The Muppet Show was a huge success in syndication back in the 1970s but the follow-up series Muppets Tonight ran for two short seasons before being cancelled by ABC in 1998. Is the public ready for another Muppet TV show? Will this one be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
Set in a mockumentary style, The Muppets follows the lives of the crew behind talk show Up Late with Miss Piggy. Diva Miss Piggy is still driving Kermit the Frog and the rest of the gang crazy. The Muppeteer performers include Steve Whitmire, Eric Jacobson, Dave Goelz, Bill Barretta, David Rudman, Matt Vogel, and Peter Linz.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
