piers morgan tonight
Earlier this week, it appeared as if Tim Pawlenty had declared his candidacy for president on 'Piers Morgan Tonight'. However, once CNN began running promos for 'Piers Morgan' highlighting the declaration, Pawlenty's campaign said he had not yet officially announced his run for office, and CNN was taking the quote out of context.
On 'The Colbert Report' (weekdays, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), Stephen Colbert presented a theory as to why Pawlenty's campaign issued the clarification.
"I do not blame them for trying to walk this one back," Colbert said. "Declaring your candidacy for president is supposed to be special. You only get to do it once. So you want to wait for that perfect journalist to share it with. Not just give it up for the first guy who asks. Certainly not to Morgan the Organ."
"If you were being critical, if you were giving him a halftime report," Morgan wondered. "What would you say, 'Go on, you could do better here.'"
"Well, I would say that he needs to be more cheerful when he loses to me in Scrabble," Soteoro-Ng answered.
Redford reflected upon Newman, who died in 2008, on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN), telling a story about the time a man in a restaurant confused Redford for Newman.
"I was at a table in Napa Valley," Redford told the host. "And the table next door was making all this fuss, and I could tell they were looking at me, and they were going to come over and say something."
"What was it like for you when it all exploded, when it all came out, when ... the fairytale was suddenly hit by this hammer blow?" asked Piers Morgan.
Banks told Morgan about her early days as a model, when magazine covers showed off her assets. People thought she had fake breasts, so to prove that they're real, she once exposed them to the studio audience on her talk show, before having a doctor run a sonogram over them so they could be declared implant-free.
"He offered me, I think it was, 150 grand to criticize him boinking his wife," Cowell explained. "Now the crazy part of the story is I said no."
"Why wouldn't you do that?" Morgan wondered
"I don't know," Simon responded, seeming genuinely perplexed. "If you're watching, I'll even do it for $50,000."
"Do you want to know why we're in Afghanistan?" Ventura asked Morgan, before telling him.
"It came to me six months ago when a story came out that they found a vein of lithium there that they say is worth a trillion dollars," Ventura explained. "Now, what is lithium used for? Every cell phone, every computer, and soon to be electric cars."
As the comedienne told 'Piers Morgan Tonight,' (Weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN), she ended up making their encounter awkward by saying something "so lame" that she wanted to grab it and put it back in her mouth.
What happened was that Obama asked her "What's next for you" and Silverman responded by blurting out "I'm going to be naked in a movie!"
"There's a period when we went through a lot of sludge," Johnson explained to Morgan. "I was very fortunate that I had her, who had the wherewithal to say 'Okay, we're going to go through this and it's terrible, but there's somewhere on the other side, if we come out of this, that we're going to become better'."
As Stewart told 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (Weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN), his charmed rock star lifestyle has helped him develop a pretty specific idea about what makes a woman sexy.
"I've been out with women who've been 'Playboy' center-spreads. Absolutely gorgeous features, but no sex appeal," Stewart explained.
"What to you is sexy?" Morgan wondered.
Kristof explained how when he was covering the uprising in Egypt last month, and he saw pro-Mubarak "thugs" out among the protesters, he would immediately tweet "Mubaraks thugs out here holding clubs with nails, better look out."
"Did Elizabeth Taylor ever buy jewelry herself, or was it always given to her by admiring men?" Morgan wondered.
Block answered that Taylor had told him the only time she had ever bought jewelry was during the Duchess of Windsor auction, when she bought only one piece of jewelery that she kept.
Reflecting upon her step-mom, Fisher told 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN) about a "double date" she went on with Taylor, Michael Jackson and Shirley MacLaine.
"No one noticed Shirley and I," Fisher quipped, after laying out one of the few scenarios in which she and MacLaine would be anonymous.
Like many of the luminaries Piers Morgan had on during the hour-long remembrance of Taylor, Fisher mentioned how kind and dedicated Taylor was to her friends, and spoke about the empathy the two-time Oscar Winner had for all those who were suffering.
On 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (Weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN) CNN's Nic Robertson, who was in Gaddafi's compound when this allegedly happened, lashed out at Fox News's reporting on the issue, calling it "Unimaginable, hypocritical, irresponsible, outrageous."
Robertson then disputed Fox News's position that they hadn't sent any of their employees to the compound because they suspected they would be used as human shields. According to Robertson, there was in fact somebody working for Fox News in the compound with him.
