Tracy Morgan returned to television by making an iconic appearance on the Emmys and was received by a standing ovation.
15 months back, Tracy Morgan got in a horrible accident riding with his mentor. The terrible accident left Morgan in a coma and led to Jimmy’s death. Tracy was pretty shook up when he woke up.

Upon his appearance for an interview with Matt Lauer, he admitted that his recovery had been tough. He was bruised inside and out. He admitted that it was very hard for him to return to normal especially with the death of the person that had pioneered him. His family and friends had stuck with him though. He has been in recovery.
So it was a marvelous sight when the comedian made his way out on the Emmy stage in a plum colored tux, walking without a walking stick (which he had carried on the Matt Lauer show), to announce the last award of the night.
He was welcomed by the audience with a standing ovation. He declared that he missed them very much. He addressed the audience “Last year, Jimmy Kimmel stood on this stage and said, ‘We’ll see you back here next year, Tracy Morgan.’ Well, Jimmy, thanks to my amazing doctors and the support of my family and my beautiful new wife, I’m here.”
Morgan thanked all the people that had supported him and prayed for him through all the time during his recovery. He admitted that he was ecstatic to find out once he woke up that the accident had not been his fault.
Morgan lightened the mood around the Microsoft Theater with his signatory humor, cracking some top class jokes. He finally announced the award for the best drama series which was won by the Game of Thrones.
Morgan later told the press that he had watched TV and movies during his recovery. He said that it was a part of his recovery, seeing his friends and co-actors. It made him want to come back.
His publicist then suggested to him that it was time to let Hollywood welcome him back. He had conceded and hence had decided to return to the stage that marked his appearance both on stage and on television.
