Tracy Morgan Explains Homophobic Comments to Letterman

That homophobic rant that got 30 Rock's Tracy Morgan in trouble months ago hasn't gone away. David Letterman asked him about it on Monday's Late Show.

Check out the rest of the day's news on

"At the end of the day, I'm a comedian. I try to use the gift God gave me to help the world, to heal the world, not to hurt anyone," Morgan said Monday night about the June 3 show in Nashville. "I was hurt by it because people came to the show and were bummed out."

Cheers: By George, Saturday Night Live's Got It

Cheers to Saturday Night Live for paying tribute to George Carlin by reairing the show's debut episode, which the comic hosted in 1975. Watching it again reminded me how the SNL host's job has evolved: Carlin blessedly didn't have to dress up in silly costumes for sketches. He simply did four expert stand-up routines. It also made me realize how brave Lorne Michaels was to put Carlin on the air as his opening act — after he'd been arrested for his "Seven Dirty Words You Can't Say on TV." And it gave me a renewed appreciation for Carlin's fearless versatility, joking about topics from the sublime ("Everything God has ever made died... he's batting .000!") to the ridiculous (the timeless football/baseball bit). He may not have believed in an afterlife, but Carlin's comedy will live long after his death.• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on or in TV Guide mag... read more

Executive producer Lorne Michaels credits him with giving the show some early momentum. "You never forget the people who were there at the beginning," he said. "George Carlin helped give Saturday Night Live its start as our first host. He was gracious, fearless, and most important of all, funny."The episode also features musical guests Janis Ian and Billy Preston and includes a perfomance by comedian Andy Kaufman. — J.R. WhalenDid you know?: In its earliest days, the show was called NBC's Saturday Night because ABC was already airing Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell.

Legendary Comedian George Carlin Dies

Comedian George Carlin, best known for his edgy routines brimming with dirty words, died Sunday of heart failure in Los Angeles at the age of 71. Carlin became a comedic icon in the '70s with his infamous "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Televsion" routine which we think is the best video to serve as a tribute to the potty-mouthed master. And as if it wasn't obvious enough, we'll still say it: Contains Adult Language. read more
