Comedy Central Renews Tosh.0 for Three Seasons

As long as you kids out there are doing dumb stuff and putting it on the World Wide Interweb of Computers, Comedy Central will use your stupidity to its advantage. ComCen has renewed its flagship wince-fest Tosh.0 for another season. And another season. And another season. Yup, Daniel Tosh will be in various states of nakedness while showing you the best of skateboarders breaking their ankles, fat people doing things skinny people should be doing, and other Web-based buffoonery through 2016, according to The Wrap

Season 6 of Tosh.0 will run 30 episodes long and debut February 18 at 10pm. No word on how long Seasons 7 and 8 will be, but it's safe to assume they'll be in the same ballpark. 

Renewing Tosh.0 is about as easy as a decision gets for a network. It's cheap, it's crowdsourced, and it's still very popular. The current fifth season is averaging three million viewers per episode and a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demo. So fire up that video camera and convince your friend he can totally make that jump!

Always liked Tosh.0, even amidst some of it's bad PR (they made a somewhat racist and mean spirited diatribe of a local music scene guy in my town, but honestly, that guy was kind of a dick in my opinion so I didn't find it quite as offensive as his close pals did). But seriously, three seasons? That's like, more faith than most other networks have in even some of the most successful shows in the past decade. Did Walking Dead or Game of Thrones get a three season deal :P ?

The only explanation I have for that is that maybe the show is just so cheap to produce that it likely doesn't matter a lot?

Oh, and please cancel Brickleberry. It's so awful that I actually thought it was a running gag Tosh was doing before the actual show came out.

Tosh.0 went downhill in quality, such as it is, roughly last season. There's still some cleverness left in it, but it's eroded to the point where I no longer find it necessary to watch within a week of its airing. It's not due to the repetition either, it's the high dependence on gross-out videos against the laziness of original writing. Naturally Comedy Central doesn't know when to get careful about such things, so they throw money at it.

I, for one, I'm glad they renewed Tosh.0 and Brickleberry, and am already looking forward to the next seasons.

I guess it's a matter of equal strength opposites and all, with so many good shows on air at the moment there has to be so much godawful rubbishy crap like this on air. Idiocracy is alive and well.

I don't really care about the commentary at the beginning of the show, and the bits are hit or miss, I really watch for the web redemptions, that's when Daniel's actual talent comes through as he talks to the people. It's not going to make an top anything lists in my head but it's enjoyable fluff for half and hour a week.

Amazing that a Youtube clip show can still survive on TV.

I watch the show, but I don't get why everybody finds him so funny, he'll say a few funny things about the clip but I have never thought his skits and web redemptions are funny at all. wish he'd do more of the actual clips because if you think about it, most of his show isn't that.

Good, now CC has no more excuses for not cancelling Brickleberry as it should have done after its first season.

Ha, Tosh is the one BEHIND Brickleberry. This proves how afraid they are to offend him! Expect nine more seasons of cartoon bears humping.

Oh I know. That was my point. I'm convinced they kept it around solely to appease him. Now they can dump it without fear of him being upset, and we'll all be better off for it.

It always surprises me that these shows still get ratings. I used to have a Tosh avatar, but after watching the show through 2011 and some of 2012, it just wasn't funny anymore, and it felt like there was no effort put in the show anymore for the clever humor he did so well in his first two seasons when he was still in his old studio. Just being gross for gross sake is more about how much we can cringe and take as an audience and very much less about how much we can actually laugh at what is shown. I wish Tosh would return to his old style of social commentary during the videos (which was what made the show funny in the first place) and cut off making the show ""America's Grossest Home Videos."

I completely agree. I got into the show because they aired the old episodes every day in re-runs and I thought it was hilarious but when I watched the new episodes, I couldn't believe how unfunny I found it. They're just trying to top themselves by being as gross as possible and it just doesn't work.
