"Tosh.O' -- which you have probably never heard of unless you are a guy somewhere past puberty up to the age when you are about to be engaged (forget about watching after you get married) -- just got a three-year pickup. 

  For "Toshies," great news. Even better for host Daniel Tosh. Everyone else beware. This series has, after all, contributed to the diminution of  the mental capacity of millions of males between the ages of 15 and 30, for whom it is a major attraction -- arguably THE biggest hit among them on Tuesdays. (It wraps the fifth season in a few hours.) The sixth season will do even more damage -- thirty episodes will air. 

 Press release quotes: 

Said CC chief of original content Kent Alterman, with tongue planted firmly in cheek,  "We believe ‘Tosh.0’ has the potential to resonate with our audience, and we want to give it time to connect.” Said Tosh, “I am extremely fortunate and very grateful that I can continue to work with such fun and talented people on a very supportive network. Sorry for the lack of snark – I will leave that open for the comments section.”
