It looks like Daniel Tosh will continue his hosting duties at Comedy Central for the next few years. The network confirmed a new contract extension with the comedian, adding three additional seasons of Tosh.0 to the schedule. The renewal was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central.
The new seasons of Tosh.0 will keep Comedy Central’s Tuesday night anchor in originals through 2020 with the 10th season to debut on Tuesday, March 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
“Knowing when to move on in show business is highly overrated,” said Tosh.
“I know it makes Daniel uncomfortable to publicly acknowledge our love and affection for each other, but we couldn’t be more thrilled to extend our relationship with him,” said Alterman.
Tosh.0 premiered on June 4, 2009 and features internet clips and commentary from Daniel Tosh. The weekly, topical series delves into all aspects of the Internet from the absolutely absurd to the incredibly gross at times. Each episode includes a “CeWEBrity Profile” or Tosh giving subjects of notorious viral videos a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they have become synonymous with their very own “Web Redemption.”
Tosh.0 is executive produced by Tosh, Charlie Siskel, Nick Malis and Christie Smith. Monika Zielinska is the Executive in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
The popular Tosh.0 Facebook page (9.1M) is one of Comedy Central’s most-visited properties, which continues to be updated daily with viral web posts, web-exclusive video and show content, plus interactive features. Fans can follow Tosh on Twitter (27.4M) and Tosh.0 on Instagram (46.8K).
