ABC’s “The Muppets” – Yay Or Nay?

Muppets Manhattan

I have always been a BIG fan of the Muppets – when I was a kid, I used to beg my parents to take me to Blockbuster to rent the video (yep, as in a video store full of VHS tapes) of “Muppets Take Manhattan” every weekend – and most weekends they obliged, because who can resist a movie full of snarky, hilarious puppets – with a happy ending? I know I can’t!

Well, for those of you who don’t know – THE MUPPETS ARE BACK! They have a new half hour sitcom on ABC, and the premise is they all work on the show “Up Late With Miss Piggy” – a late night talk show where Miss Piggy is the host, and Kermit is the executive producer – with all the characters working assorted roles within the television studio. It’s very similar to the show “The Office”, and also reminds me a bit of Modern Family

Here’s the thing….I really, really WANT to love this show. I love all the components – Muppets? Yep. Modern family/The Office dry wit/humor? Yep. Anything the Muppets do? Yep – love that too. However. I really don’t love the show. It has it’s funny moments, but I feel it’s trying too hard to be funny, and they are also having WAY too many celebrity guests on each episode. Obviously they need guests on Miss Piggy’s “talk show” – but they are stuffing way too many celebs into each episode.

I will continue to watch it, in hopes that maybe there are some funny holiday themed episodes coming up that might make me change my mind…but for now? I give it a solid B-, it’s fine, not great, but I think it can have some potential and room to grow into something great (and I hope it does before the network cancels it!)

I would love to know YOUR thoughts on this new show – do you love it? Hate it? Tolerate it? Let me know!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney’s Christmas Day Parade

All of us have Holiday traditions – they are part of what makes the holiday season so special! My family always opens one present and watch Elf on Christmas Eve, and one of our Christmas Day traditions is watching the Disney Christmas parade, it’s full of Disney characters, special celebrity guests, and it’s so cheerful and Christmas-y it’s guaranteed to put a smile on even the biggest Scrooge’s face!

This year’s parade was taped in late November/early December at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, and will be hosted by Mario Lopez in California, and Maria Menounos and Nick Cannon in Florida. Entertainment includes the Backstreet Boys, Pitbull, Colbie Caillat and more!

It will air on Christmas morning on ABC, so be sure to tune in while you are opening presents and enjoying time with your family – the parade is one of those things that makes the holidays that much brighter!
