Comedy Central said today that The Comedy Central Roast Of Roseanne will tape August 4 in Los Angeles and premiere on the network August 12 at 10 PM. Comedy Central has seen solid numbers for its roast franchise, including last fall’s Charlie Sheen installment that set an 18-49 demo ratings record (4.5) for the network and drew a franchise-record 6.4 million viewers. Roseanne Barr this season had a pilot, Downwardly Mobile, that did not get picked up to series at NBC. Her Lifetime series Roseanne’s Nuts was cancelled after one season.
