NEW YORK, November 15, 2012 – The flames are still burning hot for the ultimate “Roastmaster General,” as COMEDY CENTRAL has renewed the weekly topical series, “The Burn with Jeff Ross” for a second season, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, Head of Original Programming and Production, COMEDY CENTRAL. “The Burn” is executive produced by Ross, Mike Gibbons, Chris McGuire and Tagline Television’s Willie Mercer and Amy Zvi. Six new episodes are set to premiere on January 8, 2013.
“The world is definitely a better place for having Jeff roast it on a weekly basis,” said Alterman.
“I’m delighted to be off the road for a while and back to work on ‘The Burn,’” said Ross. “I consider it my personal mission to roast the world’s big shots, bullies, and big mouths every single week. The network only had two demands: that I cut down my cursing by ten percent and my hair by eighty percent.”
