Before last night’s Miami Heat vs. New York Nicks telecast on TNT, comedian and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan was invited to take part in the pre-game show.  Things got awkward (and hilarious) when hosts Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley asked Tracy who he prefers; Sarah Palin or Tina Fey.  Before he could reply, Barkley asked Morgan, “Sarah Palin’s good looking isn’t she?” Tracy responded by saying, “let me tell you something about Sarah Palin; she’s good masturbation material.

Today, TNT issued a press release stating, “It’s unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments. We apologize for any embarrassment or offense it may have caused.”
