TV Tonight: Roasting Bob Saget

What do you get when a raunchy, dirty, frequently inappropriate TV event meets one of the raunchiest, dirtiest, most inappropriate comedians of a generation? Awesomeness — and a stomach that aches with pain from too much laughter. And that's why I'm not-so-secretly looking forward to tonight's roast of Bob Saget on Comedy Central.

If you haven't heard yet, Bob Saget is a major dirty perv of a comedian. His shtick can be uncomfortable, but I've seen him do it live, and it's mostly pretty funny. He has the kind of mouth my grandmother would wash out with soap. It's hilariously strange given what a clean-cut father figure he was to those of us who grew up watching him as Danny Tanner on Full House, the role that made him a household name.

Anyone on Full House is a pretty easy target for a roast like this because the show was so wholesome. However, news spread this week that some off-color jokes about the Olsen twins may have crossed the line (Saget himself said those jokes went a little too far). But that tiny controversy aside (and, really, what roast worth watching doesn't stir up controversy?) the whole thing looks pretty hysterical.

Tonight's show will also be a bit of a twofer as "roast master" John Stamos does not escape ridicule either, as you can see in some of the preview clips I've gathered. The roast airs tonight at 10 p.m. EDT and PDT. To see the clips, including an absolutely wonderful bit from the legendary Cloris Leachman that literally made me spit my drink out in laughter,

I watched it last night and it was funny, except for the Olsen jokes. I am not a fan of the Olsen twins, but making jokes about Mary Kate's past anorexia problem, plus some of the jokes had Bob sounding like a pedophile to the twins, just didn't do it for me. The twins mentioned that Bob was like a second father to them, as he thought of the girls as of both his own kids. I'm pretty sure Bob wasn't impressed by the Olsen twins jokes either.

I watched it and it was hilarious, so they made bad jokes about the Troll-sens, dont get so PC over dirty humor' My favorite one "the olsens didnt show up tonight because they heard there was going to be food" "Bob saget spends more time on his knees sucking d*ck than mary kate does on her knees with her head in the toilet"

I watched it and it was great! I still cant believe Bob Saget can be so vulgar and I think the Olsen twins jokes were way too far, considering he has known them since they were 6 months old. I wish the Olsen twins were there, it would have made it even more interesting if they were up on stage.

I'm with TsuKata - I love dirty Bob Saget and he was one of my favorites in The Aristocrats.

I watched it last night. Granted, I love Saget's humor. I liked him in The Aristocrats, and then we went to see his standup. He's probably one of the best standup acts I've seen. The roast was hilarious. I don't know that the Olsen jokes bothered me at all.

see bob saget's sense of humor isn't really my thing but my fiance loves him and was talking about watching this roast all weekend. lucky for me though i was able to convince him to go out for drinks so we missed it, and he hasn't complained yet about not seeing it. :)

LMAO. I think Cloris Leachman's comment to John Stamos made John's little John shrink into a second bellybutton. I plan to watch it tonight also.

I can't wait to watch it. I never realize how dirrty Bob Saget was... geez I'm still sucked on his full house image. I honestly don't want to see him in any other way.
