    I honestly hope someone can grab this and upload it somewhere tomorrow. I can't watch it on TV, because my parents are being majorly rude, and all the streams I try won't work correctly. I did grab the Muppet Show theme from the stream though, so I guess that's a minor plus.

    It was fantastic. The best part was Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Miss Piggy singing It's Raining Men, one of the most well-known songs of all time!

    I liked it okay. The opening made me want a real Muppet Show!

    The writing, however. Who writes this stuff? Just stale, stale, stale. The Muppets are much funnier than this. Only the Titanic joke made me laugh and that's an old one. Disappointed in that, but loved seeing the Muppets in prime time. Just please Disney - get some better writers on this sort of stuff.

    I haven't seen the full episode yet so I can't really post my thoughts but from those two videos it looks awesome! Especially the opening!

    Great to see Link and Beauregard in the opening that made me smile!

    Great to see the REAL Kermit on AGT. I liked his intro to Howie Mandel: "Someone who was probably a Muppet in a previous life." That's presumably a reference to his voice work on Muppet Babies. Overall, I really enjoyed that appearance. Oh, BTW Rugrats kid, your video clip isn't working. You may want to try to re-upload that.

    Something sounds off about Piggy in the it's raining men song...is it Eric Jacobson? Also, for some reason, it is weird to see all the characters with their rods now!

    It's great that it's already on Hulu. :) Sorry about the broken YT link. :p

    Well, hopefully they didn't pull the same stunt that they pulled during the last
    Muppet appearance at the show, but I see what you're saying. I thought Piggy's voice sounded a bit off too. For that matter Waldorf and Statler sounded a bit high pitched. But it may just be the audio or something like that.

    It's Eric. The notes of the song aren't suited for Piggy's pitch. It was okay. Kind of karaoke sounding, but okay. Fans need to stop freaking out about stuff like that. Frank had off days too. In fact, his Piggy was really low-pitched in the later years.

    Trust me, Piggy was still played by Eric and Statler and Waldorf were still played by Steve and Dave.

    Yeah. I guess Carroll's right. We need to stop freaking out on that. Just because a Muppeteer's voice for a character changes over time doesn't mean it's someone else performing him or her. I think we were all in an uproar after what happened the Muppets appeared on that show, but that's all over and done. We need to move on from that.

    Who wrote for them here?

    Speaking of writers, I still want to grill the "Good Luck Charlie" writers (Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen) for destroying Piggy's character. :mad:
