Comedy Central Roast of
10 p.m., Comedy Central
The pioneering (and often polarizing) female comic gets raked over the coals by friends — including host Jane Lynch, Carrie Fisher, Sharon Stone, Ellen Barkin, and Katey Sagal — and fellow comics like roasting staple Jeffrey Ross. Roseanne’s TV kids from her long-running sitcom also show up to pile on including both Beckys, Sarah Chalke and Lecy Goranson. Expect lots of barbs about Roseanne’s fluctuating weight, multiple marriages, outspoken personality, and that truly awful rendition of the national anthem, and expect Roseanne to take it all in stride and serve it right back with a smile.
Animal Practice 10:38 p.m., Channel 7
NBC is using the platform of the Olympics to launch several new shows including this frantic, and often frantically unfunny, one about a smug veterinarian (the great Justin Kirk from “Weeds”) and the wacky folks who work at his hospital including Dr. Rizzo, played by the nimble Crystal, a monkey in a lab coat who motors around on a toy ambulance. The cast features some very likable actors including Kirk, Tyler Labine, and JoAnna Garcia Swisher, so hopefully more “Practice” will make perfect, or at least evolve into a funnier show.
