    The show already started... Piggy did an intro bit with the Tonight Show's female computer reminiscent of the Al 1999 Plus Tax from Muppets Tonight.

    Piggy: Who will be appearing on the Tonight Show tonight?
    Computer: Miss Piggy, Mickey Rork, and Newt Math.

    Piggy: When will Moi's new movie come out?
    Computer: November 23.
    Piggy: This thing's always right! Who's the female star from the new Muppets' movie?
    Computer: Amy Adams.

    Suffice to say, Piggy loses it and starts attacking the machine.

    More on her appearance later.

    Wow! Did she look amazing! Great hair, and very nice, um, enhancements. Jay seemed suitably impressed. I thought the skirt was a little sedate for her, but they showed some photos from the In Style spread and they showed the "You've been replaced" clip from The Muppets. She seemed marvelously self-assured and confident in her audience reaction. Yay!

    I DVR-ed this and just watched it! I loved the clips of the classic Muppet films! I think Miss Piggy looked absolutely gorgeous, but I was hoping she'd be in a shorter skirt or something, the red skirt didn't do it for me.

    And I especially liked the fact that Miss Piggy mentioned that she and Kermit have ever lasting love <3 Kermit/Piggy for the win :)

    Piggy just wrapped up her bit with Jay.

    They introduced her with the following clips:
    1 I Will Always Love You from the Muppet Babies segment from TMTM.
    2 When Benjamina and Smollet reunited from MTI, talking about Captain Flint, I'm sure everyone knows the scene.
    3 Miss Piggy's Fantasy from TGMC.

    The clip from The Muppets they aired was the same one with her confronting Miss Poogy they aired on Monday during WWE Raw.
    Jay talked to Piggy about how she keeps young... Piggy explained how she doesn't show signs of wrinkles because her people donate the collagen used for all those surgeries.
    Jay then talked to Piggy about her In Style magazine shoot and some fake outfits... He asked her about the ring that thanks to Aunt Ru we now as BK, and another shot at Kim's failed marriage was taken by the diva.
    Jay asked Piggy about Lady Gaga and if Piggy wasn't upset about her fashion sense showing Piggy the frog suit. Piggy said it doesn't bother her. Jay tried to explain it as faux frog. Piggy said she believed him, because when she wears frog it's the real deal. Also of note, Piggy said she had one of those world-tracking chips into Kermit so she knows where he is at every moment.

    Mickey Rork's on now... He asked if he could touch Piggy... She followed up with the quip that "they're real".

    Whoo-hoo! Piggy was awesome tonight... I can't help but wonder if Eric still gets nervous on live TV, because Piggy's overall movements and everything seemed a little stiffer than usual, but her appearance was great, and funny too, very tongue-in-cheek, especially when commenting on her bust, :laugh: Also loved going through her spread, and Leno asking of the shoe pic she did if that was really her, or Nancy Grace on DWTS. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Great interview, I loved it. I'm finally starting to get used to Piggy's voice. The first couple times I heard it, it sounded really off.
    I loved the comment about how she has Kermit microchiped. Also loved "when I wear frog, it's the real deal."
    All the clips were awesome. At first I though they were gonna do a spoof or something. Loved seeing the old clips.
    I think the clip of the movie looked promising.

    I thought the appearance was great! Piggy looked great (although like others I really didn't like the long red skirt, but I guess it was there for practical puppeteering purposes). I loved that they showed a montage of her work and the audience reaction was awesome! I also loved the bit where she came out and Jay kissed her hand- Eric has been doing really detailed facial expressions for Piggy really well.

    She did a good job during her main interview- it's not quite at the level of awesomeness that she used to be when Frank did interviews on the Today show, etc, but it's getting there! Loved the "enhancement" bit- perfect amount of risque for late-night. I really loved the audience reaction when Jay said that they are glad to have her back on the big screen!!!

    and then...Mickey Rourke.....what a jerk!! I cannot believe that he called Piggy an "it" and then literally groped her!!! Eric handled it great given the situation since it was live TV, Piggy had a nice tongue-in-cheek comment and all the while Mickey just looked like an idiot and a jerk. I really wished that a different guest star would have been there so Piggy could have had more back-and-forth with them but with Mickey any reaction is kind of limited because of him being the nut-job that he is!!!

    All-in-all, great appearance and I can't wait to see more!!!

    LOOOOOOOOOOVED IT! Eric is AMAZING! He's my favorite puppeteer. :mad: Loved the plastic surgery jokes -"her people donating collagen" was fantastic.
    Miss Piggy is a class act.

    Cool! Thanks Phillip. I never saw the bit with Rourke, I kinda wanted to see what all that was about.

    Seriously...TERRIBLE guest star pairing! But Eric handled it well enough. Did anyone else have the impression that the voice/mouth movement for Piggy was just the slightest bit off? Wondering if that was just my crappy station's feed or if it really WAS a little off!

    LOVED the "wearing REAL frog" comment. And the collagen joke. And the audience reaction.

    Yea I noticed that a little too. For the most part it worked though so it didn't bug me too much. I think it goes back to what D'Snowht mentioned about Eric still getting use to live TV.

    Brad Paisley accidentally touched Miss Piggy's "enhancements" during her CMA awards appearance. He was apologetic about it though- guess Piggy's enhancements are really working for her, lol!
