Ed Sheeran Duets With Kermit The Frog To Raise Money For Red Nose Day!

| Filed under: Ed SheeranThe MuppetsCharity

Ed Sheeran can do no wrong!

Practically every heavy hitter in Hollywood came out for NBC's Red Nose Day on Thursday, but it was the night's first musical performance that impressed us the most.

That's because Ed Sheeran and Kermit the Frog sang a duet of The Rainbow Connection as they tried to raise money for charities all around the world and it was just lovely.

We love that Ed always commits to his bits.

ABC Basically Remade The Office With The Muppets! Watch The First Trailer For The 'Adult' Sitcom HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsThe Muppets

The Muppets haven't been on primetime TV since 1980, so this is a pretty big deal!

But instead of an Saturday Night Live-style variety show, this time they're going for something more Modern!

[ Video: See The Muppets' Perform Biz Markie's Just A Friend! ]

Kermit, Miss Piggy, and the gang are using the single camera sitcom style, complete with direct-to-camera confessionals popularized by The Office and later used by ABC on their hit Modern Family.

Even the show's title font looks like The Office!

But of course they're also keeping their trademark self-referential humor! Gonzo even calls out that the doc-style device is overused!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the first trailer for The Office Parks And Rec Modern Family The Muppets coming to Tuesdays this fall on ABC!

The Muppets Are Returning To TV With A More Adult, Documentary-Style Series! Will Kermit And Miss Piggy Get Naked?!

| Filed under: TV NewsThe MuppetsGIFs

The Muppets are coming back with a more adult show!

We can't wait to see how this turns out!

The Muppets are coming back to TV on ABC with a documentary-style series that will take on a more adult bent.

The show is being described as "a more adult Muppet show, for kids of all ages," which sounds like a contradiction, but then again "more adult" doesn't necessarily have to mean it's not kid-friendly.

The new show will delve deeper into the stories of our beloved Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, and the rest, focusing on their personal and professional lives, romantic relationships, successes and failures, and all that good stuff!

We're intrigued by the documentary style of the show. After the success of similar style series like The Office and Modern Family, it could be a huge hit!

The Big Bang Theory's Bill Prady and Anger Management's Bob Kushell are co-writers and executive producers of the project.

Are you guys excited for this? It sounds pretty cool!

Check out an official picture recently released from the show in the gallery (above)!

Kermit The Frog Responds To Lookalike … And Flirts With Rosie Perez?!

| Filed under: TV NewsThe MuppetsFrogViral: Animals

Frog stole my look!

Kermit the Frog appeared on The View Tuesday to talk about his viral doppleganger.

Apparently, scientists over at the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center have discovered a species of frog with more than a passing resemblance to The Muppet. It's called Diane's Bare-hearted Glassfrog or Hyalinobatrachium dianae.

Miss Piggy would NOT approve!
