Charlie Sheen ‘Roast’ draws 6.4 million

Most-watched roast in Comedy Central history

Comedy Central’s “Roast of Charlie Sheen” drew 6.4 million viewers Monday night, the most to ever watch one of the cabler’s roasts.

Previous record was the 6.1 million Jeff Foxworthy pulled in 2005. Sheen’s affair was also a big step up from the 3.5 million viewers the cabler garnered for its most recent roast. In March, Donald Trump was skewered.

Net aired the roast at 10 p.m., a half-hour following the premiere of the Sheen-less “Two and a Half Men.” The CBS sitcom drew a whopping 28.7 million viewers in its debut.
