This is pretty exciting!

HBO and Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit group behind the hit children's show Sesame Street, have made a deal that will bring the next five seasons of the show to HBO and its streaming services this fall!

You done did Ri Ri proud!

Rihanna's newest song B*tch Better have My Money may be the sleeper hit of the Summer, but to one comedy queen, it's everything she needs — aside from Kermit, of course.

In a move we weren't expecting, but totally welcome, the Internet decided that Miss Piggy covering BBHMM was a thing that needed to happen, and we 100 percent approve!

While fan-made videos of people mouthing words to songs usually don't quite sync up, this one does, and it looks as if Miss Piggy was made to channel Rih's bad girl vocals.

| 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.

Did U enjoy the star-studded Red Nose Day??

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!
