Listen Up! With Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson that Thursday, Barkley kissed the rear end of a donkey that Smith brought into the studio. Barkley has also been weighed on air several times, and once said "bullshit" live on air. In 2002, a controversial Sports Illustrated cover, in which Barkley was portrayed in chains (ala a slave), led to a sometimes heated debate on the TNT studio show. Turner Network Television (TNT) TNT NBA studio analyst, former NBA great and social pundit Charles Barkley will be featured in a new, 30-minute Thursday-night talk show series called Listen Up! Charles Barkley with Ernie Johnson. The live, studio-based show will cover a wide range of topics, from sports to news to entertainment. The series will include weekly guests from the worlds of sports, entertainment, and news. "Listen Up! Charles Barkley with Ernie Johnson is another vehicle for a great personality to express himself and entertain TNT viewers," said Turner Sports President Mark Lazarus. "This new show will be interactive, topical, both funny and serious, and promises to tackle any subject, just like Charles."
