Jane Lynch to Joan and Melissa Rivers: "This is a question Piers Morgan asks of all of his guests"

This evening on a very special edition of the program, comedian, actress, and singer Jane Lynch paid a visit to the "Piers Morgan Tonight" studio, flipping the script, and renaming the show in the process.

As Guest Host Week kicked off, the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner unveiled the debut (and grand finale?) edition of "Jane Lynch Tonight," and in doing so set the bar awfully high for her colleagues hosting later this week.

Welcoming iconic comedian Joan Rivers and her daughter Melissa, Lynch proved she's been following along at home, stealing a page directly from Piers Morgan's playbook and delving straight into the topic of "proper love":

"I loved your father, but the great love of my life was the man that I met afterwards," Joan reveals to Melissa. "One leg, war hero from World War II, lost it in World War II. Well, didn't lose it, he left it, but just never went to pick it up."

But after listening to her 78-year-old mother's trademark sarcastic humor, the younger Rivers told a slightly sadder story:

"I don't think so, no, I don't think so," admitted the 44-year-old divorcee. But of loving her ex-husband, she does confess "When we met? Yes. And now, after all these year – we separated when our son was 9 months old – we're actually friends again. Which is great."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Lynch and Joan and Melissa Rivers turn Monday's edition of "Piers Morgan Tonight" into ladies night, dishing on everything from British accents to unfaithful octogenarians.

    I am not American, but I will definitely make a point of buying starbucks today, simply because the principle their CEO is standing for is morally correct..You sustain profit by caring about your customer community, not just in word, but in deed! I will support companies like Estee Lauder and others if they operate on the principle that excessive profit is not everything.
