Piers Morgan's greatest hits: Kelsey Grammer on his ex-wife, and his tea party support

All this week CNN is airing some of Piers Morgan's greatest hits – tonight at 9pmET/PT, watch the emotional, surprising hour with Kelsey Grammer (recently nominated for a Golden Globe for his work in "Boss").

Here's a look at what Grammer had to say during the show:

When Morgan asked Grammer whether he is sympathetic to the tea party, the actor answered, "I'm sympathetic to some of the principles, but I'm not sure that the tea party has behavioral problems, other than the ones that can be identified by people who are inimical to them."

The actor pointed out that, like the tea party, he believes "smaller government's a good idea. Always have. I think lower taxes are a good idea. Always have."

Above, watch why Grammer says the "Real Housewives" was a "parting gift" to his ex-wife. Watch the full hour tonight at 9pmET/PT.

Jane Fonda on the media: "Stop trying to be 'objective' and start telling the truth"

Actress and activist Jane Fonda is a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" tomorrow at 9pmET/PT, and she talks about her career, love and politics – and also takes aim at the media. "We're going to have to stop trying to be 'objective' and start telling the truth, and it has to start with the media," says Fonda. "I think it's been quite complicit. There's such an effort to be objective, rather than really looking at underlying truths and telling them, even if it might affect the ratings."

She also talks about the 2012 GOP field: "They all scare me, frankly. I get depressed and scared when I look at the Republican debates." Watch the full, revealing interview tomorrow 9pmET/PT.
