Tonight: Dan Rather, Ben Shapiro, and the family of the recently emerged Brenda Heist

This evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" will welcome legendary journalist Dan Rather for another live, primetime interview.

A frequent visitor to the New York studio, the seven-time Peabody Award winner is a broadcasting icon, and a master of rhetoric, in the past uttering such phrases as "making his fingernails sweat" and "the smell of victory in his nostrils" as part of his description of what was then a hotly-contested race for the Republican nomination.

In addition to Rather, tonight Piers Morgan fires up "The Grill" for a face to face discussion with Ben Shapiro. Returning to the program for the second time, this evening will bring about the sequel to an initial meeting which saw Shapiro accuse Morgan of dancing "on the graves of dead children," while crediting the need for assault weapons to "the prospective possibility of resistance to tyranny."

Meanwhile, on the heels of a bizarre story out of Florida, in which Pennsylvania woman Brenda Heist has recently emerged after having gone missing more than a decade ago, the host will speak live with Heist's ex-husband Lee, and the couples daughter, Morgan.

Tune in this evening at 9 as Rather brings his rhetoric, Shapiro helps ignite "The Grill," while the Heist family attempts to wrap their heads around the first sighting of Brenda since 2002.

    "There must be tens of thousands out there, who did the same and were just forgotten. That's a part of life when we drift apart. Most of us drift apart slowly and nobody questions it when it happens"

    "Kid won't forgive her mum, and all she has is one version of the truth! What about why??? Why did she walk away??? He doesn't want to know, could he be afraid of the truth??? It will come out! She aint going away now!

      Re. The woman who walked away – found so many yrs. later –

      This happens to WOMEN all the time, and I don't see talk-show hosts, such as Piers, crying for them or feeling "sorry" for them as Piers mentioned to this father/husband tonight!

      Piers should have asked this man some tough questions, as they ask women whose husbands leave, such as: Were you abusive toward your wife? Did you neglect your wife? Did you take your wife for granted? Did you tell your wife she was appreciated or needed? And on & on!

      I don't think we're hearing the whole story re. this man's life!

    I saw this woamn many times in Lakeland Florida in 2012 and 2013. She was always on the road panhandling or just walking.She was in terrible shape, she had big lumps all over her arms.The family should forgive her.She is really sick and I am sure she has been through hell too.I live in Canada.When i saw her picture on internet I recognised her right away.What a shame they don't want to bother with her..

    She appears to look as she MAY had been on drugs for a long time. She will strike a movie deal and make money off this story, that could be her motive to come out of hiding now, she had no sources of income left and this would be her way out. Sorry the kids and husband has to go through this though...

    Piers, take a closer look at the Cricket gun ad you ran today. In one of the scenes, the mother is sitting holding a gun with the barrel pointing directly at her son's head.

    Mr Shapiro has a very good point ..... not on guns.
    I think he raises a good point regarding athletes comimg out. This is not heroic !

    Credit to the man for coming out, but way too much fuss is made about this. He has chosen to do it at 30+ years old at the twilight of his career. He is a multi-millionaire and will be comfortable in life, regardless of what happens after coming out.

    More credit to the soccer player who came out in his mid-twenties at his prime. Shapiro makes a good point, Navratilova did this so long ago .... why the fuss because a male comes out in sport? The women are way ahead of the men as usual !

    Piers, tonight you were roasted on this point.
