    Jane Lynch to be roastmaster.

    This has potential to be off the charts funny.

    I will definitely watch, but I remember seeing a tentative lineup of roasters and being underwhelmed... No Jeselnik, no Lampanelli... Granted, this was awhile back and they always make a lot of changes...

    Jeselnik is fucking hysterical.

    Yeah, I love Jeselnik... I highly recommend his comedy album. Holy shit is he funny...

    Tom Arnold would be the home run get.

    Where they ruin these roasts is with the stunt casting. I don't want to see Steve O. I don't want to see Mike Tyson. I don't want any ultra-easy targets sitting in the audience (Pam Anderson etc...).

    I think a good and somewhat realistic lineup would be:

    Tom Arnold
    John Goodman
    Sara Gilbert
    Norm MacDonald (Roseanne gave him his break)
    Anthony Jeselnik
    Jeff Ross
    Amy Schumer
    Lisa Lampanelli
    Nick DiPaolo
    Artie Lange

    Tom Arnold has supposedly said he won't do it.

    I would watch if they just kept switching between Lecy Goranson and Sarah Chalke every few minutes

    Who is doing the National Anthem?

    It's too bad Roseanne hasn't been in the news much. Other than a failed run at the Green Party presidential nom and a failed reality show, people will have to reach back to the 90s for material.

    Jeffrey Ross to Seth Green at the Roast... "Congratulations, this must be a big night for you, you haven't gotten this much attention since you shot all of those people in Aurora."

    "I'm kidding... You're not like James Holmes. At least he's doing something in a movie theater that people remember."

    The reports on it are that the show was pretty tame other than Ross...

    It will be interesting if the Ross stuff makes the broadcast. I'm guessing it will not.
