New Henson GSN show: Late Night Liars

    Hi Guys,

    The Jim Henson Company are developing a new late night gameshow for GSN coming this Summer. The name currently being used is "Never Trust A Puppet" or "Late Night Liars".

    The format is "A late night comedy and gameshow where human contestants face off against 5 outrageous puppets, who also happen to be celebrities and lie straight to their face. Puppets created by the Jim Henson Production Company. Hosted by Larry Miller."

    I think by sounds of it they have taken some inspiration from how Jim made "Muppets" of the Muppeteers, Bernie Brillstein and others and will make them for the celebs on the show.

    Sounds interesting!

    Sounds pretty good but I hate to be a pessimist, but knowing the Henson track record, I don't think we'll hear much else. But this really does have potential.

    An interesting twist from the usual work at JHC.

    Great podcast!

    I'm looking forward to seeing this new series. Shelly Oceans reminds me of Joan Rivers.

    Shelley vs Lucy

    I don't know if anyone has seen AvenueQ? But the character Shelley Oceans looks an awful lot like Lucy the Sl*t from the musical AvenueQ... :confused:

    This looks flippin' awesome! I love the concept, and I think it is high-time for another adult Muppet show. The characters seem well-conceived, and if they get the writing and pacing right, I think this show could last (we'll see).

    I agree that Shelly Oceans looks a lot like Lucy the Sl*t from Avenue Q (great, great show). Also, I love that they have a celebutante on the show, pink poodle Cashmere Ramada. Love the description below:

    "She constantly inserts herself into charities she doesn’t understand, thinking that “Save the Dolphins” was an effort to prolong the amount of time you could keep dolphin meat in the freezer. " LOL! :D

    Hopefully I can watch this on Hulu at some point, since I don't have cable.

    I watched the show, and I love it! It's very funny! They actually showed it twice, but it was the same episode. And I watched it with my brother, and he liked it.

    I'm trying to see if new episodes of this show air on Thursdays at 11:00pm but I'm not having luck finding out.

    I wanna know when the next episode comes on.

    I loved the show! It's definitely fun to watch and I liked the fact that the contestants get to interact with the characters. I wonder who plays that weasel? It sounds a lot like Eric Jacobson to me. Anyway, the weasel was funny as were the others and the fact they added celebrity trivia in the mix is great stuff!
