He is carrying the legacy of Larry King, who ruled the night interview slot in CNN for the last twenty five years. Piers Morgan’s premiered his very own and first interview show, “Piers Morgan Tonight”, with Oprah Winfrey yesterday.

His first interviewee was Oprah Winfrey, because he reportedly wanted to get inspired by her, before starting his new journey as a talk show host. On the other hand, Oprah Winfrey, who was delighted to alter her role from an interviewer to an interviewee, said that his interview technique was “surprising”. Sources say that he proved himself to be a skillful interviewer, with a good amount of wit, humor and a clever disposition. In the interview, Piers Morgan spoke to Oprah Winfrey regarding her new television channel, OWN. At the same time, his research on the lady seemed to be quite extensive, as he asked her regarding her experience in working in the film, that was based on Toni Morrison’s novel and was produced by her own production company Harpo Productions. The film did not get to much critical acclaim, but the talk show queen said that it had sent her “into a macaroni-cheese tailspin”!

The two also fought about who would be the first one to take an interview of Michael Vick, the celebrated Philadelphia Eagles quarter back. Piers Morgan said that in lieu of one hundred pounds, he would make it before her, while Oprah Winfrey made a bet for two hundred pounds to win this light hearted argument.
