Commentator Rich Harris had a role in re-uniting author Mitch Albom and subject Morrie Schwartz, a meeting that resulted in the book Tuesdays with Morrie. This Sunday marks 200 weeks — nearly four years — that the book has been found on The New York Times bestseller list. Harris, a Nightline producer, was trying to put on a show about making the subject of death much less taboo when he booked Schwartz. (3:00)
Tuesdays with Morrie, is published by Doubleday. For the next three Mondays, starting September 3, ABC's Nightline, will rebroadcast interviews with Morrie, which predate the book.
