Tosh.0

I don't know how I feel about liking this show. I watch it whenever I can, even though it's often vulgar, disgusting, racist, etc. There's something about this show that works, and while I don't know what it is, I keep watching. Maybe it's the train-wreck appeal of the whole thing. Hard to say.

Apparently I'm not the only one who likes it:

New Comedy Central star outdraws Stewart, Colbert
By James Hibberd Mon Jul 12, 8:41 AM PDT

Who's the most popular host on Comedy Central?

It's not Jon Stewart. And, no, it's not Stephen Colbert.

Daniel Tosh has surpassed both in the ratings to have the most-watched and top-rated studio-based show on the cable network. His series, "Tosh.0," hit another series high Wednesday -- the network's best performance in that time period since "Chappelle's Show" in 2004.

"Tosh.0"? Try "Tosh" 2.4 million viewers.

A bit like a "Talk Soup" for the Internet, "Tosh.0" chronicles all that's newsworthy, weird and lewd about the Internet, with Tosh introducing video clips and occasionally interviewing guests in his "Web Redemptions" segment.

Since the comedian's summer season premiered June 2, five of the show's six episodes have marked a new series high.

"It's a show that came in under the radar and it's a truly word-of-mouth kind of show," said Kent Alterman, head of original programing at Comedy Central. "He hasn't been written about that much. There's really just one factor that stands out -- the show is really funny."

"Tosh" is averaging 2.2 million viewers this season vs. 2 million for "The Daily Show" and 1.4 million for "Colbert Report." Overall, it is the third most-popular show on the network (behind "South Park" and "Futurama").

It remains to be seen if Tosh can maintain his current ratings momentum -- Stewart has been making "Daily Show" a critical and ratings success for 11 years. Also, it's worth noting "Tosh.0" is a primetime show (10:30 p.m.) while Stewart's "The Daily Show" and Colbert's "The Colbert Report" air in late night. Yet comparisons are compelling since Stewart and Colbert are such well known and iconic members of the network's family while Tosh's show just launched last summer.

In April, Comedy Central renewed "Tosh.0" for a third season, ordering 29 episodes set to debut next January. The network is also producing a stand-up tour for the comedian.

Gets the big "meh" from me. Not bad enough to put any effort into explaining why it's bad, but not good enough to set the Tivo or check for when new episodes air.

Probably one of my top 5 favorite shows on TV right now. Some I definitely DVR and look forward too. Daniel Tosh is probably one of my favorite comedians too.

As much as it sucked to see the Chappelle show disappear like that, I think it makes what he did create all the more legendary.

Meh, I'm not a fan. I think he's obnoxious and for whatever reason (I can't specifically put my finger on it), I don't like the way he comes off.

Yeah me too, sometimes it's flat out stupid, even then it's pretty funny. I might get tix to see his standup here in November.

His stand up is way better than the show, of course.

It's the rampant stupidity and off-the-wall comments that crack me up. Random = funny in my book. :-)
