Tosh.0 gets super-sized fifth season from Comedy Central

Comedy Central has made the controversial decision to order another season of Daniel Tosh's wildly-successful Tosh.0.

The extra-large 30-episode run, the show’s fifth since its premiere in 2009, will debut in January.

"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," the network’s head of original programming and production Kent Alterman said in a press release.

The show’s fourth season premiered to 3.1 million viewers, setting network records in its coveted male demographics. It scored  a 4.1 rating for men 18-34, and 4.6 rating in the 18-24 demo.

The show averaged 3.7 million total viewers and a 2.7 adult 18-49 rating across its two most recent seasons.

Tosh was characteristically nonchalant about the renewal in the release. “It’s hard for me to get excited about anything when the Miami Dolphins look so terrible,” he said.

Tosh.0 is executive produced by Tosh, Charlie Siskel and Christie Smith. Gary Mann is executive in charge of production for the network.

The series, which is currently on a break, returns for the fall portion of its fourth season Tuesday, Sept. 25.
