Comedy Central's roast of Charlie Sheen sparked blazing hot ratings, becoming the highest-rated roast in the franchise's history.

The special drew 6.4 million total viewers, making it the most-watched Comedy Central roast ever. The second-highest rated roast was Jeff Foxworthy with 6.2 million, followed by Pamela Anderson with 4.3 million.

Sheen — or rather, the lack of Sheen — also propelled "Two and a Half Men" to its best performance Monday with its first episode without the actor, who was fired earlier this year after a highly publicized public meltdown. The return of the CBS comedy, which introduced Ashton Kutcher,  pulled in almost 29 million viewers, the best scripted-series premiere since 2005.
