves for their grandaddies and never would they sit next to "them". Missed the inaguation of JFK because the roads were blocked by snow, worked at a Woolworth's in Brooklyn when the incident occurred down South. My parents refused to let me go on the Freedom bus ( I was 17). My brother shipped out to VietNam, and I went to college CCNY and was studying for an exam when passing 155St on my bike, the police were coming in for the assassination of Malcolm.
    The film brilliantly illustrated ( thru some words of MLK) that what seem like diametrically opposite points of view and actions, can lead to the same results.
    We have come far, but not far enough.
    Forrest Whittaker is totally brilliant. Oprah amazing and the rest of the cast outstanding.
