NEW YORK, September 15, 2011 — For the first time ever, “Tosh.0” is taking the show on the road! Colleges from all across the country submitted video entries for months to the “Tosh.0 College Campus Invasion” in the hopes of having their campus chosen. The lucky college selected by Daniel was too cool for school Arizona State University who didn’t even enter. The series will be filming on the campus of Arizona State University with one of the segments to feature Daniel cramming four years of college into one week. The premiere episode of “Tosh.0″ will be taping at the ASU Gammage Auditorium to air on Tuesday, September 20 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT when new episodes return with the second season of hit series “Workaholics” to debut at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Popular segment “Web Redemption,” in which Tosh continues to give subjects of notorious viral videos (i.e. Boom Goes The Dynamite; Naked Wizard) a second chance to redeem themselves from the embarrassment with which they have become synonymous, will be back with more internet epic fails.

• Rapper Eli Porter – Eli gives his millions of fans a return performance of the rap that made him famous.
