SERIES

"Tosh.0" - Third Season Premiere

Tuesday, 1/11 at 10:00 p.m.

Daniel Tosh is back to his hosting duties on a new night and time, presenting the good, the bad and the ugly on the Internet. "Tosh.0" features the razor sharp humor and biting commentary from the comedian and delves into all aspects of the Web in this weekly, topical series. Each episode features the segment "Web Redemption," which gives subjects of infamous viral videos (i.e. American Idol Girls and Stuck in an Elevator) a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they've become synonymous.

"Onion SportsDome" - Series Premiere

Tuesday, 1/11 at 10:30 p.m.

Filling in sports' dull, incomprehensible cracks with a solid wall of adrenaline, "Onion SportsDome" is the most-watched news, sports or current affairs programming in the United States. The show remains "the" program for sports news, analysis, scores, highlights, rumor-mongering and petty personal attacks. With its total access and pulse-pounding coverage, it has become nearly impossible to be a sports fan without being a fan of the "Dome." Co-hosts Mark Shepard and Alex Reiser bring the most over-hyped sports coverage on television.

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" - COMEDY CENTRAL Premiere

Monday, 1/3 at 9:00 p.m.

It's Always Sunny on COMEDY CENTRAL with the network's debut of the sixth season of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."
