Piers Morgan Tonight begins its run as the replacement for Larry King Live on Monday, but Morgan has been teasing his first interview, with Oprah Winfrey, for days. You'll notice it's not Piers Morgan Live, and the already-taped two-hour extravaganza will be cut down to 45 minutes or so on air. That's some heavy-duty editing, with lots of interesting bits likely to be left out.

Twice a year, the Television Critics’ Association has what I consider a dinosaur of a gathering, commonly known as TCA Press Tour, in which networks trot out their new shows and talent. I’m always happy not to be there, especially yesterday when I could sit back and read the very funny tweets from critics trapped in the room during the presentation for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network. The headline: in answer to a single question which no one can quite remember, Oprah went on for – someone clocked it – 18 minutes and 15 seconds. This was supposed to be a press conference, not a dramatic monologue, but it ended up inspiring the hashtag #oprahfilibuster.
