Tom Green has signed with AXS TV to host a live one-hour weekly talk show, premiering Thursday, October 3 at 9 PM ET. Richard Belzer is booked as his first guest. The show will feature live video Internet calls from viewers. “Live television works best with an element of danger and when results are unpredictable,” said AXS TV founding partner Mark Cuban. “Throughout his career, Tom has embodied the skill-set you look for in a live performer. Adding the unedited viewer element means that anything can happen. Tom Green Live was exactly the type of show I envisioned when we decided to develop the network as a vehicle to deliver the best in live entertainment.”
Green, a talk-show veteran, has guest-hosted Late Night With David Letterman on CBS, The New Tom Green Show on MTV, and his Internet talk show Tom Green’s House Tonight direct from his living room. He first gained popularity with the groundbreaking Tom Green Show on MTV.
