Not sure where to put this either.   Anyway lately they have been talking in the news about Nick Cannon not returning to AGT as host.  Apparently he got a talking to from the network about some things he said in his stand up - so he got mad and quit.

But he mentioned Tracy Morgan and what he had said in his stand up and why did his network not fire him or take him to task?

I had no idea what Tracy Morgan said, so I googled it of course:

It happened a few years ago, but is that what passes for comedy these days?


And if you were there, what would you do, assuming anyone would go see Tracy Morgan live!

I would say walk out obviously.. ask for my money back.

Hard to judge Nick Cannon or NBC if we don't know what he said.

Another article. They come out of the woodwork on the day of the Sydney Gay Mardi Gras ::)
 I always remember when Ian Roberts came out. It was so not done for a sports star.
