At War with G4?

Daniel Tosh, host of Comedy Central's Tosh.0, is easily one of the funniest dudes on television. If you haven't see his show, you are missing out. (Tuesdays @ 10pm) However, comedians these days aren't worth ANYTHING unless they're pissing off SOMEONE, and that list continues to grow for Tosh.

First there was some beef brewing between Tosh and Conan, followed by murmurs of bad blood with Dane Cook. Most recently there's been negativity flowing out from the G4 camp, particularly (allegedly) by way of Chris Hardwick, Attack of the Show regular correspondent, and host of G4's Web Soup. Maybe it's all just friendly rivalry? As both shows have a similar format, they can't help but draw comparison, leaving it to fans to take sides as to who's better and start slinging stones in defense of their preference.

But then last night on Tosh.0, there were several pointed jabs thrown at G4. Target # 1: It's flagship program, Attack of the Show (Weeknights @ 7pm). Daniel performs a short clip, blatantly mocking a regular AOTS segment they call "What Happens Next?"

Later on, Tosh couldn't help but fire a few more barbs at former AOTS host Olivia Munn (whom I love), just for the sake of doing so.

I don't particularly agree with everything Tosh says about Munn, but it was still funny. And coming out of left field like that, it also lends proof that this feud may be more than just alleged ... Which I whole-heartedly support! I'm actually a fan of BOTH houses, but I wonder if the G4 crew really knows what they are up against if they choose to fire back. Either way - I'll be watching!
