Love him or hate him, be prepared to keep seeing Daniel Tosh for quite some time (I mean, unless you just change the channel). Comedy Central renewed the comedian’s top-performing show Tosh.0 for three more seasons. The announcement came the same day the show’s fifth season ended. “We believe Tosh.0 has the potential to resonate with our audience, and we want to give it time to connect,” said Comedy Central’s president Kent Alterman. It certainly seems to connect with an audience alright, as the modern-day America’s Funniest Home Videos-style show is the #1 entertainment series on television on Tuesday nights this fall among men 18-24, averaging three million total viewers. No one was shocked at an order for another season, but the only other shows on the network that receive multi-season orders are South Park, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report, Comedy Central’s staples.

Tosh seems ready to go for Season 6, which will premiere on Feb. 18, 2014. “I am extremely fortunate and very grateful that I can continue to work with such fun and talented people on a very supportive network,” he mentioned. “Sorry for the lack of snark— I will leave that open for the comments section.”
