NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2010 -- COMEDY CENTRAL viewers are about to get way better presents than Santa could ever bring! That's because COMEDY CENTRAL's Winter 2011 bag is filled to the brim with brand spanking new comedy. From new series ("Onion SportsDome," "Workaholics") to returning series ("South Park," "Tosh.0," "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents," "John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show") to new stand-up specials ("Denis Leary and Friends Present Douchebags and Donuts," "Daniel Tosh: Happy Thoughts" and others), COMEDY CENTRAL is the best place to tune in and warm up by laughing in the chilly months to come.

The following are descriptions of new series, specials and returning series premiering this Winter:

JANUARY 2011

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" - COMEDY CENTRAL Premiere of Season 6
Premieres Monday, January 3 at 9:00 p.m.
The gang from Paddy's Pub is back with a sixth season of misadventures. Crude, controversial, outlandish, and downright hilarious, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" stars Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito and features the cast as self-centered owners of Paddy's Irish Pub in Philadelphia who will do just about anything, no matter how reprehensible, in an attempt to better their own situation.

"The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" - 16th Season Premiere
Premieres Monday, January 3 at 11:00 p.m.
The Emmy(R) and Peabody(R) Award-winning "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" takes a reality-based look at news, trends, current events and politics with an alternative point of view. In each show, anchorman Jon Stewart and his team of correspondents, including Samantha Bee, Wyatt Cenac, Jason Jones, Aasif Mandvi, Olivia Munn and John Oliver, comment on the day's stories, employing actual news footage, taped field pieces, in-studio guests and on-the-spot coverage of important news events.

"The Colbert Report" - 7th Season Premiere
Premieres Monday, January 3 at 11:30 p.m.
Emmy(R) and Peabody(R) Award-winning "The Colbert Report" contains the personality, insight and overall rightness of Stephen Colbert. That's why he has a half-hour platform each night to give his take on the issues of the day and, more importantly, to tell you why everyone else's take is just plain wrong. What "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" is to the evening news, "The Colbert Report" is to O'Reilly/Scarborough/Hannity/Anderson Cooper, et al... except Colbert's show is intentionally funny.

"Tosh.0" - 3rd Season Premiere
Premieres Tuesday, January 11 at 10:00 p.m.
New night, new "Tosh.0"! The third season of COMEDY CENTRAL's smash hit is now on Tuesday nights and Daniel Tosh is ready with hilarious commentary on puking, nut shots and embarrassing videos. The Internet is no longer safe (was it ever?)... especially when Tosh gets his hands on YOUR video.

"Onion SportsDome" - Series Premiere
Premieres Tuesday, January 11 at 10:30 p.m.
What do you get when you mix the world's #1 comedy channel with the world's #1 comedy news publication? "Onion SportsDome." COMEDY CENTRAL's brand new sports show brings viewers hard-hitting hilarity from the sports they know and love. Anchors give in-depth coverage on the athletic world's most compelling stories... and some that aren't so compelling. With features like "Who Would You Kill?" and "The Wish Zone," "Onion SportsDome" will surely become the new favorite half-hour of sports television.

"Denis Leary and Friends Present Douchebags and Donuts" - COMEDY CENTRAL Original World Premiere Stand-Up Special
Premieres Sunday, January 16 at 10:00 p.m.
Denis Leary, the notorious Golden Globe-nominated star of "Rescue Me," returns to his stand-up roots with this provocative one hour special taped live at NYC's Town Hall. Not since "No Cure for Cancer" has Leary unleashed his trademark foul-mouthed rants quite like this. Along with COMEDY CENTRAL rising star and roaster Whitney Cummings and his "Rescue Me" costars Lenny Clarke and Adam Ferrara, Leary dispenses a blistering one-two punch to douchebags everywhere and delivers the comedy event of the new year.

"COMEDY CENTRAL Presents" - 15th Season Premiere
Premieres Friday, January 21 at 11:00 p.m. & 11:30 p.m.
How DOES the network do it? Returning in its 15th season, "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents" is sharper, funnier and more hilariously irreverent than ever. Filmed in New York City with today's hottest young comedians, viewers are sure to rock with laughter in back-to-back new episodes every Friday night at 11:00 and 11:30 p.m.

"Nick Kroll: Thank You Very Cool" - COMEDY CENTRAL Original World Premiere Stand-up Special
Premieres Saturday, January 29 at 10:00 p.m.
In his first one hour stand-up special, rising star Nick Kroll ("COMEDY CENTRAL Presents," "The League," "I Love You, Man") blows the doors off the time-honored one hour format by weaving in hilarious short films, as well as appearances by his infamous characters Fabrice Fabrice, Bobby Bottleservice, El Chupacabra and Oh, Hello (featuring John Mulaney, of "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents" and "Saturday Night Live"). This seminal comedy event marks the arrival of an exciting new voice in stand-up and is definitely not to be missed.

FEBRUARY 2011

"Patrice O'Neal: Elephant In The Room" - COMEDY CENTRAL Original World Premiere Stand-up Special
Premieres Saturday, February 19 at 10:00 p.m.
In brutally hilarious fashion, Patrice O'Neal reveals the unspoken truths about the value of white women, cheating, safe sex and the need for an official Harassment Day in his first original one-hour World Premiere stand-up special. Known to many from XM Radio's Opie and Anthony Show in addition to being a longtime COMEDY CENTRAL favorite ("Shorties Watchin' Shorties," "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn"), O'Neal gets away with saying what viewers didn't dare to think.

MARCH 2011

"Daniel Tosh: Happy Thoughts" - COMEDY CENTRAL Original World Premiere Stand-up Special
Premieres Sunday, March 6 at 9:00 p.m.
Star of the hit series "Tosh.0," Daniel Tosh is back with his first-ever COMEDY CENTRAL World Premiere stand-up special. Since he's already taken on the Internet, he's now out for everyone else.

APRIL 2011

"Workaholics" - Series Premiere
Premieres Wednesday, April 6 at 10:30 p.m.
From the minds of the hilarious and irreverent Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy, "Workaholics" is a workplace comedy featuring three friends who work together from 9 to 5 and live together from 5 to 9. Dress codes, deadlines and rising before noon are not things these guys are used to. Their brains are stuck on college cruise control and now they're trapped in an office environment with "grown ups." Together they're a three man spring break, they do their jobs and sometimes they even do them well, but they show up late, leave drunk, play pranks on one another and bend all the rules. They live for the day... even if they don't know what day it is. "Workaholics" stars Adam Devine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson and is executive produced by Kevin Etten ("Scrubs").

"South Park" - 15th Season Premiere
Premieres Wednesday, April 27, at 10:00 p.m.
It's hard to believe COMEDY CENTRAL's animated hit "South Park" is entering its 15th Season. Celebrities have been offended, Kenny has died, Cartman has been manipulated and the boys have saved the town too many times to count. Help COMEDY CENTRAL celebrate "South Park's" milestone by tuning in to Season 15 and enjoying what the boys will do next.
