Earlier this week, just prior to the most recent episode of Comedy Central's hit series "Tosh.0," host Daniel Tosh tweeted the following: "yes the rumors are true. this weeks show will be the last one for awhile. need to figure out what i really want out of life."
But that statement, reminiscent of Dave Chappelle a few years ago, didn't cause quite the uproar among his legions of fans as this one did last night, after he did his weekly live-tweet of the show: "sadly gary mann at comedy central is forcing the show to take a long vacation. still hoping to make 20 more eps this year."
Fans on Twitter were worried: "you can't stop! Where will I get my Internet videos?!" asked Clumseh.
"Is 'long vacation' the same as when my parents took our dog to live at a 'farm'?" asked karlitacupotea.
Dangerl33 demanded answers: "Let me get this straight. @danieltosh is taking a hiatus but @ComedyCentral thought @ItsTheSituation would be funny," referring to "The Situation's" disastrous performance while roasting Donald Trump last night. "Who's making the calls?"
Tilar6 summed up his feelings as "pretty upset."
Not to worry, though, "Tosh" fans. The show will return as planned, starting on May 17 with nine new episodes, according to Comedy Central. It will finish the season with 11 more in September.
So, there are many more web redemptions to come, but you'll have to wait a couple of months.
Are you a Tosh fan? Looking forward to more episodes... or are you over him? Share your view below.
