Last night on TNT Kevin Harlan read a promo for a new show on Headline News emphatically titled "Cook Your Ass Off."  Yes, that's the desperate state in which cable television finds itself.

In a ver charming and amusing moments, Harlan hesitates before reading the promo, not sure if he can say the word "cook" on live television.  

Wait, maybe it's "ass."

Kev must not watch too many primetime cable television dramas or Comedy Central, they swear like sailors all the time!  At the behest of broadcast partner Reggie Miller, Harlan is convinced that he can in fact say that word on TNT.  Then, he delivers the promo with a fantastic amount of gusto like it's LeBron James throwing down the sledgehammer.
