Host And Reveal The Most Shocking Wardrobe Choice In The Show's History
NEW YORK, January 23, 2012 -- Daniel and the "Tosh.0" staff have been laboriously trawling the internet for months and are armed with a new arsenal of entertaining content to unleash on the fans. The highly-anticipated fourth season of "Tosh.0" debuts on Tuesday, January 31 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT and is followed by the series premiere of "Key & Peele" at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
In the premiere episode, Daniel puts an end to the speculation about his replacement as host in which he held an open casting call in Los Angeles during the season 3 finale episode. Also, the host will feature the most shocking wardrobe choice in "Tosh.0" history and reveal what he will be wearing all season long. Previously, Daniel has donned hoodies, cardigans, casual jackets, deep V's, collared shirts, exposed arms and collegiate apparel.
The series’ popular segment “Web Redemption” featuring internet epic fails by individuals who receive another opportunity to rectify their ill fortune will include the following selections for season 4:
• Breakdancer: Daniel hosts a breakdance competition between Alex and three great Asian breakers.
• European Men: Daniel shows Katherine that there are other ethnicities to date other than Europeans
• Haboob Wedding: This couple’s wedding ended in disaster last time so Daniel tries to recreate a better one.
• Cliff Diver: Daniel lets the cliff diver try again.
The fourth season of “Tosh.0” consists of 30 episodes to air in three installments throughout 2012 (January-March; May-July; September-November). The series 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. Each episode includes 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."
