    I thought Franco was announced previously. Rogen as host is the only new news, I believe.

    Bump! The roast is on tonight at 10. My expectations aren't real high, but I'll probably check it out anyway.

    Watching it now... Better than I thought it would be...

    At least Franco can get his famous friends out to roast him, unlike most of the targets on these thing...

    I thought it was good. I enjoyed it more than any of the others.
    That one and Saget are the only two that have been any good.

    Bill Hader is a very funny human being.

    Comedy Central would hit it out of the park if Stern would allow himself to be roasted.

    Have Artie Lange be the MC.

    What made it work was that obviously the roasters knew Franco and a lot of the jokes weren't picked out of the "Roast Manual."
    Franco's rebuttal was weak, but seeing Hader laugh at the joke about Samberg doing "dick in a box" at Lorne Michael's funeral, hell seeing Hader laugh at everything was great.

    "You had me at spaghetti."

    I thought Leggero stole the show.
