Barkley then asked Morgan if Palin was "good-looking."

And things got skeevier.

"Let me tell you something about Sarah Palin, man," said Morgan. "She is good masturbation material."

TNT quickly apologized: "It's unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments. We apologize for any embarrassment or offense it may have caused," the network said in a statement.
