As already publicized, his first guest was Oprah Winfrey, with whom he discussed her recent trip to Australia with fans who attended the season premiere of her talk show. Though John Travolta, a goodwill ambassador for Qantas Airways and a commercial-rated pilot, appeared on the season premiere, Oprah clarified that he did not fly the Qantas plane that took the audience members to Australia.

Morgan also asked Winfrey how many people she trusts in her life. She said there are five, but declined to name them.  Morgan correctly guessed that two of those people are her best friend, Gayle King, and her longtime partner, Stedman Graham.

Morgan's guests for the rest of the week include George Clooney and Ricky Gervais. Piers Morgan Tonight is CNN's replacement for Larry King Live, which ended last month.
