His first guest, Oprah Winfrey, couldn't be a bigger star, with over a billion-dollar fortune, and a brand new network of her own.

Does Piers live up to the hype of replacing crooner Larry King after 25 years on CNN?

The British host has been hyping up the show with his own opinions, particularly on people he wishes to interview. One of the biggest stories surrounding his new program has been his dislike for Madonna, one of the world s most iconic musicians.
