    Yeah but that's the point, if it was just a movie and not a real origin story, what is the real back story?

    Oh :p Kermit said it was kind of how it happened, so the real backstory is probably similar.

    If the ratings sink more they might renew it for a season 2 on Fridays probably, hopefully this episode the ratings go up to like a 1.5 or at least not drop and stay the same, I hope it does not fall to lower ratings.

    UGH! I do not want this thing to follow that unwatchable, yet constantly renewed "Last Man Standing." I'm trying not to keep my hopes low yet not aiming too far to disappointment level, but if this can just get a renew to second season, or at least somehow outnumber the episodes of the last TV show I'd say things would be fine.

    Like most shows made in the past 10 years, they're trying to build up to something, and if they go too fast, there's a lack of material, if they go too slow, the audience won't care because they know things won't be resolved. I mean, look at Mike and Molly. They married them off too fast, and then the show's popularity petered out too quickly. It's on the prohibition of midseason replacement renewal, and I doubt the show's going to have another season beyond that. The Muppets seem to walk a line between continuity and episodic, and we're only 4 eps in. Seems at least Fozzie's relationship gets a continuity nod next episode.

    Oh, I know they have the technology, but I am guessing she is not at the top of the "To Do" list.

    He also played Droop in the behind the scenes features on The Muppets DVD. He would fit in easily. Or perhaps there is a new character to come that he will be responsible for.

    Linz was asked when Walter will return in a Facebook comment and he said "Eventually".

    It would be better than nothing, and with it going against the World Series tonight, ratings might be hard to look, hopefully not though, and it rebounds from the previous low rated episode, but I do not want to be too optimistic right now.

    I'd imagine the presence of the World Series this week (and possibly next week for a Game 6) would almost make the ratings "not count" in terms of staying on the air. It's not the Super Bowl, but it's an event and that has to skew the ratings lower for all the network shows.

    I don't know. It is pretty easy to watch both since "The Muppets" is only on for a half hour. So I've been switching back and forth as well.

    Apparently episode #7 is titled: Pigs in a Blackout.

    The fact that there is the plural of 'Pigs' makes me think that perhaps Piggy and Denise are going to have some sort of interaction.

    dwayne1115 Well-Known Member

    Yes! It looks like we are finally going to see more of the Kermit Piggy Denise story line. I can't wait to see how that plays out.

    The Muppets is one of the top trending topics on Facebook for being renewed for another season.
