I've always been a fan of interviews of famous people. Specifically famous people who who have done something great in their lives. There are many shows out there today that are able to make the viewer really feel like they know the person or have something similar with that person. A few shows that come to mind that do this would be 60 Minutes, 20/20, Larry King, etc.

Now that Larry King has left CNN and Piers Morgan has taken over the time slot, I thought I'd give Piers Morgan Tonight a try. His first week of interviews were great! Oprah, Howard Stern, Condi Rice, Ricky Gervais, and George and Nick Clooney. I wasn't sure that Piers Morgan could live up to the Larry King legacy, but after a great first week of interviews, I think he's on the right path.

Piers is an aggressive interviewer who is great at steering the conversation in a good direction. He knows how to get the interviewee to talk, which is a plus, and doesn't come off too hard. I had assumed he would get political, dive into taboo area and try to play "devil's advocate", but I was wrong. In the end the interviews are great, sometime fun and I am getting an inside perspective into the lives of great people.

My favorite interview last week was with Condoleezza Rice. A woman that grew up in the segregated South, who was able to become who some would say, the most powerful woman in the world at one point. Piers had a great interview with her, not challenging her on her political beliefs and decisions but rather getting into her head and asking how she made these decision.

Overall Piers Morgan Tonight is a great show. It gives you an hour to step into the life of famous, powerful, smart, funny, successful people and see a different side to them. I highly recommend this show and think you'll enjoy it.
Great replacement for Larry King. Great replacement for Larry King. Great replacement for Larry King. Great replacement for Larry King.

I was wondering what all the fuss was about! I've seen him on other shows before, so it's super cool that he has his own show now and has landed interviews with all these intriguing folks. I'll have to catch his show one of these days!

So it seems that thus far Piers Morgan has had on his show: Oprah dismissing motherhood, Gervais dismissing religion, and Clooney dismissing marriage. And this is just week one. Almost makes Larry King look like a hard-core tea-partying rightwing extremist.
