Comedy Central pleased with Daniel Tosh, adds new DVD/CD and tour to his series renewal

I'd told you first back on Nov. 20 that Comedy Central had given Daniel Tosh's Tosh.0 a whopping 25-week renewal for 2010, and Tosh echoed as much earlier this month on his Twitter feed. Well, today Comedy Central announced even more details and projects they've got in the works with Tosh, indicating how pleased they are with how the first season of his show about Web videos went.

The release says that the 25-episode weekly order is the Comedy Central's largest renewal ever. Last year's debut season of Tosh.0 averaged 1.3 million viewers per week. The second season will debut Jan. 13, 2010. Furthermore, Comedy Central will shoot a stand-up CD and extended DVD for Tosh, plus sponsor a national stand-up tour for the comedian. Network president Michele Ganeless said: "Daniel is extremely talented, incredibly funny and a perfect fit for our audience. We're excited about the new season of Tosh.0 and look forward to showcasing him on all these platforms." In addition, interestingly, the Comedy Central press release notes the show's particular ratings success among men 18-24 (as if you didn't guess that Comedy Central was geared toward college-age boy-men). As for Tosh, he gave the following quote for release: "Comedy Central is making all my dreams come true, now if they could just cure my disease…technically it's more of an infection."

Speaking of Daniel Tosh, the Internet, and comedy, here's a clip of Tosh blaming Google for his love woes and more, courtesy of The Laugh Factory in Hollywood. Roll the clip!
