The 'Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen' will tape in Los Angeles on Sat., Sept. 10, and will air on Comedy Central on Mon., Sept. 19 at 10PM ET, the network confirmed. That means Sheen will return to TV the same night as 'Two and a Half Men' premieres its first episode with Ashton Kutcher, although the sitcom airs at 9PM on CBS and won't be direct competition.
"You could say I've been providing kindling for this Roast for a while," Sheen said in a statement. "It's time to light it up. It's going to be epic."
The idea isn't entirely out of left field, considering that Roastmaster General Jeffrey Ross hopped onstage to burn Sheen during his 'Violent Torpedo of Truth Tour' earlier this year, saving audiences on the latter part of the cross-country tour from Sheen's rambling, unfocused stories. In fact, AOL TV wrote in April that an official Comedy Central Roast could be the out-of-work actor's next move.
The real question, though, is if we actually want the Roast. Sure, it could've been hilarious during the Sheen-mania of early '11, but now that we've seen the aftermath of the actor's self-destruction, will those goddess-referencing jokes still be funny?
Tell us: Will you still watch the Charlie Sheen Roast? Or are you past the whole "winning" phase of your life?
