    So I was browsing through my tv guide and saw that The Muppets were to appear on CNN around 9:00 my time. According to the guide, the episode is new. Anyone hear about this?

    I don't know. It's not in promotion of the movie, that's done. Well, we'll just have to watch and see.

    On my TV, it's as listed as " CNN Spotlight: The Muppets" and the description says, " The Muppets are the focus." Doesn't give me much info.

    It was fantastic! It would have been nice if they discussed the creation of post-Jim Muppets though.

    Was it basically just Jim era focus? like no mentions of TM2011 and MMW?

    No, it did include TM and MMW. Skipped over the post Henson era though. Ending line made me kind of sad though. "If the sequel clicks, they'll be back for more."

    I don't know about you guys, but it feels like the Muppets are hanging by a thread at this point. :(

    Oh so the only Disney theatrical movies it mentioned then? And how long was it? Im assuming around like 5 minutes.

    The special was about 30 minutes long. The first part of it was about Kermit and Piggy basically, the second part talked about Jim and the history of the Muppets up until his death. The last part talked about the recent movies.

    Wow I can't believe they randomly threw this on us with no promotion or heads up. Hope someone uploads it on Youtube.

    Okay I had some issues with certain parts about Kermit & Piggy in the beginning but that's what happens when your a hardcore fan of theirs...:p Other then that I enjoyed the rest especially the Jim Henson segment. And yeah the part where the girl says "parents aren't complaining to taking their kids to see MMW." It's ashame not ENOUGH parents took their kids but that's a whole other subject. And did they also say Disney tapped Jason Segal for a reboot? Uhh...I think it was the it other way around folks. Although I feel like Fozzie "I don't want this moment to end!!" And finally Terry Crews I love when he said "Kermit is a national icon."
