Casey Kasem's children fight to see their father: "You get 20 minutes ... before being ripped away by an armed guard"

Now into his ninth decade, and suffering from Parkinson's disease, one might think that radio legend Casey Kasem would simply want to spend his golden years surrounded by his children and his friends.

But according to Kerri Kasem, the daughter of the 81-year-old media icon, that is impossible, as her stepmother is preventing Kasem's kids from visiting their ailing father:

Barbara Walters previews her list of the "10 Most Fascinating People": "What does this remind you of: Quack!"

With more than five decades in the television business, and a trio of Emmy Awards on her bookshelf, few would question the editorial choices that Barbara Walters makes.

But few people are Piers Morgan:

"The fact you've left them off your 'Most Fascinating' list, the final one, I think is quite telling," says the "Piers Morgan Live" host, referencing his guest's annual grouping of newsmakers and celebrities, a collection that in 2013 does not feature an Obama. "People will say, 'Wow, even Barbara doesn't find them fascinating anymore.'"

Joining the program for this evening's 9 p.m. primetime interview, the 84-year-old co-host of "The View" suggests that Morgan is reading too much into this year's presidential omission:

Rick Warren on homosexuality: “I fear the disapproval of God more than I fear your disapproval or the disapproval of society”

Coming up tonight at 9, “Piers Morgan Live” welcomes Rick Warren, and a studio audience, for an hour-long interview dealing with a myriad of topics, including personal issues, politics, and the new Pope’s fresh perspective on homosexuality and the church.

Having welcomed the senior pastor of Saddleback Church in the past, Morgan is entirely familiar with Warren's stance against same-sex marriage. However, perhaps on the heels of a new papal institution, the host revisits the issue.

"Do you believe in equality for all,” Morgan asks, a question to which he quickly received a response in the affirmative. FULL POST

Rick Warren on social media: "The Internet is increasing the amount of rudeness"

Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" invites Rick Warren to join the program for a face to face, prime time interview that proves equal parts emotional and insightful.

On the heels of the terrifying new phenomenon that is the game of "knockout," the senior pastor of Saddleback Church suggests that the anonymity of the internet has supplied a venue for acts of unkindness that might otherwise go uncommitted:

"I think that the drug of choice today is fame. I think fame is more important to ... young adults today than anything else. And everybody is trying to live either, A, a perfect life on the Internet and posting like "My Perfect Life" on Instagram or it's Twitter and things like that, or if I don't have a perfect life, uh, if I can't get approval, I will get attention," Warren tells Piers Morgan.

Rick Warren on coping with tragedy: "A lot of people try to make it sound like 'well everything that happens is God's will.' That's nonsense."

On a day which has seen the release of 911 calls placed while the Newtown school shooting was occuring, tonight at 9 "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes Rick Warren, a man all too familiar with the tragedy of losing a child as a result of firearms and mental health, two of the tenets that fueled the massacre on December 14th, 2012.

The well-known American evangelical Christian pastor lost his son to a self-inflicted gunshot wound, an emotional and heartbreaking end to a life defined by internal psychological battles.

Joining Morgan in a primetime interview, Warren reveals the ways in which he walks the complicated line between being spiritual and faithful, versus being blameful and accusatory: FULL POST

Mike Tyson on the political pressures of being the president: "I don't know how many butts, how much you gotta be a brown noser to be a president"

With turkey and stuffing still roughly a day away, this evening at 9 "Piers Morgan Live" serves up a feast of an entirely different flavor, as Mike Tyson and his delicious menu of insight and candor join the program for a face to face interview.

When he last joined the program, roughy one calendar year ago, the man nicknamed "Iron" Mike vocalized his support for the president, specifically backing a healthcare plan that was forthcoming. On the heels of the well-documented failings of the Obamacare roll out, Tyson's tune has changed:

"This thing just really went horrible, didn't it? It really ... it's really bad."

The youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles, tonight's guest still believes in a universal plan, assuming the government can implement an effective one: FULL POST

Mike Tyson on "Knockout" game: "There's just some evil people"

As part of a special pre-holiday edition of "Piers Morgan Live," this evening at 9 the program welcomes Mike Tyson for a face to face interview that promises to serve a hearty helping of personality, and several side dishes of candor.

As a terrifyingly dangerous trend has given birth to a street "game" entitled "knockout," Piers Morgan asks the former boxing champion for his reaction to an activity which centers around the sucker-punching of unsuspecting strangers in hopes of rendering them unconscious.

"I don't make anything of it, it doesn't make any sense, it's a game to some people. I don't think it's cool," says the youngest boxer to win the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles. "I saw one guy hit a woman, hit a girl, from behind." FULL POST
