Charlie Sheen Roast Shatters Comedy Central Ratings Record

by at .

Love him, hate him or really, really hate him, there's no denying the drawing power of Charlie Sheen.

This warlock's Comedy Central Roast garnered an incredible 6.4 million viewers on Monday night, setting a network record for a special of this nature and out-drawing anything that aired on Fox or NBC.

Said Sheen when he took to the podium, following digs from Seth MacFarlane, Jon Lovitz, Kate Walsh, Mike Tyson, William Shatner and others:"It was only when the smoke cleared, I realized just how lucky I am. Even after all that, I still have a family that loves me."

The absence of Sheen was also a winner Monday evening: Ashton Kutcher's debut on Two and a Half Men led to that show's highest-ever ratings. Nearly 28 million people watched.
