Comedy Central renews 'Tosh.0' for 30-episode fifth season
Having apparently weathered a minor controversy involving rape-based humor, Daniel Tosh's "Tosh.0" has been picked up for a fifth season by Comedy Central.
The cable network announced this week that "Tosh.0" will be back in January with 30 additional episodes.
Comedy Central's Kent Alterman blurbs, "Despite the fact that ‘Tosh.0’ has more viewers than any other show on our network, and that Daniel has totally catalyzed his fans online, we still convinced ourselves to pick up the show for another season."
While Tosh adds, "It's hard for me to get excited about anything when the Miami Dolphins look so terrible."
"Tosh.0" has averaging 3.7 million total viewers, including 2.7 million among adults 18-49, for its past two seasons. The series returns on September 25 to start its fall run, climaxing on November 27 with its 100th episode.
