Seriously, I’m asking, because I don’t know the answer. It’s not that the jokes aren’t funny—some of them were super funny, although last night’s series premiere was definitely hit and miss. It’s more that this whole concept is just wrong for the freaking Muppets. And then there’s Miss Piggy. Sigh.
What's the next step for the Muppets after their movies? Well, if all goes according to plan, they'll be returning to TV for a brand-new Muppet show. ABC is filming a proof of concept for bringing the puppet actors back to the small screen. Statler and Waldorf already hate it.
