Donny Deutsch on hosting "Piers Morgan Tonight": "It's a great gig, this is THE chair, and it's really a privilege to be sitting here"

Coming up this evening, Guest Host Week continues on "Piers Morgan Tonight," as television veteran and advertising executive Donny Deutsch brings his wit and wisdom to the program.

Prior to the show's 9 p.m. airing, the former host of CNBC's "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch" took a few minutes to offer his thoughts on the experience:

"At first they asked me to do all five nights. But I said, let's spread the wealth around. I mean Rosie wants to do a gig, Arsenio, so I said we'll spread it around. You know, that's just the kind of guy I am."

With Piers Morgan across the pond in England for the week, Deutsch has designs on turning his fill-in act, into something more permanent:

"He's over there, and we keep rolling, we say 'Piers take another week,'" suggest Deutsch. "And he knows that. He knows that this could happen, but you know, he's that kind of guy."

Watch the clip as Wednesday's guest host shares his thoughts on the CNN studio, and tune in at 9 p.m. EST/PST as Deutsch sits down with Michael J. Fox and Meredith Vieira.
