    This wasn't a pilot though. It was a pitch presentation. Like the one Jim did for TMS. That wasn't meant to be seen publicly; this is the same way.

    others In the Forum said it was a Pilot so I just Assumed It was? I would say all the Shots in the Trailer are from the Pilot that will air this September!

    Watch the Comic-Con panel. They specifically say that this will not air on TV. It is also much shorter than a full pilot, so it would not work as an episode. It was shot as a proof-of-concept and was not intended to be an episode in the show, but was meant to set up the type of show that would follow. In the words of Bill Prady:
    "It isn't the show. It is the thing we shot in order to convince ABC to do the show."

    Some pilots do not get aired and are changed and/or re-filmed.

    well Obviously with Disney unveiling this short 10 minute Pilot I was wrong my bad, I am sorry my Muppet Friends but I loved what I saw even though we saw most of the footage in the trailer!!!!!!!!!!!!

    just in case you guys have not seen the Pilot test footage,

    To be honest, what constitutes as a pilot and what constitutes as a pitch are confusing. To me, this was more than a pitch, but not quite a pilot. Pitchilot?!

    if we're not supposed to see it why does a lot of it show up in the commercials and the trailer? are they going to use some of it but not all?

    Because they need footage of the show to advertise the show. And that's the only source.
