NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2012

NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --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.
