The network also announced the renewal of “Tosh.0” for a third season which will consist of at least 29 episodes and premiere on Wednesday, January 12 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Currently in its second season, “Tosh.0” is a huge ratings success for COMEDY CENTRAL averaging 1.8 million total viewers.

“Tosh.0” premiered on June 4, 2009 and features the razor sharp humor and biting commentary from comedian Daniel Tosh and delves into all aspects of the Internet from the absolutely absurd to the incredibly ingenious in this weekly, topical series which airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. The series also features viral clips of the week and original videos created by and starring well-known actors and comedians. Each episode features the segment “Web Redemption,” which gives subjects of infamous viral videos (i.e. Phillies Fan and Make It Snow Girl) a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they’ve become synonymous.
