Seth MacFarlane preps Comedy Central grill for Charlie Sheen roast

'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane will host 'The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen'

Third time's the harm.

"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, who has been the roast master for the past two Comedy Central celebrity roasts, will take on those duties again for the "Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen."

The event, which will tape Sept. 10, will air Sept. 19. The special will air on the same night as the season premiere of "Two And a Half Men," the CBS comedy that ousted Sheen as a series of public flareups with producers and drug-related incidents.

"I'm very excited to be working with Comedy Central again on the roast," said MacFarlane, who will be the only three-time returning roast master for the network. "Charlie is a true icon with a talent that is strong and pure and concentrated into small crystals that can be smoked or eaten."

MacFarlane was the roast master for the roasts of David Hasselhoff and Donald Trump.
