Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s content development and original programming president, made the announcement that Tosh.0 has officially signed on for three more seasons, which will see the show on the air through 2016. Daniel Tosh spoke enthusiastically about the added seasons, “I am extremely fortunate and very grateful that I can continue to work with such fun and talented people on a very supportive network. Sorry for the lack of snark – I will leave that open for the comments section.”
