(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?

I know I'm late to the game here, but I think the issue with controversial comedians is about how well known they are.

Take the Tracy Morgan vs. Lisa Lampanelli debate. I think once a controversial decides to cash in and become 'mainstream,' they resign their ability to touch hot-button issues. Morgan's on '30 Rock,' which is watched by a good chunk of the country. If Lampanelli were on 'Everybody Loves Raymond' or some equally non-offensive sitcom, she wouldn't be able to tell many of the racy jokes she currently can.
