Watch The Muppets

The Muppets is a reboot of one of the world's most popular shows featuring the very best of Jim Henson's creations. In this version the Muppets team up to put on a new late night talk show starring Ms. Piggy herself. In the show behind a show we get to see how the host and queen diva Ms. Piggy torments her put upon producer and ex-boyfriend Kermit the Frog.

Like all Muppet productions of yore this new program is chock full of guest stars. Stopping by at different points during the year are A listers such as Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Groban, Sofia Vegara, Elizabeth Banks, and The Imagine Dragons.

All of the most popular Muppets play important roles in this new incarnation. Fozzie the Bear serves as Ms. Piggy's sidekick and announcer and has his own storyline centering around his interspecies relationship with his girlfriend and the disapproval of her parents. The Great Gonzo serves as the show's head writer and Scooter takes on the task of booking the guests for the difficult to impress host. The house band for "Up Late with Ms. Piggy" is of course Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem helmed by Dr. Teeth him self and features the overactive drummer, Animal. Other show employees include favorites such as Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Beeker, Rowlf the Dog, Rizzo the Rat, and the Swedish Chef. The Muppets resident hecklers Statler and Waldorf have taken up residence in the live studio audience.

The Muppets is show in documentary style and has all of the characters giving candid interviews about their day to day roles on the show. As expected, one major running plot line will be the relationship between Ms. Piggy and Kermit as they both try to move on from their union and continue to produce their show.
