Comedy Central and Daniel Tosh have agreed to a contract extension for three additional seasons of Tosh.0, it 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. Here's what Daniel Tosh had to say in a statement about the renewal.
"Knowing when to move on in show business is highly overrated."
Tosh.0 premiered on June 4, 2009 and features razor-sharp humor and biting commentary from comedian Daniel Tosh. The weekly, topical series delves into all aspects of the Internet from the absolutely absurd to the incredibly ingenious. 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." Here's what Comedy Central president Kent Alterman had to say in a statement about the renewal.
"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."
