    Oh sure, Britney and Mike would have been so much worser than Whoopi and Rachel Hunter ?

    There's not one person they've got that is A-list !

    Mike Myers is cool. And I think he'd still be considered A list. And give Whoopi more credit. She's become quite the powerful woman in Hollywood, and I respect her tremendously. A hit broadway show (Millie), a hit TV show (Hollywood Squares, although it is loosing its shine now), and some fantastic movie roles (and some not so fantastic), I think she is a good choice.

    But please, Britney? The muppets have better lip syncing then she does!

    Yeah i agree Mike Myers, he is A list but they haven't got him. Whoppi is another like Rosie i don't really like - these type of women are annoying to me, although i do respect the work she's done though what place she has in a Xmas Muppet Movie i just don't know.

    As for Britney, well she can be goofy, and is a big name, would get lots of press - i don't see why not. She is Henson's first female choice for a guest on any new Muppet Show.

    I get the impression that all women without three inch waists, blonde hair, and jiggling juggies get on your nerves.

    (I'm half kidding half serious, but there is some seriousness in there)

    LOL - i know what you mean. To nip this theory in the bud though i do like Roseanne, Ellen Degeneres, and a few other non jiggling types.

    You are certainly half right though - i know its sad and pathetic but those type of woman do catch my eye although my signigicant other is short and indian. I am but a typical demographic with unpredicatable tendencies ! :D

    And I bet your favorite show on Comedy Central was the Man Show right?

    May the lord bless and grant your girlfriend strength!!!!!!! LOL!

    She'll need it!

    I have absolutely no idea what Comedy Central or the Man Show is, but my girl certainly has strength ... she's knocked me about enough. She has this tendency to get things her own way or bash you with a saucepan !

    Comedy Central is a US cable network that carries South Park, and a testosterone driven show called "The Man Show". It's hosted by Jimmy Kimmel (of Win Ben Steins Money fame, and soon to host an ABC late night talk show) and Adam Corrola (of MTV's "Love Line" fame). They both are ugly, out of shape, unattractive uber heterosexual men, who sit around and drink beer and scratch themselves. They also have The Juggies. Girls in tight skimpy clothes that jump around on trampolines at the end of the show, and hang all over the guys the rest of the time.

    It's right up your alley! :rolleyes: ;)

    Gee - what a compliment ! LOL ! It sounds like an interesting format actually (note what i said about trampolines in the other thread). Sounds like the kind of shows i used to work on. I don't sit around drinking bear and i'm in shape, but i wouldn't say no to the Juggies though in TV they always end up being wannanbee presenters on the way up, and when you've seen one you've seen em all.

    I heart the man show. But I guess that could be due to my hormones. Anyways, Scott is most excited about the Jon Stewart cameo. He is one of my favorite comedians and I watch the Daily Show whenever I can.

    yeah, Jimmy Kimmel is too much on the man show. Hey, no love for craig kilborn? I would love to see Pepe or another muppet appear on one of the super late type talk shows like conan or late late show.

    oh yeah! I could definately see the Muppets on Conan! Maybe Pepe can give that dog sock puppet a beating, hehe.
    actually, the Sesame Martians were on Conan O'Brien(sort of)
    Hey, if frogboy or anybody else who can screengrab, I would sure love a screengrab from the elmopalooza dvd where it shows the martians on conan!

    Look, I just gotta say something here...

    Snoop Dogg? SNOOP DOGG? That gangsta-rapping foulmouthed pot-smoking misogynist thug in a MUPPET MOVIE? Lord Almighty, what's going on here?

    They won't allow the Red Hot Chili Peppers on "Sesame Street", but they'll allow a greasy thug like Snoop Dogg in a Muppet movie? So what if he has kids...have you heard some of this guy's lyrics?

    Shame, really...I'll watch anyway, though. You know why? You can't look away from a train wreck! (And I can't believe I'm saying that about a Muppet endeavor)

    I hope they do use guest stars on the new show.. it really brings the characters to life more .. don't cha think?

    Say What?

    The Slate of Stars
    This is about what I had imagined although I thought Kelsey Grammar would be in it. I don't Know what Luke was thinking about with the whole Goldberg thing. Most of us yanks automatically think of Whoopi when the name Goldberg is mentioned and she has worked with the Muppets before. I don't find her annoying but she is a bit dull and over-exposed these days. As for the other stars - I don't find them cheap Joan Cusac is cool and William H Macy is too. And what is this tripping over Snoop Dog? The Muppet Show starred Alice Cooper and Miss Piggy has sung a duet with Ozzie Ozbourne. Adding such a dynamic is nothing nes. I could do without Carson Daly - MTV tool of the bland and uninteresting.

    Scooter's Voice
    Dude, they've replaced all the voices. Kermit, Miss Piggy, Rowlf, Swedish Chef, Fozzie, Statler, Waldorf, Beaker, Sweetums and others have already been adequately replaced. Clash as Scooter? I'd have to hear it to agree with that, however I do hope they replace Janice and Scooter though!

    The Plot
    Has Henson Co. been reading the forum? Great idea!
