After some behind-the-scenes drama following a high-profile breakup on set, the cast and crew of Up Late With Miss Piggy are kicking off the second half of the season on a much lighter note – literally.

In an adorable new promo for ABC's The Muppets, which was exclusively debuted by Entertainment Weekly, 60 of the iconic characters reunite to promote their show-within-a-show with a souped-up version of the series's original 1970s theme song.

From Miss Piggy and ex Kermit to Gonzo and Fozzie, the lovable gang pops up in brightly colored squares to harmonize the classic tune.

How to Survive a Celebrity Breakup, by Miss Piggy

Originally posted 12/11/2015 04:05PM

You don't have to tell moi that 2015 was a tough year for celebrity couples. I lived it. Gone are those carefree, tabloid-teasing days of power couples "Bennifer," "Blambert" and that most famous of fabulous pairings, "Piggmit" … or were we "Kerggy"? I can never remember.

What is it like being at the center of this celebrity-split maelstrom? Simply put: It stinks! You can call it an "amicable parting," a "trial separation" or an "unconscious uncoupling," but there are no words to describe the heartache, sorrow and massive amounts of paperwork that occur when two celebrities breakup.

The Muppets Reboot Still Cute, Still Fuzzy, but Now with a Little Risqué Business

Originally posted 09/22/2015 08:00PM

The popular old syndicated series The Muppet Show has been given a reboot that's either gentle, radical or both. How you respond to ABC's The Muppets depends on how you regard the sanctity of beloved pieces of brightly colored felt and fur.

The previous series (1976–81) was conceived as a variety show – you know, the thing that I was expecting Neil Patrick Harris to host that turned out to be Best Time Ever. The new Muppets, which is about the behind-the-scenes nonsense that goes into putting together a nightly talk show for Miss Piggy, is shot in the mockumentary style of so many sitcoms, including The Office (The Muppets' opening titles use even the same typeface) or Modern Family. There is no audience laughter and no applause, both of which were conspicuously canned and shrill on The Muppet Show.

This is actually a very attractive change: Rebooted as a sitcom, the production has a physical softness and a baggy looseness that match the Muppets' contours.
