(3:20) Lindsay Lohan is no longer under house arrest -- so the big question ... does she have a shot in hell of reviving her career?
(3:40) We shot the first video of Lindsay as a free woman -- and she had some positive things to say about her future plans.
(5:30) Does Harvey think Lindsay's star will rise again?
(18:30) Tracy Morgan cracks jokes about "retarded" and "crippled" people -- over the line ... or just a comedian doing his job?
(21:50) Why does Lisa Lampanelli get a pass and Tracy doesn't? Good point ... because Harvey is starting to take Tracy's side on this thing!
(28:10) Why are people suddenly on Tracy's case? He's been making jokes like this for years. Are comedy standards changing?
(33:35) Tom Arnold did something we've never seen -- he asked US if Arnold Schwarzenegger's scandal was blowing over. Nina explains.
(38:50) Harvey's random Bill Clinton tale.
(45:00) Rapper Rick Ross' pit bull attacked and killed another dog -- so we gotta ask ... what's the deal with pit bulls?
(50:00) Can pit bulls REALLY be trusted?

Rahm Emanuel misused the word "retarded" and now he's mayor of the third-largest city in the country, so why are we so quick to jump on Tracy Morgan? He's a COMEDIAN!

What is going on with TMZ lately?!?! I have been a long time fan and can say I am truly disappointed with the coverage you are providing to the Brian Stow case. TMZ is an ENTERTAINMENT NEWS outlet. There is no entertainment value in the video posts, pictures, or articles you have recently run. It is an attempt to stick your nose up to the NY Times and other major news outlets that you can run with the “big boys” and cover actual news stories. It is akin to the step-child mentality that “I am just as good as my brothers ABC, NBC, and Fox.” The stories also incite a feeling like Brian deserved it; similar to a lady wearing provocative clothing and later being raped – in the same context you coverage would imply “she deserved it”. Very disappointed; please go back to your core competency.

Pitbulls are not bad dogs just trained to be vicious or not trained at all by ignorant people.

For crying out loud. . when is speech in America a capital offense? So what if Morgan said RETARD. . . that is what they are. . . . so what if if he commented on gay marriage, isn't everyone allowed to comment in this country? Even if you are making stupid comments?

For a free speech society, we certainly are in a constant rush to silence it. . . .can you say facists?

You do realize that Tracy Morgan is a comedian, right? You do know that comedians aren't supposed to be politically correct, right? You do realize that jokes aren't necessarily meant to be taken seriously, right? You do know that Lisa Lampenelli, Louis CK, Daniel Tosh, Chris Rock, Bernie Mac (RIP) and just about every other comedian, good, bad or otherwise, says funny/shocking/horrible things about people/society all the time, right? You do know that this is the nature of the beast, right?

TMZ, please stop policing comedians and comedy.

Having a daughter who is Autistic I take great offense at anyone calling someone "Retarded" regardless of the context. In my house " Retarded" is treated as a swear word!

People need to give lindsay a break, i'm not saying she's changed but she's not a serial killer, she's not the only that has been drunk, just because she's famous doesn't mean she needs to be in jail. Let's see what happens.

If the mental evaluation comes up true, when do they jam her in the rubber room?

I think Lilo has a chance... she is very talented, she just needs to find the right people to surround herself with and elevate her!

I really wish that AMERICA reacted and became just as upset or more concerning direct racial slurs/ comments/ in movies, T.V, radio and just overall!

The focus is on a gay slur and now someone with special needs yet people, & society disrespects African Americans daily and nothing is said nor being done about that!!!

Hello Harvey and Charles.
At some point Tracy Morgan will hit bottom and find himself with no one else to offend. Back in the old days I thought Don Rickles and Andrew Dice Clay was about as non PC and offensive as it gets. However, talking crap about people born with disabilities didn’t seem to cross any comedians mind. If he was born with a disability or one of his children had, would that change his routine? Crapy example for a human being.

I'm not saying pit bulls are evil dogs. The difference is that if a chawawa bits your ankle your not going to be in danger dying from your injuries. The problem with pits is that they have the brawn behind them to do serious damage! For this reason sone strict control guidelines should be put in place. One strike your out! No second chances!
