Wisecracking comedian Daniel Tosh returns to television tomorrow as host of viral video clip show Tosh.0 on Comedy Central. The show has been on a summer hiatus since May 27. Tomorrow’s premiere is essentially the launching point of Comedy Central’s Fall programming lineup.
The show, which is now in the middle of its 30-episode sixth season, already has renewal orders in place for seventh and eighth seasons. That will keep Tosh on air well into at least 2016.
The comedian, known for interacting with his fans via Twitter during episodes, tweeted out last week: “thank you to the trillions of people that kept #bringbacktosh trending for the last 9 weeks. it worked! all new sodes start next tuesday.”
On September 24, the 18th season of South Park will premiere, followed by the return of Key & Peele for a fourth season. Comedy Central has ordered 10 episodes of South Park, a change from past seasons when the show would air blocks of episodes in the Spring and Fall. The change is reportedly to give the show’s creators more time to work on other projects.
Tosh.0 airs new episodes every Tuesday night at 10 p.m. and will soon be followed by the mid-September return of Daniel Tosh’s other show, Brickleberry, an off-color animated sitcom set in a national park.
Tosh.0 first aired in June of 2009, becoming an unlikely smash hit and one of the network’s top rated shows almost overnight. To date, Comedy Central has broadcast 146 episodes of the series.
