MTV keen on getting more ‘Green’

Order translates to 13 more weeks of late night strip

MTV has greenlit more Green.

The music net has picked up an additional 65 segs of latenight talker “The New Tom Green Show.”

Season two order translates to 13 more weeks of the hourlong strip. New episodes bowed Monday.

Since its June 23 debut, “Green” has posted a 30% increase in its timeslot year-to-year, faring far better than its FX competish: 2-month-old 11 p.m. strip “Orlando Jones Show” averaged 240,000 total viewers last month.

“Tom had had a longstanding relationship with our viewers and continues to creatively connect with them,” said MTV exec VP of series development and animation John Miller. “We’re sure the new episodes will continue to deliver outrageous alternatives to many of today’s standard latenight programs.”

Green, Miller and Burt Dubrow are exec producers.

Skein reps the comedian-thesp’s second go-round with the cabler, having previously anchored the wacky sketch-talker hybrid “The Tom Green Show.” Weekly series bowed IN January 1999 and ran for 30 episodes before wrapping in April 2000.

The new “Green,” which premiered in June, airs weekdays at midnight.

Celeb guests have included Marilyn Manson, Seth Green, Tom Arnold, Chris Kattan and Gene Simmons.
