Tosh0 was launched to a similar demographic as E!'s Talk Soup and its since-canceled derivative, G4's Web Soup, and of time-filling video mashups on late-night talk shows It launched at a time of the convergence of television, computers, video cameras, and Internet access—across all devices and across all walks of life

The show premiered on Comedy Central on June 4, 2009, starring stand-up comedy veteran Daniel Tosh The first season was a surprise hit, averaging more than one million viewers per episode Within ten weeks of its premiere, Tosh0 became the second-most-watched cable network show in its time slot among males aged 18–34, a sought-after advertising demographic

The show was originally scheduled for only 10 episodes, but as its popularity increased, Comedy Central extended the first season to 16 episodes In December 2009, it was announced that Comedy Central had renewed the show for a full second season with 25 episodes, and the show has since been consistently renewed as of 2015

In 2015, the series was sold into syndication, to air on local stations in major US cities, and in other local markets for late-night weekend spots


Tosh0's low-cost production model is oriented upon viral video clips that are freely downloadable from the Internet and freely reusable via American fair use copyright laws, with host Daniel Tosh presenting from a chromakey virtual stage Daniel Tosh says, "The format had been tried a couple dozen times and failed Our idea to push it as far as we can and see what happens"; and that the staff selects videos of "people whose lives were changed because of a 15-second clip" Executive Producer Charlie Siskel said the show " at pop culture and all areas of life through the lens of the Internet"

The video clips are primarily selected by the show's full-time researchers and validated "on a case-by-case basis" by Comedy Central’s standards and practices division Though reportedly approving 95% of all the show's submitted videos, Tosh says this division is surprisingly unpredictable in both its approvals and disapprovals, and that he's as surprised as the audience is at what the company allows on TV The range of selected clips includes spontaneous cuteness, whimsical performances, romance, accidents, exhibitionism, fetishism, surrealism, stunts, vomit, gore, and other acute bodily harm Hank Stuever of The Washington Post says the show's decadent tone is formed around the values and maturity of its young adult target audience


Each episode begins with a cold open of a viral video clip from the Internet Presenting to a live studio audience seated before his virtual stage, Daniel Tosh makes jokes and commentary about that video, and about a selection of other viral videos and pictures He may act as if he were commenting on a video sharing site such as YouTube, making as many jokes as possible in 20 seconds The final video in this section enters a "Video Breakdown" segment, where Tosh discusses the video's elements of action and themes

Tosh may perform original short sketches related to or parodying these videos For example, he displayed a video of a man attempting to climb a precariously homemade staircase of milk crates to reach a flagpole, resulting in a great fall with visibly broken bones Tosh whimsically parodied the tragedy in a fully animated stylistic recreation of Nintendo's original Super Mario Bros 1985 video game, starring himself as Mario within the game's madcap action of jumping over huge blocks and collecting treasure

The "Web Redemption" or "CeWEBrity Profile" segments additionally invite the stars of those videos directly onto Tosh0, where they are interviewed to explain and recreate the video's subject matter The segment yields various blends of increased cuteness, humiliation, bullying, parody, black comedy, sympathy, or protectiveness in an attempt to explore and redeem the star and the subject matter For example, Tosh pretends to spend days trapped in an elevator with Nick White, whose actual 41 hours trapped in a New York elevator had been chronicled by The New Yorker and posted on YouTube in 2008 The "Web Reunion", "Web Remix", or "Web Investigation" segments are formatted similarly; the "Web Retreat" featured Tosh hiking with Paul Vasquez from the viral video Double Rainbow

Throughout the show, Tosh interacts directly with the live audience, inviting broadcast viewers to actively join his following of millions of Twitter users in "live tweeting" and to submit their own videos In the "Is it Racist" segment, Tosh invites viewers to vote on any racial stereotypes presented in a video In addition to garnering a reported average of 1,200 monthly death threats, Tosh's ability to call the audience to action has yielded the mass vandalism of the show's own Wikipedia article, and has resulted in traffic volumes that have temporarily crashed websites such as CelebrityNetWorth and Comedy Central

Tosh routinely utilizes the show's screen time for promotion of his stand-up comedy tours, merchandise, and other TV shows—prompting Forbes to describe the show as being "as much marketing as "



The first season was a surprise hit, averaging more than one million viewers per episode In June 2010, the season premiere was the #1 show on its timeslot among men aged 18–24 With nearly 2 million viewers, the episode was the most-watched episode of the series This record was quickly broken by the July 7 episode, which had up to 24 million viewers, and the July 28 episode would attract 27 million viewers, again winning the time slot and being the most-watched show on television that day among men aged 18–24 and 25–34 The July 28 episode was the top cable show that night for adults 18–49 Within ten weeks of its premiere, Tosh0 became the second-most-watched cable network show in its time slot among males aged 18–34, a sought-after advertising demographic

In June 2015, Forbes ranked the show's Twitter following of 17 million members as number 43 out of 100 on "The Social 100", its list of the most followed celebrities on Twitter

Critical reception

The show's core premise has been initially compared to that of the perceived competition of E!'s Talk Soup and its since-canceled derivative, G4's Web Soup, The Dish, Sports Soup, and of time-filling viral video mashups on late-night talk shows

Hank Stuever of The Washington Post initially gave a mostly negative review of the June 4, 2009 debut episode of Tosh0 He found Tosh's stage execution to yield a banal, juvenile, and unnecessary "blooper show" serving as a "cheap example of clearinghouse programming" which adds little to a mashup of viral videos but "clutter, buttressed by a lot of stale references" Stuever thought the concept of the series had potential, concluding that Tosh can "hold his own" within the concept of redeeming the Internet and "undoing the fail" Five years later, Stuever reevaluated the show positively as a now long-time fan, and addressed his retrospective regret of his "prematurely dismissive" impression by writing a new review to serve as "a long-delayed Valentine to secret dirty love, Daniel Tosh" He describes Tosh's performance as being the essential self-rationalizing, misanthropic troll who personifies the audience's worst impulses in "a splendid act of pretending to be the guy who enters the world and immediately sets about disliking it" He describes the content as "a digest of shockingly funny, gross or embarrassing moments of terrible decisions and painful outcomes" and Tosh's highly rationalized tone of delivery as hilariously cruel, vicious, venomous, shocking, protective, and occasionally redemptive Stuever says the show's decadent tone is formed around its target audience and its tentatively developing maturity level, "higher learning guiding set of ethics"—calling the show a good place to be, and to make fun of, "a-holes" He describes Tosh0 as "a TV show about the Internet, literally and thematically", with a hilarious use of cruelty "as black as the online soul, and as fleeting and ephemeral", yielding a "blundering exploration of race, class, gender, life"

Kenny Herzog of The A V Club praised the show's "high-wire act of being hysterically vicious and accurate in mocking oblivious exhibitionists without purely bullying" and that the show's "strongest moments of pure hilarity come from its extended, performed material" He describes the show as "continually playing Steal the Bacon for unexploited scraps against the absorbent blob that is viral culture"
