Airdate: The Muppets


Good to see Seven has now scheduled The Muppets for later this month.

Kermit The Frog, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, The Great Gonzo and the rest of the gang are back on air, Tuesday, December 29 at 7.30pm.

Filmed in the documentary style of comedies Modern Family, The Office and Parks and Recreation, The Muppets is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the talk show Up Late With Miss Piggy and explores the romances, breakups, successes and failures of these beloved characters as they live their lives in Hollywood. The series features a cavalcade of celebrity guests including Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Groban, Christina Applegate, Laurence Fishburne, Jay Leno, Nick Offerman, Ed Helms, Kristin Chenoweth and Reese Witherspoon.


  1. The comedy is clearly aimed at adults, kids won’t get many of the jokes but I guess that’s the point, they watch for the funny Muppets and the parents for the jokes.

    I think it’s a great show, love the real life guest stars and the underlining story and history of the Muppets.

  2. Hurrah! I thought 7 had thrown it away until next year sometime. Really looking forward to it.

    Although I guess December 29 is just about next year.

    • Certainly is. It would have been nice to see some eps in the lead up to Xmas. At December 29, I can’t imagine it will be on for long before they dump it for Tennis.

  3. Only us oldies are looking forward to this. Imagine all the mums and dads shoving the kids in front of the telly to watch it.
    “What’s a muppet mum” the bored kids will ask.

  4. Interesting to see which side of the PG/M line it falls in this country. Under the new rules Seven can just classify it as M without bothering to even watch it first.

    Unlike the rest of the Muppet’s TV and films, this isn’t targeted at and won’t appeal to young children. We’ll see how many complaints from parents that generates, that Seven can bin, also without reading them.
