At this point you probably literally have to be living under a rock to not know that Piers Morgan is debuting his new CNN show tonight, such has been the blitz of Piers PR in the last few weeks.
If some of the revelations slipping out from tonight’s premiere interview with Oprah Winfrey are anything to go by, Piers should have no problem establishing himself as ‘mandatory TV‘ or at least mandatory day-after video clip viewing.
