READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.
As Hillary Clinton was released from the hospital on Wednesday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Kiki McLean to share her reaction to those who questioned the legitimacy of the Secretary of State's condition.
As various members of the Republican Party suggested Clinton was using her health to avoid dealing with controversy surrounding Libya, even going so far as to call her illness the "Benghazi Flu," McLean made no attempt to hide her outrage:
"You know what my really complicated analysis of that is?" the former senior adviser to the Hillary Clinton for President campaign asked guest host Wolf Blitzer. "They're stupid. People who go out and generate rumors and lies are stupid. And they shouldn't be doing so on national television, and they shouldn't be doing so at the real risk of someone else's health. And Hillary Clinton is somebody who recognizes not only the responsibility to the job she has, but her role in public life and that's why they've made sure folks knew what's been going on and for those guys to go out and do that, really, a former ambassador said that? A member of Congress said that? A national journalist?"
Also as part of Wednesday's program, Blitzer switched his focus from political theater to pop culture, inviting a panel of experts to discuss the entertainment world's hottest current topic: the unborn child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Referencing the recently-announced pregnancy of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and referring to the West-Kardashian conception as "America's royal pregnancy," guest Margaret Hoover marked the stark differences between the two couples: FULL POST
On Thursday, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcome Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and "Dan Rather Reports" Host Dan Rather to the program to bring their insight into the next four years on the Hill.
"I think we are going to see a different kind of dynamic with Congress," said Patrick. "The American people have affirmed a politics of conviction and rejected a politics of obstruction. It's very important for everybody in the Congress to understand and I think they do."
Rather, on the other hand, doesn't think President Barack Obama is going to have a successful second term. "The Republican Congress, particularly the leadership, they would rather walk through a furnace in a gasoline suit than do some of the things that President Obama is going to want them to do just as one person, one citizen, election's over, let's get this thing together."
Also on Thursday, Piers Morgan moderated a debate between two men from opposite sides of the argument about legalizing marijuana. Former Obama Drug Policy Adviser Kevin Sabet said legalization of marijuana is a terrible idea. "Legalization is really an extreme answer," FULL POST
Tonight at 9, “Piers Morgan Tonight” welcomes Tim Pawlenty back to the program where the former Governor of Minnesota shares his perspective on the budgetary conundrum looming over Congress. At midnight on December 31, 2012, the Budget Control Act of 2011 will go into effect, triggering the implementation of tax increases and budgetary cuts known as the “fiscal cliff."
“As we try to heal and solve this very big divide, that has resulted in stalemate and polarization, we should have the finesse and sense of grace and timing to solve this in a way where everybody can live in the real world,” said Pawlenty.
Pawlenty advises the media to be patient with Congress as they work to resolve the government’s budgetary issues. “As a member of the media and a commentator, allow people to be in the space where they can actually find common ground and part of this is letting them get to that place without cornering them ahead of time,” Pawlenty asked Piers Morgan.
Watch the clip and tune in tonight as Pawlenty considers Morgan’s proposal to debate the issue on a mountainside cliff.

On Wednesday evening, less than 24 hours after America voted to re-elect Barack Obama for a second term, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Jack Welch for his honest reaction to the result.
A noted Mitt Romney supporter, the business executive and author detailed where he felt the Republican candidate came up short:
"He didn't get it done ... he didn't get the minorities. He didn't get the young women. So he really had an issue with that population and he didn't carry them. He didn't sell the story," concluded the 76-year-old from Massachusetts.
With the election in the books, Welch didn't second-guess the candidate he chose to endorse, but was nonetheless able to give credit where it was warranted:
"I think he's [Romney] a wonderful man, I think he's a great guy, I think he would have been a great president. But it's over and the president's got to be commended for - what a campaign."
As for those that woke up Wednesday on the winning side, Piers Morgan welcomed Beau Biden, who's father will remain in Washington, D.C. for the next four years:
"He played a critically important role in this campaign. The vice presidential debate came at a time where there was a bit of a slide if you looked at some of the polls. And he stopped that," said the Attorney General of Delaware of his dad, the vice president. FULL POST
On Monday evening, just hours prior to the start of the 2012 general election, Newt Gingrich returned for yet another visit to "Piers Morgan Tonight." The former GOP presidential candidate offered up his take on recent polls showing Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in a near dead heat, as the candidates conclude their campaign tours.
Prompted by host Piers Morgan, Gingrich responded to a Twitter post from earlier in the evening, in which "New York Times" statistician Nate Silver declared: "Obama at 91% to win Electoral College based on today's data so far."
"You say this person of the "New York Times" has come to the startling discovery that in the "New York Times" universe, Obama's going to win," said Gingrich. "I point out two of the polls that came out today, Rasmussen has Obama - has Romney up by one. Gallup has Romney up by one."
"The James Carville rule is incumbents get the last poll," continued the former House Speaker, referencing the lead Democratic strategist. "That would mean a 51-48 or 52-48 victory because in both those cases, you had Obama at 48 percent."
Meanwhile, renowned film producer and businessman Harvey Weinstein also joined the program live, voicing his confidence in seeing Obama earn a second term, naming "inconsistencies in Mitt Romney's economic plan" as one of the key reasons. FULL POST
