"Tosh.0" is currently in its third season with 30 episodes airing in three installments (January-March; May-July; September-November) throughout 2011. 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.
