It's not easy being Tom Green today. MTV has abruptly pulled the plug on The New Tom Green Show just weeks after the music channel renewed the late-night talker for an additional 65 episodes. "Despite critical acclaim, [the show] was unfortunately unable to sustain the initial ratings success it enjoyed in its earlier weeks," an MTV spokeswoman tells TV Guide Online. "Tom remains a part of the MTV family, and we look forward to working with him in the future." MTV shouldn't hold its breath: Sources say Green is already shopping the show elsewhere.
