AXS Orders Third Season Of Tom Green Live

L.A.-Based Talker Gets New 13-Episode Order

AXS TV has put in an order for a third round of 13 episodes of the comedic, live talk show Tom Green Live. AXS added the new talked to its Thursday-night lineup this past October.

The second season ends today (April 3) after an episode featuring Dr. Drew Pinsky. The show's third season will premiere on Thursday, June 12, in its regular 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET time slot.

Guests on so far have included Richard Belzer, Howie Mandel, Artie Lange, and Andrew Dice Clay, as well as skateboarding master Tony Hawk. In season two, Green drank whiskey and chewed tobacco with esteemed newsman Dan Rather; reunited the high-flying comedy duo Cheech & Chong (Cheech, pictured above, arrived late, after a commercial break); and visited with Dancing with the Stars favorite Andy Dick and Saturday Night Live legend Norm Macdonald. His parents, Richard and Mary Jane, who have frequently been a part of Green’s comedy throughout his career, also appeared on the show, AXS said.

Green also invites fans to use Skype to call in and chat, live and uncensored. Other season highlights have included Green documenting his epic misadventures in Los Angeles, where he bought a 1979 Z28 Camaro that keeps breaking down and then asked viewers to send him cassettes to play in the vehicle’s retro tape deck. He has also sent garden gnomes around the country, asking fans to take pictures with it, before passing it along, the network said.
