(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?

Hey guys, there are 2 parts to this. 1) when you go to a comedy show expect offensive comments. Enter at your own risk, right? 2) it is a little curious that he would not tone it back a bit only because of how raw the wound was from the last situation.

Crowd didn't like it, he should've stopped. 'Nuff said.

Was he there to entertain or to preach?

Years ago Andrew Dice Clay was very offensive and he was selling out all his concerts. Half of what was on the original Saturday Night Live shows couldn't be shown today. More politically correct now?

Why does Lindsay have to do this in Babyl - I mean L.A.? Why not Utah? I heard it's pretty hard to get a drink there. Maybe a nunnery...

well being a comedian means you dont have to be serious about everything you say... racial jokes and things like that i guess they're allowed to make fun of whatever they want and get away with it...

Morgan should catch heat, and lots of it. Dude, if you're going to offend everyone, at least make sure the joke is funny, OK? Then they'll forgive you. But you're just being loud, obnoxious, and tacky and nothing I've heard you say on this latest "piss 'em off" rampage is even remotely clever or amusing.

Lindsay Lohan - At this point as long as sobriety is a success for her she'll be fine.
Tracy Morgan - He said he would kill his child for being gay, he didn't say he would kill his child for having a disablity. He apologized, move on.
Schwartzenegger - His family's business, no one would care if there wasn't a kid involved. T2 is still incredibly entertaining.
Pit Bulls - Any dog can flip out at any time. Pit's are terriers, they were bred to destroy things. Maybe the AKC and other KC's will set a new standard in temperment, even then it would take a while to breed a generation of pit bull that's instinctively more chill.
-The End. :)

Hi Guys in regards to pit bulls

Here in Australia pit bulls have been banned for a few years now via various state based dangerous dogs laws. Unfortunately these laws are being flouted by illegal dog breededr. Some information articles are in the Wikipedia article.

Clearly Tracey needs 30 Rock writers to be funny. I think offensive humor is funny when it is clever and being clever is something he obviously lacks. Howard Stern and Lisa Lampinelli are sharp witted and outrageously funny people and that's how they get away with it. Even the TMZ family pokes fun at eachother about their differences and everyone has a good time as a result. Being PC can be boring and dishonest. I respect a person that can laugh at themselves and the 'group' they belong to. Comedians like Tracy Morgan don't seem to have the comic mind to pull off shocking humor and that's when it becomes offensive. I personally draw the line at putting down people that can't defend themselves. It's usually a lonely life for someone with a disability because of all our hangups, so let's never make it acceptable to hurt them more with our laughs.
