    New episodes tend to go to air with either fewer commercials, or they let it run over the alloted timeslot a tad, it all just depends. Once they go to reruns, however, they'll experience minor trims of dialogue, inserts, camera shots, what have you to condense them down to make room for more commercials. Most shows on TV run anywhere from 18 to 21 minutes, however I think many shows still produce episodes up to 22 minutes; the infamous "Yada-Yada-Yada" episode of SEINFELD actually originally ran 26 minutes - and that's how long shows used to be without commercials back in the 60s and 70s.

    Does it still run at 26 minutes with today's overload of commerical breaks?

    Nah, like I said, once they go to reruns, they usually get trimmed down to 21 minutes. However, now that commercialism is reducing shows down to 18-20 minutes, I've noticed rather than cut shows up even more, they're starting to speed them up (without affecting the pitch of the audio, thankfully - the first 3-4 seasons of the 80s Chipmunks cartoon are sped up to the point they sound like PAL broadcasts) - especially older shows that had main title theme songs, those are definitely being sped up.

    It's ironic, because I remember a few years ago suggesting networks and channels do this to avoid cutting shows up; watching an uncut older show that ran for 26 minutes with the Rapid Play feature on the DVD player, I've found that they run for about 17 minutes. I guess the same could be said for hour-long shows: back in the day, they used to run 48-52 minutes without commercials . . . now they run 41-43 minutes without commercials.

    I guess dr. teeth listens to aerosmith which doesn't bug me at all. lol
    you know sometimes I wonder if uncle deadly is the team dad for piggy sometimes. just how he tried to help her feel better and when he was trying to keep fozzie from talking about the break up.

    Not to be a Debbie Downer, but the ratings are the same as last week. Not back up. It has a demo share of 1.1. At least it didn't drop, but it's not amazing.

    Hopefully the spring return will kick it up a few notches. If it can get anywhere between a 1.7 or a 2.0 would be enough to secure things.

    @Daffyfan2003 I want a like button for your signature! :D

    I honestly prefer watching it on any website but ABC; the ABC player is crap, no commercials, no buffering times...

    That's giving me a lot of popups. I usually watch the episodes here: http://putlocker.is/watch-the-muppets-tvshow-season-1-episode-10-online-free-putlocker.html

    Decided to watch this episode while taking a study break from looking over the stuff for the final exam I have tomorrow...

    BIG MISTAKE

    and here's why: This episode had everything, I was entertained, I smiled at wonderful jokes and timing and then there at the end I was a sobbing mess! Strangely enough, I am feeling rather broken hearted over the Kermit and Piggy thing and my boyfriend is at work so, I can't bug him to drive his car over to campus real fast to give me a hug lol.

    But, maybe there is hope for a Kermiggy reunion in the future?

    It doesn't even need that much, if it can just be flat at a 1.3-1.4 it will likely get a renewal.
     
  13. My review on Single All the Way:

    I just wanna say that this really makes it another great episode of The Muppets of the season, especially with Christmas around the corner.

    Here are some highlights I found to be entertaining:
    • Animal eating the tinsel meant to used for the Christmas tree. :halo:
    • Bunsen and Beaker believing to be a Reindeer sketch, with Beaker being Rudolph, but later to be used for Holiday fun. :confused::eek:
    • Fozzie's breakup with Becky, but later getting back with her, thanks to Piggy.:o
    • Mindy Kaling and Piggy singing "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" but Mindy singing badly; with Janice and Floyd commenting her performance; But get this, Mindy thought the Electric Mayhem played badly, which made me say "say what?!" At least she gave the band a good review on their energy and outfits. And she loves the band. I thought the band was great; she's in denial. :D:sing::flirt::cool::halo:
    • Big Mean Carl's take on "The Night Before Christmas" really cracked me up. Can't stop laughing everytime I watch that part.
    • Yolanda rigging the Secret Santa so she can get all the gifts, since she was left out last year, until the crew caught on and realized her situation and they forgive her, especially Rizzo.:shifty:
    • When Uncle Deadly said "gah, women", "gah, men".
    • Kermit and Piggy talking about their past love life, which made me had doubts for a while, since he's now with Denise.:):mad:
    • Sam still trying to win Janice's affection with the help of a mistletoe.:flirt::attitude: She later kisses him on the cheek in the end, which made Sam very happy. I'm still for Janice and Floyd.:flirt::sing:
    • Echosmith playing at the Christmas party, and Gonzo confusing them with Aerosmith, with Dr. Teeth correcting him. Thanks, doc. :D:concern:
    So far, the first 10 episodes of The Muppets have been a real entertaining highlight of the year. As i'll be waiting for the remaining episodes of season 1 to air in February, the only question on my mind is: what will the future hold?

    sorry, dramaqueen, I didn't get the popups when I went on the site. probably because I use an addblocker.

    The subtle things are hilarious. Like when Yolanda said "There are receipts in these, right?", and Beaker replies "me, me mo".

    I'm beginning to like Yolanda more after this. she left a meh impression before but now I'm warming up to her. My only disappointment for this episode was kermit and piggy not getting back together.

    Yea but the show is just starting to air in the UK so lets see how it does over there.

    That is the same rating. The offical rating hasn't been posted yet, which is why there is an asterick, a 1.06 is the same as a 1.10, both numbers round up to a 1.1 in the ratings, when the offical number is released, it will be in the 1.05-1.14 range, still a 1.1 though. The uptick in viewership is positive I guess, nothing much, the good thing is the muppets didn't fall below a 1.0 in the ratings, that spells doom for most shows, hopefully it can regain some audience when it returns.
