So the most controversial show on TV this week, is the newest reboot of the Muppets franchise. A new TV show on ABC which is a more adult version of their usual antics., with Ms Piggy being the host of a late-night show, and the Muppet gang helping out behind the scenes. Reviews have been mixed to say the least.

Personally, I thought it was terrible. The "Office" style of comedies, which this show thrives on, has waned a lot. I wont be watching another episode.

I think one of the more negative parts was the portrayal of Kermit. In the original TV show/Sesame Street, he was disgusted a lot by his coworkers/other Muppets antics. His face would hilariously scrunch from time to time. Now he seems like a shell of his former self.

Not to mention, with the exception of Gonzo, every other Muppet has new voices, with the other ones having retired/died. And thats a big drawback as well.

And yet I can see this lasting a few years, at least.
