Coming up Sunday: Tony Robbins talks to Mark Cuban

Coming up Sunday evening at 9 p.m., peak performance business strategist and best selling author Tony Robbins takes over the reins of "Piers Morgan Tonight." The guest host welcomes entrepreneur and business magnate Mark Cuban to the program for a lively and engaging conversation on what it takes to "Keep American Great."

During the conversation, Cuban revealed his sentiment on the current state of politics in America:

"They both scare the hell out of me," he exclaims. "They really, really do ... A lot of it comes down to the devil I know is better than the devil I don't know."

"I know [Barack] Obama," explains Cuban.

"And I have a sense of what he's going to do. It's like any other ongoing business. I'm not gonna make someone I don't know, who's not being really forthcoming, who's not giving me details, I'm not gonna hire him as a CEO of one of my companies."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in Sunday at 9 p.m. as Robins also welcomes casino boss Steve Wynn and business magnate T. Boone Pickens for a candid conversation on the country, the economy, and corporate responsibility.

    Watched interview with Cuban. What specifics has Obama laid out for the next 4 years? I wish I could watch an interview where the host is objective and asks the guest to think critically. Also, if you want to pay more in taxes, go ahead-don't use deductions and pay your rate? U want to pay 40% of your income-be my guest. I'll believe it when I see it!!

      Monica there are already specific policies trying to get approved by "just block anything" representatives so look at the next interview where the republican talking points were displayed beautifully by another Sheldan Adellson type who does not support America financially due to the way they use the tax system. Would love for us to work together and yes I am in the two percent.

        Next interview did provide a more balanced approach to differing opinions, but I guess what really got to me was when Robbins and Cuban both said that they would be happy to pay higher taxes. Anybody wanting to pay higher taxes should-what is preventing them? Don't wait for congress-just write a check to the IRS. I am glad that you are in the 2% and I realize the work it takes to get there. I am not in the 2%, but I do not feel that you paying more is going to create a single job or bring down debt. I guess we'll have to wait for the debates to see if either candidate has specifics for the next 4 years.

        Well, what the previous poster said makes a lot of sense. If you want to pay more taxes, go ahead and send your money to the Treasury. No one's stopping you. If higher taxes are so great for this country's liberals, then go ahead and send more money to the Treasury. You don't even need Congress to do that.

    It was a pleasure to watch Tony Robbins tonight on Piers Morgan's show. Tony is strong, kind and smart. I think he would make a great replacement for Piers Morgan. I thought Mark Cuban was accurate when he made the statement that Romney doesn't give any specifics because he doesn't. He's a politician speaking out of both sides of his mouth saying nothing in hopes of getting elected.

      I think we'll get more specifics during the three nationally televised debates that are coming up in October.

      Well, Lee. I thought Mark was inaccurate when he said he knows what Obama's plans are. Outside of tax more and spend more, I don't know of any plan he put forth. When he did send a budget to Congress, it failed in the senate 97-0. Nobody on either side liked it so don't blame the block anything republicans. They can easily say the democrats are "block anything" since they will pass nothing that does not include huge tax increases. Obama campainged in 2008 with not much more than "Hope and Change",

    Obama has done nothing in his life. Robins and Cuban have accomplished great things in their lives. Obama is not a commander in chief, he is a campaigner in chief. That is what he is really good at. Now the CNN watchers say Romney isn't giving specifics. What specifics is Obama giving. At least Robins and Cuban admitted that politicians can not directly create jobs.

      You are comparing apples and oranges...

      Running a business is totally a different task than being in office. You own a business – you are basically king and you tell everyone what to do. Cuban said he rather have the devil he knows vs the devil he doesn't know... Those 2 GOP guys can be the best thing or could the worse thing ever... but their track record ain't great in being consistent.

      Plus that Ryan guy likes to lie a lot - from his running time to legislation he passed, and now blames on Obama...

    Tony Robins interviewed – most likely 3 of the smartest business men I have heard. Wow what a difference in America if the men's ideas could be implemented – use our own resources – use our knowledge to improve technology and reward folks with good ideas. Wow...

    First off; probably Top 2 Piers show for me period. Robbins,Cuban, (forgive me if I am wrong) Pickins and Wynn. All breathing the same air. Robbins, love ya. Period. Cuban, you said it best to where this gen of people might understand it.Of course we are better off than we were 4 years ago. PERIOD. Perfect world, heck no. Better, of course. Dem, GOP, and those other folk. Better. Mr Wynn, truly, I respect you. Heck, you own Vegas, my FAVORITE place in the whole wide world, but you scare me with your view. But how can you argue with sucess. Thanh you all for everything. Peace

    I absolutely loved watching Tonny Robbins as the host. The questions he asked really mattered. This is highly positive and educational journalism.

    I try to watch Pierce because of the guest list...but he SUCKS, he is arrogant and his interviews are always with a negative approach. Please it will be wonderfill for Tony Robbins to host this hour. I miss it. I was a pleasure watching him last night he is wonderful. Steve Wynn was right on about President Obama's policy and the current situation of our country. Great Show

      I agree with you Betty, Piers is unwatchable. Tony Robbins is great! Enough of good cop / bad cop politics. Gary Johnson for president!

      I don't give a flying fig about Mitt Romney's tax returns.  If he passed muster with the IRS, he passes muster with me.  We can assume the IRS is fine with his taxes because he's not in prison for tax evasion. The ONLY THING I care about is J-O-B-S and the economy, which are both a mess under Obama's watch.

      "Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes.  Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands."

        jeremy sir, here is the problem. I am not sure your age but I am a 57 yr old male. every movie I ever saw with bogart, cagney and up til today, ANYONE that put money into an off shore account like romney has was because they did not want SOMEONE to know about that money. now for everyday joe that is not a problem, I can understand. but this man is running for the office of the presidency of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. you can believe that romney has a substancial amount in (those) accounts. first off, why not let your money work for you where you are running for presidency. or do you not have faith and belief in our banking system. now, if we do not know what is in those accounts, how can you,the irs, know the true amount to be taxed. you can believe that romney has SOMETHING to hide in his finances. therefore, how can he hold the office and blatantly be untrue about his personal holdings. as mark cuban said. I'D RATHER DEAL WITH THE DEVIL THAT I KNOW RATHER THAN DEAL WITH THE DEVIL I DO NOT KNOW. makes sense to me. peace

  12. Why won't you report fairly

    I notice you won't play Steve Wynn's full video interview with Tony Robbins. Is that because he doesn't favor Obama and is critical of him and his administration and favors Mitt Romney?? I notice your willing to show Mark Cubans interview about Obama because he's favorable. Another example of media bias don't you think?? Be fair and play the entire Steve Wynn video not just a portion.
    What are you afraid of?

  13. Believe In Science More Than Politics

    Hi Piers,

    So interested that you posted something like this. After my beginner/childish experience with Tony Robbins look a likes and wasting my money, I learned alot from them. He and his coaches are extremely business smart. And hello! who I am to talk about them. Please, read this for a good laugh if you decided to not post it that is totally fine with me.

    I do not care anymore if Obama or his other significant gets chosen. But why a person like you brings people like Tony Robbins on his show? That is what I call it a disaster. I am happy to be an American Citizen and I am loving it here, but I am learning that even in America I should believe in science more than politics.

    Have a good one, hopefully one wins the election soon and the battle goes away.

    I see Tony Robbins doesn't ask Wynn about being under investigation under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act like Sheldon Adelson. Gee, maybe that's why he's anti-Obama because we know for sure that Mittman is not going to after any bidnessman.
