The embattled former Two and a Half Men Star has agreed to become Comedy Central’s latest roastee.
The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen will air at 10/9c on Monday, Sept. 19 — which just so happens to be the same night Ashton Kutcher makes his debut as Sheen’s replacement on Men. The season premiere of Men airs an hour earlier at 9/8c on CBS.
One has to wonder whether Sumner Redstone — the controlling shareholder of both Viacom (Comedy Central’s parent) and CBS Corp. — gave his buddy Les Moonves a heads-up about this little scheduling, ahem, coincidence.
“You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this Roast for a while,” said Sheen in a statement. “It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”
