Christmas comes early for comedian Daniel Tosh.
Comedy Central has announced that the comedian’s show, Tosh.O, has been renewed for three more seasons.
Comedy Central’s president Kent Alterman shared, “We believe ‘Tosh.0’ has the potential to resonate with our audience, and we want to give time to connect.”
And Daniel Tosh is more than happy about the news. He said, “I am extremely fortunate and very grateful that I can continue to work with such fun and talent people on a very supportive network. Sorry for the lack of snark – I will leave that open for the comments section.”
The new season of Tosh.O will premiere on Comedy Central on Feb. 18.
Bill Cosby is currently working on a new family-oriented television series.
The funnyman told Yahoo TV that he has teamed up with Cosby Show producer Tom Werner to created a family comedy that “would [satisfy] the people who have come to me in public places and said, ‘Can’t you put something on that I can watch?'”
Cosby made it clear that the show would not be a Cosby Show remake, but would focus on older kids and their relationships with their parents.
“I want to be able to deliver a wonderful show to [a] network,” said Cosby. “Because there is a viewership out there that wants to see comedy, and warmth, and love, and surprise, and cleverness, without going into the party attitude.
“They would like to see a married couple that acts like they love each other, warts and all, children who respect the parenting, and the comedy of people who make mistakes. Warmth and forgiveness. So I hope to get that opportunity, and I will deliver the best of Cosby, and that will be a series, I assume, that we could get enough people week after week after week to tune in to, to come along with us.”
In other news, Cosby will headline his first TV concert special in 30 years. The special, called Far From Finished airs on Comedy Central on Nov 23.
James Franco is about to be the butt of a few jokes.
Comedy Central has decided to choose the young heart-throb to roast during their annual CC Roast.
The Winter’s Bone star nonchalantly took to his Instagram account to announce the news.
Franco wrote, “Hey y’all, what’s up? I’m gonna get roasted on Comedy Central. Be sure to check it out. They wanted me to tell you that — alright, hahaha.”
Comedy Central then confirmed the news via Twitter, writing, “The announcement of @JamesFrancoTV’s @ComedyCentral Roast was not a drunk tweet or a dream. It is happening! #FrancoRoast.”
No word on who the roasters or MC of the event will be.
