READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Coming up this tonight at 9, Piers Morgan will host a show dedicated to everything from movies to marijuana, from Brits to bears.
In advance of this evening's airing, here's a brief rundown of the stories the program is set to cover, and why missing such an episode would be a bad idea:
1. The Butler did it
On the heels of a monstrous $25 million opening weekend by Lee Daniels' The Butler, this evening Piers Morgan welcomes Daniels, the film's director, as well as actor Cuba Gooding Jr. and screenwriter and actor Danny Strong.
2. Royal Flush
After conducting the first official interview with Prince William following the birth of Prince George of Cambridge, tonight CNN's Max Foster joins his countryman to dish the dirt on diapers and more. With George still three days shy of one month old, William tells Foster he's already a "bit of a rascal." Tune to CNN this evening as Foster fills Morgan in on everything from William's deft mastery of the car seat, to the adjustments being made by the entire family, including Lupo, the Royal Cocker Spaniel.
3. Grin and Bear it
Just days after surviving a terrifying attack at the paws of a black bear, on Monday evening Abby Wetherell will relive the encounter on "Piers Morgan Live." A 12-year-old seventh grader in Michigan, Wetherell came face to fury face with the bear while jogging along her grandfather's property, and joined by her family this evening, she'll share details of the tussle that left her with deep gashes in her thigh, but remarkably, still alive.
4. No Pot Luck
Two-year-old Vivian Wilson suffers from Dravet Syndrome, a condition which causes her potentially life-threatening seizures. Medical marijuana might be able to help, but in New Jersey – where the Wilson's live – the particular strand Vivian needs isn't available. Tonight her parents, Brian and Meghan Wilson, will talk with Piers Morgan from their home, sharing details of pleading with Governor Chris Christie for help.
