    Some of you were talking about Hollywood Squares so I was checking out their Web site. Kermit is scheduled to appear in new episodes next week.

    Looks like Whoopi has been replaced in the center square with Brad Garrett.

    Set your VCR's and let us know what you think about Kermit's appearance.

    His appearance is already generating laughs. Get a load of this from his Hollywood Squares "bio":

    "With no signs of slowing down the massively successful Frog franchise is seeing a different kind of green, money."

    Yeah, it's so "massively successful" the company is up for sale. And everybody knows it. Who writes this garbage? And whom do they expect to believe it?

    Totally. I mean no other show regularly has Muppets from ALL THREE major franchises...Muppet Show, Sesame, and Bear in the Big Blue House. Even Rosie couldnt pull that off. I will say though, itll be hard to top Holywood Square's 2002 Muppet lineup.

    I was hoping somebody would post something about Kermit being on the show. I'm looking forward to watching it. By the way, Whoopi hasn't been on "Hollywood Squares" all this season. She left at the end of last season, so their center square keeps changing from time to time. I think Kermit deserves to be the center square. That way he'd get picked more often. And he's much cooler than Brad Garrett. (AKA, the man who can't tell Big Bird from Joanna Worley. Lol.)

    Melissa and I were saying they should have a week where it's ALL Muppets in the "Squares"....there should be enough performers to fill nine boxes with characters from The Muppet Show, Sesame Street, Bear, and others, right? You could even bust some Fraggles out of retirement if you need to!

    Each muppet character (with the exeption of larger ones) uses the exact same square as the last. Was that the only one designed for puppeteers or something?

    Oh, that would be the ultimate! Unfortunately I think Family Feud was the last time(least for now) youll see so many Muppets all on one show. Logistics, schedules, etc would prevent this. But I agre...that would be pretty awesome!

    Also there was a rumor/fan idea for a Muppet episode of the Weakest Link when it was popular on NBC. Now that would have been something!

    I think that would be a good idea. After all, the Muppets haven't been on the squares all season (Unless you count that annoying dog Triumph) so that would be a good idea. Especially, since Whoopi's no longer the center square. They could put Kermit in the center. Some other squares could be Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Waldorf & Statler. And maybe it could change every day during the week since it would be hard for Muppets with the same performer to be on at the same time. (Remember that week Big Bird and Oscar were on the show. They couldn't be on the same day since Carroll Spinney couldn't play both of them at one.) I'll try to think up some more ideas. Another thing, I've noticed is that when the Muppets are on the show, they don't get picked as often as I thought they would. It seems like for some strange reason the contestants on the show aren't that into Muppets. (Well except when Miss Piggy was in the center with Whoopi. They should do something like that more often.)

    I think Kermit may be cohabitating the Center Square this week with Brad Garrett...that's what the commercial made it sound like, anyway.

    And I thought the Muppets were picked VERY frequently, considering they really have a less than 1-in-9 chance of being picked strategically. And I love how the audience cheers whenever a Muppet is picked.

    By the way, Gonzo, in response to your idea about having all Muppets on the squares. I have been working on a transcript of something like that. I tried to make it so it changes from day to day. (Since the performers probably wouldn't be able to play more than one of their characters online) Anyway, if I think my script is good enough maybe I'll post it here. But I can't make any promises. My schoolwork may keep me too busy to do that this semester. But this is something I thought I'd try.

    Congratulations to Palisades! Kermit talked about the action figures during today's Hollywood Squares. The Kermit figure and camera were there with him throughout the show. Kermit made a joke about them too... "Why do you call these things action figures if it just stands still?"

    Is "Hollywood Squares" in the morning where you live? I get it in the evening so I'll probably have to wait for tonight's show to see the part with Kermit talking about the action figures.

    It's in the morning. The show in syndicated, meaning it airs on different stations at different times in various parts of the country.

    People can check here for local times in your area...

    Thanks, Phil, but I know what time it's on in my area. I was just a little surprised because I didn't think any stations ran those game shows in the morning.

    Wow, if I'd found out sooner I'd have gotten yesterday's (Monday) show. Would someone like to trade that?

    With the way the cameras pan down, that's the only square where you won't see the performer (although I could be wrong).

    They don't show Hollywood Squares in my area. So if anyone watched could you please tell me, did Kermit get questions about Sesame Street, frogs, or pigs? (the ol' Hollywood Squares standard for Kermit)
