60. Wait, why are you blaming him
It's not like he grabbed the mic from those guys from TNT and said that.


Sure perhaps Morgan should have walked away but I'm guessing he get's asked that question alot and figured if he said something assinine they'd drop the whole bit from the show.

The TNT folks are the ones that wanted to play a game of "Who's hot and who's not", not Tracy Morgan. I'm sure Morgan would have been much happier if he was asked something pertinent to the situation - like who is he cheering on in the NBA or some other basketball related question. Instead Smith & Barkley decided to play a game of "Who's hot and who's not", which makes them just as wretched if not moreso.

If I was TNT I'd fire both of them.
