"The Burn with Jeff Ross" (TV series) is a talk show on Comedy Central hosted by the "Roastmaster General" Jeff Ross, who will be joined by a panel of guest comedians to skewer the week's pop culture topics in-studio, and hit the streets on the "Roaster Coaster" to take aim at "Public Enemies" such as meter maids, the paparazzi, and those things in life that just need to be taken down a notch. 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.

Known as the "Meanest Man in Comedy" by New York Magazine and "an heir apparent to such old-school masters as Buddy Hackett and Rodney Dangerfield," by The New York Times, Ross has appeared in the last nine Comedy Central Roasts and authored the book, "I Only Roast the Ones I Love: Busting Balls Without Burning Bridges," that was released in 2009.

"The Burn with Jeff Ross" is executive produced by Ross, Mike Gibbons and Tagline Television's Willie Mercer and Amy Zvi. Jim Sharp and Gary Mann are the executives in charge of production for Comedy Central.
