Kicking off anniversary week on Monday, Jan. 16, Handler appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight to put its host in the hot seat for a change. She addressed his pushy interview style (“I know I’ve been a victim of it”), Larry King comparisons and sought to find out why Morgan so often interrupts his guests.

After Morgan referred to King as “one of my heroes,” Handler jumped in with: “You have some similarities between Larry King. You do like to interrupt a lot.”

"If they start rambling and being boring or obfuscating or just not playing the game properly,” he responded with a laugh, “I’m going to...get proper answers out of them."
