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.
On Thursday evening, Piers Morgan welcomed Abby Huntsman, Marc Lamont Hill, and Maeve Reston for his "Breaking the News" segment, as the trio of journalists and personalities shared their various insights into the recent arrest – and subsequent media scrutiny – of actress Reese Witherspoon:
"We've seen Reese Witherspoon taking on these kind of darker rolls, this much more complicated roll in 'Mud,' which came out last weekend. So maybe she's really not going for America's sweetheart anymore, and she's kind of broadening out her appeal," suggested Reston, after watching the now infamous police video in which the 37-year-old asks her arresting officer, "do you know my name, sir?"
Huntsman, meanwhile, was sympathetic towards the "Legally Blonde" starlet:
"She has got to be so humiliated. I mean, I know she's wearing darker hair and she might be playing darker roles, but she's America's sweetheart. And I think she always wants to be America's sweetheart. She's got to be absolutely humiliated."
Lamont Hill, Huntsman's "HuffPost Live" colleague, echoed his co-host's point:
Also as part of Thursday's program, legendary journalist Dan Rather returned to "Piers Morgan Live" on Thursday evening for another in-depth and fascinating interview.
"Yes, time to consider it," said Rather on the option where the United States would arm the Syrian rebels. "But Piers, we also have to keep in mind here that it's very easy to get into these situations and once you're into them it's sometimes extremely difficult to get out," warned Rather. "Read Iraq, read Afghanistan."
