Comedy Central released its midseason schedule Tuesday. Tosh.O, comedian Daniel Tosh’s take on how the Internet brings us a little closer to extinction each day, returns Feb. 5 at 10 p.m. for its fifth season. He will hopefully not be encouraging viewers to commit rape.

Workaholics, a comedy about underachieving young men trying to do anything but their jobs, returns Jan. 16 at 10 p.m.  Jeff Ross, best known for his scathing roast humor, comes back with The Burn Jan. 8 at 10:30 p.m.

The network is hoping to make stars out of two more of its roast favorites: Anthony Jeselnik and Amy Schumer. The Jeselnik Offensive will feature him doing his biting, topical humor on current newsmakers. It starts Feb. 19 at 10:30 p.m.  Jeselnik will also get a standup special Jan. 13. Amy Schumer will tackle love and relationships with Inside Amy Schumer.

Nick Kroll, best known for his role on FX show The League, stars in a sketch comedy jaunt Kroll Show starting Jan. 16 at 10 p.m. Ben Hoffman’s The Ben Show will mix sketches with man on the street bits, premiering Feb. 28 at 10 p.m. It will lead into Nathan Fielder’s Nathan For You, in which the comic uses his business degree and limited life experience to help small businesses.
