Comedian Daniel Tosh got a huge vote of confidence from Comedy Central on Tuesday when the network pledged to renew his show "Tosh.0" for three consecutive seasons (6, 7 and 8).
The show, which finds Tosh blithely riffing on some of the funniest and most buzzworthy clips on the Internet, concludes its fifth season Tuesday evening. Season 6 (which will consist of 30 episodes) will premiere on Feb. 18.
During its five-year run, "Tosh.0" has scored big successes. It's the No. 1 entertainment series on Tuesday nights among the coveted demographic of men ages 18 to 24, and it averages 3 million viewers.
The cornerstone of the show is a weekly feature called "Web Redemption" where Tosh offers subjects of particularly embarrassing viral videos a chance to re-create the humiliating experiences with a different ending.
“I am extremely fortunate and very grateful that I can continue to work with such fun and talented people on a very supportive network," said Tosh in a news release. "Sorry for the lack of snark — I will leave that open for the comments section.”
