Steve Rannazzisi got a slice of good news in the wake of his 9/11 lie admission ... Comedy Central aired his special.
The network hedged after Steve disclosed he was not in one of the twin towers during the attack ... a story he propagated in vivid detail for years.
The special -- "Breaking Dad" -- aired Saturday night.
"The League" star wasn't as lucky with his lucrative Buffalo Wild Wings commercial, which was yanked off the air after he fessed up.
