I’m not sure I’m ok with Gonzo reimagined as the sad sack fetish weirdo stereotpye character. Gonzo is a weirdo, yes. He has a type (chickens) like Kermit has a type. But leather and straps?
Yeah guys. There’s just so much wrong with that, I can’t even begin. Just….no.
Because running a Late Night Program requires good management.
The Muppets return to the television airwaves next week.

The synopsis for the first two episodes of The Muppets are here, including a listing of all the guest stars and musical acts we can expect to see happen through.
For those who haven’t put the overall plot of the series together, the idea is that Miss Piggy has gotten her own late night series. (Yes, in their world a woman, and a pig for that matter, can host late night TV.) This format is how they get the guest stars to appear, usually as themselves. Unfortunately, this means we won’t see complete acts, like we did in the old vaudeville format, but snippets of the bands and the actors on the late night circuit, mixed with a parody of the single camera comedy type that is personified by The Office.
As for the episodes themselves, check out the synopsis, via BroadwayWorld, below.

The promotional campaign that just won’t quit brings us a new type of Muppet promo this week. Top Fives!
I like this one because it features some Muppets were haven’t seen yet in promotional videos. One of the highlights of the Muppets is the huge nature of the cast. Of course, most of the press focuses on Kermit and Piggy, and to a less extent Fozzie, Rowlf and Gonzo. But it’s good to see the Swedish Chef and Statler and Waldorf get some love.
Below, Fozzie’s Top Five.

The parodies continue! How will Sally handle Cookie Monster? Is there a reason she has a serious case of Hermione hair?
Why is a movie that’s about best friends falling in love have the plot of The Odd Couple?
