    I'm very sorry if I did come off as rude, I had no meaning to do so. I was just stated my personal opinion about the subject. Once again, sorry.

    I'm okay with Kermit embracing his relationship with Miss Piggy. It's mainly the line/way he's said it. I usually feel that way whenever I hear a basic "you'll always be number 1 to me"-type line regardless of who it is.

    Is it just me or did they completely skip the "best tv moment ever" category? I've been at my computer while watching it and not paying attention to everything. Still, considering most of the nominations being televised real-life events I'm glad it was skipped.

    I did see the special and they did an excellent job. When I noticed Miss Piggy was number #5, my reaction was, "WHAT?" My mom thought my what sounded more like my Piggy impersaion. Seriously! Kermit at number #1 put my mom sort of into tears, but I guess she loves that frog. Well, so do I. I am glad I saw that special. I cannot wait what tomorrow brings for SS.

    I just hated you couldn't vote for both Kermit and Piggy it was so hard choosing between them when I voted but I ended up choosing Kermit. I figured he would've been higher then Piggy. But hey as someone said the people have spoken!

    Wait a minute! Who said, "The people have spoken!" ???

    Someone on here did in reference that Kermit was no. 1

    That's true! So, I will say in reference since he is no. 1 that the frog has spoken. I cannot believe he was #1. It really put my mom into tears of happiness.

    That's something I've wondered about that as well. i always thought :) himself din't want to marry her, but it does seem like there relationship has grown in recent years. Interesting to know that he may consider it some day.
    That was a good save too. He would have gotten a huge karate chop if he hadn't come up with that one.

    I just recently said this wasn't the first time Kermit has said such things. Once in awhile though he'll avoid it but depends on the mood of the interview I think. This one was a little serious so he was able to answer a little more candidly as opposed to other ones where he jokes it off. But I will say lately he doesn't shy away from the question like in the past. Hes been open with his relationship with Piggy ever since the release of the latest film. I'm guessing this is Steve's new take on developing Kermit's character.

    As for the other bit while he may have been under Piggy's threat you could still tell it was sincere. I mean she didn't really force him to say anything. Besides who else but Kermit could calm her down. Lol

    Here's the "Best in TV" Kermit and Piggy clips to watch again and again.

    Even though the Sesame Street characters weren't nominated if you look really closely at the end of the Piggy segment you'll see a photo of the Count in the countdown montage. Whether intentional or not, it's a great little tribute for Jerry. My bride saw this immediately on the first viewing.

    Here are the other winners not on the "Best in TV" show. What do you think of these fan-voted selections?

    The Best Animated TV Series

    The Best TV Theme Song

    The Best Game Shows

    The Best Soap Operas

    The Most Memorable Televised Moments

    I'm really happy that 2 of them were Muppets. I will say they went out of their way to hide the Muppets being puppets, but the fact they basically out and out said ALF was a puppet made me cringe a little. Especially since I hear Paul Fusco goes completely out of his way to hide that fact. Kinda wish they showed a clip of his cartoon series too.

    And I feel I need to comment on the animated TV shows. No real complaint for me, though I hardly call Charlie Brown a TV series through it's specials, but that's just me and I think Looney Tunes should have been number one over the Flintstones... but I totally see what they were going with.

    Yeah. I saw the Count. It was a shame there was no mention of him or any other Muppets, though they did mention on GMA today that "Sesame Street" should have been nominated.

    You're right about that one. If someone like Gonzo had said that, she'd be:

    :mad: Oh, who cares!
    Plus, I hear there's a new ALF movie coming out. I know that's a bit off topic, but I just thought I'd mention it.

    Well, I've noticed it happened even before that. It seems like they have been established as a couple since IAVMMCM. I'm assuming that was around that time.

    I wouldn't totally say that. Before he would hint or admit it once in awhile but then he would say they weren't together and they just had a professional relationship. The difference with it now is is he's been consistent with it.
