Comedy Central's Fall Lineup

According to The Hollywood Reporter, September 19 will be the genesis of the return and birth of new shows to Comedy Central. On this date, things will start to build steam with The Roast of Charlie Sheen. Feels like they might kind of be a little late to that party, but sure, why not. Comedy Central Roasts are always good for at least a couple of laughs before some C-list celebrity is dragged out and forced to awkwardly tell jokes they didn't write. Much like The Roasts of David Hasselhoff and Donald Trump, the Roast of Charlie Sheen will be hosted by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

In a really cool grab by the network, repeats of 30 Rock will start playing September 19 as well. Hopefully the spread of the show to different networks will cause an huge revitalization in their ratings and market interest. 

September 20 will see the return of Tosh.0 and Workaholics to the airwaves. Both great shows, and more people should be checking out Workaholics. Consistently entertaining.

September 25, Comedian-Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham has a new special titled Controlled Chaos. So if you're a fan of Jeff Dunham, and probably coloring books, you'll want to check that out.

October 5, South Park returns with some big shoes to fill after their season finale about Stan's home-life. Also returning this night is Nick Swardson's Pretend Time, which I'm surprised to hear is making a return at all. But at least things are being tipped in a positive favor overall by comedian Gabriel Iglesias getting a new standup special, Stand-Up Revolution.

Other awesome shows to hit airwaves in the Fall season are specials for Craig Ferguson, Weird Al, Donald Glover, a South Park Documentary, Pablo Fransisco, and TJ Miller. Going to be a good end to the year!
