Comedy Central’s Next Roast Victim: Rob Lowe

Insert your own ”Grinder“ joke here

At least Rob Lowe still has one TV show — unfortunately, that’s only because the actor will be Comedy Central’s next Roast victim.

The “Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe” will take place this year in Los Angeles; its tape and airdate will be announced at a later date.

Rob Lowe is handsome, talented, successful and handsome. He needs to be roasted,” said Kent Alterman, president, Comedy Central.

“What a thrill to once again be following in Justin Bieber‘s footsteps,” Lowe added. “I look forward to a night of hilarious jokes recycled from the ‘James Franco Roast.’ I would like to express my gratitude to the members of my family who have passed away and therefore will not have to endure what promises to be a very special evening.”

Lowe’s Fox sitcom “The Grinder” was recently canceled after just one season. His NBC comedy miniseries “You, Me and the Apocalypse” won’t return either.

Both shows were among the 20 lowest-rated of the 2015-2016 season.
