    After watching some of the sneek peeks, I feel like it'd be great if every cold open took place during a meeting (or, if there's no cold open, then start with the Muppets having a meeting).

    This has seriously gone to far, I got so mad at these uneducated idiots that I even reported the moms article for having illegitimate reasons for trying to take down a show. Don't watch it if you do not like it, do not go spoiling other people's times, seriously. But on the bright side, it has gotten good reviews on rotten tomatoes.


    Only 3 rotten reviews on the site.

    One Million Moms is essentially a hate group consisting of waaaaaaaaay less than one million of anything, and definitely not Moms. I'd turn this into a rant, normally, about how they're a group of homophobic theocrats spreading their own brand of Sharia Law (or as it's known "Family Values"), but even here they're dumber and angrier at nothing than usual.

    Watching TV last night, I saw 2 promos for The Muppets. Something I'd not have brought up without the contrast. One promo aired on The Disney Channel during their hour long XD block, the other on [adult swim]. Essentially they want the nostalgic viewers in, but it looks like they want their kids in on it too. I don't see this being less wholesome than The Simpsons. And like I said before, there's a show that's semi-adult and tackles adult themes yet they market the show's merchandising to kids who watch because of Bart and Lisa. That show plays the field of both adult and kid entertainment. Episodes focused on the students are actually pretty kid friendly. If TM was going for anything post cancellation Family Guy (you know, the show where the episode where Lois gets an abortion is considered tasteless, but a baby can impregnate itself with a dog and it's perfectly reasonable to air) level, I'd agree. But Disney's not stupid. This show is going to have nothing other sitcoms on the network won't have. Even in the promos, the most objective thing is very mild cussing. You hear worse at home if someone steps on a nail.

    Betchya One Not Million Not Moms (remember, this is the same group that had a hissy fit over Archie's gay friend) has no problem with Last Man Standing though. And that's far more damaging for kid to see. Adults even.

    Bet they turned a blind eye to Honey Boo Boo and the Kardashians, too.

    Can't we focus on the new Muppet Show here and forget about the political rants and sidetracks of various groups? (Seven of the last 8 posts have been about 1MM) There's so much to be excited about with the new show I'll concentrate my efforts there!!!

    I fail to see why the coerced backstabbing and disgusting sensationalism of reality programming never registers on the "smut" level, yet fictitious material always bares the brunt.

    The obvious can be said, the whole Muppets are all Sesame Street bit. And as we all know, there were plenty of adult nods in the original series. Again, that opening segment in the Raquel Welch episode. But we've talked about this already. Some of the audience is going to be annoyed that this is some baby project and the other parts will be annoyed that it isn't. Hopefully they won't make up too much of the ratings.

    There have been so many bad reviews, seriously I have not seen a single review praising it, the best I have seen is that it is flawed but okay, though I obviously do not trust the reviews.

    Same with me! I haven't seen a single positive review yet. But a lot of the negative things reviewers say is what I want to see. Someone said something like Kermit shouldn't have the troubles of running a show but that's EXACTLY what I want to see. I don't know if people just don't know what to expect or just don't know Muppets in general but maybe they should wait a few episodes before dissing the show.

    Really i think we are worrying abit to much sbout these early reviews.

    On another note I really feel like this is the kind of show Jim always wanted. One that would be for adults,but kids would enjoy it as well.

    Didn't the pilot get rave reviews?

    Sometimes you just gotta wonder. This sounds like another MMW situation where the reviewers are only barely familiar with the concept, want something nostalgic that wasn't really there in the first place, or something else idiotic. If this is the same situation as last time, and it's like "SWEET! The Muppets are back on TV. UGH! No one said it was regularly!" the general public is quite welcome to it's tedious, repetitive NCIS shows opposite it.
