View Full Version : Movies and TV The Burn

How many of you have seen this show? It's on Comedy Central and is still relatively new. The idea is that Ross and his rotating panel of comedians "roast the news". I suppose that it was supposed to capitalize on the success of the celebrity roasts that CC does. I've only seen a couple episodes, but I'm not sold.

I don't think Jeff Ross is charismatic enough to be the host of his own show. I also get the impression that the visiting comedians are doing their jokes on the cuff, and half of the comedians haven't really been able to come up with anything funny, which just makes the whole show uncomfortable to watch.

If you've seen the show, what are your thoughts on it?

It's pretty bad. But his special JR Roasts America had me in tears.
