Where Have You Been All My Life, Daniel Tosh?

I know, I know: Daniel Tosh has been doing stand-up for years, and a quick scan of his Wikiquote page reveals him to be an incredibly funny man.
But now he's got this weekly television show, Tosh.0, featuring our charming host offering up/breaking down "the best of the web!", with a heaping helping of obsessive follow-through.
Case in point: The segment called "Web Redemption", wherein Tosh hunts down notorious viral video "celebrities"—Afro Ninja, that guy who puked during a TV interview—and gives them a chance to redeem themselves. My fave-to-date features Miss Teen South Carolina, whose ridiculous pageant babblings made her an international laughingstock.
Then came Tosh:
|Tosh.0||Thurs, 10pm / 9c|
|Web Redemption - Miss South Carolina|
Aside from being an exceedingly funny man, he's also a bit of a masochist, as seen in this clip where he self-tests several internet memes on himself.
In short: Tosh.O is like the justly beloved The Soup (Joel McHale, swoon!), only devoted to the web, and much weirder, scarier, and funnier. (For instance, Tosh isn't above showing perfectly SFW-but-psychologically damaging crush videos*.) If you like to be lightly upset while you laugh really hard, watch it.
*Featured crush video involves no crushed animals or insects, just bread, hence the title, "How Croutons Are Made."
