"Muppets" is a new show coming to ABC this Fall.


This is the time of year when TV networks announce their schedules and audiences get first looks at new shows, and today we're getting a glimpse at The Muppets. As reported before, the show is a single-camera comedy told in the style of The Office, with the various characters being followed around and then giving interviews directly into the camera as cutaways. The show is going to be about the creatures making a new network show, and that meta-commentary is there right from the opening frames, with Kermit addressing the entire cast giving them the news about the series pickup. The show will be airing on Tuesday nights at 8PM. -The Verge watch trailer

Apparently the show is supposed to be themed a tad to the adult side, but still fair enough for children to watch. In the newest trailer (I cannot link it at the moment), Kermit did make some sketchy jokes (About the band being happy - legally now, and using the word "living hell", etc.), but it was mostly subtle mild things that will pass over children's heads. The entire cast is back including lesser known muppet characters. The entire trailer honestly had me laughing my butt off, I am so excited for this show. It is also going back to older muppets, which was also a little adult themed as well. We see the muppets in their personal lives, such as Fozzy's love life immplications, or Kermit's "thing for pigs". I cannot wait for this show!!! High hopes for some Infinity figures!

Muppets are a given in DI at some point in the future. I think Disney are trying to reignite Muppet mania slowly but surely. Hoping to get figures for 3.0, but wouldn't surprise if it's limited to Power Discs or unlock able content for now.
Cheers,

I love that they're filming it in the style of Parks and Recreation. That's my favorite live-action show of all time.

I'm excited for this show. I've always liked the Muppets and I love these types of shows (The Office, The Comedians, Modern Family) where the cameras seem to be handheld and where there are cutscenes to one-on-one questioning. With the Townspeople and power discs of the Muppets in Infinity already, I picture this show will bring some figures to Infinity shortly. A Sam Eagle would be awesome, just to have him and Captain America in the same toy box. YOU CAN JUST FEEL THE PATRIOTISM!

How do you guys think of The Muppets on ABC so far? I think it's pretty funny and it's great to see them back on TV. :)

I think it's great so far. Fozzys' scenes have been some of the funniest, I think.

Yeah I am loving this show, I enjoy seeing the more adult side of the muppets
