Charlie SheenComedy Central’s booked a roast of troubled actor Charlie Sheen and has set the air date for September 19, 2011 – the same date as the season debut of Sheen’s old show, Two and a Half Men. The “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Charlie Sheen” (#SheenRoast) will tape in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 10th and premiere at 10 pm ET/PT on September 19th, but it’s not too early to start guessing how many times ‘winning’ will be uttered during the taping.

From the press release:

“You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this Roast for a while,” said Sheen. “It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”

“Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this Roast… which scares even us,” said Kent Alterman, head of original programming and production, COMEDY CENTRAL.

The “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Charlie Sheen” will be executive produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions, who also served as executive producer and director of the COMEDY CENTRAL Roasts Of Donald Trump, David Hasselhoff, Joan Rivers, Larry The Cable Guy, Bob Saget, Flavor-Flav, Pamela Anderson, as well as the Emmy-nominated “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of William Shatner”.
