The show itself had a couple funny lines, but overall it fell a bit flat. The plot is actually just The Comedians, the show from earlier this year with Billy Crystal and Josh Gad. A mockumentary about the behind-the-scenes of a variety show. So, good job just ripping off something else?
There’s also some pretty blatant sexist undertones, but because it’s under the guise of Miss Piggy (and she’s not real), they don’t matter. Except they do, especially for a show geared towards children, and even if it is just a muppet, there’s no need to repeatedly remind a female character that she’s fat, or have her come across as crazy.
I could see if you enjoy the Muppets in general, or if you have children you may enjoy this show, but it’s simply not for me.
The Muppets airs Tuesdays at 8pm on ABC.
