Comedy Central Roasts Sheen, Strips '30 Rock' During Fall Schedule


Comedy Central set its fall lineup that will see the highly anticipated Charlie Sheen roast, the return of a number of original series, and the cable arrival of 30 Rock.
Tina Fey's highly acclaimed 30 Rock will begin its Comedy Central run on Sept. 19, as the network will strip the half-hour series weeknights at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The Emmy-winning show will serve as a table-setter for Comedy Central's primetime entries.
Winning matters begin Sept. 19 at 10 p.m. with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane hosting the Roast of Charlie Sheen. The next night will feature the fall season premiere of Daniel Tosh and his online favorite Tosh.0 at 10 p.m., followed at 10:30 p.m. by the sophomore season-starter of those noted Workaholics, Adam, Blake and Anders.
Part of its year-long celebration of its franchise player, Comedy will premiere an Oct.2 documentary at 10 p.m. providing viewers with a behind-the-scenes look at the world of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone in their studios in Los Angeles. The 15th season premiere of the animated classic is scheduled three days later in the same time period. It will serve as a lead-in for the second campaign of irreverent sketch show Nick Swardson's Pretend Time.
Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution opens the next night. Filmed at Phoenix's newest club, Stand Up Live, the series features stand-up sets from Iglesias and his fellow funny men, plus music from three-time Grammy award winners, Ozomatli, as the house band.
