(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?

I would like to point out that yes we are a FREE SPEECH society but what some people forget is that we are still RESPONSIBLE for the consequences of what we say. If we want to spout of idiotic things, then we should be adults and ready to take the responsibility for them and accept the consequences.

Lindsay needs to do one thing to stay out of trouble....when she want to do something she first needs to ask herself "is this legal?" and just asking that question should answer itself....ie if you have to ask the question DON'T DO IT

Harvey - Lindsay did have the chance to do alcohol while on probation as we found out last week. But not drugs. If she was serious about doing the right thing she wouldn't be consuming alcohol, yet she failed an alcohol test and claims it was "tea." If she had any desire to fix her life after the DUI, she would never have had alcohol or drugs again. I have given up on her and no matter what she puts out, I won't go see it because now I feel I'm putting money in the pocket of a drug addict.

Lindsey may be a complete idiot, but she was in Machete! Hopefully there will always be movies as great as Machete. I think her career will be fine as long as she keeps it up with the slasher/action adventures. Good luck. Unfurl that freak flag.

You guys remember when TMZ was the voice of the people, I do. I didn’t think this day would come but it has, TMZ has officially been turned out like some Hoer, like every other show out there. I’m sure being paid by some back door corporate giant to run spear campaigns agents people. Will TMZ it was a good run, time for the next big thing, start getting use to being the second place news. I hate to say it but TMZ you no longer have the credibility you once did. Don’t take my word for it, just listen to the word of mouth of the people on the streets who made you…RIP TMZ

I could be very wrong but I feel like Tracy Morgan has always been saying offensive things like "retard" and what not. People are just paying attention now.

I'm not particularly offended by his comments any more than I would be for someone else who says hackneyed things. It's out of the 1970s. It's no longer edgy just picking on easy targets. That's my problem with it - not so much the use of the words retarded, that's a word, just that it's incredibly lazy. It's no different from someone doing race jokes or gay jokes or anything else, it's not offensive, just pathetically lazy material that was done to death in the last century.

Everyone who is "offended" by these words needs to man up.. Seriously, grow up and stop whining about the words hurting you. YOU choose whether or not you are offended.. No matter what word you call it, having mental disabilities will never be a good thing. GROW UP people and live your own lives.

It's retarded how sensitive everyone is now in this country... 1. He's a comedian... enough said, let him do his bit, if you don't like it, don't pay money to see him. If he offends everyone enough that they won't go, he will change his bit. PERIOD... 2. Freedom of speech. Again, enough said. 3. Get over it...
