It's A Knockout on 'Tosh.0's Web Rematch for Drunken Boxers Austin And J.R. (VIDEO)

Web Rematch, 'Tosh.0'Remember when the "Web Redemption" segments of 'Tosh.0' (Tue., 10PM ET on Comedy Central) were genuinely about giving people a second chance to not make a fool of themselves as they did in the viral videos that made them famous? Well, they're hardly that anymore. Now they're just like funny sequels.

This way works much better. How else would we have gotten to see J.R. training against King Hippo from 'Mike Tyson's Punch-Out'? Unfortunately, all that training didn't do anything to make the fight more exciting. It was another one-punch K.O.

Of course, it was more about the experience, and Daniel Tosh always finds a way to make us one part uncomfortable for every two parts we're laughing so hard it hurts. At this point we can imagine people trying to embarrass themselves on the Internet just so they can maybe score an appearance on 'Tosh.0.'

Tased Phillies Fan Gets Web Redemption on 'Tosh.0' (VIDEO)

Daniel Tosh gives tased Phillies fan Steven Consalvi his Web Redemption on 'Tosh.0'Seventeen-year-old Steven Consalvi made history in 2010 when he became the first person to be tased on the field at a Major League Baseball game. After jumping the fence in the eighth inning of a contest against the Cardinals, he was chased around the field by security before being shot with a taser gun; shortly thereafter he became a YouTube sensation. Tuesday on 'Tosh.0' (Tuesdays, 10PM on Comedy Central), Consalvi got his Web Redemption, and experienced what it's like to be on the other end of the taser gun.

Consalvi told host Daniel Tosh he had already given himself up when he got tased. "I looked around and saw that security guards were getting on the field," he said. "I see a security guard pointing a gun at me with a green tip on it. I had no idea what it was. So I had to call it quits, and I attempted to dive on the field."

For his Web Redemption, Consalvi was given the opportunity to tase a security guard, whose hands were tied. The fictionalized sketch ended with Consalvi tasing the security guard, inadvertently causing his death. Tosh and Consalvi then disposed of the body by putting it in the trunk of a car and pushing it over a (very small) hill. It exploded anyway, action film style, as Tosh and Consalvi walked from the flames victorious.

Web-slingers, rejoice: Comedy Central has ordered up another season of its Internet-centric series 'Tosh.0,' starring comedian Daniel Tosh.

"I am beyond thrilled about Season Three of 'Tosh.0,'" said Tosh in the press release. "Comedy Central has been like a father to me; they pretend to support my comedy and I am pretty sure they have slept with my mom."

The cable network announced that the show's third season already has a premiere date of Wed., Jan. 12, 2011, will contain at least 29 episodes.

Comedy Central wants more Tosh.0

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 16th 2009 5:07PM
One of the biggest surprise hits of the season has been given a chance to make some more surprises.

Comedian Daniel Tosh's Internet snark show Tosh.0 has not only been given a second season, but it's also scored the biggest episode order in the network's history. And it did it without the use of elaborate ventriloquism puppets!

I've actually enjoyed Tosh's venture into comedy cable a lot. It delves much deeper into its subject matter than it has to and has found new ways and formats to make fun of dumb stuff on the Internet. It's America's Funniest Home Videos with a full-time writing stuff.

Tosh.0 vs. Web Soup

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 6th 2009 11:03AM
Daniel Tosh & Miss South CarolinaI remember long ago in a cable land far away when a little show called Talk Soup started. It was clever, riffing on talk show shenanigans. We've come a long way since then, with clip shows blanketing the network. And then there's the Internet. On paper the idea of a web video iteration of The Soup, as it's now called, sounds solid enough, and G4 is a good place for it, but as Michael pointed out, Web Soup just isn't working.

Even though G4 is the place for techie stuff and they handle web videos already, Web Soup still manages to feel outdated and stodgy. And Chris Hardwick, while funny when he fills in on Attack of the Show, is almost mind-numbingly not funny hosting Web Soup. But Chris Hardwick and the gang were not alone in exploring web videos on our TVs. Comedy Central threw comedian Daniel Tosh into the mix with the webbily titled Tosh.0. But which one, if either, is better?
