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!
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!
