Plush, High Pitched Anthropomorphic Animals and Odd Human Representations to Take a Shot at Late-Night Cable TV-- They Cannot Fail!

I think you know what that means. TBS has apparently given the green light to a pilot entitled Late Night Buffet featuring the Muppets. In addition to the obligatory celebs, the cast will be full on Muppet on Muppet action. I can see it now. Fozzie's gonna be all over the stand-up opportunities. Kermie's gonna be all weirded out and professional at the same time. Miss Piggy will be the glory sow. And Scooter will be the stage manager. I will be hanging out with Janice on the tour bus.

Hey. Wait a second? Wasn't that the original Muppet Show? Who cares. It rocked. Honestly though, it sounds kind of like Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and we mean that in a good way.



First Pee-Wee and now the Muppets. What's next H.R. Puffinstuff? One can only hope.

Yep. Let's hope it takes, unlike ALF's failed talk show for TV Land.
