    The puppets and puppetry look great. If it weren't so scripted the natural improv humor of the performers might shine brighter. The jokes are a little stale and obvious in this clip. It's too early to tell. I hope for the best. :o

    It's Victor Yerrid.

    I forgot to set the DVR for this, but from what I've read on the TP forums, I didn't miss anything special. I'm usually one for swearing/lewdness on TV, so long as it's appropriate (context-wise), not when it's the only way to get a laugh.

    eh it was ok but I was mosyly ZZZzzzzzZZZzzz.
    Perhaps it's the scripted thing, I don't know but I can't stand the host or the mummy.

    I still can't wait to see the next episode! I love the puppets, I love Larry Miller and I love the idea of the game.

    The Weasel has got to be Victor Yerrid's best character!

    I agree with you with the meh-factor, but the Mummy and Larry are my favorite parts for some reason. :confused: I guess it's that they seem more relaxed and less on-the-nose.

    The Mummy (based on that clip) seems to be sort of a Paul Lynde character... maybe?

    I'm not crazy about what I've seen. But I do love that weasel! They should just make it the Larry Miller and Weasel show.

    They're going to rerun it tonight at 3 in the morning. You might want to set the DVR and watch it for yourself. I think you'll find yourself disagreeing with the people at TP.

    I don't know but the old gay stereo type has been done to death recently when it comes to Henson Alternative.
    I just don't think Larry works very well with the characters but I'll watch again just in case it was first episode jitters or something lol
    Pretty much Scooter, and that's already being done on American Dad and it's being done much better.

    So far it seems a little staged and clumsy, but it is the first episode. It will take a while to hit its stride...I'm reserving final judgement for a while.

    I enjoyed the show enough, but honestly I don't see it lastly for very long. I wouldn't mind it at all if I turn out to be wrong on that.

    i agree 100% they need to have the free range

    Aside from The Weasel and maybe a couple or few other bits, I really didn't care for this show too much.

    I'm agreeing with TheJimHensonHour, frogboy, and the "meh-factor."

    I really want to see this, though I don't have GSN. I have a question for those that have seen it, last Thursday, it looked like it was scheduled to run in pairs, ie at 11PM and 11:30PM. Did they show two different episodes?

    No, they didn't.

    I just finished watching the new one, and it was pretty hilarious.

    I loved the new episode. They said that they shot eight episodes of this show so I hope the show gets big enough to shoot more shows.
