The Muppets return to television!

“Are you kidding? We made, like, six movies together, three TV shows…”

It’s been a long time coming, but The Muppets are on their way back to television–this time with a 21st century update on ABC as a single-camera docu-interview style comedy (think The Office).

Even if I haven’t been crazy about the post-Jim Henson era of the Muppets (save for Muppets Tonight, which I think got a lot of things right), they’re still the Muppets, they still do it for me, and, like many parents my age, I’m looking forward to sharing a new Muppet TV experience with my son.

The Muppets airs Tuesdays on ABC this fall.
