Comedy Central has renewed the weekly topical series, The Burn With Jeff Ross for a second season. The show, executive produced by and starring the network’s resident roastmaster, has received a six-episode order for a January 8 premiere. Ross executive produces The Burn with Mike Gibbons, Chris McGuire and Tagline Television’s Willie Mercer and Amy Zvi. “The world is definitely a better place for having Jeff roast it on a weekly basis,”said Kent Alterman, Head of Original Programming and Production. Added Ross, “I consider it my personal mission to roast the world’s big shots, bullies, and big mouths every single week. The network only had two demands: that I cut down my cursing by ten percent and my hair by eighty percent.”
