Jeffrey Ross -The Burn on Comedy Central

Even if you aren't a Ross fan, the show is pretty good as he gets his comedian friends to come in and comment on various current events or people in the news. It does have a segment that seems like it was stolen directly from Tosh.O but generally the show is a good 1/2 comedy show. During the first 2 shows he went to Sarah Silvermann's house and John Stamos' house for about 5 minutes and he ragged on them and they ragged on him. Pretty funny.

I've been watching. He usually makes me laugh, and I love having other comedians there too.

That said, man, that guy is gross! I am being totally superficial and talking about his appearance. Perhaps it's just part of the shtick, and I get that. But dude - take a shower. /rant

It's okay. Good for a few laughs, but I'd be surprised if it got picked up for many more episodes.

And this is from someone who thinks Ross is consistently amongst the top performers in the roasts.

Haven't seen it.. so it's a ripoff of "Tough Crowd", which was a ripoff of "Politically Incorrect"????

With many of the same comedians (as Tough Crowd). Jim Norton was on last night. And of course many of the Tough Crowd alums were roasters with Ross on the various Comedy Central roasts. I'd be surprised if Colin Quinn doesn't make an appearance. Gilbert was on the 2nd show.

After 1 1/2 episodes I thought the show was a complete train wreck.

It's not like they have writers who can't write. Depends on the comedian and the topic.

Nothing else that is a half hour that is worth watching. I'll take this over The Office which hasn't been funny for the last 3 seasons for my half hour of comedy.
