Reality TV...now in Muppetvision

Muppets pull strings at ABC
Variety is reporting the Muppets may soon be the stars of their own prime time "reality" show on ABC. "America's Next Muppet" will spoof shows like "America's Next Top Model" and "American Idol" as various new characters compete to become the latest major Muppet star.

How cool would an "Apprentice"-style Muppet show be with Sam the Eagle firing Gonzo wannabes? (and you'd have to have Statler and Waldorf among the judges!)

I loved the Muppets as a kid, but as an adult they can still be appreciated for some smart satire. I'm anxious to see how they send up reality TV.

Alright! You can't go wrong with Muppets (unless you are doing a Pizza Hut commerical with Jessica Simpson- uggg!)

I look forward to this.
