BURN, BABY, BURN!

THE SECOND SEASON OF "THE BURN WITH JEFF ROSS" PREMIERES ON COMEDY CENTRAL(R) TUESDAY, JANUARY 8 AT 10:30 P.M. ET/PT

Premiere Episode Panelists Include Anthony Jeselnik and Lisa Lampanelli

"The Burn with Jeff Ross" Episodes will be Available Day After Air in HD on iTunes, Xbox, Sony PlayStation, Amazon, Samsung and Vudu

NEW YORK, December 17, 2012 - The Infamous "Roastmaster General," Jeff Ross, is back on COMEDY CENTRAL and better than ever in the second season of the weekly half-hour topical series "The Burn with Jeff Ross," premiering on Tuesday, January 8 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. Guest panelists in the premiere episode include Ross' friends and fellow comedians Anthony Jeselnik and Lisa Lampanelli, both well-known for their roasting prowess.

The weekly series picks up where the Roasts leave off: Ross and a panel of guest comedians skewer the week's pop culture topics in-studio, and hit the streets on the "Roaster Coaster" to take aim at "Public Enemies" like drunks, hipsters and zombie lovers. Other segments include "Friendly Fire," in which Ross knocks on celebrity front doors, camera in tow; and "Too Soon," featuring commentary on the (extremely) recently departed. "The Burn with Jeff Ross" premiered its first season in August and averaged 1.0 million viewers per episode.

Leading up to the on-air premiere of season 2, "The Burn with Jeff Ross" Web site will feature preview clips, ticket links for show tapings and daily blog posts via a new Tumblr page launching in December. Fans of "The Burn" will also be able to interact with Ross via COMEDY CENTRAL social media platforms and an on-site Twitter module. Fans also can follow Ross on Twitter @realjeffreyross. Additional plans for engaging fans of The Burn online are in the works. Each episode of "The Burn with Jeff Ross" will be available the day after air in HD on iTunes, Xbox, Sony PlayStation, Amazon, Samsung and Vudu.

Having headlined the last nine COMEDY CENTRAL Roasts, Ross has roasted the likes of Roseanne, Charlie Sheen, Joan Rivers, Pamela Anderson, David Hasselhoff, and Donald Trump. As a stand-up comic, Ross has appeared on dozens of TV shows, including "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," "Conan," "Last Call with Carson Daly," "The View," and "Real Time with Bill Maher." He also continues to perform regularly for American men and women in uniform stationed all over the world.

In film, Ross has appeared in the Farrelly Brothers' "Stuck on You," Paul Weitz's "American Dreamz," and the critically-acclaimed comedy, "The Aristocrats." Ross has co-written a film with producer Art Linson, "The Comedian," starring Robert De Niro and Kristen Wiig, and directed by Sean Penn. Ross' directorial debut, "Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie," nabbed the best feature film award at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Ross' first book, "I Only Roast the Ones I Love: Busting Balls without Burning Bridges," is now available in paperback from Simon Spotlight Entertainment, a division of Simon & Schuster.

"The Burn with Jeff Ross" is executive produced by Ross, Mike Gibbons, Chris McGuire and Tagline Television's Willie Mercer and Amy Zvi; and directed by Jay Karas. Jim Sharp and Gary Mann are the Executives in Charge of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
