I grew up watching The Muppet Show. I feel like it was the first step into the world of late night talk shows, only it was for kids. They had hillarious skits, a musical guest, brilliant writers and hosts. It was great. Now it looks like The Muppets are going to be making a return to television.
ABC is putting forth a documentary style series that follow all the muppets in their every day activities. The ups and downs of life and decisions they make, romance, fights, successes and failures included. It sounds like it might be a little darker and probably designed more for nostalgic adults than kids, but i’m pumped for it!
