“Tosh.0 is a terrific show, marketed creatively,” said Frank Cicha, SVP of programming at Fox Television Stations, in a statement. “I love the scheduling flexibility this deal brings.”

“We’re excited to have the Fox Television Stations on board as the anchor broadcast group and to once again team with our South Park partners at Comedy Central on another absurd, incredibly ingenious series that has such a loyal fan base,” said Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, co-presidents of Lionsgate-owned Debmar-Mercury, in a statement. “Daniel Tosh is one of the funniest and most talented comedians on television today, and we believe his highly rated Tosh.0 will provide the perfect companion to sitcoms.”
