Tracy Morgan is in critical condition following a multi-car crash on the New Jersey Turkpike on Saturday. However, the comedian's rep reported that he was "more responsive" as of Sunday. Morgan suffered several injuries, including a broken nose, leg, femur, and several ribs. He is expected to remain in the hospital for several weeks. Police say that the accident occurred after a Walmart truck driver dozed off and collided into the tour bus carrying Morgan and his entourage. Two others in his vehicle are also in critical condition. James McNair, a comedy writer and good friend of Morgan's, was killed in the accident.

On Friday night's episode of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon challenged Channing Tatum to an arm-wrestling match. During the match, the talk show host and 22 Jump Street actor talked trash to each other about all the ridiculous things they were going to do after they won. "I'm gonna start texting you so you see that little typing bubble pop up... and then I'm gonna wait like five years," Tatum threatened Fallon, "and then just text, 'K.'" Ultimately, he did win.
Jennifer Lopez and much-younger boyfriend Casper Smart have broken up after two-and-a-half years of dating, a source has confirmed to Us Weekly. "It has actually been an amicable process that started a few months ago," the source says. "It wasn't an easy decision, but they decided to stay friends... Their relationship couldn't work with the distance. He started trying to establish his own life and career, and she is so focused on hers, and they just couldn't be all about each other anymore." Lopez, 44, and Smart, 27, started dating in November 2011, four months after she split from third husband Marc Anthony.

Murder in The First 10pm on TNT Cable doesn't need another murder investigation, but if network execs insist on assigning detectives to track dangerous sociopaths, they should bring this level of pedigree: Murder was created by cop-show legend Steven Bochco, produced by West Wing veteran Thomas Schlamme, and it stars Taye Diggs and Harry Potter's Tom Felton. With a season-long focus on a single case, the story has plenty of breathing room, and the San Francisco setting feels particularly natural. As unnecessary things go, Murder is exquisite.
