Ben Smith to join "Piers Morgan Live" following exclusive interview with Anthony Weiner

Less than two hours removed from what promises to be a fascinating interview with New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, this evening at 9 journalist Ben Smith will join Piers Morgan with his live conclusions and perspective.

Editor-in-Chief of "BuzzFeed," Smith will host Weiner for the initial New York installment of "BuzzFeed Brews," a widely successful interview series that – until this evening – had been conducted entirely in Washington, D.C.

Having recently partnered with the social media and viral video website, CNN will offer periodic glimpses of the interview as it's happening live from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. Then, after wrapping his interview with Weiner, Smith will depart The Ainsworth on Manhattan's west side, and hustle over to the "Piers Morgan Live" studio for a recap with Morgan.

On the heels of his most-recent sexting scandal, Weiner has stolen newspaper headlines, in the process, likely giving up any realistic hope of becoming New York City's mayor, as the latest polls show the polarizing politician having dropped down into a distant fourth place.

Tonight's appearance on "Piers Morgan Live" marks a return to the program for the Yale University graduate, as past visits have seen Smith offer his insights on everything from a 1991 video of Barack Obama while at Harvard, to Mitt Romney's criticism of the president following the attacks in Libya.

To watch a livestream of Smith's interview with Weiner visit buzzfeed.com, and watch CNN for regular live looks at the conversation. Then at 9, join "Piers Morgan Live" as Smith offers his candid reactions and commentary following the 45 minute "BuzzFeed Brew."

Tonight at 9: Predators, Pot, Politics, and Pythons

Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes a host of returning guests, each dedicated to advancing a particular story that falls under their realm of expertise.

  • Lydia Esparra and the demolition of Ariel Castro's house

As Ariel Castro awaits his permanent prison, the home where he held three women captive is being reduced to rubble, perhaps a metaphor for the crushing destruction he inflicted on Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry, and Michelle Knight.

Having covered the case in Cleveland for years, and growing close during that time with the DeJesus family, WOIO news reporter Lydia Esparra will rejoin Piers Morgan with her detailed insight and perspective.

  • "Gone To Pot": Dr. Sanjay Gupta

In advance of his upcoming CNN special entitled "Weed," this evening Dr. Sanjay Gupta joins the program as part of a discussion on medical marijuana and the legalization of cannabis.

Joining Gupta and Morgan, Dr. Howard Samuels will share his pot perspective, which comes on the backdrop of his years as an addict, and his time spent creating and founding "The Hills Treatment Center" in Los Angeles, Calif.

  • NYC Mayoral candidate Christine Quinn to be joined by supporter Sandra Fluke
  • With the New York City mayoral election less than three months away, tonight Christine Quinn returns to "Piers Morgan Live," and she does so holding top position in the latest poll. On the heels of race turbulence resulting from Anthony Weiner's latest gaffee, the City Council Speaker will be joined by famed women's right activist Sandra Fluke, who has recently announced her endorsement of Quinn.

  • Rogue Reptile: Jeff Corwin on snake safety
  • And, less than a week since his most-recent "Piers Morgan Live" appearance, on Wednesday animal expert Jeff Corwin will be back on the primetime show, only this time under significantly sadder circumstances.

    The host of Animal Planet's "The Jeff Corwin Experience" and "Corwin's Quest," this evening's visit comes on the heels of the recent death of Noah and Connor Barthe, two young Canadian brothers who are believed to have been killed by a 100-pound African rock python.

    For all of these stories, plus up to date, breaking news events, watch "Piers Morgan Live" at 9 on CNN.

    Tonight at 9: A-Rod, Al Qaeda, and Ariel

    Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes a host of informed experts, industry insiders, and influential media members all charged with offering context and perspective to some of Monday's most-polarizing topics and stories.

    • Alex Rodriguez Suspended

    As Major League Baseball levies a series of suspensions against 13 players – including Alex Rodriguez, who'll be forced to sit out 211 games – for violating the league's substance abuse policy, tonight Christine Brennan will return to the program with her brand of candid insight. An award-winning sports columnist and author, in a recent visit Brennan offered her analysis on admitted performance enhancing drug user Lance Armstrong, suggesting that "we can retire the gold medal for cheating."

    Additionally, well-known brand expert – and frequent "Piers Morgan Live" guest hostDonny Deutsch will also join the host in studio with his expert analysis as to how Monday's penalties will impact the images of A-Rod and others.

    • Al Qaeda Threat

    Meanwhile, as 22 United States embassies are closed following a recently intercepted Al Qaeda message, tonight Piers Morgan invites colleague Erin Burnett to share her reaction to the latest developments. The host of CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" is set to anchor a special investigation entitled "The Truth about Benghazi," which airs Tuesday evening at 10 p.m., and in advance of the hour-long program tonight Burnett will offer additional insight into terror threats both in the Middle East and on American soil.

    And, roughly six weeks since journalist Michael Hastings lost his life in an automobile accident, this evening his widow Elise Jordan joins the program, offering her first national interview since his death. An outspoken critic of war in the Middle East, it was Hastings' "Rolling Stone" article entitled "The Runaway General" that led to the firing, and soon thereafter, retirement of US Army general Stanley McChrystal.

    • Ariel Castro

    With Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro currently serving time in a temporary prison, this evening Dr. Rebecca Bailey and Dr. Frank Ochberg will offer professional insight into the long-term psychological effects that being imprisoned and abused can have on the young women involved. A psychiatrist with expertise on psychopaths, Ochberg testified at Castro's sentencing, and has been consulting with the defense during the investigation, while Bailey specializes in family reunification and trauma recovery.

    Tune in to CNN at 9 for these stories – plus a live interview with John Moody, the man driving the school bus that served as the scene of a violent beating that left a 13-year-old with a broken arm, and two black eyes. He's on record as saying he did all he could. But, days later, is he thinking differently? Piers Morgan asks him about that in a live interview.
