(Newser) – Tracy Morgan, not too shockingly, said something shocking—and now TNT is apologizing for it. The 30 Rock actor told Charles Barkley that Sarah Palin was "good masturbation material" while appearing on Inside the NBA before last night's Knicks-Heat game. He’d been asked whether Tina Fey or Sarah Palin was better-looking, the New York Daily News reports. “Let me tell you something about Sarah Palin," Morgan said. "She's good masturbation material. The glasses and all of that.”

“It's unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments,” said a spokesman for the network. (Update: And then Morgan zinged Palin ... again.)
