TOSH RETURNS TO HOSTING DOWNLOADABLE DEBAUCHERIES
ON A NEW NIGHT AND NEW TIME WHEN THE THIRD SEASON OF
"TOSH.0" PREMIERES ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 11 AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT
PASADENA, January 5, 2011 -- Daniel Tosh is back as the arbiter of all things Web on a new night and time with an all-new wardrobe choice for the new season. He'll even reveal a brand new set, but, rest assured, even though it's new, it'll still be just as cheap as the old one. The third season of "Tosh.0" premieres on Tuesday, January 11 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, immediately followed by the series premiere of "Onion SportsDome" at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
The third season of "Tosh.0" includes a wealth of infamous internet sensations, disgusting viral videos, injurious idiots and promises to have the most weirdos plucked from the internet in "Tosh.0" history. In addition, the world will finally get the answer to the question every "Tosh.0" fan has been dying to know since Tosh's phenomenal season two came to a close…what will he be wearing this season? Having retired cardigans, casual jackets and deep V's, what will the sexy host don next?
Tosh will continue to give subjects of notorious viral videos (i.e. American Idol Girls and Stuck in an Elevator) a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they've become synonymous with their very own "Web Redemption," highlighted by the following journeys back from infamy:
•Antoine Dodson: The first time that Dodson was confronted with a rapist, he wasn't prepared. Daniel helps him learn the basics of self-defense before putting him to the ultimate test.
•Evolution of Dance: The Evolution of Dance guy (Judson Laipply) and Daniel compete on "Dancing with the Internet Stars."
•Chocolate Rain: Daniel helps Tay Zonday (a.k.a. Chocolate Rain) record a follow-up to his hit song "Chocolate Rain."
•Phil Davidson: Daniel launches his Presidential bid.
•Lizard Reporter: Reporter confronts and overcomes his fear of lizards.
"Tosh.0" premiered on June 4, 2009 and features the razor sharp humor and biting commentary from comedian Daniel Tosh and delves into all aspects of the Internet from the absolutely absurd to the incredibly ingenious in this weekly, topical series. A break-out ratings success for COMEDY CENTRAL, "Tosh.0" averaged 2.6 million total viewers across its second season and was the most watched show on television when it aired on Wednesday nights among Men 18-24 and Men 18-34.
