    Disney and the Muppets

    Does Anybody know when, or even if, Disney will start to play The Muppet Show? :confused:

    Any information given will be helpful!

    Nothing has been announced. It could be awhile before it's back on TV unfortunately.

    I hate to sound like negative neddy, but I seriously doubt that will have any effect. Email/letter campaigns like this generally don't work and are a waste of time and effort, particularly when you're dealing with a network like Disney.

    Actually, quite the contrary. Yes sometimes it does not work, however usually it does. If enough people rally together, it has great influence. For example on Al Franken's controversial radio show on Air America, enough people e-mailed the companies sponsoring the show (General Motors, Hewlett-Packard and Greyhound) with complaints mainly because of one of his regular commentators said that it would be acceptable to shoot the president on the air, which is a felony. It was successful and got them ALL to pull their advertising from the show. The real reason this type of thing does not happen more often is the belief that too many people have that power in numbers is not affective, so hence they don't bother to do it. So go start e-mailing Disney, it's worth doing.

    If they don't watch it they should. Too many are getting bad ideas from prime time television. They should watch that stuff when they're older. LOL

    It would get great ratings in my opinion. I know I'd watch on a regular basis.

    I would too, but would the mass general public is the most important question. I would say it would bring equivalent ratings to some of their late night programming on Disney Channel though. :)

    gee whiz

    I heard somewhere they are going to play some muppet episodes, but they are not going to make it a regularly scheduled program. I believe only on special occasions though. Besides why would they all the sudden after many years improve the website muppetsgo.com? :smirk:

    I am sick of reality T.V. and MTV...and the stupid people on both those channels! There are too many stupid people these days! :attitude:

    And then all the stupid people at school talk about those shows...hmm...and just to type it again- stupid. Like it wasn't in this post enough times. :D

    I doubt it personally there's so many programs on disney
  19. Yeah but there are other channels they could air it on that they own. They could even sell the air rights to another channel.
