TNT Apologizes for Tracy Morgan’s Sarah Palin Comment

When will TV execs learn the dangers of putting Tracy Morgan on live TV? Thursday night, the 30 Rock cast member appeared on a live broadcast of Inside the NBA on TNT, and chitchatted with host Charles Barkley. About Sarah Palin. Said Barkley: "Sarah Palin's good looking, isn't she?" To which Morgan replied, "Let me tell you something about Sarah Palin, she's good masturbation material." This, unsurprisingly, made Turner, who owns TNT, very unhappy. "It's unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments," said a spokesman for the company. We smell a potential buddy cop/romance movie. [HR]
