Tom Green marks 112th show, blasts mainstream television’s fascination with Anna Nicole

DENVER (AP) ” Dancers in fishnet stockings, an aerial acrobat and band members wearing elaborate costumes surprised Tom Green as he broadcast the 112th episode of his live, late-night call-in show on

Green normally broadcasts from his living room in California, but with the 100th episode long gone, Denver-based ManiaTV brought Green to its studio this week for the 112th and arranged the surprise guests for Green, who improvised his way through an episode that ran nonstop for well more than an hour.

“TV is dead,” Green proclaimed after the scatterbrained episode Thursday. “You can’t do what we’re doing on television.”

Green, who twice had shows on MTV, criticized television for going for ratings, including putting Anna Nicole Smith on the air for years.

“It doesn’t all have to be about the tabloid sensation of the week. You can tune in to mainstream TV to see them talking about Anna Nicole Smith or tune in to my show and see someone worth watching,” Green said.

Estimates about how much water the Upper Colorado River Basin states will use in the future are a problem that needs rethinking, according to the white paper.
