    I think it may be you. I'm on mountain time and it seems to be running okay.

    Weird. Looks like the trained monkeys that have been frequently messing up the Sesame Street broadcasts on PBS KAET musta got fired and went over to work at ABC 15! Hope they don't start messing up the One Life to Live broadcasts now!

    So what happened during the Swedish Chef part? There was a real long freeze on that one!

    Anyway, last week Extreme Makeover, today AFV. Wonder if Muppets will soon be moving into Wisteria Lane? I know Pepe is lobbying hard to do Desperate Housewives!

    Tom asked him if he served Swedish Meatballs and the Swedish Chef picked up a tennis racket and began to "serve" them. Tom replied with
    "I had to ask"

    That would be interesting. Wonder if they could be on one of the last Lost episodes.

    And they used the "light up" eyes Beaker again. I must say, it looked better than the model used last week in Extreme Makeover

    I only watched the Muppet parts of this show, but they were great! I especially loved the Mayhem as the house band. I mean, they didn't really do anything other than just play the gig, but that was perfect! Everything else was great too, especially the way that the show integrated the Muppets throughout. Keep it coming, Muppets!

    Oh yes, don't you hate it when your local station runs an infomercial instead of the network programme? It happens all the time in Australia, too.

    If they can't have their own show, i'm all for seeing Muppets randomly popping up on ABC shows. Beaker singing on a talent show (not sure which one is ABC's) Miss Piggy strutting her stuff and giving Courtney Cox a run for her money on Cougartown. Gonzo setting new standards in the fashion industry on Ugly Betty. Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem playing a gig at Ultraviolet on One Life to Live - with Animal dating Blair Cramer (a step up from her usual men) and Janice having her hair done at Foxy Roxy's. Bobo as the next Bachelor. Bring it on!

    Not as amusing as the Extreme Makeover appearance, but still very good. Even though they never sang, it was really fun to see the Electric Mayhem serving as the house band. Not sure why that so cool, but it really made the episode for me. It's just a shame that we didn't see Gonzo anywhere. Oh well. Another fantastic appearance!

    Gonzo planned to join everyone onstage but he got enchanted by the screening/editing room discovering inspirations for his new acts.

    I loved the scene where pepe thinks that the shrimp in the video clip was his cousin and the frog translating scene. Goof: When Kermit was talking on the cell phone, his rod was on his arm instead of his hand.

    How was that a goof? It must have just been in his arm for easier movement for Steve. That's not a goof. :smirk:

    Agreed Prawncracker. :)

    By the way, I really enjoyed the Muppets on AFV!

    I may have said it before somewhere else, but its awesome that the Muppets have been doing so much lately.

    I'll take it!

    The wedding clip WAS gross, lots of funny clips though, I forgot how funny this show could be. Glad to see it was all croch shots and people hurting themselves.

    The Muppets were GREAT! It's so good to see them pushed so much!

    Keep it coming! :)

    What part of the weeding clip was gross? I thought Piggy looked great in the wedding dress!

    They mean that one of the wedding video clips they showed was gross.

    Wow- sounds like a great appearance by the Muppets! (as always!):) I'll have to catch it online sometime.

    First of all, HI! It's so great to see you!

    Second of all, I cannot WAIT for someone to get these clips online so I too can join in the fun of reviewing!

    :mad: I KNOW! It's a pain it the rumpus! :mad:

    I know it's a little late now, but did you know that they replayed it at 12:30? :confused:

    I taped it, but I haven't watched it yet.

    Sadly only was able to catch the Beaker/Bunsen part, which rocked.

    Post when this has been uploaded as a torrent, file upload, or put on youtube!

    I really did like this, but it's true... it DID need more muppet content. But we sure got some great stuff. Not just the usual Piggy Kermit stuff (we only got a little of that, Thankfully), but we got the Chef making Meatballs and bouncing them off a tennis racket, the Mayhem as a house band (pitty they didn't talk. Wonder why they couldn't have just kept them silent for MT and do the same thing more often), and smoke from the ears Beaker.

    All and all, a reason for watching a show I make it my business to avoid.
