The fourth season of “Tosh.0” currently airs on Tuesday nights at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT and 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.”
A break-out ratings success for Comedy Central, “Tosh.0” posted a 3.0 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 4.3 million total viewers across its third season (up +63% vs. season two). Among adults 18-34 “Tosh” was the #1 comedy series in cable for 2011 and the #1 entertainment (non-sports) program on Tuesday nights in all of television among men 18-24. The purest of multiplatform hits, the “Tosh.0” blog grew to a weekly average of nearly 2 million unique visitors by season’s end.
