Premiering Sunday, August 12th on Comedy Central is The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne. Glee actress Jane Lynch served as roast master, while actors Seth Green (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery), Katey Sagal (TV's Sons of Anarchy), Carrie Fisher (Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope), Ellen Barkin (Ocean's Thirteen), and comedians Jeff Ross, Wayne Brady, Amy Schumer, and Gilbert Gottfried roasted the legendary comedian. However, the highlight of the night was a surprise appearance by actor, comedian, and Roseanne's ex-husband Tom Arnold (Knockout).

The morning of the telecast, IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick had a rare opportunity to sit down with actor/comedian Tom Arnold to discuss his appearance on The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne. Arnold spoke candidly about the roast, why he was asked to perform, how it all came together, the difficult negotiations to make it happen, reuniting with Roseanne, and what he said to her after the roast.
